He said it took him a few minutes to figure out how to wake me up. He stood there, just waiting for me to scream. “Natasha, wake up. There’s a mouse on your chest.”
Only, I didn’t scream. I sort of opened one eye, crawled out of bed and walked over to him by the door. I patted him on the shoulder, “I have to pee anyway, take care of that will you?”
That’s the second time I’ve woken up in a month to something creepy, crawly in this house. A few weeks ago I did scream because there was something that scurried up my leg in the middle of the night. Since then we took some measures to make sure that didn’t happen again, it’s actually a very rude awakening. This time we’re pretty sure it was Seth (contactless) mistaken my fuzzy brown blanket (because YES I still sleep with a blanky) for a mouse. Either way he said that was not the reaction he was expecting. He said he was glad it wasn’t really a mouse because neither of us would have known how to get rid of said mouse, or would have been able to go back to sleep if it really was ;)
I’ve been pretty amazed at this state. I have lots of things I’ve encountered that I wasn’t expecting, another blog in the future I’m sure. But I took these photos over the course of about 2 weeks for my little buddy Austin. He loves spiders and will hopefully really enjoy these ;)
I was so amazed by such an intrinsic web. Think about it, the rain could come and instantly this work of art is gone forever. Such hard work and effort to be washed away by a storm. I think I could take a lesson in determination from a spider.
This spider was outside the back window about a week later.
Webs make for beautiful bokeh. I’m a photo-nerd. I know. You don’t have to tell me. I took about 30 just like this one ;)
I had to take one to give you a little bit of perspective. This spider was HUGE. If you look around the outter rings you can see his web covers most of the outside of the glass! I was able to get RIGHT up next to him and be super safe. :D
This morning I looked and the guy was still there! And if possible, he looked even bigger! His web was much smaller since we’ve had a bit of rain and wind since the last photos. But I just happened to catch him right as he caught lunch.
Hope you enjoyed this Austin, I would have loved for you to have seen him in person <3
