Cora made Beef Stroganoff last night. It was delicious. Here she is in the kitchen. I was using a telephoto, so I was out of her reach. She is particularly unhappy about me being in the kitchen when she’s cooking, so I avoid it. It’s better for my health.
I had an interview today. I think I did well, but you never know for sure until they call.
I have done a very good job of keeping our back yard looking good this year. I have not kept all the weeds down. I HAVE kept at least one for show. I may not have the biggest tomato, or the biggest squash, but look at this Kochia! It’s got to be almost 9 feet tall! After a little looking on-line I discovered that it is described as coming to the US as an “ornamental” from China in the early 1900’s. According to the site I found, Kochia came to Washington State in about 1980. Each plant has the possibility of producing about 14,000 seeds with a 76% viability!! The roots can go 16 feet down! If I had known this was such a bad weed…well, I would still have let this one grow…but maybe I would have been a little more generous with the weed killer elsewhere. For the record, the internet says it grows UP TO seven feet tall, but that fence is six foot.
I should find out tomorrow afternoon whether I got the job. I’ll not hold my breath. Still, I feel good about it.
This is for Cora. This is a visitor/homeowner in our garden…prickly, huh?
Work again tomorrow…more furniture moving. On the bright side, I do get to operate heavy machinery.
