which i know is not all that interesting to anyone, except i had a guest. it wasn't one of the usual bath busting saints, it was this little tiny black spider. she was hiding in my washcloth from last night which was draped over the water tap. and when i finally had the perfect depth, heat and amount of bubbles, i watched her lower herself down to the water. i told her not to do that, it wasn't a good idea but she just kept coming lower down. til finally her tiny thread like legs just brushed the top of the bubbles, then she said...yikes! and tucked them up tight before she frantically began climbing again. she had to stop three times to catch her breath before she finished her very long for her climb back up whence she came, but eventually she made it back to the washcloth and slipped around behind it to safety. i ilke watching spiders altho they scare me if they sneak up when i am not looking. my big over the computer spider disappeared while i was away in the hospital. i hope she decided to move on her own and wasn't swept away by one of the volunteers.
i know that most people don't think much of spiders but i like them because they are alive. they struggle, they succeed and they fail but like all living creatures except man, they rarely give up and stop trying. you have got to respect the value and effort they put into their lives. but i am not sure my bathroom (which is soon to be gutted) is a really good choice for a place to live for that tiny little thing.
