Very Cold Windy Day, Perfect for Nesting

1/8/15 Thursday in Wauchula,FL (Peace River Preserve-TT)

Due to the goodies we purchased in Fort Myers, we had some projects to do. John installed the paper towel holder and closet insulation.

paper towel holder

I ordered spice jar labels and carpeting for under the dining table and outdoor steps. I learned of these at a rally a couple years ago:

Home Mats Inc

PO Box 13050

Las Vegas NV 89112-1050


These protected our steps on the Safari so well. The rubber underneath didn’t let water through yet it is safe on top of carpet. Easy to clean. Never deteriorated. Can cut mat to fit steps. Stick on with Velcro so the thickness of a cord doesn’t interfere with the mechanism of your steps.

In the afternoon I baked my cornbread muffins, then Deb stopped by to ask about writing a blog. Then for supper I baked Lasagna.

We didn’t play Pickleball today; it was just too cold and windy!

John enjoyed a lot of TV while I was busy.


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.

    “Very cold.” Right. Here in Michigan it’s very warm: 30 degrees, snow turning into slush. But in a couple of days it’ll be below zero. All I hope is that it snows; that keeps everything picture postcard beautiful. Glad you’re enjoying your new home. Brave move.
