I came home from work today, entered the door I walked out of nine hours before. My beloved Luka crouched low wanting to leap, but restraining. What a good dog. Really, she is. Others say this about their dogs, but Luka is different. She’s a good dog, plain and simple.
After I took my good dog to the park, I made a lovely pot of red curry with vegetables. There’s something particularly satisfying about having all the ingredients you need for a really good dish surprisingly on hand. I followed a recipe from one of my new favorite cookbooks, Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health, and made a batch of brown rice.
Eating it made me warm and happy. It’s important to take care of oneself. Sometimes I forget to nurture myself as well as I nurture those around me. Now, with a full belly, and a lovely cup of Earl Grey I feel content.
