The Amazing Spiderwebbing Woman

“What do you do?”

“I have a blog.”


“Yes. Here’s my card.”

Everyday epistle?”

“It’s not what you think. I mean, it’s not a devotional per se.”

“What’s it about?”

That question strikes me dead in my tracks. What’s it about? What’s it about?

At a marriage conference once, I heard a speaker talk about a woman’s talent to “spiderweb” in conversations. How it can drive a man into circuit overload.

Spiderweb used as a verb. Very appropriate. Goes something like this:

I don’t like ice. Except when I take my child ice skating. We wear bike helmets to protect his sweet little noggin.

She shoots a gossamer thread.

He insists we both wear helmets to ride our bikes in the neighborhood. I like my bike. And I love my neighborhood.

Another thread. And another.

But not as much as I love the South. Although we’re moving to Kansas. I think I might like to be a cowgirl there. Blogging is a lot like being a cowgirl.

A dozen fine, silken strands fly out and connect the rings. 

I love blogging. Keeps me connected with some of my BFFs. I didn’t know what a BFF was before I joined Facebook.

Spinning, spinning.

I love Facebook. Sometimes I wonder if there’s unfinished business between me and people I friend. But life goes on and so do you. It’s like playing tennis.

She swings around the delicate starburst to the center, ready for the plunge.

I never learned to play tennis. And my son hasn’t learned to tie his shoes yet! You can learn most things in books. I love books and the library.

Going in for the kill.

I love music also, but sometimes I get the lyrics wrongMuzak is another story. One time I met Steven Curtis Chapman at the airport. He wouldn’t remember my name. Most people misspell it. Anyway, he’s so cool and very down-to-earth.

She drops down and…

Vanilla Ice is cool too, pun intended. He may be more down-to-earth now that he’s rehabbing houses on DIY. Yeah, Vanilla Ice is all right even though, as I said before, I don’t like ice.

You’re caught.

“So what’s your blog about?”

“It’s about a lot of things. You should probably just read it for yourself.”

Good idea.

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. Proverbs 31:25 NIV

Spider-Man and I would like to wish you a fun and happy Halloween!

  1. It’s a blog about everything and nothing at the same time. All depends on how much you care about Aimee. I’m just a tad closer to everything.

  2. Proverbs 31:25 is my life verse! I love it! And I love having a friend as spiderwebby as I can be too. It’s like therapy. :)

  3. Beth M. Solberg

    I’d never heard the term “spiderweb” for the way a woman thinks. Love it! Similar concept is in the marriage book titled , “Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti.” So true, so true!

  4. Pretty cute. I thought they were called ‘chasing rabbit trails/tails’? I wind up doing that all the time in long one on one conversations with friends.

    On an unrelated note, but tangential – since we’ll spin the web – to Halloween and a prior post on squirrels and pumpkins…

    So, we carved our pumpkin only to discover that one or more squirrels decided it made for good eats! I promise we were not trying to copy-cat you! I’ve got the photographic evidence on my blog!
