Sharing My World This Week
As it is getting close to Thanksgiving for my American friends, this week Cee has asked us to list what we are grateful for. Normally I don’t find this an effort but this year I have felt as if the world was going a bit crazy or maybe, (probably) I am becoming a grumpy old lady and finding it harder to hold onto my belief that the world is fundamentally good.
I can still find good in some things though so here goes.
- Your home life? – My pets, they make me laugh and give me a reason to keep a routine going.
- Your family? – I’m extremely close to my sister even though we can’t meet as often as we would like and David’s family is my family too and I know they are there if I need them.
- Your blogging community? – My fellow bloggers are wonderful as they entertain me with their photos and stories and say nice things about mine. I feel like I know many of you.
- Your city or immediate area in which you live? – I am grateful every day that I am part of such a kind and caring community as Geeveston.
- The regional area in which you live? – I fell in love with the Huon Valley for its beauty. I love living the country lifestyle where I can have space around me and hear the birds.
- The country where you live? – I used to be proud to say I lived in Australia, not so much now but we don’t have war, we don’t have famine and we are still a democracy. That’s about the best I can say.
- You? – Apart from aches and pains and a loss of flexibility I have my health and my independence.
What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful to the kind neighbour who brought Cindy home when she got out the other day when I was not home. I’m grateful that we have had a few sunny days although the weather is still a bit unpredictable. The next week so far is a blank slate but I will try to get my Christmas cooking under way and I hope that our cricket team will do better in the next Test Match which starts later this week in Adelaide.
Thanks so much for sharing your world with us this week. 😀

Lovely post. Living in a country that doesn’t have war, where there is no famine, and there is democracy is such a blesssing. The aches and pains that come with getting older seems to just be part of life, but I know it isn’t fun. It is a wonderful blessing to have kind and caring neighbors.
