Easy Day

6/28/13 Friday at St Clair, MI (St Clair-TT)

It rained all night, apparently, but we didn’t hear it and slept pretty well. Once we’d meandered through our morning chores, we drove (raining) to the lodge with our computers and spent time posting blog, researching as well as checking blogs and emails until noon.

Since it was actually a bit cool, we had soup for lunch, then went grocery shopping and mailed a birthday card for our grandson. After we got our groceries safely put away, we called on our English friends, Pauline and Allan. We all enjoyed a lovely visit until supper time.

Didn’t need to run our air conditioner today, so that was nice.  Those mosquitoes are still out to get us though.  I hate mosquito repellent.

Our supper was different: wine with sauerkraut leftovers and toast with butter, then pumpkin pie for desert. Sort of strange bedfellows, but fun to eat.

I finished “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” by Stieg Larsson. Wow, great read!

PS: Since the “good check” from our auction guy still hadn’t arrived at the Post Office, I called him. He said he hadn’t mailed it yet. I asked if he had our “bad” check. He hadn’t seen it in his mail, but he’d check right now. I mentioned that our neighbor had mailed it several days ago. Finally, he spotted it in his stack of mail. He says he’ll mail a “good check” Monday. We’re crossing our fingers! He doesn’t strike me as very well organized….


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.
