Hey there, welcome to another Good Morning Mondays. Another week, another lot of activities has passed and we have a new week and new beginnings happening.
I enjoy the beginning of the new week almost as much as I look forward to the weekend. I look forward to planning what I am going to achieve and the school I am going to get done. Sometimes I don’t achieve anything I want to, but that’s okay, life isn’t about things but about people.
This past week we had our Revelation Bible Study on Tuesday night. This was a good night and we enjoy getting into God’s word and studying and discussing scriptures.
I bottled some apple juice this week and this was the first time I have done this. We wanted to see what it was like and we were really pleased with the results. We had it with our Mothers Day lunch mixed with lemonade and it was delicious. I also managed to can some ground meat which will be great for the colder months.
We had a sewing afternoon this week and because my husband was already there doing some work we went to our friends house for lunch and enjoyed a lovely meal together before getting into sewing. The girls’ quilts are coming along nicely and we might even finish sewing them next time. Then we have to snip them and put them in the dryer to fluff them up.
Here are the girls at their sewing machines, they get on so well and it is a pleasure to see them have such a lovely relationship.
Saturday morning the children had their music lessons and my husband had to work, so I took them in, did some shopping and came home.
Here they are sitting at their teachers piano. They had just finished playing their duet and as soon as they finished they both turned to her to see what she thought. Their playing is coming along really well.
I hope you all had a lovely Mothers Day yesterday. Here are the cards our youngest two made me, they were so lovely and the stickers were just so cute. The inside of the cards were filled with words of love. I am definitely going to keep these in a special place.
The weather has been quite cold and damp this past week and here is our front yard below. I really enjoy this season and I just love the way the grass greens up and everything looks fresh and damp.
It isn’t easy for my husband though when he has to work out in the cold so I make sure that the wood stove is going all the time to keep the house warm and inviting when he comes home.
Once again I am sorry, but I didn’t get all the posts read this week. I want to thank you all for linking up and for those of you who comment. I am blessed by the friendships that we are developing and I am always interested in what you are doing and how you live.
So our top three posts this week were…
A Well-Planned Pantry by Jayne at Adventures at Tiny Toadstool CottageToday at the Cottage…Living and Loving This Life a Little at a Time by Laura at Harvest Lane Cottage
The Waiting, the Wedding, and the Wonder of His Mercy–Trusting Him When Prayer Goes Unanswered by Rebekah at Ready to be Offered
I don’t want to pick a favourite when I haven’t read them all but this post below was really good.Preparing for the Teen Years by Gwen at An Island Family by Grace
If you haven’t gotten to read these posts, pop over if you get the time and you will surely be blessed.
I’ve got a quieter week this week and I am looking forward to being home. Tuesday night we are selling some sheep so I will probably go with my husband to deliver them to the sale yards.
Then we might go and visit our friends Mr and Mrs H. Mr H had an unfavourable report this past week and again I ask for your prayers for him and his family. He has more cancer spots on his liver and his lymph nodes. He has an amazing attitude and we are so blessed to be able to share this journey with him and his family.
I hope you all have a great week and you are enjoying each moment with your family.
