Now, where did I put my tuffet? [Nov. 21st, 2009|11:20 am]

We have a new porch spider. Only, this one doesn't actually build her web across the porch, which is nice. We still have to be careful approaching the front door, but at least there is a way to get in and out of the house after dark.

I don't know what happened to our old porch spider. She disappeared one night, and although I like to assume she simply moved on, I suspect she came to a bad spidery end.

Our old spider was an orb spider. She was very pretty. Our new spider is some kind I've never seen before. She's still pretty, but in a creepier way. Her body is about the size of a dime, and she's hairy.

I'm always impressed by the patience of our porch spider. Every night she spins an enormous web, and every morning she takes it down again. In between the spinning and taking down is a lot of sitting and waiting. There is a lesson there, I think. Of course, there's always the possibility that she's complaining and whining the whole time, and I just don't know it since I don't speak spider.

Anyway, here she is:

It's hard to live in Texas and be afraid of bugs.

I like the little speckeled gray ones that live on trees (even though one bit me once) and the little jumpy ones.
