Strange spider

I caught another strange spider around the house...

Actually, Ernest is drying his cycling shoes after a ride in the rain yesterday. I learned last year that in a pinch you can stuff the shoes with newspaper -- it wicks up the water and you keep changing the paper. But these shoe dryers are a little easier.

Today the sun is shining and 3 out of 4 of us have the whole week off.


What's the whoo-hoo for you today?

I can't thank you enough for unintentionally reminding me that I need to order portable boot dryers for my husband. He has one for at home, but he travels most weeks and needs one like Ernest has here. Thank you so much!!

That really does look like a creepily strange spider!
We have shoe/boot dryer made out of PVC that stands up on a base with 2 long pipes sticking up for footwear (or gloves, I suppose). Those smaller ones look pretty great.

My husband usually swears by the newspaper trick, though. It does work! good thing, too, since there are more wet shoes at any one time than our single dryer can handle.... and the cat keeps hogging the warm vents on the floor. :)

:-) It really does look like a spider.

I did not have an ah-ha moment today. Maybe I'll get two tomorrow. :-)

We do newspapers here, too! That did look like a spider at first glance.
