A warm welcome to you all as we meet together this Monday morning at Good Morning Mondays.

What a nice restful, quiet week I have had, nothing much on and getting back to normal after the last couple of weeks.

Our no 1 son was home last weekend and as usual we really enjoyed his visit and he got to meet his newest niece as well

Our no 1 son and his niece.

Because it was a long weekend here he only left on Monday so it was a bonus to have him around for that bit extra and hear about all that he is doing while he is away.

I also want to show you the amazing birthday cakes that our no 1 daughter and her husband made and decorated for both their sisters birthdays last weekend.

These cakes were amazing and there are 6 cakes in each tower. They had to bring it 150 km to the party and that didn’t happen without incident, but they made it and looked and tasted great. We have some in the freezer for lunches in the coming weeks.

We really didn’t do too much after the weekend until Wednesday and then we got back into school and piano practice. Scales are the order of the day at the moment.

We managed a trip to town on Thursday with my husband and did some groceries and filled the larder again.

Our little chickens have now graduated into the big girl pen out in the vegetable garden area. ย They are enjoying the extra room to flap their wings and dig in the grass. We will keep them locked up for a while and then let them roam a bit during the day. They must be locked up at night otherwise the foxes will have a feast of them.As I said last week our fruit trees arrived on Tuesday and my husband had already worked up the area for the new orchard but did a bit more work out there this week. We will be moving our original trees that we got last year out there as well but this weekend we managed to get in all the new trees.ย We’ve had some cold days but not much rain lately and the sunshine has been just lovely. The vegetables are growing and so is the grass and it’s a nice time of the year at the moment. Hopefully by August it will have gotten wetter but we’ll see.

So all in all a quiet week at home and nothing terribly exciting to report, the weekend was the usual music lessons and church.

Thank you all for stopping by and linking up, I hope you were blessed by your visit.

I’ve got another quiet week coming up and plenty of time for school and piano practice. Next weekend is the Fathers/children camping trip and they are all looking forward to going away together.

I’m excited to get our son-in-laws jumper finished and I’m hoping to spend a bit of time at this during the week.

We are still studying Hebrews at church and it is always such a blessing to have that time with the Lord. I have been thinking a lot on reconciliation and forgiveness even if there is no reconciliation.

There is no getting around it – forgiveness is a very important part (a necessary part) or our Christian life.

How do you deal with forgiveness especially when you aren’t or can’t be reconciled??

Okay my friends what’s on your agenda for next week???? and what have you been up to??

Thank you all for your support and may God bless you all.

Keep on keeping on my friends…

Have a great week!!!

Numbers 6:24-26 โ€œThe 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.โ€

Blessings my friends xxxx
