Waiting..All Day

3/26/13 Tuesday at Columbus, TX (Colorado River Campground-TT)

First job: drive to Columbus Post Office to mail mom’s condo keys to the Realtor. I’m waiting to hear from our Realtor regarding the Inspection Report and Resale Certification so I can move things along (like furniture) from my end. Beautiful day, though cool, so we took a walk in the morning – over an hour through the woods and grasses of this campground. So peaceful. We even came across a small palm tree and baby prickly pear near the woods and a feral cat, hunting. We’ve been waiting for over 2 weeks to have our awning pull strap replaced. It had broken off when John tried to pull out our awning the first day here. The Mobile repair shop said it had arrived (last week) but they wouldn’t come to install it until Tuesday (today), because they have an air conditioner to fix as well. Okay. Even after calling him, we never saw or heard from him all day.

After lunch we determined to work on our path from New Orleans. John’s done most of the prep, but then there are the details. We got distracted talking with another couple about their travels. We got reservations for Natchez State Park, so that should be nice.

We enjoyed our sauerkraut and sausage supper, then relaxed with TV and books.

Our day ended with nary a call from anyone – Realtor or RV Repair. Sure hope things are happening tomorrow, our last day here at Colorado River.



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.
