Another Cold Windy Day

5/2/14 Friday in Wilmington, OH (Wilmington-TT)

Last night was better. Either John’s rest yesterday or our new bottle of Robitussin helped. Of course now I’ve got a sore throat. Life Together.

This morning John was exceptionally ambitious and worked at really cleaning out our hot water tank. Possible because of all that he learned the hard way when he tried it a few weeks ago and because of the “wand” we bought at Camping World to send a fast stream of water into the tank. He said it went well and piles of gunk came out. No spraying on John either! Meanwhile I cuddled inside getting my photos from last month organized.

For the afternoon we went grocery shopping again. You’d think we were starving but its just that some things were best purchased at Costco and we were completely out of milk and orange juice so it was time to buy them at Kroger. We can’t fit twice the milk and oj so that’s why we couldn’t get them yesterday. Since Costco was near Cincinnati that’s where we went. Well. That Kroger store was amazing. They call it a “marketplace” store. So large, with delicacies like sushi and incredible looking pastries as well as bulk food. Fun experience just exploring all that.

Back at home we played cards with the girls until supper time. Since I had a sore throat I didn’t join them for a walk afterward. We relaxed with our taped TV shows for our evening. Here’s hoping Spring comes in full force soon.

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.
