As I mentioned yesterday, I’m going through a difficult time personally. I don’t want to fill this place up with all sorts of private things but I will say that I am feeling wretched and useless being so far away. However, being that I like to bake, I consider sweets to solve any problem. So hopefully when my Dearest Someone gets this box full of sugar cookies (it was spur of the moment and I truly had nothing to bake with), he will be well enough to enjoy them.
I may have gone overboard with the sprinkles.
But I was out of powdered sugar and would not have had enough time to let them dry if I iced them. So sprinkles would have to do… even if they were halloween (hey they worked b/c his favorite color is orange!), Easter (I only used the colored sugars) and Christmas (I picked out the little trees and even dyed some) themed, I made them work.
These were originally white, red and green. Too Christmasy, if you ask me.
I think they came out very pretty and I wanted something a little different so that M could have a color set all for herself too.
Included in the box was a note to M for keeping me updated and expressing all my gratitude in this difficult time, as well as a card detailing everyone who has sent their love, best wishes and prayers for his speedy recovery.
I’m trying to stay hopeful and positive.
And cookies are always positive things, I think.
