Feeling Better; Catch Up Day

2/24/15 Tuesday in Wildwood, FL (Alliance Coach: Repairs)

With more energy today, I was up for doing light housecleaning and writing/posting the blog for the past week. In the afternoon I got caught up on all my computer reading (email/blogs/research) and knocked off some to do items. John, when not watching TV, was busy reading Zane Gray’s “Riders of the Purple Sage”. He’s really enjoying it, similar to his Louis L’Amour books.  I should note that I had finished the 3rd in the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” book series by Stieg Larsson. Fantastic writer, his stories are riveting. So sad that he died shortly after giving his manuscripts to a publisher.

This was a perfect day for all this inside work: it rained most of the time. We did find a break to get some groceries for our supper plans: Chicken a la King, our favorite comfort food. I cooked rice outside in my rice cooker, using our outdoor outlet for the first time. So much nicer than the Safari’s. It is located inside a compartment, with a hole in the floor for the cord to pass through. I don’t need an extension cord! I do this outside so the “rice steam” doesn’t land inside our coach.

Our closet remains dry and the toilet is working perfectly.

Here’s hoping for Spring:rose 1

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.
