GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi everyone, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
What’s been happening in your part of the world, how has God been speaking to you this past week???
We’ve had a good week, albeit a busy one. We’ve had a mixture of sick children and doctors visits and Bible studies and grandchildren visiting. Full on but fun.
I’ve been working my way through the apples that need preserving and we’ve been watching the tree below for a few weeks now and it still has apples on it so we took the plunge and picked some.
We are always on the lookout for roadside apples that have some characteristic that we like so that we can use them to graft onto root stock. This tree is a very late season one and the apples were very tasty so it gets a tick all round.
We got to spend some time with our son-in-law, no 1 daughter and their children this week and we were able to help them move a couple of loads to their new home. This coming week will be the big move but it was nice to get some stuff gone for them, and it was also great to see the children and have heaps of cuddles.
This is our grandson and he is almost 3 and a real wag, such a joy to have around. He’s really started to interact with us lately and sat with me for ages the other day just putting his cold little hands on my cheeks and then laughing his head off when I reacted – so cute.
I managed to get my seedlings in the ground too and we had some rain which has been lovely. The air is definitely cooler and it won’t be long and we’ll be starting the wood stove to keep us warm. I’ve got broccoli, cauliflowers, cabbages, lettuces and beetroots in the ground now and snow peas and garlic to get in next week.
I really like the winter vegetable garden because we all like the brassicas that we can grow this time of year. We can’t grow them in summer because the cabbage moth love them and just about destroy them, so we don’t bother now.
The children had their Bible class and I was able to meet up with my friend to read and study our Bible together. We were in 1st Corinthians this week and it led to a very interesting discussion.
Saturday was piano lessons and my husband bought me a new chair for the lounge room. It’s sort of like a club chair and it’s very comfy and my feet actually touch the ground. We brought it home in the boot of the car, it was an interesting load but my husband is most amazing so it made it home in good condition.
Our local wool shop was having it’s final closing down sale and I managed to grab a bit more wool for sock making. I’ve never seen so many people in that store at one time, it was amazing and everyone was out for a bargain and we definitely got one.
Sunday there was a luncheon at our church which is always the first Sunday of the month. We always enjoy these Sundays as we get time to fellowship with our friends and church family.
Okay onto our link up…

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up, I hope you enjoyed your visit and learnt something new.
This week is going to be equally as busy as the last one, actually all of May is kinda crazy, so I’m hanging on until after the Eisteddfod. Really I should be enjoying every moment, and I am, I’m just more of a homebody than an outbody but I’ll get there.
We’ve got the usual singing lessons this week due to cancelling last week. Wednesday is big moving day for our daughter so we’ll be up helping them. I’m so excited that they are moving closer to us and I’m looking forward to spending more time with them and the children.
We’ve also got our book club this week and were up to Strategy 4 – our family, it should be a good get together. The children also have their usual Bible study and I’m meeting with my friend again.
We’ve got a steer to hang up at the end of the week for our bi-annual butchery day the following week. We worked it really well last time and I’m almost out of meat and I’ve been scrounging off our daughter as they had more left. It’s such a great system for us.
Our no 2 daughter and myself have a market next Saturday morning, so that should be good and there’ll be heaps of friends to catch up with during that, and then it’s chill out time and next Sunday is Mother’s Day, so I’m looking forward to being pampered and lavished upon ;-).
I can’t remember if I’ve told you but I’m doing a Koinonia Institute course at the moment and we’re up to Revelation. I’m finding it very interesting and understanding more and more of the end times, though I’ll never get it all. Dr Charles Missler passed away this week and our family has been blessed by his teaching and I always liked that he said “don’t just listen to what I say but search the scriptures for yourself”, such sound advice.
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

Our grandson is also three!
I googled the phrase ” a real wag” and it describes our little guy as well. Isn’t it amazing how inquisitive and articulate they can be at 3?
So interesting all that you are doing with apples. I must say, you folks are true farmers, through and through!
Hey Michele, it’s a great age for sure and I know our little grandson is always looking at bugs and spiders and he’s fascinated in them. Thanks for your kind words and I hope you are going well. Blessings
I had to have a medical test done last week and it was challenging, but the Lord and my husband were very kind to me and it went off well. The downside is what it will reveal as the necessary next step. My mom is headed to the cardiologist this week, Lord willing, to get results on her tests, and hopefully hers will not require anything too drastic. So, doctor’s stuff for us too, but different from yours. 🙂
I’m glad to hear you had such a fun time with your 3 yo grandson. 🙂 Also, I think it’s neat that you collect “stray” apples for your own orchard! That is so great.
Dear Mary, it sounds like you have a lot on your plate with doctors and such. I hope your test results were good. Thank you for your kind words and I hope you feel God’s presence as you go through all your tests. Blessings.
Your little grandson is adorable! Our grandbaby is only 3 months, and I love this tiny stage; she’s changing too quickly. But 3 years is a fun, fun year too! Have a great week, Terri. Hope everyone stays healthy and won’t need doctor’s visits.
Thanks for the linkup and it sounds like your May is starting off with some fun with the grandkids… we are finally getting some nice weather up here in the PNW which finally means I can plant some flowers this weekend — yay
Hi Debbie, it’s good to hear from you and I’m glad you can get out into the garden, enjoy!! Blessings
