The Spider, The Cat, The Mist and the Crow

So let me ask ya... What would you do if you woke up on Saturday morning, walked over to the window to open the blinds and found this covering your entire window???!!!
Then.... not two minutes later.... this runs in the background!!!
See the cat?? Orange and black cat??? See Mr. Icky spider still???
Then you look at the sky and through the trees and it's all misty and foggy!!!
Then a Crow... yes a crow, lands on the bushes and looks at ya. (I couldn't get his picture as he wouldn't quit wiggling and then flew off). Dag!
Well I sure thought long and hard about it.
And let me tell ya.... I ran to get my "Witchee Poo hat and my favorite Witchee glasses!"
It's gonna be a great Halloween this year!!!
bunny hugs,
This week IGF cool, weirdo things that happen in a non scary, cool weirdo kinda way!

Hi Shell, I love this weirdo, non scarey tale! :) I think this will be a great Halloween too! OK that spider web is just freaky. But its a work of art too!
I hope you and the bunnies have a hopping good week. Thanks for stopping by and making my day brighter... Big hugs, gail

Yepper, as I posted on my FB page one day, I have flying monkeys and I am not afraid to use them! I have Matilda outside my kitchen door, and Martha is in the basement...I saw her by the furnace, and I figure she can keep the crickets under control...

Love the hat and glasses Shell, not so fond of the giant spider! Wow they grow big down there,yikes. Fall is in the air up here and it feels like Halloween is just around the corner.

Aren't you just the cutest in your Halloween hat and glasses? I love your post today!

I wonder what Razzie and Sugie would have thought of the kitty in their yard!

That spider and his web look very familiar... I think his/her relatives are living by my mailbox. Love your witchie poo hat and glasses.


Tedi said...

Shell, I had to laugh at your spider. Two weeks ago, I cleaned two of my windows that had spiders with webs and great big full nest! I wonder what that says about the upcoming winter. It must mean something! I'll have to research it and see. Hugs, Tedi
p.s. Love the outfit ;-)

I love spiders webs, incredible to think that something so small could produce something so intricate.

I am reallllyyy sccccared of the witch, lol.

FrecklesandDeb said...

We were quite frightened by that spider! But, it was good practice for Halloween. What a great looking witch you are!

Brenda said...

I'd run for my camera as fast as my feet would take me!

Nancy said...

Hi Shell!

You are cute as a bug's ear in your witchee poo hat! That spider web was awesome! There is something very naughty in me that likes to tear them down so they have to rebuild them...maybe that is sharing too much about me!

I like your letter writing swap. I, too, like to write letters and feel sad that it is becoming a lost art.

Have a lovely day! Thank you for my winning the book! I e-mailed you a little bit ago. Sorry I didn't come and check on it - since I almost never win anything I didn't think I would need

Hi! Your blog was read by just the right! About 10 years ago we found a spider like yours in our backyard. I called Riverside agricultural department to identify it and was told the scientific name (but we always referred to 'her' as our zipper spider because of the web). It was a her because she had several brown egg sacks made in the nearby bushes.If you catch moths and grasshoppers and throw them in her web, she will love it.

Debbie said...

Hi Shell....thanks for visiting my blog this week. You wrote the cutest blog post....what a weird series of events! Those zipper spiders scare the poo-poo out of me and we have a lot of them around here....I have to look twice before I walk outside to be sure I'm not going to walk right smack into one of their webs....I would freak out for sure if I did!!!

PS: Love your witchee-poo hat!
