I just saw a muslim family (mother, father, child in carriage, ambulatory child). one of the children was crying over a lost balloon, which I caught. it was a normal air-filled party-balloon on a stick; I think those shaped, shiny helium-balloons are illegal now.
additionally, earlier today I walked into a hanging spider and got it off my clothes into a small glass. when I tried to drop it off where we used to have flies (I haven't seen many lately), it had spun a small web in the glass, so I left the glass there instead. the type of spider looks like a tiny, grey, scaly tarantula, and they're known for not making permanent webs; it was gone when I checked the glass later and I couldn't see the web either.
