My first instinct when I see bugs or spiders is KILL IT DEAD OMG KILL but I figured I'd go check and see if it's even poisonous. Having lived in Australia, you're just taught to avoid creepy crawlies and if you have to, kill first, ask questions later.
Turns out it's just a harmless garden spider. It's huge, which freaks people out, but it eats a lot of pesky bugs. So I'll leave it be :) And name her Henrietta. Because I've decided she's a girl spider.
Oh, over the weekend, the hubs spotted a snake where the hose is in the front yard. Good luck to the plants in the front because there's no chance in hell I'm ever touching that hose again. Nooooo thank you.
