The spider is the moon: pictures from my Sunday adventure

The spider is the moon

Tonight, the spiders cling to hidden webs. The moon is a spider. The trees are her many legs.

The streetlamp is just a streetlamp.

Cool

Twilight is delightful when its colors are inverted. The streetlamps devour all souls! AAAH!

On a serious note, I’ve been working 24/7 on a scientific poster about phytoplankton genes, so it was great to stretch my legs this evening. I filmed a spider (pictured above) as she built her web – the process took thirteen minutes and was really relaxing. No wonder they’re into web-making.

A Haunting From The Past :D

Spooky alert! I was Skyping with my mom tonight, when this happened:

Mom

So, today I got a weird email from the person who now owns our Tex home (note – we lived in this house for 3 years when I was a teen)…. she & her husband wanted to know if we ever experienced anything strange at the home because her 6 yr old apparently has.‏

What kind of weird things?

Mom
‎11‎:‎50‎ ‎PM
Oooooooo, oooooooo‏
She did not explain.‏ She just introduced herself then asked if we had.‏

We have a mystery, Watson! I hope the new family didn’t pull up the living room floorboards, because my brother and I hid secret notes under them. Nothing scary, though. I think? It’s hard to remember. Would Teen Little Badger put spooky notes under the floorboards? Oh dear …
