Kelly’s box of chocolate

September 26, 2014

I have been exceedingly blessed in the last few years by lovely readers who have become supportive friends, some of whom I haven’t even met in person yet. I’ve talked about Gertie and her cupcake support committee herehere, and here (one for each Dowser book). I also still have Karen’s trinket hanging on my monitor where I get to see it every morning.

And then there is lovely Kelly. She sent this:

<3 I’ve made a screensaver out of the above image <3

I knew a treat was coming, because Kelly and I had been trying to meet for a hot chocolate last month – yes, we know each other in real life, however our paths do not naturally cross 🙁 But life was insanely busy with moving and family. Kelly finally convinced me that she should just mail the package to me as a house warming gift.

This is what was so brilliantly packaged inside – yes, brand new chocolate!!!

Five freaking kilograms of Ocoa by Cacao Barry to be exact!! That’s 11.02 pounds for my American friends. I, of course, immediately opened, poured, and tasted 🙂

This huge box of “support” will get me through writing a couple of more Dowser books, at the very least. I’m thinking of making brownies, cupcakes, and perhaps some Chewy Gooey Chocolate Cookies with it.

In fact, I’m designing up some new cupcakes for Dowser 4 and I’m seriously thinking of using this chocolate to make them, then sending tasters to Kelly for her approval. That won’t even dent this box of goodness – yes, I’m greedy and selfishly-bent when it comes to good chocolate.

Thank you Kelly, for all your support and the chocolate. It is – you are – very appreciated and cherished!

        SFG is going to drop his edit of the The Oracle in my inbox any minute now. Once I figure out how much more time I need with it, I’ll check in with you about your schedule for the final proof 🙂 Mid-Oct would be my guess, unless his notes are extensive (which is always a possibility). Then Dowser 4 in late-November, early-December (hopefully). YAY!!

    Oh! how sweet that you have the bookmark hanging to see everyday! It was like a treasure hunt as I looked for just the
    right charms and I had lot of fun putting it together for you. I hope it brings you lots of creative thoughts! I’m kicking myself and shamed that my summer was so busy that I haven’t completely finished Dowser 3 yet! So I have decided to start reading the whole series with you! Keep up the excellent work! We all love you! 💕
