What is this huge spider I just found at my backdoor? 
He’s been caught and now is in a small specimen container outside for the kids to investigate.

Edit: It’s a Spotted Orbweaver. The orb shaped web is very large and is often found on man made buildings especially near outdoor lights. Most conspicuous in late summer and early fall.

Princess M’s submission for the Create a Pumpkin contest. She’s determined to keep her winning streak going and is aiming for 1st place this time. She won 2nd place 2 years ago and 3rd place last year. I think she has a good chance this year.

I’m no where near my daily/weekly step goal. Time to blast some music and have my own little dance party while making dinner/doing dishes.

Somehow the praying mantis got in. It just flew from behind the computer to the doors. Caught him and put him back outside.

I think my husband’s almost weekly trips to Menards are having some influence.
