I recently moved some of my cards around between the two accounts that I play on Steem Monsters. My main account is now solely focused on the Fire, Life, and Death splinters, while my wife's account is focused on Water and Earth.
This has made daily quests a bit difficult when the splinters I am focused on aren't one of my choices. There have been several days in a row that I haven't been able to do any daily quests with my wife's account because neither Water nor Earth were one of my options.
Today was one of those days so I had the whole morning to focus on my main account and trying to get five wins with the Fire splinter. Let me tell you, it was a long frustrating morning. The competition in the Silver tier seems to be fierce right now. There are many days I find myself finishing at a lower rank than I started.
It was all worth it today when I hovered over my cards and saw the yellow outline around that last one. I knew I was getting a Legendary, "but which one?". I was really happy when it turned out to be the Sacred Unicorn. It wasn't enough to help me level my existing card up, but it put me one step closer to a level 4.
All of that being said, I am seriously thinking about transferring my Water deck back over to my main account and delegating those cards out to a service like Heron's to earn some DEC. I know there are players out there that are much better at the strategy than me and they would probably do a better job at maximizing my rewards.
The thing that is holding me back is the chance of winning cards. I am not sure I want to give up the ability to collect new cards at the expense of earning more DEC. I just don't know how all of that works. Do I still get the end of season reward cards? I know @exyle (I just tagged him twice in two days). has been using Heron's and has been very happy with it.
Please give me some input and advice if you are familiar with the service!
If you are afraid of spiders, you might want to skip this next part.
A while ago I was out on my deck and I noticed this spider web on our pergola.
My wife isn't a fan of spiders, so I hesitantly knocked it down. I really didn't want to because to me it was a pretty magnificent work of art. Imagine my surprise when we went out the next day and I saw this:
That busy little spider had recreated the whole web over night. I was pretty impressed. As I was sitting admiring the work, I noticed something on one of the pergola legs:
I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure this was the dedicated little fella that put in all the work the night before. @mrsbozz wasn't around so I happily let the spider go about it's business and live to fight another day.
A couple of weeks later I was out trying to power wash our deck and as I was reaching to connect the house to the outdoor spigot, I noticed this:
I initially jumped back in shock because I wasn't really ready for what I just saw. I also have to admit that the spider was probably the size of a Quarter so that was pretty scary too! Sadly, this one was in my way and something had to be done about it. I used a stick to knock it down and then I dispatched of the spider.
I feel kind of bad because we do tend to have a lot of mosquitoes at times, and this guy had probably eaten its fill of them over the Summer. In my opinion though, there is such a thing as a too big spider and this one just had to go.
That's it from me, have a great weekend everyone!
