Wonderful Day’s End

3/25/13 Monday at Columbus, TX (Colorado River Campground-TT)

What a difference a day makes! The night before last we were so hot we barely needed sheets at bedtime. Last night we were happy to put our heavy covers on the bed and crawl into that warmth. They say that’s a Texas Spring – big shifts in the weather. It’s about 15 degrees cooler than normal these next days, with wind. We should be happy, so much of the nation is getting blessed with snow right now.

This morning, after our normal morning routine, I cleaned house. It feels good – a nice clean refrigerator and house. Then Sam called and we finished up paperwork.

In the afternoon we went grocery shopping, treating ourselves to a couple pints of Blue Bell Ice Cream. Can’t wait to eat that! John also got a battery replaced in his watch by a clerk at WalMart. Those Texans sure do love to say “Y’all”. Thank Y’all. How Y’all doing? Have a good day Y’all. Hope to see Y’all again….. sweet.

For the rest of our quiet day we meandered on the Internet. I’d have rather sat outside and soaked in the sunshine, but it’s cold out there!

The first wonderful: News from our realtor that the inspection revealed several minor electrical issues that the buyer wants addressed. The buyer proposes that they would fix those issues in exchange for some furniture pieces (left in condo for “staging”). That’s great from my perspective. They handle the coordination of electrical work, getting it done to their satisfaction while I just let them have some furniture that I have to sell in some form any way! Easy for me this way, and nice for them!

Next wonderful: We walked the hiking trail here after supper. So beautiful, the sun setting behind trees and forest, deer everywhere eating their supper.

Final wonderful: Blue Bell Ice cream!!!

May your days end in “wonderful” too! (John’s translation: May your day’s end be wonderful too!)


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.
