9/30/15 (Wednesday) in Manteca, CA (Turtle Beach Resort -TT)
Our big excitement for today: getting mail (watertight watercolor palette from Amazon.com) and grocery shopping at Safeway. We watched taped TV shows after lunch (John is rubbing off on me), then I drew while John watched his old TV shows until supper. I enjoyed (notice John is now feeling comfortable not coming with me) a lovely walk on a levee/ledge that has such beautiful evening scenes. Each time it’s a different experience. Last night I saw flowers I hadn’t noticed before, tonight I saw a rainbow-its beginning and end. It was so cloudy I didn’t think I’d see anything special, but this was most special. Hard to catch an image of anything well with such low light and a phone camera. The last is what I saw as I turned back for home. These walks are great not just for one’s body, but also for their spirit.
As I’ve noted before, we’re still playing cards at night, before bedtime. This time we decided to do something different, Mille Bornes. I could just feel the new tracks my neurons had to find for this different game.
