Hi all, how have you been and what’s been happening in your lives this week???

I had another one of those quiet at home weeks where it’s hard to remember what happens from day to day.

My husband has been really busy with work which is such a blessing but makes him tired at the end of the day. We look forward to Saturdays when there is no music lessons and we can sleep in a little bit before getting the day started.

We did go to town one day to do some banking and groceries and the children and I enjoyed lunch at one of our local bakeries. The cakes and slices on display are always very tempting. I’m not usually a sweets person but I couldn’t resist this delicious looking Rainbow Cake, and it was definitely worth it.I managed to get some more seedlings into our nft system on the aquaponics. I’ve filled all the holes now and we are going to do some more pipes in the coming weeks.This time I planted rocket, spinach and tatsoi and I’m looking forward to harvesting the rocket and spinach. I haven’t grown rocket before and I really enjoy the taste in salads so it’ll be nice to have our own.

The raised beds are doing great as well and the broad beans are going great guns and look really healthy. It’s been extremely dry and cold here lately but that seems to be doing them good.

On Saturday we butchered 5 rooster and 3 ducks. The ducks belong to friends of ours and we helped them out by doing them. I don’t think we’ll go into growing ducks as they take a huge amount of time just in the plucking.

No 2 daughter is just like her older sister was and definitely enjoyed getting her hands dirty and helped her dad gutting the birds.They all did a great job and we were really pleased with how easy and clean the roosters ended up and they will definitely be enjoyed in the coming weeks. They may not taste like KFC but I’m sure they will still be okay.

By the end of Saturday we were rather tired so Sunday afternoon was a chance to rest and catch up and prepare for the coming week. We enjoy a quiet Sunday afternoon.

Okay onto our link up…

Our top three this week were…

An Open Letter To Young Women by Simply Living the DreamFriday Finisher 6/30/17 by Strength and Sunshine
6 Books I Still Think About – Part 2 by Thoughts on Books

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up, I hope you enjoyed your visit.

This coming week is another quiet one with school, music and probably a trip to town for groceries.

I have onions to plant in the raised beds this week and I need to get some mending done as well. There’s always plenty of things that need to get done.

We are still working through Hebrews at Church and that is still very enlightening, I’m looking forward to what book our Pastor takes on next.

What’s on your agenda this week???

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 “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

  1. I remember when my kids were all small that it was exciting to think about going somewhere — “Oh, today we have piano lessons!” Then . . . as they have become older, I am just the opposite — “Oh, today we get to stay home!” Of course, I’m sure this has nothing to do with the fact that I, too, have gotten older. 🙂

  2. You all work so hard on the farm. I’m glad to hear you take a day of rest. It is God’s blessing to us isn’t it? Love hearing your stories and love joining your party.
    Blessings friend,

  3. Hi Terri! My first visit and link-in with you at Darling Downs and it is a delight to meet you and your dear family! What a splendid life you have living on the farm so intimate with God’s creation.
    God’s richest blessings be yours!

    1. Hey Kathy, so lovely to meet you and welcome to Darling Downs. I look forward to getting to know you better and hearing about you as well. Have a great weekend. Blessings.

  4. I have those weeks too when I can’t remember what I even did. That usually means we did a lot, right? 🙂 Unfortunately, I am always a sweets person so your local bakery would have been very tempting to me. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, Terri.

  5. Thank you, so much for featuring my post on Marriage! I’ve been reading you blog for a long time, and it seems a little surreal to see my blog mentioned on it! I enjoy your posts and appreciate the ability to share mine! Have a wonderful week!
