I would agree....the pic was actually scarier looking with that reflection than the actual critter!

Looks like a Wolf Spider. I have seen quite a few where I am working, these days.

I thought that was what it might be. I have seen big spiders around here that are a bit "chunkier", but around the same size, that I thought were also wolf spiders. This guy was pretty docile, though I did have some concern he might jump....thus the fuzzy image. Didn't want to get TOO close!

Here's a wolf spider I googled, it looks different:

you know, rock, very few people are aware that that wolf spiders are adrenaline junkies and love to ride zip lines when the humans go home.

I'm watching Cook's Country on PBS while I relax after 4 hours of cleaning the kitchen in my new (new to me) classroom. I'd rather be watching Hell's Kitchen but it's reruns tonight, but then so is Cook's Country. The teacher in the room last year must not believe in cleaning anything. The sink was covered in multi-colors of paint splatters and dirt. The stove had a layer of cooked on grease under a layer of dust. The cabinet drawers had a layer of grit from flaking paint and dirt in the bottom of each drawer and shelves too. The utensils in the drawer hadn't been properly washed before putting them away. Mixer beaters still had dried batter on them. Muffin pans had baked on crud. Apparently they put one pan to soak and left it long enough for it to rust. I washed everything down. The sink now shines. Drawers and shelves are clean with most having new shelf liners. Most dishes and utensils have been scrubbed clean. Still have skillets to clean, more shelves to clean & line and replace the foil covered, rusty drip pans on the stove burners. I'm tired. Tomorrow my stuff from my old classroom is supposed to be moved to the new. Then I get to start unpacking! First back-to-school meetings are August 13. Lots to do!

I have seen a couple in the last month. I moved a lot faster than they did.

Sheesh, Cindercat, a lot of work! I can't believe the summer has gone by so fast, and it's back to school so soon!
