Cultu(red) Challenge Homework

Heyy Everyone,
So Hail Mary has a summer challenge going, and I decided to join. Check it out here. So she gave out homework, and when you think of homework it is automatically a negative thought, well for me at least. However Mary had eating an ice cream Sunday on her homework list, and I don't know about you, but that seemed like some pretty good homework to me. So I decided to give the homework and the Challenge a try.

Here are my 10 pictures of thing that I really like/ that appeal to me:
I have been playing around with my new camera, so some of the picture are better then others. I was having fun trying it out, while doing this homework. They look better when they are bigger.

I took this photo on vacation (is that cheating?) I am quite proud of it though.
Pretty flowers; there was a bee on them, and it would have been a really cool picture. Except the bee got mad when I tried to take the picture, and I didn't feel like risking getting stung.
My Grandmother has this tree in her backyard that has some sort of berry like fruit on it. Anyway every summer we pick them straight off the tree and eat them. They are quite good.
I have always wanted to take a picture of a tree while I was lying down looking up. I am very pleased with this picture, although it is slightly blurry. However that didn't stop me from making it my desk top back ground.
An unripe tomato 'cause hey why not right?

A candle stick, that makes me think of that poem: Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candle stick.
A really old pair of my skates. They are all scratched, but I still love them dearly. My old, first and only, pointe shoes. I went up on pointe, but because of my bad ankel I had to quit a year later, I then just did ballet (not on pointe) and then it got boring becuase I couldn't be in all the dances, so I quit.
My puppy!

My poem about anything:

So I typed it out and then printed it on blue paper and scanned it back onto my computer, because I wanted it to look like a tear. So you might have to click on it to read it. I know its not great, I have never been really good at poetry, but I wanted to try.

My Ice cream Sunday:

So I didn't have chocolate sauce or smarties, but I did make homemade strawberry sauce, and I'm betting it was just as good.

My very yummy smelling body wash:

I get bored of the same body wash all the time, so I have many different ones that I buy from the Body Shop when ever they are on sale. I just started using one like this but it is the cranberry scent, its from their Christmas line. Shhh...

So I have been trying to run at least three times a week all summer, but it hasn't happened yet. I'm lucky if I run once a week. So I don't know if that can really count as completing my homework. I did however map out a route at MapMyRun.com check it out, its a pretty cool site, with some great features, I used it a lot when I did Track during the school year.

Another piece of homework was to comment on others blogs, which I have been doing.

Anyway now that I finished my homework, I am going to go and sit outside and enjoy some of the sunshine, I might even eat another one of those Sundays (Can you tell that I love ice cream.)

Enjoy the beautiful sunshine,


    I love it I love it I love it!!!!! My fave is your ballet slipper, and the vacation photo (not cheating!) and stop underrating yourself because your poem seriously made me want to hug you and tell you it'll all be okay... and maybe get hugged myself. I love love love that you eat sundaes like I do (frequently!) and just YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. You took what I started and made it so much better.

    I posted the first part of summer school but I'll post the second part, the homework response part tomorrow (today?) in the evening and I'll feature your blog so people can respond! Sooo neat!

    Lovely :)
