Hi all, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
How has your week been?? What have you been doing???
On Monday we said goodbye to our no 1 son. He has headed back up north to work for 6 months. It is always hard to say goodbye and the house feels very quiet without him but it is good for him to spread his wings and stand on his own feet. He is an amazing young man and we are so blessed to be his parents.We will see him again before the 6 months is up but I’m not sure when. We have a new grandbaby due in 4 weeks so maybe around then.
The vegetable patch is still producing lovely fresh tasting tomatoes and we bag them into 1 kg lots and sell them out the front of our property at our roadside stall. We also sell our eggs as well.
The children had their piano lessons early this week as we were away for the weekend and the pressure is on. There is only 6 more lessons until the first Eisteddfod. They have been practicing hard this week and have almost got their duet together. They really enjoy doing their duet and they have a lot of fun (most of the time).
We had our oldest granddaughters 4th birthday on Friday night and I managed to get this rag quilt finished for her. I was really pleased with how it turned out but it took me ages to clean up all the fluff, hopefully it won’t give her mother too much grief.
It’s made from velvet that I bought from a women who decided that she didn’t have time to use it. I was blessed to get it at a great price. I didn’t add any wadding because the fabric is thick enough and I had to use the walking foot on my machine.
On Saturday we headed to Melbourne with our son-in-law and no 1 daughter for our niece’s wedding. It was a great road trip and we had a ball together. We came home on Sunday and picked up the children from the good friends that were looking after them. The children had a great time as well and enjoy their young friends and playing with them.
Because we were away I didn’t get to do the top 3 but it will be back next week.
Thank you everyone for taking the time to link up and leave me encouraging comments, they bless me so much.
This week we have a 50th birthday party so I’m busy finishing off a rag rug as a present. It was great to have so much car time over the weekend and it’s nearly done.
Then the rest of the week is at home, schooling, music and I’m hopefully going to be able to get some vegetable seedlings in. The raised bed building came to a halt when the tractor broke down, but my husband will have it fixed this coming week so we can finish the beds.
It’s been damp and cool but the moisture is welcome and everything is so nice and green.
I apologise that I haven’t put up my next post on marriage and again I hope to get it out this week.
With things going wrong all around us and living in an very ungodly world we have to remember to trust God in all things, even the smallest of needs, He cares for them too.
Have a great week!!!
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.”
