Just in time for Halloween, this lovely was crawling around the floor at work. Focus not so great. ID not so certain. Charlotte was a barn spider, Araneus cavaticus. The hairy striped legs look right. But it might be a garden orb spider, Araneus diadematus. That pattern on the body doesn't look quite right for either one.
At any rate, boo!
In other news, the kitchen is clean, including washing the very dirty and sticky floor!
I fooled around and tried some things and have a method figured out that really does take that paint residue off the trailer without too much trouble! That's a huge development. I'd tried several things and hadn't been satisfied with any of them.
I think it will be bed and a book very soon. The Thursday-Friday work marathon is about to begin.
