Trish Plays Homemaker While John Enjoys Golf Hall of Fame

3/7/14  Friday at St. Augustine, FL (St. John’s RV-PPA ($26/night)

So tired, we slept in. Must have been that discussion with DISH. It was pretty cold outside, dripping rain and windy so I suggested that John enjoy his Golf Hall of Fame while I stay home and run the wash loads. For the morning we caught up on our computer reading while watching taped Olympics events.

Since it didn’t seem to get any warmer than the 44 degrees of this morning and the wind was still blowing I was really glad we chose to not see St. Augustine. We spent a day touring Key West when it was very cold – it takes a lot away from your experience. So after lunch John took off for the Golf Hall of Fame and I happily got busy making goodies: Granola bars and Pumpkin Seed Muffins. Such a perfect thing to do on a cold day. Plus I could do lots of wash loads being here all day. Of course, there was time to watch some TV as well. Ah, such a good time making things cozy with cooking and playing lazy with TV, cuddled in my afghan. When I was at work this was the kind of day I dreamed of having when I retired.

Here are some photos of our Miss Zanzibar in her site here. And one from the Golf Hall of Fame (the golf club used on the moon). Golf is the only sport ever played off the planet.

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.
