some winters there are more stink/squash bugs.
sometimes there are more of the asian lady bugs.
Mom and i have agreed that box elder bugs are much nicer than the other two.
a few flies, pillbugs and spiders are also in residence at times. i don't mind the jumping spiders or the pillbugs. they don't get in food (or at least they haven't yet :) ) or cause other issues. the house spiders are wispy and fine almost invisible to see. i don't much mind them either as they will capture and eat the other bugs if they can. jumping spiders and the larger hunting tunnel web spiders i'll put back outside in the warmer season. i don't find them too often the rest of the season.
today is cold, sunny and had a beautiful sunrise and early morning. managed to get a few bean pictures i find more acceptable than others i've taken recently.
mid-winter chores are actually getting done for a change. shredded a lot of old papers (which means i actually went through them finally so i could shred them). more to go, i've filled up a bucket and a half (6 gallon buckets, well compressed) so far. the worms will be happy in time when those get put in the worm farm or used outside.
i've finally started actually picking hardware bits for a newer computer. which is the first time i've committed myself to making a choice in this matter. i've been dithering way too long on this... prices and performance are finally getting what i want into my zone. :)
what are you up to in the mid-winter while waiting for it to warm up outside?
and there's another bug on the window...
