Photos of the Month: June 2022

 Since I'm taking a mini blogging break and only posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays this summer I decided to compile all my I Spy Photo challenge photos into one long post.  I did take each of the photos for each week's challenge within that week (though many were taken with my camera or my very old point and shoot!)

Week of May 28th- June 4th

– Window View – Quarterly



– Happy- Seeing these new flowers I planted in bloom makes me happy



– Near By-- We love having the lake near by



– Loud



– Your Choice



Week of June 4th- 11th

– Weather – Quarterly

Sunny with lots and lots of pollen (that's what all the yellow is floating on the water near shore)


– Sharpen-- Alec got a chance to sharpen his skills at his first ever karate tournament



– By accident-- We stumbled upon this wind sculpture by accident while shopping at the outlet mall.





– Starts with N-- We went hiking in New Hampshire; New Hampshire starts with N



– Your Choice



Week of June 11th- 18th

– Front Yard – Quarterly



– Spicy-- Bold Chex mix is as spicy as I get.



– Inside-- a peek inside our hotel suite



– Textured-- I put a textured background on some of the father's day cards I made



– Your Choice


Week of June 18th-25th

– Event-- We bought a new car!




– Outfit – Quarterly




– Played- I played around with my colorstreet nail wraps this week; combining 2 different kits 





– Starts with U-- My Uncle came to visit; the first time he's seen my boys in 6 years and he could not get over how much they've all grown. 




– Choose Anything – Monthly


June 25th- July 2nd

– sparkle- The sparkle of my nails contrasts with the smooth creamy ice cream treat.




– wet -- A fun way to cool off and get a little wet.

    1. Thank you! It feels so much sportier than my Traverses I've owned in the past. Time to size down now that the kids are older and I am loving it.

    1. They are still just eggs as of yesterday but I'm waiting for the day I hear little chirping sounds... though I'm pretty sure the plant will die at that point since I wont be able to move it for watering anymore after that.

  6. What a great assortment of pictures! Those bird eggs are really interesting! I don't think I've ever seen any that color before. That ice cream dessert looks delicious. And what a fun nail color!

    1. We had never seen bird eggs that color before either! The ice cream was amazing and really hit the spot on a hot summer day.

  9. What a fun collage of photos. I love when you accidentally find cool things like that wind sculpture. That's why we sometimes try a different path to where we are going.

  16. Joanne I'm glad to read that you are going to join in with the SPSH. I really like your rose (photo & the plant). It looks like a David Austin variety. I'm envious of the waterfall find in your hike in New Hampshire. In regards to your last post, I hear you about trying to find a balance with blogging, working & life in general.

    1. I try to seek out as many waterfall hikes as I can whenever we go hiking. Those are my favorites.

  19. As always, fab photos. Love the nest one specially, hope the hatch is successful. Congratulations on your new car.

    1. So far two have hatched (I hope; there are only 2 eggs left in the nest and I can't imaging a predator getting to them where they are hanging).

  20. Hope to get my iSpy post out tonight. I just can't keep up with things anymore. Is it Covid brain? Old age? Laziness??
    Your photographs are always delightful. Those tiny eggs!! We had 2 hummingbird eggs in a nest in our magnolia. Such fun to watch until the babies hatched, outgrew the nest and flew away.

    That banana bread looks so moist. I can almost taste it!! Need to make some or zucchini bread, which PC loves equally well.

    Enjoyed your cards but forgot to mention them in an earlier post. Glad to see the Father's Day card here for the texture prompt. Is that like corrugated card stock? Perfect for representing grass. And love the sandy looking paper you used, too.

    Hope your Disney plans are about finalized. The boys were so small in the pictures you shared of your previous trip. You guys are going to have a blast.

    1. I am feeling quite lazy myself lately in all things-- photography using my real cameras, cleaning the house, blogging, etc!

      I LOVE zucchini bread and haven't made any in so long... maybe I should whip some up for our vacation. That would be so yummy for breakfast.

      To make the texture on the Father's day cards I ran regular stock through my Big Shot using a texture folder.
