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…

Comforting the Crazy - March 12, 2020



I don't want to remember today as the day the world went crazy, so I'm just going to talk about what I did today.

I had beautiful conversations with friends.

I had terrific message sessions with my siblings where we shared funny quotes & comics. It was fun.

I picked up my prescription with no problem. I avoided grocery stores because they were crowded and I have everything I need (even though I really am worried 21 eggs isn't enough).

Tonight I worked on paintings. I listened to an uplifting lesson on this week's Come Follow Me section. I reveled in the fact that I don't have to play organ this Sunday! (hee hee)

I indexed tonight - it's not going to the temple, but it is connecting people with families, so it's what I can do now.

I played with my cats and marveled at my blooming jasmine (I think it's called pink jasmine - it's pink and viney & smells weird at first and now I love it). The sky was gorgeous & didn't care that the world was bonkers.

I weeded my front flower patch & noticed a bunch of bulbs are coming up. I have no idea what they are so it's a neat surprise just waiting to happen!

I finished this piece. It's very gold & sparkly.


I'll be back tomorrow. Life is good.
