Welcome back to Good Morning Mondays this week, and guess what??? it is our 12 month anniversary of the link up.52 weeks, wow I am amazed at how quickly it has gone by and I am also blessed by the friendships that I have made just through this link up.Thank you to everyone of you who continually stop by and link up your posts and thank you for sticking with me, even when I had to go off line for a few weeks.
You are all amazing and that shows through in your posts and your kindness.
I am looking forward to continuing this link up and maybe doing something different in the new year (I’m not sure what yet).
Like last week, this week has been quiet, but that’s okay. On Monday I was tired from the weekend and I kept my leg up for most of the day.
My husband and I went to our Revelation Study on Tuesday night and although we were tired we really enjoyed it. We are nearly finished the book and we hope to get it done by Christmas and we are all looking forward to studying something new next year. We have such a lovely group of people who come along, and we have such wonderful discussions.
Wow next year is only a couple of months away. We have a lot happening before then. We have my husbands 50th birthday party and another few birthdays and then of course Christmas and New Year.
It has been a tradition each New Year that we host a bbq for some of the people at church. We normally invite mainly the older generation (our parents age) and we really enjoy getting together with them. They are so nice to talk to and have so much wisdom. Our younger children and their father normally do a musical item and with our No 2 son practicing his harmonica, I am sure it will be good this year.
Our No 2 son has started breeding meal worms. My husband bought some at our local pet food store and he was going to feed them to the fish but I remembered a post by Mindie at Born Again Farm Girl about breeding them. My husband did a bit more research and he has changed it about a bit to suit what we can get here and the ones we bought have already started to turn into the pupae stage. Very exciting and a great science project.
Our aquaponics system is going really well at the moment and my cauliflowers are coming to head which is great. The silverbeet that I planted months ago is still growing and we keep picking off it. Our No 2 daughter has become an expert at sauteing it with garlic and butter and it is a great side dish to the lasagnas that we have been blessed with.
Below is a picture of the silverbeet and carrot bed. The carrots are looking great and it will be interesting to see how big they grow.We are hoping that this system will supply our daily vegetable needs during the year and that hopefully it will grow tomatoes and salad vegetables year round.
Okay enough about us, onto our link up….

I am off to see the physio this week and it will be interesting to see what he has to say and hopefully my movement has improved and increased.
I am thinking we will start making Christmas Cards this week also so that we have them done and ready to go.

Have a blessed week and may you feel God’s love surrounding you.
