Hanging Out All Day

2/6/13 Wednesday at St. David’s, AZ (St. David RV-Western Horizons)

We really took it easy today, since we’ll be moving a good ways tomorrow. In the morning I exercised to a 4 mile walking tape with Karen and Sherie while John joined the “Liar’s Club” – guys talking. We read some, then had the last of our tortilla soup.

For the afternoon, we spent time in the hot tub and sunshine, reading some more. Afterward, Sherie helped us get our local TV antenna working (it needed lubricating). Now we understand how to get it set up and to scan for stations. We also learned we’ll need bug spray as we head east, to keep the pests out of our rig. Plus our cheapie NOAA radio can’t find stations now, just static, so we’ll need to get a good one soon – for those states east of here.

Something new for supper: 1 can Bavarian sauerkraut (includes caraway seeds) cooked on low in a crock pot all day with sweet onions, ½ C applesauce, ½ lb. Smoked sausage, 1 T butter. Yum! You can’t believe how good and different it is. Recipe thanks to Karen!




About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
