Welcome everyone to another Good Morning Mondays. We have now been going for 39 weeks and I look forward to this link up each week.

I enjoy all your posts and I know I have said it before, I am learning so much.

It has been a quiet week here and I have been home for most of it. Our younger 2 children had been unwell earlier in the week but are much better now.

My husband and I were invited to a friends house to have a look at some natural cleaning products. I was asked to bring some home made cheese so my husband and I decided to smoke some of our home made pork sausages to see how they would taste.

They were brilliant and very delicious, just like bought kabana.  Here is a photo below of how they looked when they came out of the smoker. They went great with the home made cheese.

We have done a couple batches now and they really don’t last long at all. They are great for a lunch time snack too.

We had a new arrival on the farm a week ago and it has taken me this long to get a photo. This is a picture of our new alpaca, he looks very regal doesn’t he! Unfortunately he isn’t too friendly yet, but we will see how we all go together.


Here is a picture of our No 1 son’s fox terrier puppies. They are so cute.DSC_1714[1]It has been a good week to catch up and hopefully get motivated to do some serious schooling and music work this coming week.

Now onto our link up.

Our top three posts this week were…

Thank you to everyone who linked up, the posts are excellent and I enjoy the mix from devotional to farming to cooking.

Like I said before, this week I need to get into some school and music practice. The children have exams in three weeks and we really need to work on scales and technical work, which we all love.

I think I am home all week again, and I need to prune some roses and make some curtains (still).

How have you all been?? I am looking forward to hearing from you again this week and I pray that you are going good.

I hope you all have a great week and that you are blessed as you enjoy your summer holidays or as we are the winter weather.

May God bless you all my friends. xxxx

    1. Once again it was my pleasure Ifeoma and I appreciate that you take the time to link up. The puppies are really cute but I haven’t been able to get them to come out yet. The other puppies we have are now at the annoying puppy stage of chasing chickens, chewing boots and the likes, just as well they are cute!!! Thanks for your comment and I hope you have a great week. Blessings

    1. Yes you are right Maria, I don’t think he would be happy, I’m not quite sure he is happy here yet, but he’ll get used to us. Thanks for stopping by each week and linking up. Have a great week. Blessings

  2. I’m so sorry to hear your little ones were ill, but so thankful God healed them and they are doing better. The puppies and the alpaca are just adorable!!!! So thankful for you and the update, sweet friend. 🙂

    1. Thank you Cheryl for your concern for our children, I appreciate your heart for our family. Most of our puppies are cute, the little ones are good but the bigger ones are getting annoying :-), chewing stuff etc. I really enjoy the link up party and learning heaps of stuff. Thank you for constantly supporting me and linking up and your kind comments. Blessings to you this week. xxxx

  4. Hello Gorgeous! I love stopping by your party each week. We would love it if you would stop by our party that starts tonight at 7 pm. We pin and tweet every masterpiece! Lou Lou Girls

    1. I read this reply to my husband Angie and he laughed that your husband would short out the keyboard. It’s just as well we can’t smell things over the internet because they smell so GOOD. The little puppies are cute, but the big puppies are getting a little bit naughty. Thanks for stopping by, have a great week. Blessings xxxx

      1. LOL well, he’d do the same thing over the chocolate cake too. 🙂 If it weren’t 110 heat index today I’d jump on in on the baking. Maybe he’ll settle for chocolate syrup over coconut flakes. 🙂

        1. Hey Angie, I think chocolate syrup over coconut flakes sounds good, maybe try that for breakfast. Sounds hot over there and we are having a frost in the morning, so hard to imagine. Blessings dear friend.

          1. I heard you all are having a cold snap there (not sure of your exact location but heard Australia is getting an unusually cold season). We’re in the normal July heat, real temps of mid 90’s (35 or so C) to heat index (what it feels like to the skin with the humidity involved) of 110 or so (43.3 C). Praise the Lord for air conditioning and lots of cold water!

          2. We live in Western Victoria about an hour from the South Australian border. It has been cold and thankfully wet this past week, but it has been quite dry up until then. It is hard to imagine you have such heat but I am sort of glad that it isn’t that hot here at the moment. Yes I agree praise the Lord for air conditioning and cold water, and wood heaters and hot water. Blessings to you Angie.

  5. i LOVE your regal alpaca. Praying he becomes friendly as he becomes part of your family. Love reading what’s going on at your farm. Makes me feel welcome there. Hugs! Susan

    1. Thank you so much Elizabeth for stopping by each week and linking up. Your kind words really encourage and bless me. I hope you are having a great week. Blessings to you and your lovely family. xxxx

  6. I love linking with you 🙂 Thanks for sharing on the (mis)Adventures Mondays Blog Hop. I can’t wait to see what you share this week!
