This weekend was a pretty mild one compared to recent ones. Friday, I got home from work to find Derek working on his boat project and he decided he wanted to show me these beauties he found holed up in an old jetski exhaust.
Incase you're unfamiliar with the arachnid species, those are two black widow spiders and they were HUGE.
A better picture to reference the size. I'm so so so glad I wasn't the one who found them, because I would have most definitely shat my pants. As I was taking these pictures, I hear Derek yell and I thought he had found another widow, but it was only this cute little guy:
Of course as soon as Derek handed him to me, the little booger decided to pee all over my hand. He made up for it by sitting so pretty for a picture. Okay now that I'm done grossing most of you out. That night we went for sushi and a movie date, but it turned into sushi and a redbox (if you haven't watched Argo yet, please do) which was fine by me.
Saturday, I spent 90% of the day doing this:
(10 points if you can name that book!)
And the other 10% doing some laundry and occasionally wondering out to the barn to check that Derek hadn't been bitten by any black widows.
Sunday I did some more of the above, writing a paper, putting together a presentation, and then got ready to work an evening shift to make some extra $$ as work. It started off boring but then I had an exploding ostomy bag and a code, so it definitely didn't end boring. I celebrated national ice cream day with some soft serve and lunch break in my car.
Yummay in mah tummay!
Obviously my front facing camera is not even 1/2 the quality of my actual one. Oh well.
Link up with Sami and share your shenanigans! Happy Monday!
