True Virtue Update

It's not much..I thought I had stitched the house in the wrong color and ripped it out only to find out it was the right color.So I restitched the house and have done a few leaves and apples on the tree..I have a valentine mail art exchange that is due Jan.26 so I started on that but haven't gotten very far on that either..It's just to busy of a time to get much stitching in..At least I have all the shopping finished and I have everything for our Christmas meal so I think I can stay home today and straighten up the house .Tomorrow I will bake the pies..I hope you all have a wonderful christmas day and have lots of family around you to make memories..

Peanut Butter Pie ( 9' pie )

4 0z. cream cheese ( room temperature )
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 bowl cool whip ( 8 oz. )
1 9 inch prepared graham cracker crust

Mix cream cheese with powdered sugar.
Add peanut butter.
Then add Cool Whip, fold and mix carefully, pour into prepared graham cracker crust.
Add other half of Cool Whip to top..Chill

When I make this I always buy two graham cracker crusts and make two pies..


This is one of my favorite pies..I have had this recipe for a little over 20 years..I found it in the newspaper when my husband and I were living in Baltimore..If you make it let me know what you think..

Little Darlin


Here's little darlin..Her name was Angel when I got her but I had to change her name because she is not an Angel but a little darlin..I have probably had her for 2 years..My girlfriend got this bird from her neighbor to breed with her parakeet..It didn't work out because little darlin was mean to her bird blue boy so she asked me if I wanted her..I thought sure although I had never owned a bird before..I feel so sad for little darlin as she has no life being in this cage day in and day out..I can't take her out and fool with her because Merriweather is so jealous..I do let her out of her cage every so often so she can fly around the house and stretch her wings..I take the top off her cage and she will fly to her cage when she is ready to go home..I will never own another bird..I think it is cruel for these little things to spend their lives in a cage..I wish so much that I could set her free but that can't be as she would never survive..I take her outside when the weather is nice and that is where she is in this picture..I wish that I could find her a loving home where she could be handled..I have had plenty of people that wanted her but there is no way that I will give her to someone just to get rid of her..
