While We’re Away – Helen

Helen says that this self-isolation thing is getting old, but there’s still a few books she hasn’t read and old friends she hasn’t spent hours on the phone with yet.

Her Dick Blick delivery has arrived and the dried up frisket and rough absorbent paper has been replaced with new and improved.  She’s been doing some interesting watercolor experiments and while she sacrificed her fingerprints to the old and stubborn frisket, only one of her projects turned into “cat dish place mat.”

As a “Goldilocks” walker she’s been stomping around her property.  You know, not too hot, not too cold, not too windy.  Speaking of Goldilocks, or maybe it’s Rapunzel, she took the scissors to her hair and is no longer getting her bangs in her homemade soup, stew, and spaghetti.  “Actually, this is kinda fun.  l can do whatever I want, whenever I want — in the same cat-fur-covered sweats day after day!”
