Some regular visits from the locals and a favorite recipe...

I find life here in the holler a constant blessing.  I know God put us here because He knows where we need to be and He chose to bless us with what delights us.  For instance, the deer that come by our yard each day to graze.  You would think that after seeing them every day for so long it would become common place.  It never gets old.  I am just like the dogs, who bark at them, I get excited everytime I see them.


Today, I slipped out the back door and walked into the front yard to take these pictures.  We have many pictures just like these, but hey, it's the thrill of being out there with them.  My hands still get a little shakey as I try to get the best and closest picture without the deer running off.  So, I'm sorry these pictures aren't better.  I did have my long range zoom lens in but it was almost dark and I was in a hurry and freezing!



What fascinated me anew yesterday was how God made them perfectly camoflaged for their environment.  


Earlier this year we had Redneck Tacos.  A local bar-b-q restaurant named this dish and we started making them at home because I love them.  It's easy.  It's a cornbread pancake (johnny cake or hoe cake) on the bottom, pulled pork w/ our homemade sauce next, followed by cole slaw.  Oh, it's so good.  It's so good, I forgot to take a picture until I was half way through eating mine!


Well, that's all.  Blessings from the holler...

Deer are only good for pictures and in the pan as a roast. You can not have flowers or a garden with them around. I'm infested with them where I live. You can tell they don't excite me as much as some folks.

I have lots and lots of deer where I live but they are NOT good neighbors. They eat my flowers and garden produce. However they do make good pictures.
