GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP

Hi everyone, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.

As the weeks get closer to Christmas time seems to speed up and it can become quite hectic. I am thankful that we don’t have a lot of Christmas breakups to attend as it makes life much easier.

In Australia it is the end of the school year and we don’t start back until the end of January so the period over Christmas is our summer holidays, although at the moment summer is hiding.  We like to start school in mid January so that we’ve got some routine before we start our usual music lessons and other classes.

We had our weekly Bible study this week and due to other commitments it was our last one for the year. We had been going through a DVD series on the Reformation and it was so good to hear about the Reformers who gave so much of their lives to the working of presenting the truth of the Bible to the everyday people.

I also met with my friend for our Bible study on Mark and we are enjoying our time together and we are becoming good friends and learning so much from each other. The children had a good time in the park to this week and they enjoy each other’s company as well.

On the farm front the piglets are starting to roam and are often seen out and about.They are so cute but as they get bigger and dig deeper they can be a bit destructive.

My amazing husband and our no 2 son got in and rotary hoed the 2nd raised bed and then they helped me mulch it. It is so good to have this job done. We then planted a couple banana trees and some tomatoes and more zucchinis in the bed.
We also planted some more pumpkins and I’m looking forward to harvest time.

We had our last pottery session for the year and I brought home my honey pot and a few other dishes. I’m so pleased with this but I’m not sure I want to use it in case it gets broken.
Our no 2 daughter brought home a couple of pots as well as this one below which she has just left in the plain terracotta. This would be a great bread basket because you can actually put it in the oven to heat up or it would also look good with succulents in it, but she hasn’t decided yet.We had out local Christmas Carols on Friday night and there were also some games, a puppet show, craft and stories in the gardens for the children before hand. Our no 2 daughter had a great time helping one of the ladies from church with the craft activities and our 2 no son had a great time playing with his friends.

The carols were lovely and it was so nice to sit and sing our lungs out in praise and worship to God.

We’ve had a quieter weekend which has been nice. My husband had work he had to finish on Saturday morning so he took our no 2 son with which he always enjoys, and he is learning so much.

Okay that’s our week, onto our link up…

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up, it is always a blessing for me.

Well my friends this coming week we have no Bible study on Tuesday night but I am still meeting with my friend for our study of Mark. We have no pottery but the children have their last Bible Class for the year on Friday.

We need to see a dentist for our no 2 son so that might be Friday as well if we can get in.

It’s our no 2 son’s birthday this week so that’ll be fun and he is looking forward to it as well. There is a couple from church getting married on the weekend and we have all been invited to the afternoon tea, so that should be nice.

Christian weddings are just wonderful, when a man and woman become one united under God it is a blessing.

Okay my friends have a great week and I look forward to hearing about how you are all going.

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. Who doesn’t love baby animals? And piglets are SO adorable. I don’t know how one would resist bringing them into the home to live. I guess the mess, right? Your pottery projects are getting more difficult all the time and very beautiful. Have a blessed week dear lady.

    1. Hey their Patti, thanks for stopping by. I don’t think my husband (or me either) would appreciate piglets inside but I have heard of people who keep them inside as pets. Thank you for your encouraging words regarding my pottery, we have really enjoyed doing it. Have a great week and be blessed.

  2. Terri,

    It sounds like a fun week. I’m sure the kids and looking forward to their break from school. No matter how much they like learning, a break is always nice. I love the pottery, by the way. Thanks for hosting.

    1. Thank you Donna for your kind words, yes the children love holidays and having a break. We’ve enjoyed the pottery classes and I appreciate your thoughts on our pieces. Have a great weekend. xxx

  3. I imagine the piglets can do a lot of damage as they grow! I know the wild boars that run free here in Alabama can do so much damage to property.
    Your honey pot is adorable! So, so cute! I’d be reluctant to use it too for fear it would get broken, but it definitely needs to be seen. 🙂

    1. Hi Lisa, yes once they get on the move they do a fair bit of digging. I’ve put the honey pot on my dresser and it looks so cute, thank you for your kind words. Have a great week. Blessings
