Fun Day

I just know today is going to be a fun day, in a challenging sort of way. This is what I saw in the bathtub as I was taking my morning constitutional:


I'm sure I've just lost one of my three faithful readers (Coriander) but here's the perspective of it's size:



I don't love spiders but I do have a morbid fascination if I see one. So I stepped in the tub thinking it would be a neat shot taken from the other end of the tub looking down toward the drain, raised the camera but that darn spider wasn't in the viewfinder. Camera down, no spider in the tub either. EEEKK! I jumped out, figuring it ran back down the drain from whence it came. I jumped up and down, giving my pajama legs a bit of a shake, you know - just in case....No spider. Ok, breath again. Something tapped me on the shoulder and said, "Shake a little harder". I don't ignore that voice unless it's telling me to do something dangerous so I did, jumped and shook a little harder and out he flew. And so did I, into the next room. Did I mention I am deathly allergic to spider bites? Yes, it's going to be a fun day, in a challenging sort of way.

Oh this gave me the heebie-jeebies!!! I don't love spiders either (used to be really afraid of them) but I'm telling you girl, I would NOT get into the tub with one...especially if I had an allergy!! Has your heart rate returned to normal yet?!?

Ewwww ! I had shivers up and down my spine and that heebie-jeebie feeling when you said he jumped ! I really do believe bugs attack ! My husband says they are just running for cover but I know they are attacking in revenge for the one's I have squished !!! ;-)

Be careful,you intrepid photographer !

Ewwww!!! I'm decidedly in the "who the hell gets in the tub with a spider?" camp. I'm checking my own pant legs right now for spiders. Ewww, just Ewww.

Whoa... the best part of that story was that voice that told you to shake a little harder - what a blessing!
