There are too many reasons to count why I am lucky to live near family. Tonight, reason number 1,000 was last-minute babysitting courtesy of my sweet cousin Mary who is in town for the summer before she heads off to Italy. Returning the favor, I suppose, of the many nights and days I spent as her favorite babysitter, Mary again came to my rescue and stopped by tonight for an hour to keep an eye on La Luz while I took Loki for a quick run. But not only did Mary watch La Luz, when she arrived her hands were filled with dinner - for me - and it was delicious. It was a recipe from the Cooking Club cookbook and it included pancetta and cheese and white wine. With ingredients like that it goes without saying that I enjoyed every bite, though I imagine I cancelled out any of the calorie burning from the run.
Here's what La Luz was up to tonight, more of the driving the car stuff. Tonight the picture is in black and white so that it is not mistaken for a smilar picture taken on Monday night.
