Hey there everyone, welcome to another Good Morning Mondays. What a wonderful season winter is and we have one more month to go until spring comes.
Where we live the weather is always variable even in summer, which can be quite good. We are about an hour from the coast so we often get lovely sea breezes in the evenings in summer which takes away the heat.
It has finally gotten wet here and there is heaps of water lying around. Our firebreaks look very boggy. (a firebreak is an area between our fence and the nature strip that we either plow or spray, so that there is no growth, and then it inhibits fire crossing it).
It has been cold outside and our wood stove is pumping out the heat, some days it doesn’t seem enough, but all you need to do is step outside and you know that it is warm inside.
We have had a good week and started it off with the Christianity 101 course at our church on Monday night. I think there was possibly 3 people there who were not Christian, some others who were maybe nominal and then quite a few from church who attended to support the others. It was quite an interesting evening and the discussions that we had at our table were good. Discussing God and His ways and His word is always good.
We had earlier music lessons this week because we went to Melbourne over the weekend. The children had their exams this afternoon and I am sure they are glad they are over, and I know they are looking forward to getting new pieces next week.
On Friday afternoon we headed to Melbourne to a family conference and spent the night there and all day Saturday. It is great to be together with like minded Christian people who want to have strong family relationships with God at the center. We caught up with some old and made some new friends and the children had a great time.
They had separate character training for them and character training the way they did it was fun.
I took some photos on our journey. The picture below was just before we arrived at our destination. The moon was so big and full, it was just beautiful.
Seems that every major city has a big wheel and Melbourne is no different. This picture was taken as we were driving past on the freeway.’
I was born and raised in Brisbane which is a major capital city but it didn’t take me long to love the country and living there and I must admit I find it difficult to visit the city, but the trip was well worth it.
The farm and animals seemed to be okay while we were away which is good and we have just ordered some tomato seedlings from our daughter who is going to grow a couple hundred for us to put in our hot house.
Now my husband is making plans to build this hothouse which will be portable and able to be moved each year onto new ground. I have also found a nursery where we can buy cheaper fruit trees, so next month we are hoping to get a few to add to our orchard.
With winter coming to an end and spring just around the corner there is always heaps to plan and build and think about.
Okay onto our link up.
Our top three posts this week were…
Thank you dear friends for stopping by and linking up. I didn’t quite get all the posts read this week with being away so I do apologise. I am looking forward to seeing what you have for us this week.
This week is going to be reasonably quiet. Monday we are in town doing banking and groceries and Tuesday night is our Revelation Study.
We are hopefully going to catch up with our son-in-law, daughter and their girls sometimes this week and we are all definitely looking forward to that time.
Our children have no music lessons this weekend so we will hear about their results later in the week from their teacher. They will be looking forward to their music lessons the following week when they get some new pieces, that is always exciting and I am looking forward to having some new tunes to hum in my head..
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
You will find me linked up at some of these great blogs.
