GOOD MORNING MONDAYS #76

Hi there everyone and welcome back to Good Morning Mondays.

We have had a good week and time just seems to be flying past so quickly. It’s almost June and the year is almost half gone.

I have been busy moving the boys stuff out of their old room and my sewing stuff in. I have a heap (and I mean heap) of sewing and craft items, lots of fabric pieces.

I joined a quilt group on Facebook and I have been getting lots of inspiration. I found this wall hanging on the group page the other day and I think it is lovely. I would love to try and make it one day.FB_IMG_1462843160299[1]

The younger children have been helping me move the rooms around and they have been a fantastic help. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them or my husband. They all moved the beds and the quilting frame for me.

The weather has definitely cooled off enough to slow down the tomatoes. We are only getting a 1/2 a bucket every few days and they are very soft. We need to pick the pumpkins and store them now and we will probably sell some as well. We have had an amazing year with vegetables and our store house is full for the coming cold months.

Our no 2 daughter is doing a great job cooking and she made a delicious bacon and vegetable soup for tea the other night.

I am often amazed at how much our younger children can do if we train them. I wasn’t trained to really do anything around the house and this made our early married years at times very interesting. I learnt to cook when we got married so for me it is wonderful to see our daughter doing it already.

She has learnt so much since I broke my leg and she is still keen to help so we let her, she is such a blessing.

My husband has been away all weekend at his Fatherhood training course. It sounds like it is going great and he is learning lots, both from the course and from the other men involved.

Thank you again for stopping by and linking up you are all such a blessing to me.

This week we will be doing school and music practice. Our no 1 son is turning 21 in a couple of weeks and we are having a party for him so I will be starting to get my thoughts together about what we are going to do.

We will be enjoying our time with my husband after he has been away and I am sure the children will want to spend some time helping him around the place.

We have our bible study on Tuesday night and violin lessons this Wednesday.

Now that I have started spring cleaning I have a few more cupboards to do before I am finished. I would like to do these this week.

What is happening in all your lives? I would love to hear.

I think of you all often and I pray that you are all well and that God is working in your hearts and lives.

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 dear friends xxxx

    1. Hi there Lisa, I don’t know if I can manage that wall hanging but I’m going to keep it in my mind to try. I hope you are well and I appreciate your words and that you take the time to stop by. Blessings

    1. Hi there Elizabeth, my mum used to knit and sew clothes but it took me until she passed away for me to become a knitter. She tried numerous times to get me knitting but it didn’t work. When I became a grandma that was when I decided to give it a go. I hope you and your family are well. Blessings my friend.
