Since the predictions are for rain, we decided to hunker down today. Spent much of the morning at the lodge on the Internet. Nice to get caught up on our reading (emails/blogs). In the afternoon I baked pumpkin pies and John watched his old TV shows. It rained all day, as predicted, so it was perfect to spend a quiet day at home. So wonderful to be able to just decide we’ll stay home because it’s raining all day. Our leak protections seem to be holding up. I’m especially grateful for the paper towel I pushed into the outer corner of our driver’s side slide-that’s holding off the little leaking we had after our repairs at Decatur, IN. Their efforts seem to have solved all the other leak issues. So far, so good.

The rain was heavy all afternoon and into the next morning. We had a tornado watch in the evening, but it ended by 10 pm. We had a crazy night, besides the thunder and rain, trying to watch Dancing With the Stars and Person of Interest at the same time. We can’t use the satellite (thus record shows on DVR) because of the trees (you know, our leaf source), so we have to watch off the local antenna in real time. We need to figure out how to find shows on the Internet I think.

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.
