Hi there everyone, welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays Link Up.

We are excited here at the moment, the sun has been shining, the tractor has been working and our no 1 daughter has grown our tomato seedlings (and some others as well) and we can get them in the ground this week.20161104_080839We have 500 tomato seedlings hardening up outside and 50 capsicum seedlings as well. It has been so wet here we wondered at times if we would ever get anything planted, but God is good to us and it has dried up enough to get the ground worked up.

Friday was an absolutely beautiful day, the sun was shining, it was almost warm but with a pleasant cool breeze.

We moved the little chicks onto the lawn in a bigger pen, they are growing so quickly. We still have lights on for them because the nights are still quite cool and it was really quite cold on Saturday but they are still enjoying the ability to move around and get out in the sunshine when it is there.20161104_105040We were also blessed to be able to purchase some pure bred roosters on Saturday morning.  There is this boy in town, I would say he was about 11 or 12 and he is incubating eggs and selling pure bred hens and roosters. There isn’t much call on the roosters so we get them at a very reasonable price but he can’t keep the supply of hens filled.  20161105_115439We got 5 white leghorns and 1 australorp and they are nice healthy birds.

My husband has been home most of the week and has been able to get lots of work done around the farm.  Our no 2 son has been sick all week and it only just starting to improve. It was unusual for him to still be in bed at 9 am and not wanting to eat but hopefully he will keep improving over the coming week and we can get some school work done.

At nights I have been working on my rag rug and I am really enjoying it as it grows. I like the randomness of colours and patterns, and this one is in blue, pink and white tones.20161104_165948I am hoping to use this as a bath mat and I want to make a couple for Christmas presents as well.

With our no 1 son home for a few months my husband and I have been able to get out occasionally for a cuppa. We tied a trip to town to pick up tomato seedlings and a cuppa this week and it was nice to just be together and chat. We spent some time on our front veranda on Friday enjoying the sunshine and watching the chickens on the lawn, we enjoy these times together.

We had the children’s piano lessons on Saturday morning as usual and they are going really well. Our no 2 daughter is starting to show maturity in her playing and her teacher has been very pleased. They have lovely pieces this time as well and they are nice to listen to as they practice.

I am now on Instagram and if you would like to follow me over there just look up @country_homeschooling_grandma. I’m sorry but I haven’t figured out the buttons to put on the blog yet, but I’m still there if you are interested.

So enough about our week and onto our link up…

Thanks everyone for stopping by and linking up, I hope to see you all here again next week.

I have another quiet week again this coming week, I really enjoy my time at home and not having to be running around in town.

I’m hoping to get some school work done and we obviously have heaps of tomato seedlings to plant and we want to do that this week also.

Thank you for praying for our friends little son Jotham,  your prayers are appreciated. His problems are still continuing and now he needs to go to Melbourne to see doctors there. This is hard and very unsettling for their family and children and I ask again that you pray for them all and their doctors so that they can get things sorted.

I have still been thinking on CONTENTMENT and look forward to hearing from you at our monthly link up …wisdom search4Also 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.

I pray that you will 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.”

  2. I love your rug, what a great idea for gifts. Looks like there are lots of fun features, and some great links too this week! Today I’m sharing a: A delicious double-chocolate banana chunk cookie recipe; A fun repurposing project using worn denim to make cute denim baskets; and A delicious pear preserve recipe. Love the hop, thanks for hosting!

  3. Terri, it sounds like a busy planting and chick raising season coming up for you. How exciting, though, to get a chance to have a little extra couple-time while your older son is home. Thanks for the linkup and blessings to you! Praying for little Jotham.

    1. Hi Donna, thanks for stopping by. Yes it is busy with chicks and planting it is a busy time of the year. I must admit I enjoy the winter weather and the ability to stay inside and keep warm. Thank you also for your prayers for Jotham. You are such a blessing to me. Have a great weekend.
