Making New Plans

8/1/13 Thursday at Jefferson, OH (Kenisee Lake-TT)

It’s a beautiful, sunny day, so, naturally, all morning we did more research, considered all kinds of alternatives. Part of the issue is we have to find a place over the Labor Day weekend. Not easy at the last minute, not easy with saving money at campgrounds when this is when they can expect the big bucks.  I also spent a lot of time getting my month’s photos (over 700) organized.

Even after lunch, more phone calls, gathering information. We got pretty weary with it all, so both took naps. Then I cut John’s hair. We contacted Karen and Sherie and they were ready for visiting too, so we had a great time sharing. They told us about a cruise they’re taking in January out of Florida. Hmm. We’ll look into that. They also suggested we could try to change our flight from out of Baltimore to out of Indianapolis, with much less driving. More items to look into tomorrow.

Back at our rig we discussed it all some more. Even after spending all day at this, we still haven’t reached a decision.  Then after supper took a walk. It’s not because we wanted to, but we both realized there was just too much sitting around with mental work and needed the exercise.   I even got a phone call while we were walking, so it went really fast for me.

We watched a tape of the show “The Profit” on CNBC.  Marcus, the lead businessman, is CEO of Camping World.  We’d seen him at a Good Sam Ralley, so we were entices.  We enjoyed it.

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.
