An Unexpected Visitor

There are two things in this world that will make me scream like a girl. One is heights. The other is spiders. So, you can imagine how pleased I was when my son showed me this:

It’s a bit hard to see in this picture exactly how huge this spider is. To give you a better idea, the abdomen is about the size of a loonie. Add on the legs and you’ve got a better picture.

It lives up on the inside part of my front porch roof, over my rocking chair. I can’t even go out and sit for fear that it will drop on my lap and people will start calling me Little Miss Muffet! It’s really, truly a horrible thing. I don’t want to kill it either, because it’s just doing it’s thing, hanging out eating mosquito’s. But, look at the thing! It’s so….creepy!

Maybe I should take it a peace offering and make friends with it.
