For one week a year Augusta Georgia is on the map...for those of you who aren't golf fans, married to a golf fan or who hasn't accidentally had the gold channel on this week then you may not know what I am talking about.
The Masters is one of the oldest US golf championships and unlike others is played on the same course each year. That course is here in Augusta. The course is admittedly beautiful. Azaleas, dogwoods, and all sorts of other flowering bushes surround almost all the holes. The grass is better kept than my husband's beard...heck than almost all men's beards. They limit the number of attendees, no cell phones are allowed, and you can get a sandwich, beer and a candybar for about 6 bucks...how many sporting events does that happen at!And as much as the locals complain about the traffic it is nice to have all the activities going on and the yards and parks all cleaned up for visitors. We have had visitors in town for the Masters again this year. ( My Dh's family are big into golf.) Unfortunately my legs aren't feeling up to the long walks and I hate falling behind so I chose to be the taxi driver and cook this year.
I did have one great moment this week though...I thought a few small quilts given to me by friends had been lost in the move to England. Well, I opened a recipe folder and would you believe there they were!
This mug was made for me by my non-blogging friend Rachel. Isn't it fun! That is acually sort of how I've felt this week...not enough caffine on earth to get me going....
Tomorrow the house empties out and my Dh goes to play poker with his buddies...maybe I can get some real quilting time in!
