Welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays. We have almost been up and running for a whole year. Wow where did the time go.
In our part of the world we are heading into summer and it has been quite unseasonably warm for early October. We have had a run of warm weather and now it has cooled off again, which is why we enjoy living where we do. We can get days of high temperatures but we are generally guaranteed a cool change and lovely sea breezes to help ease the heat.
I have had a rather quiet week and I must admit I am finding it hard to focus on a task for very long. I am tired and I am not sure if this is medication or just me. I will keep on trying to lengthen my concentration span each day.
I had a physio appointment this past week and she just wanted to check up how my exercises were going and how my scar was healing. The result was that everything is going well.
Our aquaponics system has been in need of more fish and my husband had met a man who catches freshwater eels and fish for a living and had asked if they could spare some fish for our system. His brother finally stopped off this week and gave us 15 odd fresh water fish. We will use these to help add manure to the system and this should really give our vegetables a boost. Hopefully they will live.
My husband took me for a walk around the place in the wheel chair the other night and it was lovely to see how everything is going. The new piglets are growing quickly and we will soon start selling them. I even got wheeled into the aquaponics hot house and the broccoli is huge now and my cauliflower plants are about a foot tall now. So they have gone from 3 inches to 12 inches in about 5 weeks.
We have started music lessons again this week, after school holidays. Both children have moved up a grade and have started new pieces and scales.
It is interesting to be about in a wheel chair and to see how it is when you can’t get into shops or toilets. We went for a drive last week and we couldn’t even get our wheel chair into a disabled toilet, just as well I could wait. This is definitely giving me lots to think about.
One of my friends works with disabled young people and she said the same. She broke her leg and had to be in a wheel chair for 6 weeks and she finally understood how her clients felt when they couldn’t get into shops and cafes.
One of the things I finished before my accident was a vest for my husband. I was really pleased with how it turned out and I think he really liked it too.We also had some births on the farm and one was a new calf born to our jersey cow. He’s a lovely little bull calf. He is much bigger now and when I can I will get some more photos for you all.
I have spent some time scrapbooking this week. I am endeavouring to do an album for each grandchild to give to them when they are 18 or 21. I think in hindsight this may be a huge undertaking, but I am determined to give it a go.
Okay, onto our link up…

Thank you everyone for taking the time to link up. I apologise that I am not able to comment on all your posts, but please don’t give up on me.
This week my husband and I are off to the specialist in Geelong to see what we do next with my leg. Our younger two children are staying with good friends which is nice and I am sure they will have a lovely time.
I think our Revelation study is on this week too and I have really missed that, so hopefully we will be able to go.
How are all you going? I hope you are all well.
Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
Blessings to you all my dear friends. xxxx

Thankso much for hosting!
Thank you Debbie, blessings to you this week.
Just wanted to stop and say hello, my friend. I do trust your leg will continue to heal, and soon you will be back on your feet. I can’t imagine how frustrating all of this must be for you. So thankful your husband was able to take you out to see the new happenings! God bless you and keep you in His care and restore perfect health to you. 🙂
Thank you so much Cheryl for stopping by, your comment made me smile and I appreciate the thought. Hope all is well with you and your family. Blessings dear friend.
Thank you for featuring the Art of Home-Making Mondays this week 🙂
My pleasure Jes, have a great week. Blessings
Your husband’s vest is just tremendous! Glad to hear that you are getting out and about — give yourself time to heal. Blessings!
Thank you so much Michele for your comment and for stopping by. Sitting around is quite difficult but you are right allowing myself to heal is very important. Blessings to yout his week.
I totally understand what you are going thru – broke my leg in 2006 and was housebound for three months, plus it really took a full year to feel I could walk the same… I felt the same difficulty in focusing (I think those meds from the hospital have long lasting effects) but it will get better! Praying for speedy recovery and healing – so glad you have your husband to take you around! Blessings to you!
Thank you so much Pam for sharing your story with me, and your recovery process. My family is being absolutely wonderful in their care for me and there are many benefits that are coming from me being laid up. Thank you for your kind word and encouragement. Blessings
Congratulations on your one year blog anniversary !!! I always enjoy reading what is happening on the farm. Soooo glad that you seem to be mending. It sounded like you had a very bad break – or I guess it was several breaks to your leg. It is so hard to be on the taking end of help isn’t it. But it sounds like you have a wonderful family and friends that are helping you through this hard situation. Pray that you will soon be up and around. Blessings.
Thank you so much Rebecca for your encouraging and kind words. I am learning so much through this time, hopefully patience being one of the greatest things!!! Thank you for your prayer and thoughts as well. Blessings
