It’s the Labor Day holiday here and I’m trying to have a calm, restful day. I’m still been a little jittery from the big storm last week (Hurricane Irene). Even though I weathered Irene rather well, my body went into “Defcon One” status for it, and it doesn’t just throttle down right away once the crisis is past. Perhaps I have a miniature version of PTSD. So a nice peaceful day would go a long way to getting me back in the groove.

And so I slept late (8 am is late for me) and had a leisurely breakfast, then went to the bathroom to begin my daily ablutions. Things were going well, and then it was time to pull off some toilet paper. But there was a little surprise waiting for me …

Ah, life; always some unexpected surprise awaits!

  1. Jim, As to the spider: I think he was in the perfect place to be sent back to his Maker. I’d have taken the entire piece of paper and down the pipes, with an apology to the little spider for taking its life. Sorry, you were in the wrong place at the really wrong time. Sorry, little spider.

    Hope you got some rest after the stress of Irene. I have experienced being just missed by a tornado, in 1966–missed it by 5 minutes or so. If our car had not stalled during the terrible rain storm that accompanied the tornado, we’d have been in the very place the tornado hit the worst. We likely would have flown to who knows where and been killed. I still see pictures of events of that day; the terrible toll on people.

    So, I can “relate” to your stress due to extreme weather. Tho one was a hurricane and the other a tornado, both are weather at its extreme; and weather at its most extreme is something truly to fill one with awe. It’s not something one cares to repeat. The scenes I saw that day have never left my mind–as I say, I can relate. So, I do hope you’ve had some time to de-tress today and will find life calmer and less stressed in many ways after a day of rest. MCS
