GOOD MORNING MONDAYS #105

Hi there everyone, welcome back to our weekly link up, I hope you will be blessed by your visit

What’s been happening in your lives??

Christmas is fast approaching and it feels like it is almost upon us. There are so many projects I want  to complete that it’s a little overwhelming.  I just need to sit down and write a list and then prioritise them all.

This past week has been good, but once again nothing is really standing out concerning what I achieved.

It was my husband’s birthday this week and even though we all got together last weekend we still had a special tea for him.  He ordered pizza and trifle and I think he enjoyed it all. I’m still cooking as though everyone is here, so we had heaps of leftovers, so he enjoyed his birthday food for a couple of days.20161130_183219He’s a fantastic husband and father and I am so blessed to be going through our life’s journey together.

Our chickens are growing and are now 5 weeks old.  We also have 5 bigger roosters in the pen and it’s starting to get crowded.  We’ve been discussing options of what to do with them next and that’s something we’ll be working on this coming week. 20161202_155838The veggie patch is going well and my husband has been inter-row weeding this week.  I still scratch around the tomato seedlings every couple of weeks to keep those weeds at bay, because they can get out of hand very quickly.

Sometimes it just amazes me how easy some things are. I usually make my feta and cheddar cheeses with rennet and starter culture but I ran out of rennet this week and made a farmers cheese with vinegar instead.  It worked really well and this may be another option, I actually prefer the taste because it’s milder but I need to add more seasoning next time.20161202_174729It’s so nice to be able to do this and I love giving it away and sharing the bounty from our land.  We are so excited with our orchard and veggie patch this year and look forward to what we can share from that.

And just because I can, here is a pic of our eldest granddaughter, she is such a happy little girl and it just warms my heart when she calls me grandma. 20161126_180928Okay, enough, onto our link up.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing a part of your lives and thoughts with us here.

A prayer request please.  My mother in law fell on Saturday morning and has broken her hip badly and she is in a lot of pain, please pray that they can get her fixed up and get her moving again. Thank you my friends.

What happens this week will depend on how my mother in law is doing and maybe a bit of driving to take my father in law around a bit. He can  drive which is great but it will be hard for him, i guess more prayers are needed for him too, thank you.

I would like to get some weeding done and Christmas cards made and addressed. I’m working on hand made Christmas presents too so I will keep on with that, and of course school and piano practice. We only have one more lesson and that’s it for the year and it’s up to us to keep up our practice.

Also a reminder about our monthly link up…

wisdom search4This months topic is TAKING OUR THOUGHTS CAPTIVE.

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.

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.”

  1. The cheese sounds and looks yummy! And, your granddaughter is a cutie. 🙂 I’m so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law’s accident! What a hard thing to deal with. I stopped and prayed for them.

    I was blessed to see that the poem I posted by Annie Johnson Flint was one of the top posts this week. 🙂 Thank you for hosting the link up!

  2. Happy Birthday to your husband! I and my husband both celebrate birthdays in November, which is close enough to Christmas as it is. 😉 December birthdays must be even harder. But sounds like you made it special! I love the picture of your eldest granddaughter’s beautiful smile. It made me smile today too. Praying for your mother-in-law.
