Restful Time

11/10/14 Monday in Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA)

I pretty much just spent my morning getting caught up with Internet activities; blog, email, blogs. John watched his TV shows and worked a little at buffing out the branch scratches on Miss Zanzibar.

We talked a little with Greg/Marcia. They then went on a motorcycle ride on this beautiful day and visited the Marine Museum at Parris Island.

This afternoon we took a lovely walk around the pond, then changed the reservations at our next campground for earlier, then shortened our reservation here. We ran into our carpet cleaning man’s wife at the lodge then. She said her husband was at their rig right now if John wanted to talk about going golfing. We proceeded on to their coach and had a nice visit as George and John talked golf mostly, so I left for our rig, where I watched some DVR tapes. In a while John returned to his buffing project, finishing before dark and in time to barbeque our chicken.

Before he started grilling our chicken John asked if I’d ever cleaned house today. I put my hands to my face in shock. I never even thought about it!!!! What’s going on? Come to think of it, this morning I’d given my blueberries 44 minutes in the microwave instead of 44 seconds. After 4 minutes I thought it was taking a long time. Thank heavens the blueberries were frozen and had lots of juice and basically cooked in their juice. Whew!! Then as I was getting ready for supper I put my cooked rice in the MW. I usually give it 33 seconds but this time it was 33 minutes—something I realized in about 1.5 minutes. Another whew! I really need to pay attention whenever I want to cook something for a few seconds.

After our fun supper of grilled chicken we walked all the way over to Greg/Marcia’s. Soon Paul and Barbara joined us for a fun evening of sharing. They just bought a beautiful 2003 Fleetwood American Tradition. It’s truly in a 10 out of 10 condition. They even have an energy management system. Before this they spent 8 years living on a 40 year old boat. It was a gorgeous yacht, really. So they regaled us with quite the tales of adventure. I thought Rving was hard-the water adds a whole other dimension.


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.
