Photos of the week: October 29th

 Oh boy did I struggle with this week's prompts for the I Spy photography challenge!  We had a really miserable, rainy week and I don't think I got out of the house at all so that just added to my challenge as I'm not usually motivated to take photos around the house.  


– scary-- Our hike on Friday was a bit scary; it was steep and the rocks and leaves were slippery with all the rain we've been having



– mend-- I've been meaning to mend this yo-yo blanket that my great grandmother made. 



– starts with G-- A bowl of grapes.


– spiral-- We topped the chocolate cake we made this week with chocolate spirals. 



– your choice

    1. Thanks! I have two completely different quilts that she made for me and I try to hardly ever use them because I am so afraid of ruining them.

  4. What fun prompts. You did well with them. That bit of your hike does look scary and I love the photo of the chocolate spirals. At first glance I thought they were wood shavings x

  6. Oh yum the shot of the top of the cake is making me hungry!

    Even if you didn't get out much you did get some lovely photos of autumn with the hike and by the lake! I like seeing the leaves change colour, we don't really get that for autumn here in Brisbane!

    Hope that you had a great weekend :) We had a busy but fun long weekend!

  8. That quilt is beautiful. My great-grandmother was a quilter as well, and my parents have so many treasures from her.

    1. I have another one that she made special just for me all pink and white with little teddy bears and I just treasure them both.

  9. You found some great photo opportunities for the prompts, can't tell you were struggling! Slippery hikes really are scary. Early last spring we decided to do a spring hike, but there was still snow on the ground and we only hiked for a short distance because it was so slippery! Won't do that again!

    1. We went hiking one spring and when I slipped on the slushy snow I actually managed to pull a muscle in my lower back.

  13. I think you did well with the challenge. I am a bit scared on rocky slippery hiking paths these days. If I know it is going to be like that I take my hiking poles, which can be a bit of a hinderance when trying to take photos. Enjoy your week, stay safe and thank you for visiting my blog this week.
