Emerging of the Bombshell Within

An eclectic view of a girl's life

Sending a package with love April 23, 2010

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'm trying to make up for my absence with lots of sprinkles. Think it will work?

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.

The ones I messed with

I put some sky blue food coloring gel on the inside of a plastic baggie, poured in the sprinkles and shook them all around.

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.

    Like I have told you, I hope he gets well soon. You know I love you and I am here for you!

    But I cant shake the feeling of jealousy that he gets a care package and I dont, you know me all self-centered :”)
