My First Blog Article

The Week Gone By (12th-18th September 2022)

As planned, I am writing about the first week since I started my blog.
As I sit back and write about it, I feel a sense of joy and satisfaction. There are quite a few things that I managed to do this week, and I’m excited to share them with you!

So, here are the top 5 highlights of last week!

1. Completed Reading a Book

I finished the book I picked up to read last week. This book, meant for children between 10-14 years of age, is an emotional journey of a boy seeking the truth about his father. The book’s title is ‘ A medal for Leroy,’ authored by the master storyteller Michael Morpurgo.

I have been reading Michael Morpurgo’s books for years, and each book has a compelling message that gets you thinking. I will soon share my reviews of his other works. But for now, I have written a small article about this book. So, if you are an avid reader or want to get a thought-provoking book for your child, do read my post about this book. If you have already read the book, do share your key learnings with me in the comments.

2. Penned Down a Recipe

The second exciting thing I did last week was I penned down Indian recipes. The recipe is that of ‘Tamarind rice’- a tangy rice dish very popular in south India. I have also written about the origin and roots of this food, which some of my readers may find interesting. All food lovers, please read my post about Tamarind Rice here and let me know how you make it in your home. If you are new to these recipes, give them a try and let me know the outcome in the comments.

3. Created a German Learning Practice Sheet

Most of my readers know that I started learning German a year back, and I am quite an enthusiastic learner! So, this week, the learning method I applied was ‘reading.’ I read an article from the newspaper and managed to create a worksheet, which I have posted here. Those of my readers who are learning German may find this helpful. Feel free to download the worksheet and use it for your reading and writing practice. And needless to say, do let me know if you found it useful. If you have any suggestions for improvisation, please share.

4. Captured some Lovely Pictures

Last week, I also looked back and pulled out some lovely clicks of Park Rosenhohe, Darmstadt- a park most famous for its beautiful roses that bloom between June and September every year. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of this park and managed to capture some photos. Trust me. It’s a treat for the eyes. So, click here and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. 

5. Visited a New Place in My City

Sometimes, I feel that when we live in a place, we take its nearby parks, monuments, and historical structures for granted and don’t pay much attention to them as much as we would to something similar, say in a holiday destination. But, visiting and learning about them gives us great insights into the city – its culture and history. Going by that thought, I have created a ‘ Darmstadt-in and around‘ page, where my readers can read about Darmstadt-the beautiful city in Germany where I live.

Last week, I visited a park near my house named ‘ Herrngarten. ‘ Herrngarten is one of the oldest parks in Darmstadt, Germany, located right at the heart of Darmstadt. I researched its history, which helped me understand the sculptures and monuments in this historic garden. Then I penned down all my learnings in an article. Click here to read the article about Herrngarten. My readers living in and around Darmstadt may find it interesting.

So, that is the update from my end about the week gone by. Happy Reading!
