~Notes From Natalie~
On a cold December afternoon, a young white (part siamese)
female cat with grey paws, tail, ears and nose wandered up to
my house. Her eyes were a pale blue; her meow the sweetest.
Instantly, I fell in love with this kitten, and named her Sedona.
At my local veterenarian, she recieved a distemper shot,
and was spayed. Ginger, however, is much less than pleased
with the new addition to my household. She growls, hisses
and spits at her new sister, unmercifully. How can I help
Ginger to adjust to Sedona? If anyone had an idea, I would
really appreciate it; my email address is KatLvr363@aol.com.
Thank you very much- and happy Valentines Day!
love ya,
Natalie

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
Ingredients:
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk, reserve white
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour



Directions:

1. In a large bowl combine the sugar, butter or
margarine, cream cheese, salt, almond extract,
vanilla and egg yolk. Blend well. Stir in the
flour and mix until well blended. Chill the
dough overnight. This is very important the
dough is too sticky to roll out unless well chilled.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
3. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough
1/3 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness, refrigerating
remaining dough until ready for it. Cut into
desired shapes with lightly floured cookie cutters.
Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Leave cookies plain for frosting or brush with
slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with
candy sprinkles or colored sugar.
4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for
7 to 10 minutes or until light and golden
brown. Cool cookies completely before frosting.

PUNNY VALENTINES: Why are valentines filled with awful puns?
I don't know, but I love it. Cut out letters and pictures of animals from
magazines and arrange them into punny cards, using a bit of glue to
hold them onto the paper. Some gems include a cat remarking, "I
have felines for you"; a horse noting, "Bubba, you're my mane man";
or a dog sending this sweet nothing to Mama: "I'll hound you till you're
mine."

BUTTON SLIPS: Dress up your shirt buttons by cutting romantic
shapes out of a piece of felt (they should be about 1 to 2 inches
tall and wide). We chose hearts, but you could try flowers, stars
or whatever you like. Cut slits that are the size of your buttonhole
in the center of the shapes, then slip them in place.
