My neighbor's cat, Simba, who I wrote about in another recent post, has been sneaking into my house and peeing on things. Ugh. Yesterday I heard growling outside my front door. I looked out and saw Simba sprawled out on the front stoop, as if he belonged there, and my cat, Rexie, wanting to come inside, but not wanting to get too close to Crazy Simba. I grabbed my camera and got this little video of Simba's quick departure. The laugh track at the end was synchronistically provided by a party that was going on at the posh resort across the street from where I live.

A couple of weeks ago, as I was about to cook up some beets that had already had their tops cut off, I noticed that they had begun growing new leaves. I enjoy eating beet greens very much, they taste like a mix of beets, spinach, and swiss chard. I ate some yesterday with brown rice, chicken, and chives, in a peanut sauce. Yummy!
Anyway, back to those beets that were growing new tops... I decided to cut the tops off and put them in water, to see if they would keep growing. Well they have, and a few days ago I spotted a bright yellow bee wandering around on them, and I got these photos:
