So much joy returned to my home the moment my son walked through the door. I couldn’t have asked for a better present this holiday season. He hasn’t just been great company; he’s been my personal chef. My son has cooked every day this week and all of his meals are healthy and centre on plant-based foods. That’ll probably continue up until Christmas Day, when I temporarily reclaim my kitchen to create a traditional spread with all the fixins.
There is one perplexing thing that’s occurred this visit and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. For more than half his life my son has challenged me in Scrabble and the other day he defeated me for his first win EVER! I trust I’ll continue to hear about this victory long after he leaves. I don’t think my son would use such guile against me but maybe….just maybe….his good cooking was all a ploy to get me to let my guard down. Hmm!
