Sharing My World 2018 Week 29

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World.


Since we are approaching the hottest part of our summer in the northern hemisphere, what’s your favourite ice-cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet flavour?
I like all sorts, but for preference I tend towards fruit flavours. I do have the occasional toffee/biscuit flavoured ice cream, but that’s more a winter thing I reckon. Fruity is better for a hot day!

Here is a photo of my current ice cream drawer. For a treat I would buy mint choc chip or creamy white ice cream with raspberry/strawberry/blackcurrant sauce swirled in, but that stuff is expensive.


How often do you people watch?
I don’t really people watch. I’m not generally in the position to, I’m always on my way to or from rather than sitting and watching.

If you had a choice which would be your preference – salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?
Fresh water lakes, I reckon. They would be quieter than beaches. I’m surrounded by beaches on both coasts, though I don’t live near one, the closest is 7 or 8 miles away I guess. But they get really busy.

Here’s a lake in my vicinity (Colliford).

And here’s a bit of sea I took from our recent work summer party, later on as the sun was setting and my tummy was full of BBQ food. I was concentrating more on the plants than the sea when I took the picture, though.

    Great pictures, Ali. You live in a beautiful part of the U.K. That lake really looks peaceful. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

      It is really peaceful! It’s not one of those water sports ones so there aren’t many people around.

    Wasn’t “Raspberry Sorbet” a song by Prince?

    I just realized now the question about what inspired you the past week seems to have been dropped from this feature. I miss the random inspiration quotes from the generator…

      I think it was. The kind of raspberry sorbet you can buy in a second hand store. You’d have thought it would be melted. Dumb song.

      It’s “what did you appreciate or what made you smile this week” now. I can’t be having with all this “happiness” business. But just for you I ran the bot one more time and it produced this gem:

      “Public transportation begins when orgy ends.”

    Beautiful photos! Mermaid-approved! πŸ™‚
    Chocolate is always my ice cream of choice.

      Yay, mermaid-approved hee πŸ™‚
      Chocolate is good too. I need to be in mood for chocolate ice cream, though. I find straight vanilla the most refreshing πŸ™‚

      I’ll stick to the ice cream I think. Mice cream is just for cats πŸ™‚

    As I’m melting writing this on the hottest day (so far) of the UK’s summer, I have to say any ice-cream and any water to dive into would be lovely right now. I know I live on a river, but I just don’t fancy dipping my toes in there, so sea and fresh water lake please.

      It’s not going to be as hot down here, we’re escaping the “worst” of it this time I think. I’d be a bit wary about dipping my toes in a river too (depending on what’s upstream of course).

    Mint choc chip. Mmm my favorite.

    I like the looks of that ice cream drawer.

    Good stuff in your freezer πŸ˜‰

    I like the sea plant. We have something like that on the Gulf Coast – we call it sea oats.

      I call it “fuzzy grass thing” πŸ™‚
