These flowers are also known as black eyed susans and they are growing rampant behind our house this year.
How she knew, I have no idea, but she ran across the house like her tail was on fire and perched on the back of the sofa. She sat, ever watchful.
This is what held her attention captive. A five lined skink.
This skink had more problems that being stalked by a cat. It appeared to have had a run in with a big spider web.
Last night Glen and I went to a concert at Starlight Theater. We saw three bands, The Tower of Power, The Steve Miller Band and Journey. I had never heard of The Tower of Power, they were good. The rest of the concert was awesome. I love Steve Miller and Glen loves Journey.
Pre-concert obligatory selfie.

Journey…..It was difficult to get a good picture of Journey because of all their lights.
Since Glen and I decided to put in a garden this year, I made the leap and bought a pressure canner.
Last Monday evening my mom called me and said that my step-dad brought home a big box of green beans and wanted to know if I would can them for her. Of course I said I would. Tuesday evening came around and I found myself in my kitchen first looking at this very intimidating pan and then at the instructions on how to use it since I had never canned anything before.
As you can see, everything went as it should…..and I didn’t blow up my kitchen :-)
