A Day of Waiting, Again

8/6/13 Tuesday at Jefferson, OH (Kenisee Lake-TT)

I’ve seen bluebirds every morning lately. So many colorful birds here: goldfinches, cardinals and bluebirds. Nice place if you like birds. I even found a hummingbird’s nest with 1 egg in it, on the ground, under a tree. So tiny.

This turned into a beautiful day, so we were thinking of checking out the covered bridges, BUT, we got involved with calls regarding joining an ROD park. Later we needed to stay close, to get email information that we needed to reply to, to join.

On top of that, the new chassis batteries are, apparently, not charged and last night’s efforts to charge them through our trickle charger didn’t work well, so now Sherie is letting us use her battery charger and they are getting there. Meanwhile, because the engine and generator still won’t start, both John and Sherie feel the problem is beyond them. We have calls into 2 mobile services to see what they might do. So we waited for call backs from them as well.

By the end of the day, we talked to one of the mobile services. Since the Assistant Manager here recommended the other, we’re waiting until tomorrow to hear from them before deciding who to have come. With all our waiting, we forgot to get our milk and eggs, so managed to do that after supper, then got our walk in. Then we enjoyed a fun evening of cards with Karen/Sherie and Marie/Bill until bedtime.


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.
