Thankful Thursday: Blogger’s edition #1

It’s Thursday! And this is the Thursday that I’m going to start showing my appreciation for the blogs that I follow like I said I wanted to do last month. To recap: I wrote down all of the names of the blogs that I follow on pieces of paper, put them into a bag, shake it up and had my sister choose. 

So today, I’m grateful for…

Pop in for a visit at

I just caught up with Akhila over on Words and Notion. I’m guilty of not keeping up with her blog for the Reader is kind of messed up and all the blogs I follow doesn’t always show up. 

Akhila is a Quality Assurance professional and she makes words dance off the page with her thought-provoking poems. I find her Psychic Science posts intriguing and her Female Behavior series convincing.

Post Alert!| I am not always right

She sometimes features posts in her native Malayalam, a language I which I can understand! She has a book out now and it’s available on Amazon.

I have some more catching up to do, but I am thankful for this blog.

I spend Monday-Fridays working 8-4 in the library. It has its ups and downs like any other job, but it’s what I’ve wanted to do ever since I was little, so I am utmost grateful to God.

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?

Yes. A few. They were given to me by my sisters over the years and I just can’t find it within my heart to get rid of them.

50 Foods #13: Garum

Origin: The Roman Empire
Date: c. 4th century BCE to 5th century CE
Type: Fermented fish sauce

According to this chapter, garum was made from the parts that remained after fish had been salted and barreled. This fermented fish sauce was Roman’s obsession. Maybe it changed the course of history, but not too many people know about garum aka Ancient Rome ketchup. Although garum is considered to be originated in the Roman Empire, it was said to be enjoyed by the Greeks earlier. 

Last year, I read that Spain is bringing the sauce back from the ancient dead.

Would I eat it?: I won’t be using this anytime soon!
