Only in Montana!!!

For the past couple of days there have been sitings of a mountain lion in town!  Right in our neighborhood.  I was out walking yesterday morning and didn't even know he was around the area.  The FWP brought in dogs to hunt him down yesterday afternoon, but he managed to be an elusive cat!  But this morning they found him down by the river and shot him.  Kind of scary!

And we have wild fires burning all over the state with it being so dry and last night we had thunder and lightening.  Not helping the issue it was up to 100F yesterday and the winds are blowing like crazy!  But it is much cooler, only in the lower 70's. 

It was so smokey and hazy when I headed out to the farmer's market to get some more tomatoes. The lady selling them even gave me some seconds for free, as she knew I was canning them.   My vines have been stripped by the neighborhood raccoons!  First time that has ever happened since we have lived here.  Also got some garlic, and scones and bread.

I came home and started peeling tomatoes.  And everything was all done and in the jars by noon.  So, we will have yummy tomatoes during the winter.

 A layout I completed today.

Most of the paper are from different collections from Authentique

Letter stickers from Fancy Pants and Authentique

Wow, it sounds more than a wee bit dangerous in your neck of the woods. But it looks like you managed to triumph with indoor pursuits. Those canned tomatoes look fab, and I love your design on that layout. I need to start using more of those cards on my pages too.
