After we removed the Christmas tree we were finally able to move our breakfast-lunch-formal-informal table back in the bay window area. Prior to that I lifted the tree rug that covered the central space and noticed this which falls directly below the single leg stand of our table:
Hubby calls these little finds "spider spit." I think that is not a scientific or technical term. But if you live in the woods you will find these spider droppings beneath your window ledges, under your cabinet toe stops and behind those doors that you leave open most of the time. They usually have delicate webs hanging above them and my grandson is the first to notice these when he visits and he is crawling around looking for some small toy that has rolled behind or under something. It looks like I never clean house, which I do and often. Some look like little beads and others like what they actually are! But I will tell you that NASA is missing a phenomenal chemistry here. These are harder than rocks and hang tighter than super clue to wherever they land.
Do you have spider spit?
