GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi there all! and welcome back to our weekly link up. How have you all been?
It’s been a busy week for us but we have achieved a heap. We had to get the potatoes in the ground because a) they needed to get in and b) we needed the trailer. So Monday was spent cutting and planting 400 kgs of potatoes with the job being finished off on Wednesday. My husband did a great job and with the help of our younger two children he planted, fertilized and mounded the patch before we had heavy rain.
There is now water lying in the furrows between the rows but that is such a blessing and will definitely give them a good start.
Two of the sows we were waiting on to deliver us piglets did that as well this week, with one delivering Monday morning and one Tuesday morning. We now have over 20 piglets with more due shortly from another 2 sows.We had our ladies mission group Christmas luncheon on Wednesday and after that I met with my friend to continue our study of Mark. We are really enjoying this and after we study we are getting to know each other so much better.
We had our usual pottery lesson on Thursday night, but I can’t show you any pics because I’m moving into Christmas present time. We’ve only got a couple of classes left but I think that will be enough time to get everything finished.
Friday my husband and the children were busy planting tomatoes and they got 125 in the ground with another 125 going in on Saturday. We had a couple of big thunderstorms this week and heaps of rain so the ground is nice and damp again and the air is very muggy due to the warmth.
Friday afternoon the children had their usual Bible class and my husband went to pick up 100 day old chickens to add to the mix of farm life. These are our usual White Leghorn x New Hampshire chickens that will (in about 16) weeks start laying beautiful big eggs. Most of these will be for sale and this is our no 2 daughter’s business venture.
They are cute and fluffy now but they’ll grow up pretty quick.
Saturday was a busy veggie gardening day and on Saturday night our children were involved in playing background music for a YWAM dessert evening. It was a great night with funds being raised to purchase medical equipment for PNG, and it was good practice for the children too.
Sunday afternoon was our usual rest time so that we sort of catch up for the coming week, that doesn’t always happen but we try. My husband loves to get outside as that’s what he finds relaxing, me… I like my feet up 🙂 .
Okay, onto our link up…

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up, you are such a blessing.
This coming week is somewhat quieter with the gardening stuff anyway. My husband will be off farm working this week to catch up on some jobs and I’ll be getting back into routine with school and music.
We have our usual Bible study on Tuesday night and we are studying the Reformers. It’s definitely interesting and we did Martin Luther last week. Wednesday I meeting with my friend to do our Bible study and I think we’ll go to the park and have lunch as well. Then I’m home until our Bible class on Friday, there’s no pottery this week due the teacher being away.
We have a few birthdays over the next couple of weeks so I’m sure at some stage we will be getting together with our daughter and her family shortly.
We’re being challenged at the moment on forgiveness and handling things the way God wants us too. It’s so challenging to deal with hurtful words and misconceptions against you, but only God knows the truth and we answer to Him. Forgiveness is key to our Spiritual health and well being, don’t believe anyone who says it’s not important and there are plenty of scriptures to support that theory.
We are looking forward to Christmas and all the joy and love and getting together with family and friends that all entails. We are almost in planning mode and I look forward to getting it all sorted with our no 2 daughter and no 2 son over the coming weeks.
This post comes to you hoping that you are well. Keep on keeping on my friends…
Have a great week!!!
