10 Ways My Husband is Awesome

This week's Listicles topic is a lovely one: 10 ways my partner's awesome. I have to admit, I don't tell Oli how awesome he is nearly enough. Here's hoping he won't get embarrassed at this list...
  1. He can really sing. You'll probably never hear him though, because he's also quite shy & only does it at home, usually when he's alone.
  2. He can play the guitar. Like #1, this is something he does on his own so you won't see him on a stage any time soon.
  3. He wants to share all the work of parenting & at the moment--while I'm in school full-time & doing homework most nights--he's doing more of it.
  4. He's as committed as I am to do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint, from composting to cloth diapers to not owning a car. (see #5 for further effects of this)
  5. He's in great shape (probably related to the 150km he cycles to & from work most weeks).
  6. He can cook pretty well & makes most of our dinners.
  7. He's careful with money. Maybe too careful, as he takes forever to decide to actually buy things...
  8. He can make decent beer from scratch at home.
  9. He has lovely big gray-green eyes.
  10. He's got a big heart. From bugs to animals to people, he has compassion for them all. Except wasps.
Okay, that's my list. Now go write your own! Blog it, or FB it, or write it on paper--wait, do people still do that anymore? :)

    1. Ha, yes, he's actually gotten good at it over the years since that first watery lager attempt five years ago. :)

  2. My husband likes to cook, too. It is nice not to have to come up with and prepare all 365 meals of the year. :)

    1. I can't imagine making dinner seven nights a week the way my grandmother did. I'm just not that into cooking. When I lived on my own & had to feed myself I ate a lot of cereal & Campbell's soup.

    1. When it's faster than taking the bus, it really makes sense. :) Plus, you save time because you don't have to go to the gym.

    1. Thanks! I've kept him around for over a decade now, so yeah, he's pretty good. :)

  7. I'm exhausted at the thought of biking 150km each week... which goes to explain why he's in great shape and I'm not... although maybe I can talk the husband into it?? Great list!!

    1. 150km isn't something you'd want to just jump into right away, but it's doable for most able-bodied people. 15k is just 45 minutes to an hour of riding.

  8. Wow, this is awesome. Cool that he bikes to work and is so committed to reducing your carbon footprint!

  9. That is some serious bike riding! Good for him!

    1. He is pretty committed--I never rode more than 50km a week when I was cycle commuting. :)

  10. You are lucky - a man with nice eyes who cooks and makes beer. That's cool.

    I also like that he is an eco-minded fella. It's such a good feeling when your significant other respects your beliefs and actively participates!

    1. Yeah, I think it would drive me crazy if he wasn't into composting, recycling, going car-free & all the other stuff we do. That & attitude toward money are pretty fundamental, I'd say.

  11. Great list...isn't it wonderful when you find a partner who shares your values and beliefs, in addition to being a great person? Sounds like your husband really walks your talk.

    1. It's not like I *made* him do this stuff--it's more than we both agree that being green is important. He was an 'earth muffin' long before I met him... ;)

  12. What?? Cook? What's with all of these cooking husbands? Mine can open a can, does that count. But he would need me to tell him where the can opener is first.

  13. I love how complete your family is. You truly sleep with your soulmate.
