GOOD MORNING MONDAYS #35

Well howdy all and welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays. I hope you have all had a good week.

What a week it has been and we have enjoyed time with family and friends.

Monday night my daughter and I cooked for the Gideons. That went very well and I think that they liked the food. I served them a beef and vegetable casserole and a mild chicken curry with rice, then apple crumble and cream for dessert.

It was good and we had leftovers for the next days lunches, which was very handy.

My husband went fishing with Mr H and his son-in-law, they didn’t catch anything other than colds,but I think they had a good time together.

Friday morning the children had a drive in our brigades fire truck with their father, you can tell by their faces it was fun.

During the winter months each member (who can drive) is rostered to take the truck for runs and to make sure that all the equipment is working properly. This week was my husbands turn. CFA stands for Country Fire Authority.

Our No 2 daughter turned 10 this week and boy she is growing up fast. I don’t know where the time has gone.

Friday night we had some friends over and our son-in-law and daughter and their girls as well. We enjoyed a lovely meal together and the children had a great time as well.

Our daughter is the girl on the right and the one on the left is her sewing buddy.

It is always good to spend time with these families.

Saturday we spent the day with our daughter and her girls as our son-in-law had an appointment in Melbourne. We had a lovely day just taking it easy and chatting. The girls were really tired and slept well in the afternoon, and I must admit I could have gone with them.

Here is our youngest granddaughter. She is really a character and we are developing a great relationship with her.

This is our oldest granddaughter and she had a lot of fun with her uncle and aunt. They pushed her around in the wheel barrow for ages.

We had some disappointments this week with our cattle, loosing two calves as they were born, we thankfully had one born fit and healthy

She looks like a little teddy bear when she dried up.

My husband and No 1 son butchered a cow today so we will have a freezer full again in a couple of weeks, the freezer is almost empty.

I have been having lots of internet issues this past week and it just wasn’t going well enough for me to read all the post you linked up, so I apologise again.

I know I have said it before but I will say it again, thank you to you all for taking the time to link up and leave comments. I am really enjoying our new friendships and I love getting to know you all.

I don’t know whether the internet problem is a weather thing or something else, but I hope to be on top of it this coming week, as I really do enjoy reading all the posts.

So onto our link up.

Our top three posts for this week…

Well done ladies and thank you again to everyone else who took the time to link up. If you didn’t get a chance to read these posts, pop over when you can. You will really enjoy them.

This coming week is looking cold and busy again. The children have music exams in about 7 weeks, so we are working hard on their technical work and site reading stuff. This can be very challenging but I think we have plenty of time to get on top of it.

We have our Revelation study on Tuesday night and then our children are doing another Eisteddfod this time in Warrnambool on Thursday morning.

It is good for them to play in front of people and this time they are playing with some other homeschooling friends that live down there. It will be wonderful to catch up with them as we haven’t seen them for ages.

Our son-in-law and daughter and girls are coming this time and then they are staying with us for the night, so we will get to see them again and this is such a blessing.

I only got 1/2 my sewing done this past week, so I need to get more of that finished and I am starting a schedule for doing school and I am trying to be more organised.

Thank you for your prayers for our friends last week, Mrs E didn’t have to have a new stent put in and Mr H is going along okay. God is so good.

I have another request, if you could please pray for Mr G, he had a melanoma removed and has been called back to the surgeon in the morning. Please pray that God will be with him and his family.

I hope you all have a great week and that you will be blessed.

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.”

Love to you all xxxxx
