When it gets to be over 90 degrees around here, huge swarms of flies hatch out and invade everybody’s homes. It happens every summer. Feh.
The other day I happened to notice a small spider web in a corner of our kitchen window, with a small spider in it. I was about to get rid of it when I decided to do something different. Let it stay. See what happens.
The next day the spider caught two flies! I am glad my confidence in her was not misplaced. Not that we want our home overrun with spiders or anything. It’s just so unexpected, wonderful, and glorious when anything, including a spider, works the way it should. If only all the spiders in this neighborhood were so efficient!
And my eyes are still dilated, so don’t expect any really long posts for a while.
