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

Well another week has gone by and the weather has gone from warm and humid to wet and cold. It’s been quite a warm and dry Summer/Autumn so the rain is very welcome.It rained most of Saturday and the weather was not much over 12 degrees C for the day. I planted some more seedlings on Friday and the raised beds had started to dry out but it’s not an issue any more.

We had some good friends stay with us on Tuesday night. They used to attend our church and are now on a journey of learning to become missionaries in Africa. This journey will probably take them around 5 years but they are dedicated to God’s calling on their lives. They are good fun so it was lovely to have them around for a little bit and we enjoyed some deep conversations as well. They are such an inspiration.

Our no 2 daughter helped with a Bible Kids Club on Wednesday morning and I was able to meet up with my friend. We are busy catching up on our lives at the moment and we’re hoping to get back to our Bible reading this coming week. So much has been going on it’s hard to stop talking to each other.

A good friend gave me this beautiful jug for my birthday so I was thrilled when my husband brought me home these lovely roses to put in it. They look so nice in the kitchen. With the warmer Autumn weather we’ve been having the garden has still been producing. This week I picked tomatoes, zucchinis, capsicums and one lonely eggplant. The homegrown tomatoes taste so much better than the bought ones.With the change now to much colder it will be interesting to see how the garden finishes off. I need to wait for the pumpkin vines to die off before picking what pumpkins there are. The artichokes are still growing and I’m about to pull out the capsicums and zucchinis so that I can plant garlic and onions. I planted more broccoli and cabbage seedlings this week along with lettuces and beetroots.

Saturday my husband and no 1 son went on a camp with some other men and their children. It was just as well there was a hall to bunk it as it wouldn’t have been much fun outside. They had a good time but it was nice when they got home.

Okay onto our link up…

Welcome to any new bloggers linking up, I hope you enjoyed your visit and thank you all for taking the time to stop by.

School holidays are now over and it’s back to the hustle and bustle of school term. We have singing and piano lessons this week and my husband is busy with the Father’s course as well. The children’s Bible study will start again this week and I’m looking forward to catching up with all the mothers while that is on.

I’m home most of the other days and we’ll be continuing on with school and music practice. There will be gardening getting done and animals to feed and look after as well.

I’m now onto preserving apples so that’ll be high on my agenda this coming week. I will probably stew and bottle most of the apples and dehydrate slices as well. They are a great snack to nibble on.

Okay my friends, it’s been good to be here and I hope you 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
