Rick got home from Little Rock last night, and we had a DATE! :-) It's been a while - way too long - since we really "went out".
We spend so much time together that we forget in the midst of work and house and life that we still need that quality one on one time - away from work and house and life.
We went to Foster's Place in Pickton. Ordered a pizza - no sauce, canadian bacon, mushrooms, green peppers, red onions on 1/2 and black olives on the other 1/2. Jalepeno peppers on the side. Garden salad. Mozzerella cheese sticks. It was all GOOD. :-)
Then, we were blessed to hear Jacoby Smith sing. He is amazing! Songs of George Strait, Keith Whitley, Charley Pride - love songs, slow songs, toe tapping songs. Really enjoyable!
2 hours later, we come home.
Life hits full force! A spider from @&@& was on the frame of the back door. OMW!!! That thing was huge! I have a TERROR of the small spiders! OMW!!! I could have shot it! It was that huge!
Rick grabbed the poison spray and doused it really good. Course, it didn't die immediately. Oh, no! It had to run under the frig. So, Rick put a good stream of the poison all around the frig on the floor. We go out of the kitchen.
Just a few minutes later, I walked back into the kitchen and there is the monster! Sitting on the floor in front of the frig! OMW!!!
I grabbed the flyswatter and stretched as far as I could, took aim, and swatted! Screaming the whole time! OMW!!! It was bigger than the flyswatter!!! But thankfully my aim was DEADLY!!!
No, I did not pick it up! That is not in my job description! Much to the chagrin of my husband. But I do not care! I am not going to get that close even to a dead spider!
SHUDDER ... SHAKE ... SHIVER!!!
Oh, the terror!!!
Needless to say, it was a rough night!!! After seeing one of those monster things I have the hardest time getting to the point that they don't haunt and torment me - even when I cannot see them!
And these are the "wolf spiders" - those creepy, hairy things that lunge and chase you. OMW!!!!!
Lord in Heaven - deliver me!!!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
