We're on our 4th (or is it 5th?) day of rain here. But it looks like the clouds should be parting tonight or tomorrow.
The rain has been a great excuse to hang inside and do a few projects. I've been sewing in 5-10 minute increments on the quilt. And we've been cooking up a storm.
We've also been completely enamored with the spider webs around our house. No garden orb weavers this Fall, but another kind of orb weaver. A spotted orb weaver maybe.
These spiders begin their webs after the sun goes down and then are gone before the sun comes up. But with the cloudy days we've been having, we've been able to see them well into the morning.
Sharpie markers are also handy to have on hand.
Wyatt even added a few little spiders just for fun.
I used to be a bit creaped out by spiders and spider webs. But the more I research and watch, I am amazed.
My parents have an antique bowl painted with spider webs. I used to think it was a bit weird. Who would want to paint webs on good china? But I think I'm beginning to understand.
Our tablecloth is not close to good china, but I understand how someone could be inspired by these most delicate of nature's creations.
