Pumpkin Pie, Bird Count and Creative Pursuits, oh my!

I haven't been posting much because I feel like time is standing still these days. Waiting for someone to love our home enough to buy it. In the mean time I was craving homemade pumpkin pie. So even though we are trying to keep the kitchen spotless for visitors at any moment I had to whip one up last night. 
Maple Pumpkin Pie
One pie crust, set oven to 350. 
Mix up 2 eggs, 1/3 c. cream, 1/2 c. maple syrup, 15oz pumpkin canned or  fresh, 1 T. pumpkin pie spice and pour in shell. Bake 60 minutes. 

LET COOL before you put your whipped cream on top...... mine melted because I just couldn't wait, YUM! I am glad my grandma taught me to make pies... I know it is a comfort thing but I am ready to burst at the creative seams I tell ya. This keeping my house perfect is killing me. I am a creative person and I am just antsy to get working on a project. This weekend I think I may need to break out the sewing machine for a little creative pursuits. I have three quilts that I am dying to work on. So I do believe after we return from enjoying God's creation at the Great Backyard Bird count at Nolde Forest I will begin sewing up something pretty. That should carry me through till next week. 
Check out the link for counting birds this weekend and go make something to share with your loved ones. Share with us too... send me a picture of something you made or a photo of God's beautiful creation or a post that I can share with others.
