Cooking is at once child's play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.

Says Craig Claiborne. I assume he's something to do with cooking.

Yesterday was a day of cooking, for some dear friends, arriving today.

Cooking can be a chore. It can be exhausting.

But not when it's an act of love, and I'm present to every moment, instead of thinking of the next thing that has to be done while I'm racing (or slogging) through every task. 

Yesterday was joyful.

Today will be lovely. The sun's shining.

Everything's prepared.

We have Malteser Cake.

I'll be able to spend time with my guests.

Happy days.
