Na Na pinches her pennies

Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.

Spider challenged me

Did you ever see a spider poop before?  Well I have now and wanted to tell someone about it.  I sure wish I had taken my camera with me but shucks I was just taking the trash out to the can.  I was not expecting a big spider to challenge me for his right to have the flies buzzing around the can.  He (not sure of male or female) had a black body about half the size of a thumbnail with white spots on it. The front legs were about an inch long and I believe it had green fangs.  It looked something like this:  black spider with white marks.

When I started to raise the can lid the spider raised up on its hind legs as if to make himself look bigger.  I can just imagine his thoughts.  You don’t scare me big giant person.  This is my territory and I’ll fight you for it.  I just stared intently at the spider.  Well, while reared up in a fighting position, the spider pooped.  White poop.  No, it was not webbing which also comes from the back end.  It was poop that made a splat.  Oh you poor thing.  I guess I scared him so much he pooped.  All I could do is laugh.  Out loud.  I gently opened the can lid from the other side and pushed the small bag inside.  I returned a few minutes later with my camera but the spider was gone.

What a nice staycation I’m having.  I’m starting to see the humor of life again.

      Sorry, I just found your comment. Yes, that’s why I laughed. He had guts to challenge a giant. I never kill spiders cause they eat pesky bugs.

      Sorry Jean, I just found your comment. I’ve been busy getting my kitchen in order for canning now that I’m getting foodbank foods again. I’ve been staying away from the internet. It always draws me in and nothing gets done.

    Sometimes it’s the ability to see the little things that help. Some of the posts on my Mumbling Mike site were when I saw something small or a bit different

      That was probably due to wordpress changes made recently. Its those complicated changes that have driven me to start the switch to youtube.
