Sharing My World 2016 Week 47

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World. This one is a “grateful for” special in honour of the USA’sย Thanksgiving Day. Cee’s recommends a few words representing the first thing which comes to mind.


Your home life?

No, this “first thing which comes to mind” isn’t going to work. I’ll try again.

Relaxed, mainly stress-free. I love that after all these years I finally own a little house.

Your family?
My immediate family live nearby and we’ll all be seeing each other at Christmas!

Your blogging community?
They’re such a lovely bunch, reading all my stuff and producing quality works for me to read ๐Ÿ™‚

Your city or immediate area in which you live?
It’s a nice quiet little village and I’m far enough from the main road that I don’t get any traffic noise. I’m grateful for the peace and quiet.

The regional area in which you live?
I’ve published many many pictures of the lovely area I live in. Let me find another one. Or two.

St Michael's Mount 6



The country where you live?
It’s free, democratic and there’s enough to go round. Not that everyone gets enough sadly.

Me! I’m reasonably healthy and content ๐Ÿ™‚

    You don’t have much if anything to complain about, Ali. Those are beautiful locations. I’ve seen pictures of your house and it’s perfect for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ — Suzanne

      No, I don’t ๐Ÿ™‚
      My house is just the right size for me.

    I enjoyed your answers and you live in a beautiful area!

    Everyone is thankful for anteaters, except the ants of course…


    • November 27, 2016 at 5:12 pm

      Yeah, I can’t think why. I’ll have to look up “anteater” and see what anteaters eat.

    Sounds like the perfect life to me! ๐Ÿ™‚


    • November 27, 2016 at 5:13 pm

      I’m pretty happy with it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thankful for the blessings you enjoy and we vicariously enjoy through your talents for writing and photography and, yes, irrepressible humour!


    • November 27, 2016 at 5:13 pm

      Thanks, that’s a lovely thing to say ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds good to me. You’ve found your peace.

    Where you live looks perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOL – I read as far as your answer “anteater” and then had to go back to the start to see if there was something in the description of the task ahead, that I had missed.

    Those landscape shots made me realise that a shady, leafy path can actually look more tempting than a beach scene. I’m sure the beach is lovely, but that leafy path through the woods is what I’d choose!

      I like to be random on occasion ๐Ÿ™‚
      In Cornwall we have both woods and many beaches. I tend to choose the woods, or cliff walks, Not the beach!

    Anteater was the first thing that came to your mind? I wonder what a psychiatrist would say. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You live in a beautiful place!


    • November 29, 2016 at 4:29 pm

      I’d probably become the subject of their Nobel Prize-winning research project!
      It is a beautiful place I live in ๐Ÿ™‚

        You’re an optimist! ๐Ÿ˜

          They don’t call “Optimist Ali” for nothing! No, wait, they don’t call me that at all…

    Nicely done.

    Lovely Cornwall again. I’d say where you live is perfect for someone who enjoys a quiet, peaceful life – until the tourists charge in. Unfortunately, we all want a look at your beautiful county. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I always take my holidays outside of school holiday time so it’s not too bad at the usual tourist spots ๐Ÿ™‚

    Where you live is beautiful. Your home does not define your thoughts though, and what is going on in your life…what makes you happy. It is certainly a blessing for sure and to be thankful for. (I had acute bronchitis for what seemed like forever and am sorry I am back-tracking to respond today.)


    • December 11, 2016 at 7:20 am

      Very true! Sorry to hear about the bronchitis, I hope you’re on the mend.
