I have been a follower of Ashley's blog for a few months now. The Scavenger Hunt Sunday has always fascinated me. Bloggers post some of the best pictures and I cannot help but be in awe of the talent that is out there. So, I decided to give it a shot this week and I must say it was one of the best challenges. My mind was constantly thinking of what to capture.
This is from an archive. A few weeks ago, I baked Cherry Rum pudding which called for dark chocolate. The chocolate we get in Deutschland is to die for, also one of the major factors for my constant weight gain..;) Well, nobody told me how hard it is to cut a thick slab of chocolate. Half way through, the broken pieces looked good, so here is what I captured.
This was the most challenging one. Honestly, I did not know what to capture,but when my daughter walked in from school on Friday with her half yearly report, I knew I had my numbers. Schools here have a strange way of grading the students. They use numbers. They are not ranks but tell you how your child has fared. 1 stands for Excellent, 2 for Very Good, 3 for Good. Its strange how children here get obsessed with these numbers. I see it in my children and all they want is a 1 or 2. Our girlie has got a good mix and we are very pleased.
3. CANNED FOOD
Its strange how expat life leads you to eat some of your favorite fruit in the canned form. Mangos, Litchis, Pineapple....In Germany, they taste better from the can than fresh. In India, we would never dream of eating canned fruit. Some of these fruits grow in our back yard...:D This week, for breakfast, we opened this tin of pineapple. This last piece was waiting for me, when suddenly I remembered the challenge...:)
We are slowly beginning to see books in the German language in our home. It is amazing how the kids have picked up a new language. When we enrolled them to the library last year, all they wanted was to go to the English section. They never even glanced towards the Deutsch books. Without any force, they have begun to slowly bring books which interest them and are reading at a slow pace. This makes me very proud.
