Rain Rain Go Away, Come Again Some Other Day

5/15/14 Thursday in Jefferson, OH (Kenisee Lake-TT)

Rain – all day. As if we hadn’t had enough. On Flood Warning since yesterday. So far the park seems to be holding up under all this rain.

For the morning we walked to the lodge with our lap tops, to do our computer reading with their free WiFi (not very strong) and watch the lodge TV. Apparently there are about 10 rigs with people here now. The pre season travelers.

After lunch I baked my granola bars (I always eat one on travel day because I don’t use dishes that I’d need to clean).

Rainy days are perfect for cooking. Then, to switch things up, we played cards. Two games of “13”, which John won and two games of “Golf” which I won. I wonder what that means? John got a couple projects knocked off: replace broken (hold drawer closed) bracket on my drawer and he straightened the closets support bar (shower rod) which had shifted on our rough travels. I started work on our stink bug trap. We started on a walk, but the rain came, so back to the rig. Then I read while John watched Bonanza.

We did manage a walk after supper, then more rain that night. Sigh.

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.
