Welcome to the Occupation

A cloudy day at the beginning of September. It's 75˚F, with the humidity at 89˚. I can hear thunder in the distance. Last night, neighborhood idiots shot off fireworks until sometime after midnight. Selwyn wasn't pleased.

I don't have much to say about yesterday. I'm in the process of dealing with the very last bit of work I have to do in order to put Dark Horse behind me (which pertains to Alabaster: Boxcar Tales #13). Admittedly, it could have been over and done with weeks ago, but I've procrastinated. I'm hoping today will actually be productive.

Probably, yesterday's bright point was the thumb-sized orb weaver Spooky found spinning not far from the back door. There are photos behind the cut:

I'll aim for a more substantial entry tomorrow. There's only so much can be said about days like these.

Briefly,
Aunt Beast

Glad to hear you are getting work done. It can be slow, loathsome and plodding, but I am glad to hear that you keep at it. That takes no small measure of strength.

I always enjoy the photos. I have a similar species on my back porch. She weaves nightly and takes it down in the morning. Spiders are good story medicine.
