Dramatic Conclusions

Sunday: Woke up at around 4 this morning, and finally got out of bed at around 5. Turned on ESPN and lucked into the final 2 sets of the Australian Open Men’s Tennis Final. Ultimately Djokovic beat Nadal in five sets to win his fifth Grand Slam title. It was the longest Grand Slam singles final in the history of professional tennis, lasting nearly 6 hours. It was over at exactly 8:00am our time, just in time to watch Fareed on CNN!

After watching our CNN morning news shows we had French toast with strawberries and blueberries for breakfast. After breakfast we went for a walk to Walgreen’s to pick up a movie. We stopped at Bashas on the way home to pick up sandwich meat for our lunch when we got home. We skyped with Tim and Alex and then Sue sat outside and read (finishing her book) while I sat inside with a book on my lap, “watching” golf. Actually we had tried to book tee times at Mountain Brook today, but they were hosting a tournament and so we couldn’t get on (we booked for tomorrow). I woke up from my nap just in time to watch Kyle Stanley make a triple-bogey 8 on the final hole to wipe out what once was a seven-shot lead and then lose a playoff to Brandt Snedeker! The second dramatic sports program today!

After supper (leftovers) we watched 60 minutes and then the movie “The Help”, our DVD rental. Another film to check off our “Oscars” list. We had a bit of chocolate and a cup of coffee as we watched the CBC “At Issue” program on the computer. Sue went to bed while I updated my journal and watched a movie on TV.
