Our Day of Rest

2/24/13 Sunday at Lakehills, TX (Medina Lake Campground-TT)

Made it to 10:00 am Mass. Another small church where the music is played on an electric keyboard and the choir seemed to be members of the parish who sat near that keyboard. Very few others sang (except me, of course!). They like saying prayers as we waited for Father who was held up by a slow driver on Parkway 35. More prayers after the announcements. I especially liked their prayer for rain. It’s looking like we could get rain tonight.

Back at home, I cleaned house. After a nice lunch with ham we joined Karen and Sherie at the hot tub. Then I went to the lodge to get more blog posted. I got back in time for a supper of leftovers. Once those dishes were done we pulled in the slides (in case of rain), because we’re moving to John’s sister’s place in McQueeny, TX tomorrow.  We’re so excited to actually be arriving there soon.  There are predictions of wind up to 40 mph, but John is confident it’s not going to be so strong until later in the day.

We topped the night off with an evening of the Oscars and cards with Sherie and Karen. ‘Night all.


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.
