I always complain to Terry that he saves too much STUFF. We have a 3 stall extra garage that was meant to be his work shop/storage area. I swear we have every tonka toy and tool and can of something or other that ever came into this house stored in that garage.
He NEVER EVER reminds me about how much stuff I save. Jeans that I'm going to make something out of, tubs of fabric, yarn skeins. But lets face it, mine is NOT a 3 stall garage, lol.
So, that's not what this is about. The picture is a spider web on denim that I saved because everyone needs a CQ spider web.
What this IS about is all the spider webs that are appearing EVERYWHERE. In our yard, in our window sills. I even had one on the sink that was spun while I was sleeping!! Usually we don't see this amount of webbing until closer to Autumn. A Google search confirmed that I didn't just imagine it. You DO see more spider webs in Late Summer and Autumn when the weather cools. Our weatherman said we are in late summer. Let me tell you, August in northern Indiana may be late summer but it's usually sweltering. Not spider web spinning weather at all. I like to watch what wildlife is doing to try to determine what the next season will bring. We hardly saw any squirrels burying nuts yet. Usually that indicates the winter won't be harsh. Early spiders? I'd say early fall. But who knows?
Let me know if you think you have any signs from wildlife of season change. Maybe tales your parents told. Should I get a Farmer's Almanac?
One thing for sure. We are going to get bales of straw to put along the house along the bathroom wall. Last year our pipes froze and we're not taking a chance on a repeat!! Just in case.
