I Spy: Week 31

Oh look, I'm actually managing to get my I Spy posted on a Saturday for once. Go me :) As always, I'm linking up with Lysha at A Camera and A Cookbook. And in case you're popping in just for this post, we're currently on vacation at my parents' house in Saskatchewan, so this is a vacation "I Spy."

Let's Play iSpy 2021


Currently, "bliss" is defined as enjoying happy hour on the deck in my parents' yard. They have all sorts of beautiful flowers and I love sitting and watching the birds and visiting.

{two of a kind}

Sam and Rachel get their own happy hour drinks and they enjoy drinking them at the island and laughing at my dad. They really are "two of a kind"!

{starts with B}

For those of you who have been around for at least a year, and have a really good memory, you may remember that my parents are hosting a bee farmer's hives. So I enjoy seeing bees on the flowers, gathering pollen. And clearly this "starts with 'b.'" (Also, discuss below -- what is the proper placement of the period in that last sentence??? I don't think I'm right.)


This may not look like much but this is the "beginnings" of homemade ice cream! I think we're making it in my grandparents' 100 year old ice cream maker later this afternoon.

{your choice}


When I'm sitting on the deck, I love watching the hummingbirds at the feeders. You can see the hummingbird at the top right of the feeder in this picture. It is very hard to get a good picture of a hummingbird!

So that is what I spied this week. It's been a fun week!!!


  1. So much fun in these! I hope the ice cream turned out great!

  2. Love seeing the highlights of your fun times here! Such fun and cute pictures.

  3. What fun! Looks like you're enjoying a wonderful vacation!

    I also second guess myself with punctuation dilemmas like yours with the period and the quotation marks. I think with this one it doesn't much matter, but technically I think the period would go outside the quotation marks in this case. (I'm getting in English teacher mode for the start of school soon!)

  4. What fun vacation photos! I bet that ice cream tastes amazing! And as far as I know you used the period right in that last sentence; it's supposed to go inside the quotation marks when it's the end of a sentence.

  5. A nice selection to show off your week... loving those bees. Yes, the period comes after the quotation marks.

  6. That drink looks delicious! Love seeing everyone's interpretation of 2 of a kind.


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 :)
