Welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays Link up. (even though I am writing this on Sunday night)
As I am sitting here my husband is on our front verandah picking a tune on his banjo that we got him for Christmas. It was very warm today and now with the evening advancing the heat has passed and the storm clouds are rolling by and the breeze has cooled off.
It is a lovely evening and I enjoy listening to him trying to work out how to play it. It proves that you are never too old to learn either in the physical or the spiritual. An hour ago he was practicing the accordian with our youngest son. ( I was going to take a photo of them but he was in his pajamas and he wouldn’t have been impressed with that photo being seen by too many).
My husband has a great ear for music and so do our children (which frustrates their music teacher). Graeme can pick up his accordian and play any tune he knows, this is a real gift. We are so blessed that the children have inherited this trait from him, but we still continue to teach them to read music so they have the benefits of both.
This week has been good and warm (I’m not complaining) and the vegetables are growing. We have had some rain too which is always a blessing. Below is a picture of our driveway and the puddles.
We haven’t really done anything too exciting this week, we have done school and piano and I finished the quilt I was working on. It has been too long in the making, now I just have to send it off. I will post pictures once my friend has received it.
This week we have our Revelation bible study and Ash Wednesday service. We have a 50th birthday party on Friday night and a 1 year old birthday and dedication party on Sunday afternoon. Hopefully in there somewhere we will catch up with our daughter and family when they return from their trip. Oh and it’s my birthday on Friday too.
I hope your past week has been good and you achieved all you wanted to.
That’s about all from me so onto our link up.

If you haven’t had time to look at these, just click on the title and pop over you will be really blessed.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who took the time to link up. To those of you who have been linking up for ages, and to those of you who have just started I am so blessed that you take the time.
I have been challenged this past week with finding an excitement with our schooling and I want to pass that onto you all. If you don’t homeschool that’s fine, I suppose it is more about being there when our kids are around.
Blessings to you all this week, may you see the hand of God in your lives.
