Spiders and Slugs

Future house guests, consider yourselves forewarned.  Spiders do try to make their home in our house and our spiders are not small.  For reference, I wear a size 6 women's shoe - my shoes are not boats.  This spider is big.  I wish I could say this is an anomaly, but about once a week, we find one of these guys.

I'm not a fan of these spiders, they creep me out.  If Kyle is home, I make him dispose of them.  As he had already left this morning, the job fell to me.  I do like nature, but not in my house.  I'm not the kind of person who captures and releases.  This guy is history.

On the other hand, I see lots of slugs on my walk and they don't bother me at all.  This guy is on the larger side of what I normally see, but his size isn't overly shocking.  As it is nice and damp here most of the time, the slugs are quite healthy and ubiquitous.  These guys stay outside like they are supposed to.  I spot several of them on my daily walks.  They leave me alone and so I leave them alone.

I like that arrangement.  If the spiders would do the same, I'd be happy.
