Spring in all its spider webbed glory

For the record…..I detest spider webs. My dislike of the silky strings is akin to most women’s reaction to the creators of the strings that fly into people’s eyes, face, hair, hand or mouth unaware. I do however like waking up on a bright spring morning and catching glimpse of webs covered in dew or blades of grass woven together with fine silk threads or my absolute favorite a pine tree with webs in its boughs. That to me is part of the beauty of spring.
(It also helps to know where the webs are so I don’t get caught in one and start looking totally foolish as I beat myself silly trying to make sure its all off of me)

Here’s to spring in all its spider web covered glory!

Aside from a horrible driving experience my weekend was rather nice. My kiddos and I braved the rain in true Northwest style and tackled the mummy and pyramid corn mazes at Carpinito Bros corn maze and pumpkin patch. Even in the down pour we had a great time carrying on what has now became a yearly tradition. The reward for braving two miles of corn in the pouring rain……miniature pumpkins and fresh roasted corn. Yesterday said miniature pumpkins were gutted and carved. I think my daughter did a pretty good job on them. Here’s to hoping everyone on the East Coast is able to remain safe and dry in the midst of Sandy. For those not affected by the hurricane I hope you have a plesant week.
