Recently my Mom posted this on my Facebook page. What a brilliant idea. I wish I had thought of it!


I particularly like the realistic hand drawing!

Spiders are not my favourite creature on the earth, and I have had more traumatic experiences than I care to remember…in the house, the office, the car, even in my purse! But I do try to respect their space when I’m outside. After all, the great outdoors is their living room, not mine.

The other day, as I settled into my chair on the back porch with a fresh cup of tea, I noticed something sparkling in an empty space between the apple tree and the clothesline. A space that shouldn’t occupy anything that sparkles. So, of course, I investigated.

This little guy is a distant cousin to the spider who has taken up residence between our porch and the neighbour’s porch. We eye each other I’m sitting in my chair, but as long as he leaves me alone, I’ll leave him alone.

The artist is a receptacle of emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web. – Pablo Picasso

Happy Weekend!

This very late post is in response to Cee Nuener’s Black & White Challenge: New Photos! Hubby and Little Guy were away this week, so I’ve been spending my hours painting trim and stair risers. I may never stand straight again!  🙂
