Saturday: Tactical Man & Yoga Wife

Molle wasn't too snuggly this morning. I dozed off with her nestled in my arm now and then, but she'd wake me up with her slobbery kisses.

we’ve been so lazy, which isn’t the usual for us. despite it being quiet around here, i’ve made the most of my time creatively and thoughtfully, which actually isn’t always the usual for me.

ian had a long night running calls and came home to frenzied barking and bedhead wife. welcome home, would you like to help me out?

no such luck. we ate our breakfast and attempted halting conversation above the howls of a blonde tasmanian devil. ian sighed and wished me goodnight while the sun shone brightly on our table spread.

i did not let that get me down. THAT is especially noteworthy  considering my nonstop week at the office from 9am-8pm nearly every day. could have crashed and burned today, but i chose to stay positive and purposeful.

i worked on a project i’d been meaning to pick up this season… i’m not going to reveal it just yet, so take a sneak peek for now…

ian is in the process of completing more military training; he had been away for a while, has been home for the week, and leaves again this coming week for another training stint. story of my life as a military wife. i’m becoming more accustomed to this independent confidence. since he hasn’t been feeling too great today, we’ve lounged on the couch, talked hobbies, eaten cookies, and watched kid movies.

Every time I perfect the Nestle's recipe. I found that the trick is to add a little more butter and a lot less sugar!

one of ian’s hobbies is being ‘tactical man.’ his military career impassions him; his adrenaline gets pumping when he rushes into a fire, but the high goes to a whole new level when he gets tactical. here’s a video he shared with me that widens the lens for the civilian to appreciate the risks, the precision of our American military forces. 

in contrast, yoga is one of my hobbies. it doesn’t impassion me, it’s just a steady routine. i like doing things that are fairly simple, sweet, and sure…. the total opposite of Mr. Adrenaline. here’s a video of one of my favorite daily yoga routines. the instructor is really excellent.

in closing of this lackadaisical saturday review, this was the best moment captured today. it’s a lot of work, day in and day out, to get an old dog to like a puppy. but i think our work is paying off…

Sometimes Molle is too affectionate for Luke's mellow manners; when she woke up from her nap she went right for his cushion and just laid there by his side. Luke didn't mind a bit, and when I said, "Hey guys, whatchya doin?," they looked like this.
