Halloween is Around the Corner... 29 days...

I've grown a few pumpkins this year... not much else grew as we have had a very wet summer. I'll give these pumpkins to my neighbors as I'll be in Amsterdam on Oct. 31st!
I love when my chickens are looking at me saying "What are you looking at?"
I'm not so sure that the one in the middle isn't a rooster~sorry neighbors this one stays if she is... I love her/him... time will tell. I'm so thankful I have such a great chicken/cat sitter that will be living here.

Spiders are out.... eekkkkkk.... does anyone know what kind of spider this is? We have so many of these I hope thy are not poisonous!

This time next week I'll be in the town Essie lives in!

I'm staying at this hotel for the first 3 days.... NH Marquette

Your chickies are so cute! The spiders? Not so much LOL. We have a lot of spiders too, think it is the time of year. I have a feeling your's (like ours) is your garden-variety arachnid.

I so envy you visiting Essie, you must be getting so excited!

Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful Pattee.

Hugs,

Sue

PS - I don't use the pelt either, but cut the hair off first (It was rather confusing the way I wrote it on my blog).

Hey Pateeeee! Wow, I love the chickens! I don't know what sort of spider, but I think the large outdoor type are not poisonous--we have a few like this in the garden ourselves. LOL--this doesn't mean you should start playing with them, though I doubt you will do that, either! Wow, what fun, going to Europe. I'm working on being a globe-trotter, too! :) HUGS Zan

Lol at first I was like awww pumpkins! Aww chickens!! Then all of a sudden, eee spiders!! I'm not exactly sure what kind it is but I don't think it's poisonous. You can always google it :)

Pattee, it is a BIG spider! eeeewe!

Amsterdam? WOW! How exciting!

Yes, we went from Winter to Spring to Fall to Fall it seems! Do chickens eat pumkins? Also, how do cats act around chickens and vice versa?

This spider lives in Germany too. We have a lot in the garden. it is not toxic to humans. Latin: Araneus diadematus. Wat a wonderful name.

This picture is from the Castle Marquette where the diner/restaurant is, the hotelrooms are in the old farmhouse on the same estate ;D

Hi Pattee! You must be so excited about this trip. :) I love your chickens! I think that spider is some kind of orb weaver. They are good garden spiders and eat pests. I remember reading that orb weavers are reluctant to bite - lol! That's good news, right? haha! Happy Sunday to you! xox Pam

I too have an insane amount of spiders hanging out around my abode. Kinda of freaks me out to know that you are on the other side of the country and are as effected. Are they taking over the world? Take cover Arizona!

Or I might be a little paranoid. But seriously, they're EVERYWHERE.

Such cute chickens! Even your spiders are kinda cute, too.

I hope you have a wonderful trip!

I had not seen the journal yet. What is this boring. I can understand that you are afraid.
If it falls through, I feel very sorry for you.
