Dear Blogger friends. Last week as I picked up my camera from my desk, I spotted a movement under my office chair. Turning on my camera and zooming in, I saw it was a spider. The image isn't very clear as I didn't want to disturb it by going down to eye-level with it; the carpet is also brown and didn't help to show up the spider. I took several photos and then walked to the kitchen cabinet to fetch a glass. I always scoop insects and especially spiders into a tall glass and take them outside - and release them.
However, when I bent down under my chair, the spider was missing. I searched the surrounding area but no spider.
The heavy summer rains played havoc with the bridge on the farm as well. The Little Tugela, which runs through the farm burst its banks several times during January and February. The debris, trees, branches and other flotsam caused damage to the bridge. Ron described how John and his workers where rebuilding the bridge and strengthening for future weather in the summer. She urged me to walk down there when I take Skabby on his daily walk.
Which I did...
The distance was much further than our daily meander to the dam but as always Skabby LOVED the extra romp.
