Spider Surprise

I'm traumatized by something that happened to me today, and it was so horrible that it acts retroactively as an excuse for why I haven't blogged this week.

I found THIS on my oranges today:

Now, look, this guy is dead. He can't do anything to me. But that's not the point. The point is, WHAT ELSE IS LIVING IN MY FRUIT?!?

Spiders don't typically terrify me, unless they take me by surprise.

When they surprise me, this is what I do.

Actually, this is funny, I went looking for Bella the other night, and found her totally wrapped in blankets (above). She'd tucked herself in for the night. I'm at a loss to figure out how she did it. That blanket cocoon was snug, and had no visible entry points.

Tomorrow, photos from Pompeii. Eventually, a photo or two from Rome, and a big pile of photos from Santorini!


  1. Just wait...the critters in Thailand will be insane!!!! I'm scared already!
