I swear, I have been staring at this post for days completely and utterly unable to come up with anything funny or remotely interesting to blab about.
So instead, I'll tell you something random.
How this was discovered, I cannot imagine but, apparently, spiders hate peppermint.
So, if you've got a spider problem or they just give you the heeby geebies, put some water and a few drops of peppermint oil in one of those little spray bottle thingies and mist around doors and windows. Super easy and so much more pleasant than bug spray : )
p.s., I'm in the middle of Book 7 of Harry Potter and it's making me want to faster and slower at the same time, bah!
