I Spy: Week 28

It's been a bit of a week. Not in a bad way, mind you, just in a "I didn't get my usual Saturday post written until yesterday" kind of way. As always, I'm linking up with Lysha at A Camera and A Cookbook for her I Spy Challenge. The challenge for me this coming week is to get my post done for Saturday. Hahaha! Also, I struggled with some of the prompts this week, so bear with me :)

Let's Play iSpy 2021


Last week the kids were able to attend a small, in person, VBS (Vacation Bible School) at our church. Thus, a lot of my pictures come from that. It was a really small group so I was able to run errands, blog, or sit and read while the kids participated. It was heavenly. Rachel enjoyed making me this painting on a piece of paper towel, which was "torn" from the roll.


It's not officially "newsprint" but this fake stuff sure makes the fish and chips seem more authentic. This is from a food truck date Dave and I had on Friday night. And it made me want fish and chips from England which are actually still served in real newsprint.


One of the VBS projects was to make mandalas out of objects from nature. I missed getting a picture of this on the day it was made but I loved how pieces of nature "connected" to make a beautiful piece of art.


One morning the kids made prayer flags. I loved how the hung flags "curved" through the trees. (This may be one of the prompts I struggled with!)

{your choice}


I did my own #24in48 readathon this past weekend. It's the readathon where you try to read for 24 hours in a 48 hour period. The official readathon isn't being held this summer, so I did my own. This was the final stack of books I read. I will be writing a post for tomorrow (I hope) with my thoughts on these books.


  1. Look forward to your book thoughts! I also like the fake newsprint for the fish and chips!

  2. I like you did that readathon! I need to plan a weekend to do that same :)

  3. I love fish and chips on paper - so authentic!

  4. Woohoo, love that fake newsprint (and the fish & chips); you had a good week with the prompts. I'm reading JD Robb at the mo too - I think I do a readathon all winter!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
