Golf for John, Peace and Quiet for Trish

6/12/14 Thursday in Moody, ME (Moody Beach-TT/OW)

John has been itching to play golf and I’d been feeling stressed (probably a carry over from stressing over our 300 mile trip) so it was time to take some time off from one another.

While he played golf I did laundry, worked on the blog, then I walked to the Post Office to see if our EZ pass had arrived. Nope, so I got a nice walk back to Miss Zanzibar. I read with a quiet music background and watched a taped TV show, Barbara Walters: Her Story.

Fun lunch: egg salad on Wasa cracker with pumpkin seed muffin and V-8 juice.

When John got home he was so excited. Not only did he have a great game overall but he had one shot out of a sand trap right into the hole!

He had a great idea – to jump into the hot tub here. I was was cold, I’d have to get into my swimsuit…but figured it could help with the tension I’d been experiencing since our 300 mile trip. That hot tub was the best!! Good and hot and my tight throat melted away. So worth the hassle of getting into a swimsuit on a cold day.

For supper we had a special treat: grilled sirloin steaks with fried potato slices for John. Our evening was spent mostly reading with the TV struggling (with reception) in the background.

Here we are for the brief time after our neighbor left and others showed up by evening.



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.
