Accomplishments And Arachnids

I feel successful: 3 pairs of Janae's bloomers that have been sitting in my sewing heap for the past few months have finally been finished. What good timing for bad weather that sent me to the basement with nothing to do but finished procrastinated projects.

In other news, the mentally challenged crickets in our basement left me alone as well while I sewed barefooted, and that is a good thing. Had the electricity gone off I don't know what I would have done.

Crickets function in the dark; I don't. Crickets find me in the dark and that's freaky. Crickets love the darkness rather than the light because their deeds are evil. I don't like their evilness. And these crickets are big and that makes their evil deeds even bigger. In mass quantities, you get even greater deeds of evilness. Yuck.

At least I don't have it as bad as this mom here is having with arachnids.

Did I mention yuck yet?

As a kid, I knew where all the goodies were "hidden". One day, I got into the opened bag of chocolate chips, and just as I was putting a handful to my mouth, I realized that it included a roach!! What a surprise! It didn't get eaten. I know someone you know that actually ate a roach for a measley $5.00. Go ahead, step on a cricket, it will give you something to talk about. :)

When the tent caterpellers attack our apple trees my husband vacums them into a shopvac full of water. The neighbors came out to ask what was going on. This year we were away when the caterpellers came so the leaves were munched up and the trees had a rather "lacey" look for a while.

I guess every area has its own little pests.

PS we got loads of apples anyway.

PSS - I read that blog about the Daddy Longlegs - interesting facts I didn't know.
