At Home Again and Bathroom Plunger Cleaned of Gunk

10/30/14 Thursday in Advance, NC (Forest Lake-TT)

Just relaxed with Internet research, TV and reading this morning. One big positive: I found a Microwave/Convection Above the Range Oven that fits perfectly in our slot, so if/when it gives up the ghost, we know what to replace it with. After lunch I started cooking my rice then we found time to take our wonderful walk around the campground, stopping a bit at the office to pick up our paperwork that says we are staying here until 11/6. When we got back to our site and posted our new departure date I got the finished rice into the fridge.

Time for our big trip of the day: grocery shopping in Lexington. John wanted to go his way, getting us briefly lost, both on the way to the store and from the store. Needless to say, we did manage to find our way home.  Nothing else exciting to report for the rest of our night, except that John cleaned his bathroom sink plunger/stopper from piles of gunk!  Yay!

Note: this was a beautiful day, thus perfect to discover new places/experiences. I have a list but we’ve decided that most are not that interesting for us; Boone’s Cave Park, Davidson County Historical Museum, Richard Childress Vineyards, Bob Timberlake Gallery. Others are too far away for what they offer; Guilford Courthouse NMP and Seagrove Inc. (the last is closer to our next campground). John doesn’t want to see Reynolda Mile/Botanical Garden for political reasons: JR Reynolds (tobacco). Nascar is featured near Winston-Salem, but we really aren’t interested in that.

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.
