Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

It's a Beautiful Day- January 18, 2020

To celebrate Kiff's birthday,  we went to the Los Angeles temple as a family to do work for our ancestors. Here's a glamorous shot of me scrunching my eyes from the glare, but with the building behind me. This is where Brian and I were married,  where both of our sets of parents were married and a place that makes us so happy to visit. I had time alone while Brian and Kiff were in the baptistry. I did initiatories and went up to the Celestial room afterwards. It's a gorgeous room that is quiet, with lots of couches or chairs for you to sit with others or by yourself to pray, talk reverently or meditate.  It's the only time I've ever had it to myself. I sat for a good long time and had a good long talk with Heavenly Father about ...things. Then I had a good long think. In the quiet. 
We had a family baptism to attend this evening,  so we left early (no Getty today! 😭) to drive home. I love blue California skies.

Just as we came down the Grapevine,  a cloud appeared over the road. 

And it got bigger.

And we dropped out of the mountains into the valley where it was cloudy and freezing cold. 

We had grocery shopping after the baptism and now I'm so tired. Still, I made time for three hearts.
