Warmer Restful Day

10/27/13 Sunday at Lenoir, NC (Green Mountain Park Resort-TT/MA)

At church we enjoyed a couple playing guitars and singing. An adorable group of children sang “This Little Light Of Mine” too. Afterward we went to Lowes for a new space heater, one recommended by our friends last night(Delonghia). They’d bought the last one here, but we were going to give it a try anyway. At Lowes we learned that 6 will be coming in today, so we’re in luck. We also purchased some new light bulbs, so when we got back home John installed them. The ones that burnt out were the decorative style, like a candle flame. We found some LED lights that were in that style but much shorter, with the same base. They work!! With 50,000 hours of light, it’ll take 134 years for them to burn out, at 1 hour a day.

After lunch we worked on our computers.

I got ambitious and made a pumpkin pie from scratch while John went to Lowe’s and bought the Delonghi brand ceramic heater. Of course, the RV was pretty warm (75 degrees) from my baking efforts, so we’ll see how it does tonight & in the early morning. It won’t be so cold tonight so we’re staying connected to city water. Supper was most delicious: lasagna and pumpkin pie, all with wine.

I watched my TV shows, which John endured until “The Mentalist” which he likes 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.
