All God's Creatures Gotta Place.... just, please, not in my kitchen!

I came home late on Friday  night to find a new room mate.  It was late and I was tired.  I was not prepared to deal with this new addition to our apartment.  I thought about just leaving him (or her) until the morning, perhaps with a little sign pointing him (or her) out to my unknowing room mates (the photos don't do the spider's web justice - he/she had made an absolute palace out of the cookie sheet and the dish towel).  However, I was feeling squirmy thinking of my little friend chilling out over night on the top of my stove.  Nope, I had to take care of the problem tonight.  No squatters allowed!!  So, my little friend and I came to a compromise, I let him/her live and he/she found a new residence in the back yard.  
Needless to say, the stove top is now cleaner.  And, I think all of us in the apartment will think twice before we leave out a pan or dish towel for an extended period of time on our kitchen counter.  
Blech, I still get creeped out looking at the pictures!!

Those pesky little critters always seem to sneak up on you when you aren't expecting them.

I was glad to find your blog courtesy of your comment on Meredith's blog. I'm glad to hear that you're doing so well. If you ever want to come down to DC for a weekend or something, drop me a line.
