Picture my Week

An overcast sky was perfect on the afternoon we headed to the pool. Buddy doesn't mind spending his time lapping the pool instead of playing in the water. He wants nothing to do with actually getting wet.
 
 
Wrapping up our Delaware state studies with the states burger and milkshake was a fun way to end a week. The burger was ..... interesting. Not sure we would ever make it quite like this again, but it was okay having it once.
 
 
What do you do when family visits? Go to the hiking/biking trail here by our house. The tunnel remains delightfully cool even in this heat. I may just have to drag a chair back there and camp out during the day.
 
 
Looking out over the mountains at the other end of the tunnel, the view is still nice even when choked in the hazy, high humidity air of deep summer.

 
We can't see sunsets from our house, but when even the eastern sky is colorful you know that the sunset must have been pretty spectacular.
 
 
 
This next picture is not for the faint of heart. Proceed with caution.

Shudder!! This creepy spider showed up. Her huge body is actually hundreds of baby spiders. More violent shuddering.

  3. We can't see sunrises with our house on the west side of a hill, haha! Looks like you "missed" a beauty of a sunset.
    My husband keeps saying this is the year of the spider - he's right. It's been a rough summer for me. One more reason to like winter!!!

    The view from the end of the tunnel and that sunset are absolutely breathtaking!

  6. What is on the hamburger? I am not a fan of spiders but how cool was that? You don't get to see a momma spider everyday! 😊 Thanks for sharing!

  7. I have a healthy respect for snakes, but spiders don't bother me at all. The wonder of that spider is that she will give her life for her babies; they will literally suck the life from her body. God does some pretty remarkable things.

    Is that a slice of beet-root on that sandwich? We used to eat roasted beet-root sandwiches (without the meat) during WWII. On good homemade whole wheat or multigrain bread they are really tasty.

  8. The pool looks refreshing, the tunnel intriguing, the mountains gorgeous.
    The spider? Makes me want to throw up. Kill it! Kill it with fire!!!

    (not really, but I'd be getting far, far away from it, FAST) :D

  9. We were once hiking in one of the old coal mining areas of West Virginia, where one of the local sights is an old mine entrance where cool air blows out regularly.

    My daughter and I sent husband and son on to hike some more, and waited for them in front of the natural AC.

  10. Great pictures! Your tunenel pics always intrigue me. No tunnels around here but we do have some caves. Always cooler in a cave, though I have not been in one in ages. I prefer the pool... the new one that is finally swimmer ready! No cement yet, but we plastic cloth our way to the steps! Such a beautiful view from the other side of the mountain, even if it is hot and humid. That sunset color in the east is amazing! I don't think I've ever seen one so bright! The spider? You can keep her!
