Ok, Iím all caught up.

Today I had my oil painting class. Ehh it turned out passable. Not a roaring success but passable. The different styles were fantastic. People they really know how to turn a general instruction into a variety of individual styles. The lone gentleman, was quite good. I really liked what he did. Very unique. The lady next to me was very cubist. It really was eye opening how the same picture and the same instructions could be so wildly interpreted. The 5 hours went by so quickly.

Then when I left it was snowing and at the same time the sun was shining! Brrr 🥶 itís so cold today. Subzero temperatures windchill. Iím now in my chair under a blanket with a poncho my daughter gave me, drinking hot chocolate. Brrr 🥶

Itís nice being old, I donít worry about things the way I used to. Even ten years ago I would have worried how bad my art was instead of just enjoying it and marveling on the different interpretations. I would have been constantly comparing and finding myself wanting. And feeling insecure and intimidated. Instead I enjoyed myself and chatted with those nearest me.

Iím completely over flu and pneumonia. My muscular strength and respiratory strength arenít there yet. It takes very little to tire me or get me out of breath. For you who know me, I do so much better when I stay productive and active. Iím slipping into a depression. Could be that or cutting out Lithium and Vraylar or both factors. Going to get a good nightís sleep tonight and hopefully start fresh tomorrow.

I made plans to meet daughter in Gatlinburg in mid April and meeting for breakfast next Sunday.

This weather is crazy - up and down and sideways and whatnot.

I hope everybody has a peaceful evening. Much love

I agree. Getting older has many advantages. Something I do notice, though, is that far too many older people carelessly become mean. When we stop caring how we treat others it seems to me that life becomes rather meaningless.

Iíve been packing and cleaning since 6:30. Itís now 5pm and Iíve just sat down on my bed. My feet are sore. Iím on track though for where I wanted to be so thatís good.

Gotta figure out a schedule for each day this week - which rooms I want to tackle and stick to it.

The more furniture I move around the more dust I find so thereís going to be more cleaning involved than I originally thought.

Back to the drawing board with this planning schedule.

Does anyone else not care really if we were to get nuked or something by China or Russia? Like I am not S at all or even really all that depressed, but like if someone else were to do it for me then I wouldn't really mind that.

I think you are telling that you may be a little fed up with your life's circumstances. Sometimes we all are! That is to be human.

I think we have to live in the times we are living in, now. I mean of course I sometime think about when/if the Ukraine war will spread. But I try to not let it occupy my days. One of my relatives died in WWII. Just as he didn't know that his life would end in that war, we don't have to worry too much about our lives.

If atom bombs are used, I hope it will go quick, because pictures of living people from Hiroshima after the bomb look awful.

I feel better today! Pain mostly in my left arm and it hurts to try to stretch it out, but this condition is almost like a blessing compared to yesterday's pain.

Iím so glad you went to the painting class. That sounds like so much fun! Iím glad you had a good time, it is interesting how different people have different styles of painting and the same painting can come out very different for every person

I struggle with the perfectionistic thinking in my artwork/painting etc. I hope someday that gets easier. But I do love it and it relaxes me a lot so thatís what matters

Hot chocolate under a blanket sounds good too!

Your feeling reminds me of something Vincent Van Gogh wrote. Something like, I do not seek death, but if it comes I will not resist.

But he also wrote
"It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.Ē

I finished one of the miniatures yesterday. I listened to music while I painted and it really relaxed me. Yesterday I was struggling a lot with dissociation, anxiety; panic , and some negative thoughts.

Today I have to go to the store to buy some cat litter and stuff I need. Not feeling up to it but I know a walk will be good for me.
