Hurry Up and Wait

2/17/15 Tuesday in Wildwood, FL (Three Flags RV Resort-TT/MA)

Up at 6 am (via an alarm, gasp!) to be ready for Ed. When he didn’t show by 7:30 we went over to the office. I asked the receptionist hesitantly about calling Lori, explaining our expectations. She explained that they have to get things ready, so it would be more realistic to expect techs to come between 7:15 am and 7:45 am. Ok. Sure enough, he was at our rig right about then, at 7:40 am.

They predicted lots of rain this afternoon, so I was happy to take a nap while John read. Then the bad news. Our extended warranty needs all items to be diagnosed before they’ll decide whether they need to send an inspector. The appliance specialist won’t be able to look at our dryer and refrigerator until Wednesday afternoon. He’ll come to our coach, so no getting ready early in the morning! Only after his diagnoses can Alliance send in their claim for us.

The good news is we get to spend the rest of the day in Miss Journey – much more comfortable than “homeless” at the office. We didn’t want to “explore” because of the rain and I feel the more rest I get the sooner I get over whatever I have. We did manage a trip to the grocery store just before the rains started, then had lunch. A real lazy life – reading for both of us and old TV shows for John during those intermittent rain showers. We also brought all the slides out – for our comfort and to see how the closet leak does during this rain.

Alliance is one of the best!

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.
