Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Lost by Oversight

Sometimes we get so busy, that we forget to look around. As a result, many of the mysteries of God's creation are lost to us.

 Way out in the middle of a field of snow, well away from any bushes or trees, this lowly little spider was trudging along. Why? Who knows?
Where did he come from? How did he get there? Again, who knows?
This little black speck caught my eye and stood out midst the field of white, going on about his/her business impervious to the cares of the world.

The picture makes him look like a human eating monster from a scary SI-FI movie.

I hope I don't have bad dreams tonight.

Yikes - I'm not fond of spiders, but for some reason these photos make me feel a little sad for him - poor little spider out in the snow...

I'm not a fan of spiders but those are really good pictures of him! I guess he's waking up from somewhere? It's always strange to see these tiny creatures out in the snow, just popping up. It's a sign the snow is melting. I hope!
