Today has been an absolutely lovely day! Let me tell you all about it!
Justin got up when the dogs begged to go outside, so I could keep on sleeping for a while. Eventually, he came back to bed and the puppies were too excited to lay quietly, so I got up so he could rest longer.
While he was sleeping, I played with the dogs for a while, caught up on a little reading, and then decided to get my yoga in for the day. I think Saturdays are going to be yoga days – I have plenty of time usually and it’s a nice break from walking and a good opportunity to work on my strength and stretching. I’m still working to make sure I’m balancing evenly on both legs and getting the muscles on my left leg to stretch out properly.
While I was doing yoga, Nivis blitzed around the coffee table over and over again. He’d run around one side, jump on on the sofa, jump back down, run around the other end, run over my yoga bolster, and then back around again. And then he’d run over and attack Einstein for a minute. When I laid down on the floor do so some bridges and crunches, he decided to come over and lick the sweat off my face. He’s a helper.
After I finished that, we went for a walk outside for a little while and it was nice and warm and they were good boys and did not chase after the puppy like I know they wanted to. We’re working on it.
We went back inside so I could shower. And then check in on Justin, who was waking up, just reading in bed. And then get some breakfast.
We were going to have dinner with some friends, but they got some unexpected company come into town, but we filled up our afternoon by going to the park and doing some archery for a little while. I will have a bruise on my elbow again and I completely snapped an arrow in half. I have no idea how I managed it. And Justin lost another one. Two? At least one more arrow to the deceptively deep canal filled with murky water behind the targets. I think I’m improving, but I’m not sure, and either way, I’m having a blast.
We had to leave in time to get to the mall for haircuts. I think it’s been about a year since I got a cut and it was getting really crunchy at the ends. I definitely needed it. And Justin wasn’t full on shaggy yet, but he was getting there.
After haircuts, we went across the street for some BBQ and then went back to the mall for some ice cream before heading back home to relieve and feed the dogs.
It probably doesn’t sound like a whole lot, just some yoga and archery and haircuts. But I’ve been so filled with sunlight and joy by everything today. It’s the little, wonderful, sometimes ordinary things in life that make me happy. Sleepy morning kisses. Water rippling the sun-speckled water in the pond. Laughing with Justin over ice cream. Excited fluff-ball dogs when we walk in the door.
Life is good! And I’m happy!
