It's like living at Girl Scout camp...

This weekend I made the observation that living on our farm is like living at Girl Scout camp all year 'round.

When I was a scout, they told us to shake out our shoes and our bedroll before getting in them to make sure there were no scorpions or other nasties in there.

Lately I have had to shake out my towel every morning to make sure there are no spiders hiding. It seems spiders love our bathroom and a hanging towel makes an attractive bed, I guess. I am either killing, or on generous days relocating, a couple spiders a week. [[shudder]]

But unlike GS camp, at least I am not having to gather firewood before making dinner. So, you know, there's that.
