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.

Beautiful spider. We get a lot of them around here but they're orange--someone told me they were garden spiders but now I see the pictures on Wikipedia of garden spiders look quite different so I'm guessing what I see around here are also orb weavers? I've taken lots of pictures and video of them (like this one).
