I would enjoy cooking if it got done real quick
if the prep work was done for me.
That’s the trick!
Cook what I want and take no requests
for fancy dishes and snacks.
Simple is what I do best.
I enjoy cooking now, because we both work from home
and chores are shared.
I’m no longer struggling with them alone.
Dinner early at nine – it’s a lovely change
from those years of long commuting and reaching home so late.
I enjoy cooking now because of this new pace.
It’s been a time to reset and have a life with some space.
It’s important I think, to wake up everyday and be thankful for the small mercies. Especially at times like this, when the news brings grief, and when the larger mercies are few and far between.
May India get through this pandemic and be ok.
