Project Day

3/30/15 Monday in Whitney, TX (Lake Whitney-TT)

Best night’s sleep in a long time. Maybe it was last night’s hot tub time. Maybe it was cool enough. We’re so grateful.

I got ambitious cleaning house while John cleaned the bugs off our windshield, then fixed a part that was pulling away from our entry door with a screw. Then he fixed the sink plunger that someone (who me?) pulled out while cleaning. When we finished lunch we tackled our Tire Pressure Monitoring System. One of our new sensors still didn’t work at a certain trouble spot (driver’s side inside rear dual). After some testing via our Tire Tracker company we found out the sensor was fine but our valve stem needs adjusting-it wasn’t connecting with our sensor. Not uncommon with extended valve stems.

We had a great time talking a while with our son Joe, outside while the birds were just singing away. Next John called the Silverleaf people because his had just stopped working on our last trip. After a long effort of installing and checking things out, they determined that we needed another Silverleaf box and cord, so it’s due to arrive Monday. Meanwhile I worked on the blog and other computer affairs. Then I called our carpet seller since I hadn’t seen an invoice. Apparently he’d had a harrowing brush with death and was just getting back to his business lately.

It was a lot of little things yet it felt great to get so many checked off my to do list.

Just to let you see how hidden we are in the trees here:

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.
