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…

Carpe Diem! - February 17, 2020

An embarrassingly long time ago I ordered this tabletop photo studio. 

Tonight I broke it out of its package and put it together.

The pictures are stunning! 

I made three of these today from pieces I'd partially folded while listening to YouTube videos about this week's Come Follow Me lesson.

At study group last night I was in admiration with Martin's enthusiasm for the scriptures. (Nearly) every time he teaches Sunday School, I learn something that shakes me. For too long I've believed I'm incapable of deep gospel learning. I'm going to importune God to help me learn.

For too long I've thought a lot of things. Won't it be so sad to go back to God after this life and realize all the lost opportunities we had? Carpe diem!
