GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
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
