blogGurdy the Spider

July 18, 2014

My new friend on the front porch.

Tonight, I came home and couldn’t get in. Not because I had locked my keys in my car and not because the lock was jammed. Instead, I couldn’t get in because a new friend was blocking my path up the porch step.

I almost got caught in her enormous web, but luckily I saw a small glimmer of it under the porch light before proceeding up the steps. Rather than being scared and knocking it out of my path, I sat and watched her spin her web. I named her Gertrude, Gurdy for short. Seeing how quickly and efficiently she was working, I couldn’t bear to dismantle her work. After reading up on that type of spider, I’m glad I didn’t harm her web. Instead, I look forward to her potentially coming back night after night, steadfastly constructing her web to delight on the plethora of moths and bugs that the porch provides.
