Corona-tined

Im-okay-you-okay

Nobody likes an “I’m sick” post but I thought I better put something up since it’s been a minute. No, I am not sick with covid-19. Phew! I just have a regular head cold and it’s not really that big of a deal.

I’ve been thinking of all kinds of creative things I can do with this blog when I’m feeling better. Share some art, share some art process, document every stupid silly thing?

Quarantine is great for creative people. In fact, I’m not even letting myself start a puzzle because I know once I do I will get sucked into it and I won’t spend my time doing something more productive, like working on a book, working on a craft, or writing some interesting blog content.

But I just wanted to check in and say hi. I haven’t been able to visit my parents because I am sick but they are doing well. We talk every day on the phone and my mom is STILL losing weight. Can you believe it? My dad has been cooking all my recipes and even making some of his own. So far they are healthy and doing well. Everybody’s a little stir-crazy but what else is new?

The kids are with their others but they will be back Monday and school seems to be in full swing. I get emails from Bug’s teacher every other hour. I actually like them. Her teachers are working really hard to send out positive messages and keep everyone focused. I really wonder what life will be like when this pandemic is over.

My anxiety about loved ones dying is through the roof but good thing I’ve learned a ton of tricks to help with that. How are you guys coping? I’m wishing I lived next door to an opera singer. But my garden is pretty and the dogs are my constant companions.
