Elaborate Food Scheme, Planting Seventy-Six, Letting Go

1. Like graffiti artists who strike in the night, spiders leave beautiful artwork for for us to discover in the morning. This was a huge installation and the spider must be sleeping it off somewhere.
2. We walk the church property, planning the placement of trees. It comes alive off the paper and I can envision it will be beautiful and park-like. After driving all over the place and running crazy errands, it feels good to stroll around in the fields.
3. I finally crashed at home in an old comfortable chair and ate my dinner at 9:00 in front of the debate. I was worried it might not be good for digestion, but it was OK. I fell asleep three-fourths of the way through. (Not for lack of content. I was just so tired.)

  2. Ingenious describing this as "a huge installation"--it certainly is! And quite beautiful, too.

    I missed the debates. Heard only the opening on my car radio on my way home back home from a class. When I got in, I was too tired to turn the tube on. I'll read about it eventually!

  3. I love spiderwebs, as long as they aren't across my front door (as they often are.) :) Beautiful photo and I chuckle at the thought of the weary spider.

  5. I watch a spider outside my kitchen window working on his web, scaling the building, going up and down like a window washer. They're neat.

  6. We have been seeing spider webs like that all over the place lately here, too! The spiders are getting extra-industrious before winter, maybe? They are so stunning when covered in dew.
