Weather ~ Deer ~ Picture of the Day ~ Pacific Ocean ~ Creamy Ham Casserole ~ National Administrative Professionals Day


Good 33º clear sunny morning. 
Yesterday predictions were for a "slight chance of showers"... we started cloudy.....

Then the clouds left and we topped at 75º. 

The deer were back, this time 2 more....

Picture of the Day 😄   Mom, is that you? 

Interesting about the Pacific Ocean...

The Pacific Ocean is the largest and deepest of Earth's oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Southern Ocean (or, depending on definition, to Antarctica) in the south and is bounded by the continents of Asia and Australia in the west and the Americas in the east.

Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, located in the western north Pacific, is the deepest point in the world, reaching a depth of 35,853 feet. The Pacific also contains the deepest point in the Southern Hemisphere, the Horizon Deep in the Tonga Trench, at 35,509 feet. The third deepest point on Earth, the Sirena Deep, is also located in the Mariana Trench.

To read more about the Mariana Trench, go here:


The Pacific Ocean has most of the islands in the world. There are about 25,000 islands in the Pacific Ocean.

The volume of the Pacific Ocean, representing about 50.1 percent of the world's oceanic water, has been estimated at some 171 million cubic miles.

The number of small plastic fragments floating in the northeast Pacific Ocean increased a hundredfold between 1972 and 2012. The ever-growing Great Pacific garbage patch between California and Japan is three times the size of France. An estimated 80,000 metric tons of plastic inhabit the patch, totaling 1.8 trillion pieces.

This Creamy Ham Casserole is an easy and simple ham casserole recipe that uses up your leftover ham and goes together in a flash. This is comfort food at its best, and it couldn't be easier to throw together, even on a busy weeknight! So the next time you're looking for a simple casserole recipe, just grab this one and get ready for a delicious ham casserole that'll please the whole gang.


  • 8 ounces medium egg noodles, uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced celery
  • 2 cups chopped cooked ham
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pimiento, drained on paper towel


  1. Preheat oven to 375º.  Coat a 1-1/2-quart baking dish with cooking spray. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot. Add onion and celery and cook 6 to 8 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in ham and heat 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soup, sour cream, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, the pimiento, and noodles. Spoon into baking dish. 
  3. Cover and bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until heated through. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese, and bake, uncovered, an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. 

****Here's a great way to use leftover ham. Or, if you don't have any leftovers, take advantage of cubed cooked ham that's available in the meat counter of your supermarket. When you need just a few cups of ham, such as in this deliciously creamy recipe, it gives you an inexpensive head start for preparing a variety of meals.

National Administrative Professionals’ Day, also known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day, recognizes the professionals who keep an office running smoothly every day. Celebrate these professionals on the Wednesday of the last full week in April of each year. The day recognizes the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals. Central to any business, these professionals keep an office organized and efficient. 

The day in the life of an administrative professional is varied from moment to moment. While organization is key to their success, their flexibility and ability to handle the unexpected make them valuable to any business. Some of their responsibilities include managing appointments, drafting letters and memos, booking business trips, coordinating appointments and planning meetings. 

Administrative professionals compile data and research information, too. Their organizational skills mean they pinpoint information quickly and keep the executive on schedule, whether they are in transit or with a client. They are central to an office or business running efficiently. 


Celebrate by giving gifts to your assistant, such as flowers, gift certificates, gift baskets, candy or lunch. Honor your assistant by sharing your gratitude on social media.


The International Association of Administrative Professionals promotes National Administrative Professionals Day. The observance first launched in 1952 when U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Charles Sawyer proclaimed June as National Secretaries Week. In that same year, June 4th was designated National Secretaries Day. The name changed to Administrative Professionals in 2000 when the day was also added and the events moved to April.
