So, here we are in our third week of lockdown. It has been three weeks now, right? Hard to tell. The days blend together.

On the pro side of things (I don’t let myself think about any cons!)—I’m nearing the end of another book! Yay! My dd has been decorating/rearranging things in the house. It’s so pretty now! Her attention has now turned to the storage sheds. I’m not sure how that means multiple trips to the dump and the burn pile, but she has warned me not to look—so for my mental health, I have not! The kids have really liked their online classes and assignments. Sure, they miss their friends, but they’ve been hanging out on TikTok and FaceTime. They aren’t feeling horribly isolated. Not yet, anyway. And now, Arkansas has made the hard decision to close the schools through the end of the school year. What a relief!

Today, in addition to hopefully getting to the end of my book, I begin my #100dayproject art challenge! I’m stoked! I haven’t done anything to prepare, so I’ll be busy scrambling to do my first pieces. I’m sharing everything I do on Instagram. The good and the bad. (I’m sure there will be lots of horrific, too! 🙂 ) An artist, I am not, but I do love working with paints and color, so it feeds something inside me. Makes me happy. That’s the point.

So, three weeks in, how are you feeling? I saw something from Dr. Fauci saying that our return to normal will mean a “new normal.” Makes me sad that we will forever be hyper-aware of what we touch, who we stand next to, and that this disease will continue to be with us. I’m so very thankful that my family lives in a rural area, away from other people. I can’t imagine how paranoid people living in cities will become.

On a lighter note, I have another puzzle for you! It’s something fun! Solve the puzzle, then answer me this for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card!

If you were to write a YA book using this picture as the cover,
what would the story be about?

    It would be about a young woman looking for her one true love.

    A girl that can talk to animals… they are her friends, but it breaks her heart that no one understands her… the people around her find her odd and keep their distance…

    The question – Not so much. Not a particular fan of the YA genre. But well, this looks like a fae type of story. Or a Dryad. A creature that communes with nature. And of course romance.

    4:20; all alone and looking for love – in all the wrong places.

    A young boy from a rural farm has vivid dreams about a fairy girl living in the forest on the edge of his family farm. One day, while working on the farm, he believes he sees her standing among the trees.

    Keeper of the Heart. She’s known from childhood that she’s the guardian of the Sacred, a task which necessarily separates her from her peers and leaves her with only the forest animals for companionship.
