Hey, hey, hey everyone, welcome, it’s so lovely to be back to welcome you to another Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
How has your week been and are you well???
I’m excited to say that we achieved a heap of school this week. Now I know that isn’t that great but it is around here. Some weeks pass that quickly and before you know it you haven’t achieved any book work. I know that there are lots of other important things to do other than that, but it’s definitely good to see some progress towards the end of the text books.
My husband starting milking again this week – yay!!! no more buying milk. I made some cheddar and some feta cheese and it was so nice to get back into it again. It has been quite a while since I have made cheese, I don’t think I have made any since I broke my leg 12 months ago.
I have been making sour dough bread in the past weeks and I have been doing it by hand. It isn’t hard but my no 1 daughter gave me her recipe and I have been making it in the bread machine. It works great, I use the machine to mix it and then I leave it in there until it rises and then just press the bake button. I have been grinding wheat to put into it and it is just delicious. It seems to be a lot lighter done this way than doing it by hand.Only trouble with it is it is very moreish, it’s hard to stop eating it :-(.
I’ve had a young man with a bit of asthma and a bad chesty cough so we didn’t go with my husband to his fruit tree grafting course on Saturday. He seems to be prone to this type of thing during the winter months.
It has been cold this past week with a couple of frosts in the morning. The rain has eased somewhat but it is so muddy outside. One of our cows got out and my husband and children went in the 4WD to get it back in and found out how wet it actually was.
I got called in to drive the vehicle as they winched it out. The children thought it was great fun of course.
Okay that’s my week, it’s been quiet but good…

Thank you again everyone for linking up. I’m sorry I don’t get around to reading all your posts, there’s just not enough time, but the ones I do get to I enjoy. So please keep coming and blessing me and others with what you have to offer.
This week coming is another quiet one at home, school, music practice and maybe even a bit of gardening if the weather is fine.
My husband had to move the pigs in the hothouse already as they were under water, but they did a great job of digging up the dirt and spreading the hay around.
Also remember you don’t have to link up, but I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section, so stop over if you get the time.
Have a blessed week my friends and may God lead and guide you in your everyday life.
Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
Blessings to you all xxxx
