Goodby Gettysburg Farms

9/1/14 Monday in Dover,PA (Gettysburg Farms-TT/OW)

Thanks to Bill’s suggestion we turn on our A/C in the living room (so we wouldn’t hear it), setting it at 70 degrees, we had a comfortable night. Thanks Bill!! That was better than our little fan in the bedroom. According to the weatherman this is HHH weather. I think that means Haze, Heat and Humidity. Yuck! Why I’ll never live in the East. Thus we pretty much stayed in the rig except for taking some pictures around the campground.

In the morning I cleaned house while John watched his TV shows. After lunch, which included corn on the cob, we talked to our son Joe and our sister-in-law Karen. Lovely way to spend an hour or so. Then some reading and computer time. John tried a small walk but returned soon, sweating.

Our afternoon was similar: I on the computer, John spending some of his time outside when Larry returned from his repair appointment. I finished the evening watching “Breaking Bad” episodes from Season 2.

From an earlier walk, some images of their cute farm animals:

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.
