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

Have you all had a good week, is it snowing? is it hot? We’re only a few weeks off summer and we’ve had some frosts and wet weather again and it’s been cold. It’s looking at warming up next week which will be pleasant again.

We’ve had a good, busy and productive week again, and even took a day off to go for a drive. On Monday we headed down to Warrnambool for breakfast and Bunnings and a drive down to the beach. It wasn’t swimming weather and the tide was in so the beach had almost disappeared but it was nice to have a look any way.

I always enjoy driving down this beach road, it is so pleasant looking. The waves were pounding on the beach, you can’t really see that in this picture but it was very rough.

We got some more vegetable seeds at Bunnings and I got them in on Saturday afternoon because it was just too cold and wet on Wednesday and then we were busy the rest of the week.

My husband got some seedlings planted in his garden out the front and put in tomatoes and pumpkins, cucumbers and zucchinis and here below you can see the potatoes that are coming up in the hay.We are doing a few experiments this year and it’ll be interesting to see how they all go. The Magpies are giving my new seedlings a hard time and I hardly get them in the ground in the raised beds and they have pulled them out. It’s slightly (actually is is very much) frustrating but we’ve got netting to put over it all now and I did that this weekend too.

We’ve got new piglets due any day now and the last lot are in the woolshed with their mum and they look great. These lot are so cute and are growing quite nicely.The most exciting thing to happen this week was that our no 2 daughter got a puppy. Buster is his name and he is a Red Heeler, Border Collie cross and he is very cute. Our daughter is so excited and she’s doing a good job looking after him and practicing her dog training skills on him.The rest of the week was the usual stuff, bible studies, meeting our friends to read the bible, music lessons, and family lunch on Sundays.  It is certainly busy the last 3 days of the week.

We also had book group and did some sewing for Days 4 Girls on Thursday morning.

Phew, that’ll do, onto our link up…

Our top 3 this week were…Pearl Onions by Mrs Kringle’s Kitchen Dear Parents: Kindness Begins With You by An Ordinary Mom’s Musings15 Ways to Help a Depressed Husband or Wife by Dr Michelle Bengtson

Thank you everyone for stopping by, I hope you have been blessed by your visit.

This coming week is much the same as the last, which is fine. The first few days home for me and then Bible Study Wednesday night. Thursday we are doing a whole day sewing which will be great to see where we are up to and how much more we need to do.

Friday is our busy day out with both of us having Bible Studies and meeting with friends to study the Bible one to one. Saturday is music lessons and then Sunday church.

All of our studies, talks and book group have been leading us back to God’s word and the importance of our relationship with Jesus and immersing ourselves in scripture. More and more I’m encouraged to memorise scripture and then bring it back to mind when I need to, in the empty times of dishes or washing or mundane tasks.

Are you encouraged this way? What scriptures do you find good ones to memorise??

Well have a great week my friends and see you next week.

May God bless you xxx

  1. I’ve been memorizing Lamentations 3:21-26, and it has been a great encouragement to me.
    I always enjoy reading here. Thanks for news from the family and seasonal goings on. Also appreciated the Pavlova Picture with our daughter on Instagram! It reminded me that my youngest son made a pavlova when he was in middle school as part of a geography unit we were doing. It was fun to have the kids find a recipe from the area we were studying and than make it themselves.
    Blessings to you!

    1. Thank you Michele for sharing your scripture memorization, my daughter put me onto an app on my phone called Scripture Typer and it’s really helping me. What a great idea to get your children to make something from a country you are studying, I might borrow that one, thank you. Have a great weekend and I appreciate your visit. Blessings

    1. Hey Nicki, they weren’t bad though I’m not sure the children were really keen. Our oldest thought they’d go great in a salad or as mix with dips and sausage and stuff like that. I must put an update on IG. Thanks and blessings

  2. The new pup is adorable! We’ve had border collies before and they have the greatest temperament. Looks like your daughter is already in love!
    Thanks so much for the feature. I pray it encourages someone who has a depressed husband or wife.

    1. Thanks Dr Michelle, I’m sure many will benefit from your wisdom. The pup is a very welcome addition to her life and is fitting in not to badly, it does like taking shoes though… Have a great weekend. Blessings xxx

  3. It’s turned bitter winter for us in the southern US this week. We only had about two days of fall before winter came. ha. But not to worry; our hot weather will return. Buster is adorable! Your daughter looks very excited and happy. 🙂

    1. Hey Lisa, sometimes the seasons really blend and you miss one in particular, sounds like winter has really descended for you. It’s officially summer today and has been warm but there’s a change coming tonight and it looks like spring again, all good. Thanks and blessings

  4. I just found your site and am tickled to see a Highland Steer. We used to raise them and found their funny looks (like something out of Star Wars) entertaining. We’re also just getting started with trying straw bale gardening. Well, actually, we’re collecting bales and doing research – we just got 3-5 inches of snow, so the actual gardening will have to wait about 5 months.
    Thanks for hosting this linky party.

    1. Hi Kim, we love the Highlands, they are a great breed and especially suited to our small farm. Our straw bale gardening is going well and it’s a great idea, keep on collecting and I look forward to hearing how your’s go. Thanks and blessings

  5. Hello,
    I haven’t seen a post from you for a long time. I’m just checking in to see if you’re alright. If you need prayer, I’ll be happy to do so.
    Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage,

    P.S. I respond best by email.
