I Spy: A

**(IWSG post below)

Welcome to the I Spy...from A-Z game!

A big part of this I Spy game is to have fun but to also go beyond the obvious. To do that, I'm not limiting this game to just the names of things. Which means, if I post an image that evokes a feeling, or mood that leads you to something else, that reminds you of yet another word, and that word happens to start with the letter for that day, then let me know in the comments. Also, if you speak another language and find a word that fits for that day, you can use it too! Just make sure to add the translation for the rest of us. (Thanks for the idea Jo. :) )

So now, without further ado.....

I spy with my little eye things that begin with the letter... 


Ok, so I may have started this off a little strong...


I can't wait to see what you all come up with and thank you all for playing along. 

Happy A - Zing! :)


And now for IWSG! 

My biggest insecurity right now is one I have trouble with all the time...... TIME! I'm going through a HUGE TIME crunch. Today is crazy, tomorrow will be crazy, heck the whole month of April is going to be CRAZY and I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR CRAZY!  So yeah, I'm feeling frazzled and it's only April first, the first day of A-Z AND I still haven't gotten all my posts put together......And, is also April's Fish Day in France! So if some crazy French person sticks a picture of a fish on your back, try not to punch them in the face (sorry for the tangent).

So that's it for today, I am on the negative time scale right now and it looks like I'm stuck here until September. I know this is something a lot of people have trouble with (we should make a t-shirt) and I'm struggling to find quality time to write....the key word being 'quality.' 

Ok, hope you all are forging ahead, I'll just sit in the corner and cry some more..... wait, I don't have TIME TO CRY!   :P   


  1. Ok, I'll start..... Apple!
    (Yeah, I know...lame, but it had to be done. ;) )
    I'll post the rest of my A words in my next post for B.

  2. Alluring artwork and mini-Alex?
    Happy A-Day!
    have fun with the kiddies!

  3. You crushed the Flash!
    I like Michelle's answer.
    What's with the fish?
    May our April be manageable-crazy...

  4. Hi Elise - Art prevails, but mini Alex, or Alex rules! I can't fathom the fish - unless tis an Angel fish .. and the last one is a big ? in my head ..

    Happy Easter and as Alex says have a great time with the family and kids - cheers Hilary

  5. Art it will have to be, I was going to say Avengers but you mixed up Marvel and DC, oh the shame lol

  6. Yo Fish lady :)

    All right then... the first thing that popped into my head that begun with the letter A was..... "A kronenbourg!" (spelling may be off, but I remember drinking many a happy 1664 when I worked for EuroMisery :)

    Here's to finding the time and to making it to Z together :)

  7. Having enough time - what is that?

    I wish my plants looked that healthy.

  8. The first picture with the Hulk had me thinking angry... but art for the rest.

  9. Um, Avengers? No, there are some DC characters in there. Art? Wow, this was a hard one.

    Good luck with the 2015 A to Z Challenge!

  10. I love your spider plant! I've had mine, Kalanit, for coming up on 15 years. It's been awhile since she's produce a little white flower, but she still produces new plantlets every so often. Once the weather is warmer, I can put her back in the window and she can get more sunlight to grow.

  11. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to save Time in a Bottle, like in that song?

  12. LOL. I feel very challenged. Art? An Apple...duh....

  13. Okay, so your first image conjured the word adventure in my brain, while your last image made me think of asparagus. #shrugs You asked. LOL

  14. April Fish Day -sounds fun. Sort of. Good luck with the challenge, time pressures and all of that

  15. Action figures, asp, apples, art. Ça va?

  16. Yay, I was looking forward to this. I got action figures and art, but I'm totally stumped on the rest. Hm...

  17. I know all about the time crunch. If only I didn't need to sleep! Ooh, your theme is so much fun. :) I'm going with Artistic. Lovely art and even the plant looks artfully arrange. The action figures, well, superheros are comic art.

  18. Replies
    1. LOL! I hadn't thaught of that one, but it works!

  19. The time thing has always been an issue for me too! Plus, I'm a total procrastinator and in writing, when you have no agent or publisher, there are no deadlines. Basically that means I'm toast.

  20. Thanks for stopping in and playing along today, everyone! :)

  21. LOL, this is super cute and fun! I hope you get some time back. If only we could buy it, ya know?

  22. I guess...action figures, aboriginal, artwork, a-plant.
