Hi there all! and welcome back to our weekly link up. How have you all been?

We’ve had a busy, full and productive week, and it’s nice to get to the weekend and somewhat relax a bit.

Earlier in the week we had singing lessons for the children and because we had our bible study on that night we went to the park and did our school work. It was a lovely afternoon but there was lots happening and it was a bit distracting for the children but we pushed on.

The latter half of the week was the start of our bi-annual butchery session and my husband and our no 1 started with a steer on Wednesday night. That was a big job as it was a big steer but that got it done and then on Thursday, with the help of our son-in-law, they did 6 sheep and a goat. Being able to do this really helps us financially and it is such a blessing.

It was nice to have everyone around our table at meals time again. It’s been a little bit since we’ve been together and we had a great time. Our grandchildren are growing up so quickly and they are so cute.While the family were down they helped my husband get one of our sows on top of one of our raised garden beds. Her job is too dig it over and eat the grass so that we can start planting our spring seeds. She won’t take long to knock it all down and seems very content and happy up there.Earlier in the week we were able to get some capsicum and cucumber seedlings in. They are doing really well and I put some preserving bottles over them to protect them from the cold weather. I’ve removed the bottles now as the days are nice and the sun is warm and I don’t want them to get burned off. We also had some new arrivals on the farm with these beautiful kittens. There is four of them and they have only just opened their eyes, they are so soft and cuddly.Apart from all that we did the usual music lessons and the normal chores around the farm. We have a couple sows ready to farrow any time now and our Highland cow just gave birth to a little heifer which is wonderful. She has only had bull calves since we got her so a heifer is just great and we will be able to breed from her later on.

We have been doing a Bible Study called One to One and it is building us up to sharing our faith and reading our Bible with another person. It’s all about relationships and scripture and the Holy Spirit. It’s quite exciting and we are praying about who God wants us to get together with.

Okay, onto our link up…

We are still having terrible internet issues so once again there won’t be a top three. I apologise for this and hopefully it will be all sorted by next week.

This coming week is equally busy with us cutting up and bagging the meat later in the week. Our no 2 daughter is having a bit of a holiday at her brother-in-law and sister’s house which will be lovely for them all. So it’s just the four of us at home until Thursday.

We have our usual singing lessons and bible study on Tuesday night and we’ll probably go to the park again this week for some school work, hopefully the weather will be lovely again.

This post comes to you hoping that you are well.  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 am just amazed at your stories — for instance, butchering your own steer! We have a friend who is starting up his own business of butchering wild game, because we just don’t even TRY to do that here. My youngest son got a fairly small buck, but with the hanging and all the mess, (added to the fact that we are clueless about cuts of meat!) it was just so wonderful to be able to pay someone else to do it!
    And I am sort of envious of your sow roto-tiller. I’m sure she does a great job, and leaves fertilizer behind in the process.

    Our gardening season is done. Now all that’s left to finish up is to convert all the blanched tomatoes in my freezer into spaghetti sauce. That will be a great help, because I need to free up space in the freezer!

    Blessed week to you!

    1. Hey there Michele, thank you for your kind words. I’m glad that you have found someone who can help you butcher your game. I am slightly envious that you have so much wild game that is edible, that’s amazing. Our sow is great but a bit slow as she is due to have piglets any day now so that’s exciting for us as well. Have fun making your spaghetti sauce, that’ll be so handy over the coming winter months. Blessings

  2. It is always a pleasure to link up with you. Thank you for all you do to bring bloggers together. I invite you to join me at #OverTheMoon, #WonderfulWednesday and #ThursdayFavoriteThings. Have a great week!

  3. What a busy time for you! I definitely understand the joy of having your family together when they haven’t been for a while. We should have most of our family here for Thanksgiving this year. I can’t wait! Thanks for hosting. Have a great week!

  4. I love the picture of so many faces around your dinner table. Meal times with our loved ones are such precious times. I’m looking forward to my oldest daughter coming home again this weekend and sharing the table together. Have a great week, Terri!

    1. Hey there Lisa, I hope you enjoyed the time with your daughter and sharing your table together, it is such a blessing I agree. We had a good week, I hope you did too. Blessings to you all.
