Did you know that staycations can be really awesome? Although it would have been nice if Mikey could have taken this week off with me, being home alone for a whole week has allowed me to spend a huge amount of time relaxing and reading to my heart’s content. Yes, being at home means that you are surrounded by everyday chores that won’t go away, but I just make sure that I get up early and get the chores out of the way so that I can spend the rest of the day doing whatever the hell I want, and it has been great! I feel totally rested (well, except for taking Daniel to work this morning at 5am :)) and content. I just can’t believe that the week is almost over already. Where the heck did the days go?
Today, after finishing one book I decided to take a break and water my gardens. As we now pay for our actual water usage instead of paying a flat monthly fee, we have started using rain barrels whenever we can for watering the flowers and veggies to help keep our water bill down. I grabbed the watering can and went to take the lid off the rain barrel when I noticed that I was about to walk into a web with a big juicy spider in the middle. On closer inspection, I noticed that the spider was busy wrapping up its prey, a fly I think, and I found it really fascinating, so I grabbed my camera and snapped pictures as I watched the spider at work. Here is one of my favourite shots which I must admit had my nerves on edge because I was really close and kept expecting the spider to jump onto my camera lens LOL!!
