there are spiders in this one

Hidey-ho, blog friends. Aunt Flo's in town and I've been feeling particularly crappy and sluggish all week.

Never fear, though, because I took a rally nap this afternoon and got to work putting together a dinner of champions, which is baking and boiling to perfection right this moment. Consequently, it's about as hot in the kitchen as it is outside, so I took advantage of the momentary cooking lull to escape to the living room.

I've been dealing with some real life stuff this week, too, so forgive me, my loves, if I've been distant. I promise I'll be back and better than ever soon.

For now, meet my friend who has taken up residence on the wheel of the recycling bin:

What the heck is that white cone ball thing? And please don't tell me it's holding spider eggs, because I do not need a bunch of baby spiders being born in my garage.

Just for fun, here's a game of "how many spiders are in this web":

That's all for tonight. I'm going to crack open a beer and have my dinner.

Why did I continue reading after I saw this post title!? GAHHHHHH!!! That one in the recycling bin is terrifying. And yeah I don't know about that cone/ball thing, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's not a nest.

Sorry to tell you but that is a sac full of spiderlings. They will hatch and then leave the web to make their own web. From the picture it doesn't look like a poisonous spider though.

I hate it when Flo comes to town at the wrong time. Buzz kill. And that recycling bin spider is pretty scary. I would make someone else go near that
