Sunday Ham Dinner and Leftovers

Are you cooking a ham today? It is a tradition in many households, and one that usually leaves a lot of leftovers. While having nice slices for sandwiches for a few days is nice, I usually want something else before we can finish it off. See my post on Ham Dinner and Ham Casserole to …

Sunday Chat with Wildlife

It has been a full week of wildlife visitors, with lots of animals and birds stopping by. I give treats to some, and some I have to hold my breath not to scare away. There is a small herd of five female deer that live in the forest on our property and the adjoining properties. …
