It has not been a secret on this blog that I am absolutely terrified of spiders. It's called arachnophobia, and I have done several posts about it. So you can only imagine my horror when I woke up one morning, went in the kitchen, and saw this shadow on the wall. YIKES!! I was paralyzed with fear, heart pounding. It looked like the biggest spider I had ever seen in my life, a monster spider of some kind. Here are some of the panicked thoughts that ran through my mind. Where's hubby...must run...find a male neighbor to kill it...call 911!! But when I cast a frantic glance around the room to find it, here is what it turned out to be. It was the shadow of a dragonfly suncatcher I had stuck to the window with a suction cup. I heaved a sigh of relief. Needless to say, I did NOT need any coffee. It's good to remember that lots of things are not what they seem, and that was a very good thing for me on that morning.
