Use #78 for humidity domes .. aka how to almost end your marriage

 While trying to search the internet for divine intervention answers as to the poor health of the forested areas on the farm, I hear my husband walk up behind me. 

 "Honey, what do you want me to do with this?"  he says sweetly.

 I spin around to to see what he's talking about and encounter this..

Being a rather easy going person, I then proceeded to scream. I wasn't exactly expecting a spider the size of a cat to be 2 inches away from my nose. 
 He found this in the basement. Ohhh.. he was completely aware of his actions. 100% deliberate. 


 It is actually very impressive, but I can appreciate it much much more when it isn't right in my face. I am also hoping it is an only child.. a lone survivor who's nearest relatives are at least 2 houses away.

 And to those spouses who think that doing such a thing is a good idea..hilarious even..  If you pull this prank, and their birthday is coming up.. or say.. a 14th wedding anniversary..

  You'd better make sure you are giving them a really great gift.


  1. Awwww he is just a little feller... Not that scary at all :)

  2. How ironic we post post blogs on ways to improve marriage, LOL. Thanks again for the seaberry advice and personally, I'd show appreciation to this spider with my shoe. Otherwise, I'd have 7 females screaming from the top of the kitchen table.

  3. I don't mind spiders, I just wasn't expecting my husband, Capt. Hilarious, to be pulling one of his antics. I am guessing it is a wolf spider.. I just let it go in the garden.

    No problem about the sea berries. I will track down some planting info for your garden. AZ has a huge range or growing conditions with a ton of microclimates. A lot of the success in what you plant really depends on timing/ when you plant.

  4. Ugh!!! Me no like spiders in the house!!!
