I Spy: Week 52

It's the last I Spy post for 2021!!! I've so enjoyed linking up with Lysha at A Camera and A Cookbook for this series and I am thrilled that she is continuing it in 2022. Come back on Saturday for the first I Spy of 2022. And it's not too late to join in on the fun! You should link up too.

Even though this post is late, I took all these pictures in the last week of 2021. However, I hadn't seen the prompts so none of these pictures are intentionally taken for this post -- I just looked at what I had taken and made them fit the prompts. Enjoy!

Let's Play iSpy 2021


I was trying to capture the sparkly ornament but I love how you can see the "needles" on the one branch in the background. This is the one prompt I was surprised I actually had a picture for.

{Color: black}

It was really cold the week after Christmas (-30C/-22F without the wind chill) but Dave and I tried to get out for walks a few times anyways. You can clearly see the frost on his "black" scarf. And his eyebrows! If you haven't been in really cold weather, that is what happens when you go walking outside and breathe :)


It was "great" to spend so much time with my parents. The kids often cuddle up in Oma and Opa's chairs with them to read or play on screen or talk so I was happy to capture this moment.

{Starts with 'R'}

My dad has become quite the maker of "rollkuchen" -- a deep fried dough. I love to eat mine with corn syrup. It's not very sweet and we ate this for lunch one day. Yep, very healthy!!! I thought this would be a unique picture for "starts with 'r.'"

{Your Choice}

While only being home from the airport for ten minutes before going off to get boosted wasn't the original plan, doing everything I possibly can to keep myself and our world safe, will always be "my choice." (The pharmacy opened their vial of vaccine too early so asked me to come in an hour and a half early for my appointment.) 


  1. Yeah for being boosted! That fried dough looks amazing and I love the pic of the ornament :)

  2. That looks down right frigid!!! Congrats on an I Spy Year!

  3. Great job on getting boosted and the rollkuchen looks amazing!

  4. The snow on Dave's eyebrows!!! Never heard of Rollkuchen, very interesting!

  5. Mmmm I love fried dough in general so I think I'd really like this however I've never eaten anything with corn syrup! To me, corn syrup is an ingredient IN things, not a condiment, so I'm super intrigued!

  6. I don't think I have ever walked outside when it was cold enough to make frost on my eyebrows! What troopers. I love your start with "r" prompt; very original and it looks and sounds delicious.

  7. Great photos!! So glad you're continuing to join in on the fun. That's amazing pic of Dave in the cold. I can't imagine!


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 :)
