Our barn is ready for Halloween.

Cobwebs cling to the metal sides, the rafters, a recently-cleaned halter.

Maybe I should make a Haunted Barn sign and charge admission.

But I don't.

Instead, I begin the Cobweb Eradication Program.

Each day, I tackle a section of the barn. Grabbing a broom, sometimes two, I climb a ladder and begin at the roof line and work my way down, sweeping and knocking down cobwebs. I remove items from shelves and marvel at the dust and dirt.

And I look behind me... to see if the spiders are building again.


  1. Yeah it's time for my bi-yearly cobweb removal too. I use the shop vac so as not to leave to many spiders left to make more behind my back!

    1. Yeah, the shop vac is coming out this weekend!
