Weekend League

WENTWORTH BY THE SEA. I can tell you that these pics DO NOT tell an accurate picture. The club is breath-takingly beautiful.

My ranking was boosted, this season and today was my first game playing as a new 3.5! My awesome partner and I WON!!! It was a hard fought game. :D !

Along the path to the indoor courts and back, I took pics of the awesome Wentworth By The Sea's club, the golf course and it's tennis courts. Wow, what a club and the foliage the seacoast is having right now is FaNTaStiC!

Although we played inside today, these are Wentworth's outdoor courts. They were beautiful and staggered in a zigzag pattern with a nice table and chair setup between each of the courts.

There was a Hole 19. Wondered if they serviced the outdoor courts, too?!!? But, I have to admit that with this club, it's all about the golf and the ocean view.

At the risk of sounding like a vacation review column, if you are a golfer and have the Game, this is the "Fall Foliage Romantic Getaway Club". With the hotel, I'd definitely recommend it for ANY AGED romantic. (Ah, to think, I went home...), THIS is the place to stay to see the fall colors, play some golf and tennis.

What a beautiful day, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL CLUB. Great partner. Good win. Fun ride home. Excellent eats when I got home.... Great Sunday.

Fall Swamp Foliage

(Say that 10xs fast! LOL!!!)

Really starting to look good, in the way back of the property.

This is such a great time of year. Oh, I know I say that with every season. I must sound like a Happy Idiot, year 'round! :D

GORGEOUS!

Spectacular sunset.

Took this on the way to the club. Couldn't believe how beautiful and just had to pull over to snap a photo.

Zentangle Fish

Fun little project.

Zentangle is creating patterns and textures with pen and ink. Very relaxing form of art!

Some pieces are very detailed and beautiful. I enjoyed drawing this, although it took a bit of time, more than you'd think.

Wondering 'Round Again!

Early this morning...

Eating their breakfast, right next to the road. Boy, these guys really have no fear!!!

This pic is a little blurry because I had to snap the photo while slowly navigating around the turkeys (some were very close to the road), without a co-pilot. Hey, at least I didn't immediately text while driving! :D

Finally Finished!

And just in time for the chilly willy weather!

I based this cardigan on a red children's pullover, called "Red" from the book Cable Confidence. Been in a cardigan sweater mood, lately. So I looked for a cute sweater to turn into a cardigan. The XOXOs were so cute and I love bobbles. This sweater screamed to be made!

This Time of Year

Brings out the fun things!

There were about 18 turkeys in the field. Really seem to be enjoying their breakfast!

It is usually early fall, when the wild flocks of turkeys become very active, walking around (anywhere in town). A couple times, we've had them in our yard. And to my surprise, a Turkey Hawk, a while back!!! Never hear about anyone hunting them. (Good! They are fun to see.)

Flew Over Head This Morning

Was fun to see the balloon flying overhead! It's been a little while, but this morning was a nice crisp, cool morning to fly.

Mandragora

Mandragora (common name; Mandrake)

Belonging to the nightshades family. The roots sometimes resemble human figures.

Look like frog's legs! (Oh no!!! Prince Charming!)

Now it looks like a scrawny chicken!

Mandrake ready for picking!!!

Hey, if the deer won't let me grow plants in the gardens, then maybe I'll just knit my own!

I knitted this using the I-cord, bobbles, and the Magic Loop method on circular needles. Since it was worked in the round, there were no seams to sew. The only hand-sewing was attaching branches, the leaves, root strands and creating the bark-like texture and features.

Yarn used is the Red Heart Super Saver. Needles - US #5.

I MOST DEFINITELY suffer from Artistic Attention Deficit Disorder. I am almost done with the sweater I am knitting but put it on hold to finally make this guy. I have really wanted to make him for a long time. Past couple days I have been in a waiting area of some kind or another and wanted a small project to knit, (instead of dragging around what is now an almost complete sweater). This was a nice, small project to keep me busy and after seeing Guardian of the Galaxy with my older daughter, I thought this was finally the time to try my own root-person!

New School Hours

It has been decided that kids need more sleep and should wake up after 8:00.

Huh? Here in Amherst, the school day starts 5 minutes earlier (7:25) and lasts 20 minutes longer in the afternoon (2:19). Mama likes the extra couple minutes!

Also heard students have the option to go for 1/2 days, in other schools (and finish their other classes online). That probably will never fly in this town either. Bringing them into the Internet Age was a task, in itself... required so much remapping of rooms, funds and wiring (my daughter's first day of 3rd grade, the computer room caught on fire because of electrical overload!!! LOL!) To have Amherst change THAT MUCH would be incredible!

Sitting In The Drive Thru Line

Looking across the parking lot, I couldn't help noticing how much it is starting to look like fall, around New Hampshire.

LOVE New England in the Fall.
