As I Cee It

when you don’t have a valentine.

Posted on: February 16, 2013

I meant to write this yesterday, or even Thursday, but… Well, I didn’t.

Being single with no prospects for as long as I have been (stunning news, I know) means I don’t pay much attention to Valentine’s Day. I’m not bitter or angry about it, it’s just a non-factor in my life. And when you don’t have a Valentine, you don’t expect anything, which is why I was quite surprised to come home to this:

My oldest nephew left this for my mother and I causing us both to walk to the table in a daze with our mouths hanging open. As much as I complain about that kid, he really comes through sometimes. (The card was signed by all my nephews, but I know the oldest one selected the cards and gifts.)

In return, I put sugar, sweat, and tears to work on Valentine’s Day cupcakes.

(This is my third attempt at the Simple Vanilla Cupcakes and [slightly modified] cream cheese frosting from Joy the Baker’s cookbook.)

And do you know after all my work on these cupcake representations of my love for my sister’s children only one of them deigned to eat them?

Oh. I’m back to complaining about them already. That was quick.
