a lovely image by Abby Blaine - spiderwebs are quite fascinating
We haven't quite decided if the spider problem here is endemic to the area, or if perhaps just our apartment building. We kill spiders in our home daily. DAILY. How freaking creepy is that?
We find them swooping down at us on their silk threads from the ceiling, scurrying across our feet while we watch TV or study at the kitchen table, scampering across the floor, hiding in corners, weaving their webs in every crevice they can find...we even found a couple in our bed...our BED!? And friends, these aren't teeny tiny microscopic spiders...these are large, quarter size to half dollar size creatures...with hair...and spindly legs...you know... the stuff nightmares are made of.
We can't open our windows...despite the deliciously refreshing breezes outside...big honkers with 8 legs are on the other side...begging to be let in. Oh sure, they will find their way in some way or another, it's inevitable...but we'd hate to make their journey easier.
I hate them.
