Beautiful Warm Sunny Day

3/12/13 Tuesday at Columbus, TX (Colorado River Campground-TT)

We both were in the mood for a quiet day today. Believe it or not, sometimes I feel guilty for not dashing off on some exploration of the area, like that’s a big part of why I write this blog – to share news of new places. On the other hand, we just don’t have the energy/ambition to do this “vacation” thing every day. Thus, for our sanity, there may be a slew of days where we just don’t “go” anywhere. Lately, it’s been that way. I need to remember that first priority is for us to live our lives, as if no one knew what we were doing.

Plus I’ve had a sore throat lately and just realized it’s probably post nasal drip-yea spring! So I’ve started gargling salt water and taking antihistamines. It’s getting better now.

This morning I worked on the blog at the Activity Center (John’s phone hot spot just can’t manage photo uploading) and emails. John found out yesterday that our LED lights were made with the smallest of the 3 sizes of tines that RV original under cabinet lights have, so he just needed to kink the tines for them to make contact and work. We have all our lights working now!

After lunch we took a nap, then realized how gorgeous it was outside, so we set up our chairs and read in the sunshine until we got too hot, then moved into the shade.

Supper was chili (crock pot cooked), then a walk as the sun was setting.

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.
