Welcome to another Good Morning Mondays Link Up. How has your week been??
Thanks to everyone of you who faithfully stop by here each week and link up, and also welcome to any newbies that stop by. I am so enjoying reading the posts and getting to know you all.
I have had a good week although it has been cold and wet. My routine sort of went out the window earlier in the week due to my husband being home for a couple of days. Time spent with dad is far more important than any lessons we can have.
Tuesday dad decided to take us to Warrnambool to Flagstaff Hill which is a maritime museum and it is set up like a maritime village.
Below is a picture of the village from the front door.
When we got there my husband started talking to the lady at the counter about the Historical Society and some family history stuff, so we didn’t actually go into the village but headed around to the Historical Society to find our more information about his family.
It was probably a good idea not going in as it was freezing and wet and we will most likely go again when the weather is more favourable.
After the History Society we headed out to the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory for lunch and a walk around their museum. We enjoyed looking at the old artefacts and I especially like the dairy and sewing ones.
We had a great day and arrived home tired but happy.
I am excited too because we have gotten our milk separator all cleaned up and are hopefully going to be able to separate our milk next week so that I can make butter.
I will only do this once a week as the milk isn’t any good for cheese after the cream has been removed, so the puppies or piglets or chickens will get this milk.
The rest of the week I will make cheddar cheese and some feta. I have made some cheddar this past week and it is tucked away nicely in the cupboard, maturing away. I made a big batch of feta as well and that is great in salads, on pizzas or mince dishes.
Our oldest son spent the week away working with some friends, so the house was rather quiet without him and his puppies were very annoying. They destroyed one of my pot plants (I only have two) and have now been banned from the back veranda.
Saturday morning we had music lessons and now have only two weeks to go until exams. We have to keep on with the practice for the next two weeks, and I am sure that their hard work will pay off.
I had a friend pop out from town on Saturday afternoon which was lovely. I haven’t seen this friend for months so we had a lovely chat and catch up. She is also keen on being self sufficient and farming stuff and I call her the chook whisperer. She is amazing how she can get eggs to hatch in the incubator, far better than I can. I am that bad that my husband has now taken over the incubating, so hopefully we will get more chickens now.
Today, Sunday was a busy day but lovely. We had bible study and church this morning and then we went to friends for an afternoon bible study. We used to get together a few years ago, but life got busy with babies and children and plain old life, so it was nice to be able to sit around the word of God together.
Okay, onto our linkup….
This week we had our top 5 posts
Thank you to everyone who linked up, I really appreciate all of you. I didn’t quite get every post read but what I did get to I really enjoyed.
This week coming we have our Revelation Bible Study on Tuesday night and we are looking forward to that because we haven’t gotten together for quite a few weeks now.
We have a funeral on Thursday afternoon and music lessons on Saturday morning. The rest of the week will be spent at home doing school, music practice and I might even do some gardening depending on the weather, and I have some knitting projects that I want to start and finish.
I look forward to hearing from you all again this week and I pray that your days are blessed.
Love to you all my friends. xxxx
