a little of this and a HUGE bit of that…

Howdy, All! 😀

Well…things have been pretty hectic around here the last week or so.  We’ve been full in the swing of getting packed and ready to move, finalizing our home purchase, getting the girlies all registered and ready for school, prepping for a garage sale this weekend, completing a new “secret” 😉  project on the looms, baby sitting my great-nephew, and unfortunately…spider hunting.

My hubby was certainly surprised when he went to turn on the shower one morning and this GIANT spidey was looking him in the eye from 6 inches away!  This is the biggest specimen so far…we had to show pics comparing him with 2 quarters, because I don’t think anyone would have believed us otherwise.  We just couldn’t let him loose around our house for fear that he would somehow make it back inside, so we took him to Fort Borst Park, just up the road from us and deposited him in a nice woodsie area.  I think he’ll like his new home…

To get that bit of nastiness off your mind…I thought you’d like a little baby cuteness to start your Friday off right, lol!  My little nephew Blake is just a doll…I love his personality!  Here’s a pic that proves that knitting looms aren’t just for adults, lol!

Loomin' Fun for Everyone!

…and a sweet little dancin’ video.  Here he is with his mama, Brette…he can’t walk, but he can definitely boogie!

Have a great weekend!

    Oooh, yuck on the spider :p I don’t think I’m as nice as you. That thing would be inside my vacuum by now.

    Super cuteness on the baby 🙂 He’s a doll. And he certainly does know how to boogie! Too cute 🙂

    Wow, you let it go too. My DH killed ours. It was a huge orb spider and caught so many bugs over our BBQ and he said it was about to lay eggs so he killed it 😦 It did such a great job catching bugs I hated to see it go but it grossed me out. You did such a great video, save it for Halloween, it is fantastic. You are so talented.
    Packing, garage sale, new school for kids AND you have time to blog and knit?? Ok, what drugs are you on? High on Life or what?? Never sleep I presume. LOL

    That huge spider is probably a Fishing Spider. I found one in our shower, too.

    Hi, Kim! 🙂

    From our studies, we think it’s more along the line of a Giant House Spider…more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_house_spider

    Have a great day…and keep that shower clear, lol! 😉

    I probably should have asked where you live–when we lived in the central US we found a truly HUGE spider in the shower and found it to be a fishing spider. They can actually catch minnows!
