A few minutes ago, a big, ugly spider appeared on the outside of my window. I thought it might be getting ready to build a web there, and then I'd be able to watch some arachnid predation up close, but it has gone now. Maybe it got a look at me and was frightened off by the big, ugly primate.
The heat has me feeling even more slothful than usual. The outdoors is cooling off nicely. I'm going to go sit under the mulberry tree and listen to the evening birds chirp their last songs.
