Hi there everyone, and welcome back to Darling Downs Diaries and our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.

I’ve had a quiet week at home this past week and we have been getting some school done and music practice.

My husband has been busy working when it hasn’t been too cold and wet. Most of his work is out doors and in sheds which is handy when it is raining, and it has been quite wet this past week.

He even managed to fix our car saving us around $1300. The fact that he can fix things like this is such a blessing for us because it would be difficult to scrape together that much money. God knows and has given my husband these abilities, it’s amazing really.

Apart from school I have been doing the usual household chores. Washing is hard to get dry at the moment so it is being rotated from outside into the clothes horse inside in front of the wood stove.

I’ve been darning socks, I really enjoy this job, but I think this sock below is almost past it. I was challenged to do it though!!20160708_133847Our fruit trees have arrived and are waiting to be planted. We got nectarines, peaches and apples.  Our orchard is in the front of our house in the paddock against the road. They will be a great fire break in the summer because we hope to get the cooch grass growing out there eventually and keep it mowed and green.20160708_121039At the moment my husband is trying to mound the dirt so that we can plant them, but it’s pretty wet out there. That’s a job for the coming week.

Our daughter had been busy knitting a scarf and finished it last night, she was so pleased to get it done, now to teach her how to crochet!


Okay onto our link up…

Thank you everyone for linking up, I hope you were blessed by the variety of posts.

Well my young friend and I are now studying Prayer and I think that this is the topic I will use for our next Wednesday Wisdom Searching.

I’ve mentioned before that I have been reading Fervent and I am enjoying this book immensely. It is challenging to go through the scriptures on prayer and then you get to the one in Thessalonians that says that we should pray without ceasing.  That’s where I’m up to.

Okay this coming week is another quiet one at home, but we will have piano lessons this coming Saturday as school holidays will be finished.

What are you up to at the moment, and where is God leading you???

Just a reminder about our new monthly link up…

wisdom search4

This month’s topic is WORSHIP and what that means to you and how you live it.

Also you don’t need to link up if you don’t have a post on the topic, but you can leave your thoughts in the comments section.  I would love to hear from you.

Our new link up for Wednesday Wisdom Searching will commence on the 20th July, so stayed tuned.

Have a blessed week my friends and may God lead and guide you in your everyday life.

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 xxxx

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my Thrifty Week post! It is such an honor.

    It’s been very quiet at my house. Two of the three children I still have at home have been gone. My daughter at camp and my son working.

    I like your daughter’s scarf. She looks pleased.

    Be happy and enjoy your winter time,
    Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage
