My mornings are now reminiscent of the classic 'Charlotte's Web.'
[1952/Written by E.B. White, Illustrations by Garth Williams/Publisher-Harper & Brothers (Wikipedia)] Her webbing is familiar to readers on a global scale.

Personally, I do not favor real live spiders spinning their webs at my kitchen sink. An unnamed spider is mysteriously webbing while I sleep. Upon awakening, I inadvertently put my hand and wrist into her webs when reaching to turn on the kitchen faucet.
Like a jungle trailblazer cutting away vines with a machete, I quickly wield my trusty sword. In reality, it's an old toothbrush. I have brushed aside white webbing for a couple of days. At first, it was fascinating to discover the ingenuity of the spider during its graveyard shift.
This morning, I pondered its persistence. My previous destruction of the annoying web did not deter its maker. Curiosity is now taking root. What will transpire during tonight's repose?
A determined spider may be back on the job.
"Can the papyrus grow up without a marsh? Can the reeds flourish without water? While it is yet green and not cut down, it withers before any other plant. So are the paths of all who forget God; and the hope of the hypocrite shall perish, whose confidence shall be cut off, and whose trust is a spider's web (Job 8:11-14 NKJ)."
