I mentioned our unique relationship with our awesome in-house spider a few posts back. Even though our northerly state has already had a frost, she's still alive and well in our kitchen, hanging out and randomly changing her colors, apparently. SUPER FESTIVE.
Now that all the flies are gone for the year (we all rejoice!) we've been plucking bugs from our firewood and feeding her. Part of me wants to catch her and release her into the wild so she can naturally die with the next frost like all the other spiders did, or maybe have one last chance to find Mr. Kitchenspider...but we're really fond of her.
I'm sure we're creating some sort of spidery existential crisis. She'll start weaving angsty poetry into her morning webs, then sit in the curtain bracket where she usually spends the day like that person at the coffee shop who just never leaves. She'll offer her opinions and theories to the cellar-spiders who keep trying to usurp her domain (they fail. They're lame), then moodily sigh that, "I guess it's just too deep for you to understand."
We are a husband and wife who are trying to live simply. We are learning much as we transition from life in the city to life in the country. Come along with us, and maybe you can also learn a thing or two as well.
We love writing for these fine folks as well!
