How Many Spiders?

Question: How many baby spiders does a momma spider have?

Answer: Waaay too many!

Yeah, tonight's drama involved lots of baby spiders emerging from behind the splashboard of my kitchen sink. I found them crawling in the sink, on the counter, and on the windowsill. The momma was on the ceiling.

Let's just say that this is another reason why the mixed brown, black, and white pattern of my granite counters is a real hindrance. It made it a LOT harder to find the spiders. Ugh! 

Note to self: If I'm ever in the market for countertops, go with white. White will be so much easier to spot spills and insects on.
