Saturday Routine

Bacon and eggs for breakfast. Skype with Max. We read for much of the day — sitting outside in the lounger or inside on the couch. We had talked about going to the Mesa Market this weekend, but when the time arrived we couldn’t think of anything that we really wanted to shop for so we stayed home instead. I finished my book (Somewhere Inside: One Sister’s Captivity in North Korea and the Other’s Fight to Bring Her Home by Laura and Lisa Ling). Sue is almost finished hers (The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion).

Rudy putting on Hole #2Just before 3:00 we packed up and went to the Mountain Brook golf course. I put our bags back on our pull carts and off we were — just like old times. Walking nine holes on ‘our’ course just before sunset. We both had mostly good shots but scored poorly. But the evening was lovely and although we often had to wait for the foursome ahead of us, we finished ‘early’. So we went back to the first hole and played 1, 2 and 9 again. And got to watch the sun setting against Superstition Mountain.

After golf we went to the ‘Great Wall’ Chinese restaurant at our corner and ordered takeout. While that was getting made we went across the road to Walgreens to pick up some things. Then home for supper. I’d picked up our first DVD from the Redbox in Walgreens. We watched “Begin Again” — sappy ‘tiet fedrief’. When it was over we switched to the PBS special on Peter, Paul, and Mary, which was quite a bit better than the movie.
