GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hey there all, how have you been??? Our internet is still playing up but I managed to get in and get the link up sorted while it was going okay. So I’m glad to say that we are back…
We’ve had a good week and it has been full of piano practice and school work which has been good. Our no 2 son’s reading is really improving and our no 2 daughter’s math is starting to make sense. It’s great when you see your children “get” something, it is such a joy.
We are only milking one cow at the moment but she is still giving us plenty of cream when we separate so I was able to get some more butter in the freezer this week. I am going to keep going with making it so that I have heaps in reserve to share and for when the cow dries off.Last weekend we got all our onions in and some more veg and it is looking very productive. My husband got some more seedlings on Saturday so I’ll put them in this coming week. The weather was very windy and wet here on the weekend so everything in the garden had to hang on tight.We had our usual bible study on Tuesday night and we are still working through Hebrews. This week we discussed what it was like for the people once they came to Christ and how they were treated and how their lives changed. Very interesting.
Friday we attended our second pottery class and we both got the chance to play on the wheel. It was very good fun although it was quite difficult. I managed to get one bowl looking reasonable and will get another chance next week. Next week, when the bowls have hardened we will clean up the bottom edge and then they will be fired. After the first firing they will then be glazed and then fired again. I’m excited to actually see something finished, but the teacher needs to wait until she has enough to go in the kiln.
We also worked with terracotta and made slab pots. Terracotta is a firmer clay and works well this way and also for bigger items on the wheel.
Saturday was our usual town day and then we had some friends from church out for tea. It was a great night and we all had fun together.
Sunday was church and then the children had an extra piano lesson just to consolidate some of their work. They are doing really well and there is only a week left until their exams. They are both looking forward to having them completed and moving onto something new.
Okay that’s all our news for this week.
Because our internet was down we didn’t have a link up last week so not top three, but that’ll be back next week.
This week is once again school and piano practice, the usual bible study on Tuesday night and pottery on Friday.
I want to fit in some vegetable gardening and maybe some mending as well, oh yes and some book work.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you all have to link up this week and also hearing what you have been doing.
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

The next time I feel as if I have too much to do, I’m going to remember this post. You get SO much done in a week! Here, the gardening and canning season is humming along. I managed to pick beans and can them in the same day, which felt very good!
Hey there Michele, it must be great to be canning and feeling like you are filling your pantry. I’m looking forward to our spring garden this coming year and hopefully it will be a good season and not too cool. It feels almost springish here at the moment. Have a great week. Blessings
I’m thankful you are back with the party but sad that your Internet is still acting silly. Fun to see you are preparing for vegetables. We have the first cooler morning of the Summer here in the humid Southern U.S. It is nice.
Thank you for all you do sweet friend,
Hey there Patti, I’m glad to hear from you and also glad it’s cooling off, although I would like it warmer today. We have had very sunny although cool days but quite strange for winter here. Internet and country living don’t always go hand in hand but we’ll keep on persevering. Have a great weekend. Blessings
“when the cow dries off” – I haven’t heard it put that way. I love learning new idioms and life lessons from you, Terri! Hope you have a blessed week.
Hi Lisa, it’s funny how we have different sayings, I love hearing the Americanisms that are so different to ours here. Thank you so much for your encouragement and support and also congrats on the new grandbaby, how exciting. Blessings
Thanks for hosting! Always a great party. Have a blessed day!
Thank you so much Marilyn, Blessings to you and yours.
