Except for maybe Evelyn. Meet Evelyn. She is what is called a Cat Faced Spider and I adore her. For years we have had one who lives on our porch, tucked under the edge until night, when she comes out to feed. Now of course this isn't the same spider each year, but many Evelyns. Pretty soon she will leave us. But she will also leave her egg sac so that I will get to befriend a new Evelyn in the future.
So I have been cozying up in my house. I have to admit, I like nothing better than sitting in my spot in the living room, with all my lamps lit and just being. I realized the other day, I have 11 little lamps in my main living space. I detest bright lights. They make me uncomfortable. So I find lamps in my travels and change them out throughout the year. This is my favorite and sits right next to me.What a lovely glow it gives.
I am a sucker for a unique lamp shade too. I fell in love with this lamp at Shopko. My daughter kept trying to drag me away, saying, "You already have too many lamps." I do. But I went back the next day....lol
I love this lady. She was found at a yard sale and no one wanted her because she had been broken and fixed. She had been part of a lamp. When I picked her up and gathered her to me, the owner was so happy that I wanted her, she gave her to me for free. I placed her where my lamp (to the right) would catch her and make her glow. She seems very happy amongst the vines.
So today I will venture out and check my garden. Do a little mowing and sprucing. Hubby did some pruning of the Red Maple and it looks great. I have about 3 weeks to enjoy the yard and then I need to start putting it to bed for the year. We have a night game tonight which we always love. Under the Lights at Washington-Grizzly Field. Coming up for me? A trip to California with my youngest. More later. :) Always, Kit
