Tonight, I eat with a deep sense of gratitude. The pain levels are low, albeit still present (I cannot remember a drug-free-pain-free day in my life anyway, so this is good!), but I am able to enjoy the crunchy textural success of my latest batch of kale chips! More than this, I am thankful for having food to enjoy, a safe and comfy roof over my head, and an Angel in My Bed.
After an afternoon cuddling on the couch with my Angel, and working on my exhibition sketches and notes, I am now tucking into a mutli-textural dinner of Thai-style stir fried thinly sliced beef fillet (marinated with fish sauce, oyster sauce, lemongrass, mint, basil, and sesame oil), on a bed of kale chips and rice. The Princess had her usual kibble – I aim for the day when I can feed her 100% top quality raw – with sweet potato and a spoonful of coconut oil, and she is now snoozing contentedly in bed.
Another clement day. I aim to squeeze in a bit more work after dinner, before crawling into bed with my warm vanilla hound. An idea brewing in my head needs to be executed before it rots away.
