Web Tales

Here's a picture of my silly boys helping me out with some yard chores. They were both very excited to have found gardening gloves to wear!

Yesterday Sam and I woke up before the boys. (This is a pretty unusual occasion.) Anyway, we were talking, and Sam leaned over and poked me, saying, "Lou, look out the window over there!" And what do I see, but a HUGE spider in an even bigger web stretched out right outside my bedroom window. We have a pretty big window in there, and the web easily took up half of the window.

Don't tell Sam, but I really thought it was pretty cool! It's kind of like looking at something at the zoo. You know it can't hurt you, so you're free to look. Those who know me know that I'm not exactly a spider fan, but I'll admit this....East Texas really has some pretty cool spiders!

P.S. My mom will read this at some point, and since I inherited my "spider-phobia" from her, I won't be posting the picture I took of the spider! :)

That's a very funny observation on the spider... but I still would have found a way to kill it... I jsut assume that anything with more that 4 legs in Texas is poisonous... scorpions, spiders, millipedes... yikes! I like to look, but then I want to make sure they aren't going to find a way into my house!

It was great to meet you this weekend!!
