Sharing My World 24-06-2019

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. Time to choose a logo!

Are you more a thinker or a doer?
Definitely a thinker. I do a lot of thinking about all the chores I need to do, but there’s not been so much actual doing going on.

I did get a new storage unit for my bathroom though. I assembled it a couple of days ago. Here it is!

Why is beauty associated with mortality?
I don’t know! I don’t understand the question 😦 Unless it’s something about rotting corpses not being beautiful. So instead here’s a picture of some ice cream I made last week with strawberry syrup squirted on top. I used the no-churn no-heating method so it was very quick and easy.

Drali Ice

If everyone spoke their mind (told the literal truth), would this world be a better place?
Nope. Imagine if everyone came up to you and told you what they actually thought of you? I don’t wanna know…

Can religious beliefs affect scientific thinking?
I’m sure they do for some. They shouldn’t though. Science is all about formulating a theory and then devising a way to prove it. “Belief”, religious or otherwise, doesn’t really come into it.

    Good answers, Ali. Good grief! I can imagine how many fights would break out if everyone told the truth out loud. Say goodbye to neighborhood peace let alone world peace. Come to think of it, maybe that’s why we don’t have world peace. Too many loudmouths are giving their truthful opinions even without being asked. 😦 — Suzanne

      They need to learn to keep quiet πŸ™‚

    Hey big nose – I think social media has largely done away with tact and diplomacy. A large part of the world population seems not to have been taught that words, once said or written, cannot be unsaid, or unwritten.

    I think they shorted you two drawers in your storage unit…


    • June 30, 2019 at 8:23 pm

      I wondered what those big holes were for…

    I’m also more of a thinker than doer when it comes to chores. I live in organised chaos.
    I need your ice cream recipe! πŸ™‚


    • June 30, 2019 at 8:26 pm

      Me too!
      300ml double cream, add whatever flavouring and whip until stiff. 3 eggs, separated, Whisk the whites until stiff. Add 125 ml castor sugar to yolks and beat to paste. Add yolks to cream and whip. Fold in whites. Freeze (around 1 day). Whip/stir occasionally while freezing to minimise ice crystals. Didn’t bother with the last bit but it’s a good idea πŸ™‚

    Thanks Ali for Sharing Your World! That cabinet looks beautiful, clearly you excel at DIY, a skill which a lot of folks don’t share. I answered your comment on my original SYW about beauty and mortality…I don’t think many ‘got’ that, I know I didn’t. That ice cream looks amazing. πŸ˜›


    • June 30, 2019 at 8:27 pm

      Ha, I just followed the instructions in the box πŸ™‚
      That question was just too deep for me!
      The ice cream is very nice πŸ™‚

    Excellent answers!

    Your bathroom is carpeted?
    You made your own ice cream? Impressive! ☺


    • June 30, 2019 at 8:28 pm

      A carpeted bathroom is quite common here (though not recommended these days if you’re selling). I prefer it though πŸ™‚
      I just followed a recipe, it’s easier than it looks!

    I also got into the alive versus rotting dead issue. I think I read too much science fiction and fantasy. Too many vampires, werewolves, and crazed wizards.


    • July 1, 2019 at 4:37 am

      That’s another slightly philosophical question – can there be too much reading of vampires, werewolves and crazed wizards?

    Great answers, Draliman ! Now can I have some Drali ice and that place mat, please 😺 COOL Pawkisses for a Happy DayπŸΎπŸ˜½πŸ’ž

    Enjoyed your comments as always. And the ice cream added a nice visual touch.

    Speaking one’s mind, saying what you think and speaking the truth. I agreed with your answer, but then took a good look at that question again. If everyone told the literal truth, the world would be a better place. The trouble is, most people are under the impression that their opinion IS the literal truth. I think if we could at least divide one from the other, the world would be a lot better place. πŸ˜‰

    A friend told me that years ago there was a newscaster here in Canada who ended his viewpoints by saying, “Remember, this is one man’s opinion.” Can you imagine what effect that truth could have on news reporting today! :O


    • July 4, 2019 at 2:39 pm

      True. Once people agree that my opinion is the truth, the world will be much better. Under my benevolent rule πŸ™‚

        And the rule of everyone who thinks like you. all others will be shot. Isn’t that the way it usually goes? πŸ˜‰

    That ice cream looks yummy.

    I’m a thinker, too, which my husband hates because I always have something for him to do πŸ˜‰


  12. July 1, 2019 at 11:19 pm

    I think every day about chores as well… I even think how nice it would be if someone would avail themselves and complete them. Just hasn’t happened … yet?

    Making your own ice cream…. YOU ARE a DOER!!!


  13. July 2, 2019 at 9:20 am

    Happy to see how you’ve been doing, Ali. I think I need a scoop of that ice cream. πŸ˜€


    • July 4, 2019 at 2:42 pm

      Nice and cooling in these warm temperatures πŸ™‚
