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

Another week gone by and another week closer to spring here and another week closer to the birth of our next grandchild. Only a few weeks to go and we will get to meet the newest little bundle of joy, you can tell we’re excited.

We are in the middle of winter here, with six weeks left until it is officially spring, unfortunately sometimes spring doesn’t realise it’s here until much later. We can have very mild weather and then we can get very hot weather before Christmas, only God knows what’s coming this year.

I’m about a month off sowing seeds into jiffy pots to plant out in Sept/Oct. Last year I just put the seed into jiffy pots and then straight outside but they were slow, so this year we are going to sow them and have them sprout in our hothouse and then harden them off and plant them, in the jiffy pots, into the raised beds. Hopefully this will mean a much earlier harvest, but we’ll see. I then just need to keep the birds away and keep them protected from the frosts that we can get here up until November.

Some of the mince we have put into our freezer.

We managed to get the last of the cow cut up and packaged. We’ve got some lovely roasts, diced beef and mince in the freezer now to keep us going until the end of September, when we do our spring/summer kill.

This past week we had the final night of our Marriage Course, it was really a party or a sort of break-up. It was a great night with great desserts and some interested couples who came to hear what it was about, and may participate next year.

Our no 1 son is working up north again for a couple of weeks so the cooking and washing load is a bit lighter here at the moment. It’s hard to get washing dry here so not having as much is good, though we do miss him and I wouldn’t complain about the washing if he was home.

We had quite a quiet week at home this past week, which was nice and it was good to focus on our schooling and music. It was wet though so there wasn’t much outdoor stuff happening.

Okay, onto our link up…

Our top three this week were… Week End Treasure Hunt by Penny’s Vintage HomeThe #1 Location To Spend More Of Your Time by Woman Abiding Pursuing Unity in Marriage by G & E

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up.

Next week is another almost at home one except for book group on Thursday afternoon. We are also getting together to do some Days 4 Girls sewing that morning, so it’s one day out instead of two.

We are starting a new Bible Study on Wednesday night and it’s on Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. It sounds interesting and it’s a new group for us so it will be great to get to know some others really well.

There’s our usual meet on Friday afternoon where my husband and I both meet with friends to do Bible Study. My husband and his friend are looking at Proverbs whilst my friend and I are discussing Biblical education. Both different topics but both very interesting.

I think we are doing a big rooster kill on Saturday at our no 1 daughter’s place so that we can get on top of them all before she has their next baby.

That’s about all for the week and I look forward to hearing from you all.

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. Well, if you are only 6 weeks away from spring, then we are only 6 weeks away from autumn. I love that season here, but am in no hurry to end this gorgeous summer. Right now I have blossoms on EVERYTHING in my garden (including the pesky eggplants), and I have a feeling I’ll be picking beans by the end of the coming week. (Hope it’s no sooner than that because our church’s children’s outreach is this week, and I’m gonna be hopping!)

  2. it sounds like your week was a productive one and – hey one more week closer to a new grand-baby is awesome. We are finally in summer here in the PNW state of Washington – 90+ weather all week, which is unusual for us, but hey, the sun is out and summer finally has decided to arrive with no rain, drizzle or gray clouds. Thanks for hosting, I am fairly new to joining you here.

    1. Hi there Debbie you are right a week closer to another baby is great and we are excitedly waiting and praying for our daughter and her husband. Sounds like you have nice weather, enjoy the sunshine and thanks for stopping by. Blessings

  3. You have been busy! It’s finally cooling down to 31.6 degrees C, for this week (SE Kansas). We’ve had heat indices up to 46.1C. Our friends and family in Texas are averaging 46-48 C without any heat indices (or “real feel” with humidity factored in. Our summer came right after winter gave up in April, never did have spring. We’ve not hardly seen a bit of rain, the corn crops are looking to go to sileage due to burning up.

    You have been working hard on your farm for years, you will have a wonderful start when it’s planting season! I’m looking forward to your pictures!

    1. Hi Angie it’s good to hear from you again, sounds like you have warm weather, actually very hot weather, I hope autumn comes to cool it off a bit and give you some much needed rain. Blessings to you

  4. How exciting that you have another little one almost here! I am so enjoying our first granddaughter. She visited us last weekend with my daughter and we had the best time. Hope you’re having a great week, Terri.
