GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi there all! and welcome back to our weekly link up. How have you all been?
Well this past week started out much quieter than last week and it’s definitely a nice feeling to have the freezers full for the coming summer months.
We did some school this week and our usual piano practice, but we didn’t have singing lessons due to a public holiday. So I didn’t go to town until Thursday afternoon and from then on it was a bit busy.
My husband needed to help his mum out with some doctors stuff so I took the time to meet up with my friend to start our bible reading together. We met at the park so that our children could play with her young son on the swings and in the sand. It was a nice warm day with a delightful breeze so it was very pleasant. My friend brought a heap of snacks so no one went hungry.
We’ve now learnt to do our study first and then talk later because we didn’t quite get all the questions answered before my husband returned (and he was a couple of hours). We’ll answer them ourselves during the week and prepare ourselves for next weeks reading and questions before we get together this coming week. It was still good though and we chatted about other “God” stuff so it was an encouraging time.
Thursday evening we had pottery class again and it was nice to get back to it after a couple of weeks off due to our butchery work. We started the evening glazing our finished pots and our daughter did this one below. I think she did a great job.
I finally glazed my butter dish and I did it in white with a speckled glaze over it and I did my jug the same way. I’m looking forward to seeing how they turn out. I also glazed and made another bowl and these will be big enough for a small salad. My honey pot is finished and I’m just waiting to see how it dries this week. It turned out pretty big and I’ll show you when I’ve finished it – coloured and all.We only have about 4 lessons left until the end of the year so this coming week is our last one to make, the rest of the weeks will be glazing and finishing up. It’s been good fun and our no 2 daughter and I have enjoyed this time together learning a new skill.
Friday was a busy day also as we had a Homeschooling forum in Warrnambool. We managed to get a bit of necessary shopping in before it started and then came straight back to Hamilton afterwards for the children’s Bible class.
The weather has definitely started to feel very summery and it’s time to get some seedlings planted. I sowed a heap of zucchini and cucumber seeds in jiffy pots so that when my garden bed is ready I will plant them straight into the straw. The only problem is that the magpies are pulling the pots out of the trays, but we will carry on and I’ll finish doing some more this coming week.
The broad beans have been producing well and we enjoyed them sauteed in butter for tea the other night. there is another lot to pick and we’ll enjoy them later next week when the weather cools a little bit or I might find a salad recipe for them.
The weekend was our usual piano lessons and then we came home and my husband got us started on planting our potatoes. Next we need to plant our tomatoes which our no 1 daughter grew for us and then it’s the acacias in the orchard. Our trouble here is we are so wet for so long and we can’t get onto the ground to get it ready before we need to plant, so it’s full on when we finally dry up enough.
Okay enough about us onto our link up…
Out top three this week were…
Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up and sharing your hearts with us.
Okay this week is almost back to normal – ha ha – whatever that is. We’ve got our regular Bible study on Tuesday night and we’ve got our ladies group’s final meeting for the year on Wednesday and we’re having a bit of a Christmas lunch and I’ll meet with my friend after that for our Bible reading.
There’s pottery on Thursday night and Bible class for the children on Friday, piano lessons on Saturday and farm work after that. In between we’ll do school and my husband will work. They say this time of the year is the crazy busy season and I think they may be right, the good thing is we are doing it and being crazy together.
That is a definite blessing.
This post comes to you hoping that you are well. Keep on keeping on my friends…
Have a great week!!!
