I Spy - Fan(s)


(sung to, If You're Happy And You Know It)
If you're hot and you know it, clap your hands
If you're sweating and you know it, clap your hands
If you're miserable and you know it
then your face will surely show it
If you're hot, sweaty and miserable, clap your hands.
(clapping wildly)

What a great week for our I Spy prompt to be Fans.  It has been over 100 degrees and this old body is boycotting the outdoors.  It's true.  I've been finding the nearest register, positioning myself over it, letting the cool air travel up my body.  Oops, was that too much of a visual for you.  So Sorry.  NOT

Please join in with Christy's Mad Mind and myself.  Here are the rules, for all of you that just can't remember.  Grab your camera, take a photo of the 2 prompts we give you.  This week is FAN(S) and YOUR CHOICE.  Really, it's like only having one prompt and the other is a "show off anything you want" prompt.  How much easier could it get?  

Enough of my babble.  On with the show.


This is one of the fans we have hanging in our house.  Honestly, I could not sleep right now at night if I didn't have a fan above the bed.  Yes, even with the air conditioning going.

How many of you remember being little and making a fan out of paper?  I used to make these all of the time with the programs at church.  Question, why do churches always seem so hot?   

How about a different type of fan?  This photo is one I took when my good friend Machaelle and I went to see Josh Groban last summer.  See all his "fans".  See how far up one of his biggest fans, me, was in the arena.  Yeah, nosebleed section.

Last Saturday was my birthday.   I have to say, this was one of my BEST, BIRTHDAYS, EVER!!!!  You are about to see why.

My daughter made me her homemade Strawberry Cheese Cake.  Rich and creamy and  all mine.   This is one of my top three favorite desserts.

Sunday we had our family get together.  My daughter-in-law Lizzie made me homemade Eclairs.  You read that right, homemade!!!  Also in the top three favorite desserts.  

Being the nice, wonderful, mother and grandmother I am.  I didn't hide them from others and actually let them help me eat both desserts.  It was a sacrifice, but I knuckled under and let them go.  **tear, tear**

I guess you could say, I'm a huge FAN of those desserts.  Oh, I so think outside of the box.
