Doug has been bring wood to the porch so maybe that is why I am seeing a lot more of them on the deck. I was out there with him yesterday and saw this big spider crawling on the ceiling of the deck. Big, orange-colored, ugly thing with a puffy, puckered looking back.
I remember a nightmare I had when I was a little girl. I saw a spider in the corner of the room and it began to crawl towards me and as it did it kept getting bigger and bigger until it just loomed over me. I think I had a fever so that must have been a sick dream!
I know this spider problem will just keep getting worse until they finally freeze--- because they can find all the spots in this log house that is leaking warm air out. They just zero in on the warmth then wiggle on in like it's their own welcome to my home porch!
TOnight, I was getting some work done and printing out flyers when my son Klint stopped by. I went downstairs to show him the jewelry I had created for a bridal fair that Karla will be participating in. After visiting a bit, he left and I took my little dog out to go potty.
I didn't go very far because it's DARK outside! I am still used to it being daylight when I go outside at night and I hate it gets dark earlier in the fall. I am pretty positive that I can feel all sorts of creepy crawlies out there hanging from the ceilings and from the trees! So I says, "Go potty here! Chewy!" After he finally quits peeing, I jerked his leash towards me and we hurried back in.
I am always checking the floors as I walk around my house and that is when I noticed that right where I was standing at the table talking to my son there is a big ol' smooshed spider on the floor!
EWWWWWWWWWWW! I groaned, as I looked down at my bare feet!
I'm going to bed!!!!!
