we have been invaded by spiders… though i am happy to report, only on the exterior of the house (so far).

these buggers are huge – see:
(and you can see my Sweet Lucy snuck into the shot!)

we are constantly ducking from huge webs produced by HUGE arachnids.

we have pretty much co-habitated with them all summer assuming that they were taking care of the bugs in the area– but ew. last week i grabbed a stick and took a bunch down – they are sticky suckers – and the next morning – guess what popped back up… son of a beezee!

i even walked into a web yesterday while fetching the lawn mower (though, not this one, b/c i am a wimp – apparently)… picture This Girl mowing and whilst trying to pull pieces of web out of her hair all evening. (plus, guess which song was securely placed in my constant soundtrack last night… yep, this one)

i am mostly worried that the dogs (or humans!) might eventually have a run-in with one of the eight-legged beasts, and i don’t want to know what that brings.

PS: Good Omen, or Bad Omen — seeing two small snakes cross your path while mowing… i am open to reader interpretation
