Hey there everyone, welcome back to another week of link ups at our Good Morning Mondays Link Party.

Wherever you are I hope that you have had a good week. We have had beautiful Autumn weather this week, some warm days but beautiful cool nights. It’s warm again this weekend but back to cool and damp next week.

We had a heap of rain earlier in the week which was just lovely and they are saying that it was our autumn break, which usually happens around mid March.

I managed to get some apple slices dried this week and I worked it out that I dried around 40 apples. That means that there is still a heap to go, but I’ve made a start.I’ve also been working on my sock knitting for our granddaughters for their birthdays in April and May. I did one to get the size right and then I found some more feminine wool and started on another. I’ll make sure that they get pairs of both.

I was also blessed with some bamboo/wool from a friend and I’ve started a special project, but I’ll show you when it’s gifted.

The beautiful bamboo/wool I was gifted this week.

My wonderful husband and our no 2 son have been busy with work in the vegetable garden area this week and have almost finished one of the raised garden beds. The wet weather stopped him digging out the front for a little bit so he transferred his attention to the beds. We are already thinking about our winter crops and I’ll plant some broccoli, cauliflower and cabbages as soon as the first bed is finished.

I really enjoy the change in seasons, we’ve had a very mild summer but I’m still pleased to see autumn and winter coming. At the moment the season has us busy preserving our harvest and then it eases and we turn to inside work. More school and sewing and hopefully knitting.

We got a busy month coming up with April. We are needing to do a butchery session and it is planned for earlier in the month. Our freezers are almost empty. Then we have a niece getting married in Melbourne and shortly our no 1 son will head off again.

The school holidays are almost upon us so we get a break from early Saturday mornings but I think with the butchery they will be busy anyway.

This past weekend we spent with our son-in-law, daughter and their children. The men went to a tractor pull on the Saturday and us girls (and our youngest grandson) stayed together and had heaps of fun, talking, preserving, cooking and snoozing.

Actually it was more than a tractor pull, they had heaps of stuff and it went until Midnight. They had a great time together and it was one last bash before our no 1 son left again.

Okay, unfortunately due to our dodgy internet I’m not able to do the top three this week so I apologise, but it’ll be back next week.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and linking up each week.

This coming week will be more of the same, preserving, gardening, school and music practice oh and knitting. You can see I’m enjoying my knitting !!!

I also need to get into my sewing room and mend some work clothes and start on some new projects. I would like to make our granddaughters a rag quilt each for their birthdays and the first one is at the end of April so I need to get moving.

I’ve been almost keeping up with my scripture writing and I do enjoy it. It’s so busy at the moment but it’s so important to read God’s word otherwise I know for me I start to feel parched and distant from God. He never leaves us, but I’m sure he spends heaps of time waiting for us to come to Him.

Well I hope you are all going good and I just wanted to remind you all that I won’t be doing a Wednesday Wisdom Searching for a little bit while I am posting on my marriage series.

The first one came out this week and I hope to get the next one done in the next week or so.

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 my friends xxxx
