I hope everyone is having a super, fantastic Wednesday. I apologize for yesterday. But yesterday wasn’t a very good day for me. My blood pressure sort of went crazy (after visiting two doctors, whose wouldn’t, lol!). I use to take blood pressure medicine off and on. Mostly off because after being on it awhile my pressure bottoms out. Then if I want to stand up straight I have to stop it. Last night I got tired of fighting it and ate the hell out of some cayenne peppers 😦 ! You talking about a hot momma, but they did take care of the blood pressure. I am normal today, well what’s normal for me! Right!
You might be wondering why the horrible spider as a graphic. Well he plays into my blood pressure ordeal. Several years ago, I almost lost my leg to a bunch of recluse spiders. The pretty thing above is not a recluse but a writing spider. They will kill the recluse and keep it away. The first year I had one show up it started out in my corner on my porch. I would talk to it as I was unlocking the door. A few weeks later, I guess the spider decided he wanted to be friends. I opened the door and there he was right in the middle of this grapevine wreath I have hanging. I holler because I didn’t expect him to be that close and you have to admit they are a little frightening. My husband heard me, he came running. He was going to kill it. I told him, “hell no, he wasn’t,” and hand over the broom immediately. He gave me the broom. Believe it or not, I put the tip of the broom up to his web and he walked right on it. It didn’t dawn on me till afterwards what if he had kept on walking (I probably would have been changing drawers!). Anyway to cut this story short, I have bushes around the porch where I originally placed this one. I now have eight of them adorning those bushes. The recluse are gone. Now I have to figure out if these guys will do anything about wolf spiders. Cause I honestly believe I got a bite from a wolf spider. That’s the only time my blood pressure goes haywire when I get bit by something poisonous. Knowing my luck, the wolf spiders are smart enough to avoid my jolly little army of writing spiders. I must add these spiders also keep noisy neighbors at bay! Hmm, perhaps I use start a market on writing spiders! Any takers?
Have a great one, my sweets!
Luv & Hugs,
