Hi everyone, and welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays.
Do you feel that the moment we hit December that time just goes into overdrive and is passing even more quickly???
It seems to me when December 1 passes it is January 1 before we know it and I am determined that I am not going to get stressed out over Christmas because that isn’t really the point.
If I don’t get all my cards done and I don’t get all the baking done that I would have liked, I am going to be OKAY with that.
Of course this year I am rather inhibited with movement and really probably not done too much anyway, but I am trying to let it go.
This Christmas we are going to our son-in-law and daughters place which will be wonderful, so the pressure is really off. Last year we had quite a few here and it was a wonderful time with family and extended family as well.
This past week has been quite slow for me. We had such a big weekend that I have really taken it easy and have managed to get a bit of a cold too, but that is nearly gone now.
We had our final Revelation Study on Tuesday night and we are looking at studying the Pastoral Letters next year which sounds very interesting. We have such a lovely group and we have come to appreciate each one of them very much.
We had our local show on Saturday and our no 1 son went in the shearing competition again and came 1st in the Intermediate Section and no 2 daughter did some baking and received two 3rd places.
I managed to get around on my gopher and this was quite a bit of fun and it was quite warm too so it was nice to be able to park in the shade.
Our vegetable patch is going well although we have had a couple days of hot dry wind which has been giving the tomato plants a hammering, but they are holding up well. We are still waiting for some pumpkins to germinate and that should be any day now.
The aquaponics is going well and the tomatoes are going good in there, they look nice and strong. We have started picking some carrots as well, although they are small, they are lovely just to boil up whole.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up. I hope you were blessed by it. I am sorry that I am not getting to all your posts each week and I hope you will stick with me until I get back there.
This coming week we have a couple of BBQ’s to attend as a sort of Christmas breakup, which should be nice. Once again it doesn’t matter the reason it is always good to fellowship together.
We have our last music lesson on Saturday and also our no 2 son’s 8th birthday. He has been looking forward to his birthday for ages. I’m not sure yet what we will do, but it will be fun.
What have you got on your agenda this week, and what is your weather like??? I find it hard to imagine it snowing at the moment, when it is warm here.
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

Hi Terri, I can imagine all the busyness!
Well I look forward to having a splendid holiday! Thanks for the linkup and I am glad you are getting better!
Loads of Blessings to you
Hi Ifeoma, thank you so much for your comment and I hope and pray that you have a lovely holiday period over Christmas. In Australia this is our long summer break where the children get 6 weeks off school. We try and keep our schooling going somewhat and start back in early January. Blessings to you to my friend.
Thank you for hosting! December is too busy for me! But, we live in Memphis and the weather is great. It is mid December and we are just seeing the leaves falling off of the trees.
Hey Debbie, you sound so busy and December does seem to be a crazy month and it also sounds like autumn there. We have a warm week coming up, but we still get some nice cool evenings which make sleeping just wonderful. Thanks for stopping by, blessings to you.xxxx
How awesome to see that you’ve featured my Christmas Idea Roundup Post on the hop this week! Today I’m sharing my thoughts about Voluntary Simplicity; My quick & easy pie crust recipe; some Low-Waste Gift Wrapping ideas and how to obtain small jars for gifts. Love the hop, thanks for hosting!
Thanks so much Taylor-Made-Homestead for sharing your posts with us. They are always so easy and encouraging and I love your writing style. Have a great week. Blessings
I love to see how your produce is coming along, and am encouraged to read each week (even if I don’t have time to link-up) how you’re getting more and more mobile 🙂 .
Perhaps we will see your Christmas decorations soon?
Hi Deborah, once again it is so good to hear from you. I am going to have to let you down because we don’t do Christmas decorations. We do usually put up our nativity set and put our presents around them, but this year we are spending Christmas away from home, but I may get it out soon and store all the wrapped presents around it. Hope you and your family are well and surviving the silly season so far. Blessings and lots of love. xxxx
Terri, thanks for making the effort to be here in the midst of all your busy-ness.
Definitely my pleasure Michele, hope you are enjoying the lead up to Christmas and all that it entails. Blessings dear friend.
Thank you for featuring my post “What to do with your Thanksgiving turkey carcass”! Hope you have a lovely week and can hang on through the busyness of the season.
Hey Kathi, my pleasure in featuring your post. Have a great week too and blessings to you.
Terri, thanks for featuring my post Homosexuality: Many Voices. And thanks so much for faithfully hosting each week. Our weather here in El Paso (Texas) is still pretty nice. Cold (30 degrees or so F.) but warming up to 55 or 60 during the day. So you want a light coat in the morning and can go to lunch with a sweater or shirtsleeves. We seldom get snow, maybe once or twice a year if we’re lucky, but will get colder before it’s all said and done. Have a great week!
Hi Donna, sounds like you have lovely weather. We don’t ever get snow here, sometimes sleet. Up in the Grampians – about an hour away they can get snow on top of the highest mountain there, but we have never seen it. Have a great weekend. Blessings
