Lost Mouse Found

5/14/15 Thursday in Bullhead City, AZ (Ridgeview RV-ROD)

We slept pretty well last night. Thank heavens for that paddle fan!! Another hot, very windy (20-30 mph) day today.

A little adventure for our morning time: John couldn’t find his computer “mouse”. After much looking he wondered if it had fallen in the garbage container that I’d taken to the big garbage dump, down our road. So we ventured into the windy day and searched that dump. I noted that there seemed to be lots of stuff that had been added since I’d put it there last night. Both the lids had blown over (still attached but not covering the garbage. As I was trying to get a lid put back John found our garbage bag and voila, his “mouse” was there!

Because of the heat and wind we pretty much hung out in our “slides in” RV. I’m so glad this rig is so livable with the slides in. We did manage to dash out to shop for gaskets (no luck), then groceries – at Safeway. This was our first time in a Safeway since we left the West. Nice store, this one. I even found the honey bars I love (they only have nuts, fruit and honey in them), for when we need food while traveling or exploring.

We were treated to rain at night. It seems big storms here mean lots of wind, but little rain. This sure is desert – Mohave, I think.

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.
