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! :)
