It was unusually warm yesterday, over 70 degrees by mid-morning. Kelly and I walked up to Pentagon City where we had brunch at Harry’s Tap Room. We then wandered around the mall for a little while, popping in and out of various shops, just browsing, not buying. We walked back home and about halfway, the skies opened up and it started to pour. The last time this happened, we were on bikes. This time, since we were on foot, we dashed up into a grove of evergreen-like trees and, believe it or not, they were enough shelter to prevent us from getting any more wet than we already were. We waited out the rain shower (about 5 minutes) and then continued our walk home.
I headed straight for the mail box and still no NEW SCIENTIST, much to my dismay. I continued reading the online version throughout the lazy afternoon. Later, Kelly napped and I watched Forrest Gump.
I spoke to Dan this evening. Later in the evening, I played more Tiger Woods 2009 and on the 5th hole at Wolf Trap (a par 5), I had my first ever double-eagle (for which I got a $3,500 bonus!). From what I understand, a double-eagle is the hardest shot to get in golf, and it was pretty exciting to see.
Slept in until about 9 AM and then we watched Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. Much colder today, and very windy. Sunday Morning was good. They did a profile of Steve Miller, which put me in the mood to listen to some of his music today. They also did a piece on the Oxford Project, which was really interesting.
I was looking for Apple, Ale and Cheddar soup recipes online. I couldn’t find any for all three, but I found partial recipes. I may try concocting my own Apple, Ale, and Cheddar soup this evening based on what I found online.
Kelly worked on the last batch of thank you notes last night and this morning. We should get those in the mail on Monday.
