Welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays Link up. I have had a good week and I hope you have too.
The weeks seems to be going by very quickly and the list in my head of things to do is not getting that much shorter, although I did sort out my linen press – knock that off the to-do list!!!
Last Monday my husband and I and our younger two children travelled to visit with our No 1 daughter and her children.
We had a lovely day with them and you can see more and read more about that day here.
The rest of the week passed in a bit of a blur, but we did manage to start on Christmas cards and did all the other general things that seem to take up our days.
No 2 daughter and son had their piano exams this morning and it sounds like they went really well. This is no 2 daughters 3rd exam but was the first one for no 1 son. They were a bit nervous though but that all seems to be part of it. They are both very happy that it is over now :-).
We finally got the aquaponics system up and running and ready for the fish coming next week. We have planted some vegetables too, which is very exciting for us. We have been working on this for about 12 months now.
This week I want to do some Christmas baking, fruit cakes, yo yo’s etc, then I will post some away to relatives.
I am determined to get some soap made this week and I am actually going to write a list and cross things off as I achieve them (sounds good….)
Thank you for all your link ups, I am really enjoying reading them. I am not quite finished with them all yet so I won’t do my personal favourite this week.
The top three posts were:

I want to encourage everyone this week to remember the reason for the season that is fast approaching us. I am not saying don’t give presents, or don’t have a tree or whatever else you have and do, I am just saying to remember that we celebrate Christmas because of Jesus, not santa or presents or food, but because of our Saviour.
So let’s get the link up started, please link up any posts that relate to God and christian living – especially encouraging or challenging posts, also recipes, crafts, gardening or homesteading as you call it in America and just plain old country living here in Australia.
I’d love to hear about how you celebrate Christmas, who you spend it with, do you open your homes to people who have no one???
May your week be full of God’s love and may He lead and guide you each day.
