GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP

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

We’ve had a full on but good week and for the next two weeks everything is on hold for school holidays so I’m actually home all of this coming week.

We don’t usually take school holidays off with school and it’s nice to get stuck into some work without all the other stuff going on, so not a lot of running around happening.

On Monday the children performed at the Warrnambool Eisteddfod. They had a great time and once again it was nice to catch up with friends that we don’t see very often. The children they perform with are the same each year and it’s good to see how they have improved over the past twelve months.  Needless to say they both brought home ribbons which is always exciting and a blessing.

We had our last marriage course session on Monday night and it was a great course. I would suggest that we had heard the information before but it was good to sit and discuss some of this stuff and be re-awakened to it. Sometimes we just need a nudge to remember and go – we should be doing this or that. It was a seven week course and we would definitely recommend it to any married couples.

I was excited to finish our eldest granddaughter’s cardigan this week and doubly excited to be able to give it to her on Thursday.  It fit really well with extra growth room, which is always a bonus. I think she was pretty happy with it too, it being in her favourite colour.The back of the cardy had this lovely pleat in it and it sits so nicely when she is wearing it. I’ve got a couple of orders for now so I’m on the search for the right ply yarn now that our wool shop has closed. I’ve commenced my next project which is a little cardigan for my friends little boy who is 4 months old. It’s in 12 ply so it shouldn’t take too long.Our no 2 daughter and I got together with the ladies to do some sewing for Days 4 Girls and we managed to get a bit done this time. It is going to be a big job but we’re all up for the challenge. During the holidays we’ll set up in the church hall and do a couple days together. It’s much more fun being together and doing it, the fellowship is great.

We didn’t have book group this week due to a couple not being able to make it but we’ll meet again after the school holidays. We’re still enjoying the book and we’re over half way now so we’re on the look out for another book to read together.

My husband and no 2 son have been busy doing woodwork together. Our son is carving a walrus and he’s doing a great job and I think my husband is doing some scroll sawing, and he always does an amazing job. I’m looking forward to sharing when they are done.

It’s been cold here this week with a couple of frosts, so the garden is quite slow at the moment. I’m looking forward to the brassicas getting going and I’m also looking forward to eating them. The livestock around here do give our garden a hard time and last time the chickens were the problem, so hopefully we’ve got that sorted. We’ll get out this week and do some weeding and some more mulching.

Okay enough about us, onto the link up…

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up.

As I said earlier I’ve got the coming week at home. There is a camping trip next weekend and the children are going with their older siblings and we’ll go down for a day or so as well. Hopefully it won’t be too cold and wet.

I might try and have a friend over for a visit and catch up but other than that we are home, schooling and I’d like to do some sewing with our no 2 daughter.

I’ve been doing some devotions on Spiritual Warfare to follow up on our Fervent book, and it’s been so good to keep that in the front of my mind. As wives and mothers we stand in the gap for our husbands and children and it’s our job to pray for them specifically and fervently. Don’t give up ladies, don’t let the enemy confuse you or make you feel insignificant. You have an amazing role to play so keep at it.

I hope you are all going well and I look forward to hearing from you.

Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Blessings my dear friends xxx

  1. Congratulations to your children for winning the ribbons at the Warrnambool Eisteddfod! Your granddaughter looks so cute in her beautiful new cardigan. Thanks for sharing my post from last week. Have a blessed week, Terri.

    1. Thank you so much Lisa, the children worked so hard so it was very encouraging for them and also thank you for the kind words about the cardigan, that’s encouraging also. Bless you xxx

  2. My grown kids have been trying to get us to go camping with them at the lake later this month. It’s not my favorite thing. We’ll probably go for a day or 2 and stay in a nearby motel. LOL Thanks for hosting and have a blessed weekend.

    1. Hey there Donna, the motel sounds good, we had a nice little cabin with hot water and heating, it was good. Enjoy your time away when you get there. Blessings dear friend.
