Just Hanging Out

11/6/13 Wednesday at Fair Play, SC (Carolina Landing-TT)

Special treat this morning: John used some Amish cheese we’d purchased in Jefferson,OH to make omelets. Yum. John put together our crock pot dinner of sauerkraut and sausage. I checked out emails and the like while John watched TV, then he cleaned the bugs off the front windshield and covered our tires. We went to see if Greg and Marcia were at their rig and ran into Chad. We got talking and brought him back to our rig to see the route we’d figured out to take from here to Yemessee, SC (Oaks at South Point-TT). He’d come here from there and mentioned the pain it was having to get off the Interstate to go through the town of Greenville. Our review showed that it appears we can take exit 51 off I-85 to get onto I-385. Since John will be having his hearing test at Costco tomorrow, we’ll be near there, so we’ll check it out in the car. It sure helps to have advice from those who’ve been there before us.  While he was here I started to show him our Fantastic Fan but it would not turn on.  The fuse at the fan is good as well as the fuse at the 120 box.  Such a puzzlement.  Always something.

By now it was lunchtime already! Then we took off for a nice walk to the Lake here.

Lots of hills so we got a workout. We went around to the various buildings here and ran into Chad again. We shared our knowledge of Thousand Trails. He just got a Zone Pass (Southeast) when he bought his new Navion IQ. Next we came home to read (Trish) and watch old TV shows (John), interrupted by our crock pot supper. A game of dice to finish the night, with some TV thrown in for good behavior.

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.
