Spring Cleaning and Our Gasket Is Here News

3/3/14 Monday at Wildwood, FL (Alliance Coach)

Spent my morning cleaning including a special project: cleaning screens and inside of windows. It’s interesting how I will procrastinate doing some maintenance job until one day when I just feel like doing it. It’s like getting started is the hardest part because your thoughts make it harder than it really is. John had his fun talking with our neighbor husbands.

In the afternoon I got our blog days posted. When you’re rushing from one thing to another it’s hard to find time to post to the blog so when you notice nothing is coming forth you know why-we’re too busy.

We got great news at 2:15 pm! Our windshield gasket is here. We’ll have to dump tonight because first thing tomorrow (7 am) the tech will come pick up the coach. It will be in the shop all day, then the tech will drive it to our site. Lori said it’s to stay there (we are not to drive it) until 4 pm the next day, Wednesday. Thus she wanted the dumping not to interfere with it’s repairs.

Just before Lori’s call Linda invited us to a social hour over at Three Flags (TT campground), so we get some good visiting in before supper. I got the other side (now without sun shining on it) of Miss Zanzibar’s windows and screens cleaned before the happy hour while John went to the Post Office for our monthly mail.

We had a great time at the social gathering then returned home for supper. We watched Gonzaga win their last game before their conference tournament. Once again they’re #1 in the WCC, but their rank is lower than its been in some time. Lots of injuries this year. To bed a bit early because we have to get up by the alarm tomorrow.

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.
