Hi everyone, and welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays.
Do you feel that the moment we hit December that time just goes into overdrive and is passing even more quickly???
It seems to me when December 1 passes it is January 1 before we know it and I am determined that I am not going to get stressed out over Christmas because that isn’t really the point.
If I don’t get all my cards done and I don’t get all the baking done that I would have liked, I am going to be OKAY with that.
Of course this year I am rather inhibited with movement and really probably not done too much anyway, but I am trying to let it go.
This Christmas we are going to our son-in-law and daughters place which will be wonderful, so the pressure is really off. Last year we had quite a few here and it was a wonderful time with family and extended family as well.
This past week has been quite slow for me. We had such a big weekend that I have really taken it easy and have managed to get a bit of a cold too, but that is nearly gone now.
We had our final Revelation Study on Tuesday night and we are looking at studying the Pastoral Letters next year which sounds very interesting. We have such a lovely group and we have come to appreciate each one of them very much.
We had our local show on Saturday and our no 1 son went in the shearing competition again and came 1st in the Intermediate Section and no 2 daughter did some baking and received two 3rd places.
I managed to get around on my gopher and this was quite a bit of fun and it was quite warm too so it was nice to be able to park in the shade.
Our vegetable patch is going well although we have had a couple days of hot dry wind which has been giving the tomato plants a hammering, but they are holding up well. We are still waiting for some pumpkins to germinate and that should be any day now.
The aquaponics is going well and the tomatoes are going good in there, they look nice and strong. We have started picking some carrots as well, although they are small, they are lovely just to boil up whole.
Our top three posts this week were…Homosexuality: “Many Voices” by Donna at Soul SurvivalChristmas Idea Round-up by Tammy at Taylor Made HomesteadWhat to do with Your Thanksgiving Turkey Carcass by Kathi at Oak Hill Homestead
Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up. I hope you were blessed by it. I am sorry that I am not getting to all your posts each week and I hope you will stick with me until I get back there.
This coming week we have a couple of BBQ’s to attend as a sort of Christmas breakup, which should be nice. Once again it doesn’t matter the reason it is always good to fellowship together.
We have our last music lesson on Saturday and also our no 2 son’s 8th birthday. He has been looking forward to his birthday for ages. I’m not sure yet what we will do, but it will be fun.
What have you got on your agenda this week, and what is your weather like??? I find it hard to imagine it snowing at the moment, when it is warm here.
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 my dear friends. xxxx
