Cleaning Vinyl Surfaces

4/14/14 Monday in Hohenwald,TN (Natchez Trace-TT)

It started raining at 1 am instead of 3 am, but of course we were ready. Kept hearing it through the night but the good thing is it wasn’t real heavy most of the time, though there was a lot of wind. In the morning I checked our D/S leak. It was just a little damp and that slide is out.

I spent my morning cleaning house with several small extra projects: cleaning the shower, dusting the mini blinds, cleaning our heat pump and space heater filters and the best one: cleaning our vinyl chairs. We’d learned at the Rally that Neutragena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser is the best way to clean vinyl. It’s in an upside down tube (lid at bottom) and colored orange. You’ll find it in the skin care section of a drug store. Most everything else I’ve tried just didn’t get down into the “pores” like this does. John’s chair almost looks new!

We decided to put off Nashville until tomorrow because now the rain is supposed to come in the afternoon, with big thunderstorms. No sense driving in that, much less treking between various Rvs. In the end the rain held off until nighttime. Go figure. I enjoyed my wonderful crime mystery book while John enjoyed his old Western TV shows. It’s so nice to have the choice to take it easy when you feel like it. It’s supposed to get really cold tonight (not freezing until tomorrow), with possibility of snow flurries. Windy still.

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.
