Battle of the Webs

No, not the innerwebs...well, perhaps, it is the innerwebs...the webs inside my house.

I love spring. I love summer. The sun is beautiful. It rains a little bit too much for my liking, but the flowers need it, right? I have to exchange my comfy cozy sweaters for tee-shirts, and my boots for barefeet. I have the enormous privilege to watch the seasons change along the water of a branch of the Rideau River.

But the start of spring also brings with it bugs! Spiders in particular. Black flies like to converge around my head. Okay. The mosquito hunt will soon begin. Wasps and hornets will terrify the beejeebers out of me. And in all honesty I can handle most spiders, but the new house we moved into in November seems to have come with these big ugly brown spiders in almost every corner.

I seem to have successfully escorted most of them outside, but why of all the 8-legged creatures did my house come with these ones. Ewwww!

The spiders will eat most of your other creepy crawlies if you let them. Spiders can be friends. Ugly friends, but friends.

Oh, I agree. I learned to live quite harmoniously with them in my other house. I'm okay with them so long as they remain along the ceiling and not darting across my floor or appearing in the bathtub. Plus these buggers bite! Kind of hard to live harmoniously with that with a toddler who'd probably try to play with them. :-)
