When In the Pantry...

   Walking into the pantry today, something caught the corner of my eye. I was busy; no time for nonsense, yet I stopped and stood there for just a minute. My eyes came to focus on several little black spots; black spots that seemed to be everywhere.
   With no idea what on earth could have caused this phenomenon, my hand reached out to swipe them away from the shelves when...the moved. I don't mean they drifted along; no, they scurried here and there and everywhere causing me to leap, jump, holler and swat. They weren't little black spots; they were little baby spiders!
   After some seriously embarrassing moves (thankfully no teens were on hand to use this against me in the future), a damp cloth and a big broom...the pantry is clear again; safe to enter..at least for now.
   So, when in the pantry..be careful what you reach for!!

Ugh - that reminds me of an apartment we lived in shortly after we were first married. Not too long after we moved in, I walked in the kitchen one morning and saw a bunch of tiny spiders hanging down from their own little threads, attached to the ceiling, somewhat near the main light fixture. I guess a momma spider had hidden her egg sack in there. It was not a fun morning, and I think I looked up at that ceiling first thing every morning for as long as we lived there.
