Hey there, how’s it going. It is very cold as I am sitting here writing this. I think this day must be the coldest and dampest day so far and tomorrow is looking the same, but that’s okay because tomorrow is the first day of winter.
Again I wonder where the year is going .
I have had a good week although I have been tired, not too sure why, maybe a big weekend with family last week, has left me worn out, but it was so worth it.
I spent most of the week at home although we did go to our friends place for a sewing afternoon on Thursday. The girls probably only have another session left and they will be finished sewing their quilts. Then it will be the snipping of all the seams to come – they have made raggy quilts.
I managed to finish the dress for our daughter to wear to the Eisteddfod tomorrow and it looks great. I will post a photo next week with their results.
They are both excited, and I think a little nervous, but nerves are okay. We have had discussions about doing their best, and about how it isn’t all about winning and how they should react when they don’t win and that they should be happy when someone else wins and congratulate them. This is such a good character building exercise, and they have fun as well.
Our piglets have been weaned and we are in the process of selling them. We have sold 13 already and we have 11 left to go. Here is a picture of them in the wool shed enjoying a warm corner.
We still have a heap down the paddock to butcher and we are hoping to get this done in a couple of weeks.
Our oldest son turned 20 on Friday so Saturday night we had a special birthday tea with a couple of his friends.They seemed to have a good time and spent most of the night watching DVD’s in our lounge. It is so nice that our son has such lovely Christian young men as friends.
Okay enough about us again.
Our top three posts this week were…

Cathy’s Corner Week 6 by Debbie at Bible Fun for Kids
Thank you to everyone who linked up. I had fun reading all your posts and as usual I laughed and I cried and I learnt some new things.
I hope you all had a chance to stop by and read something new and comment on someone else’s post. This is so encouraging for others.
Well as I have said the Eisteddfod is tomorrow so we will be out all day at that. Then on Tuesday night we have our Revelation Bible Study.
We might fit in another sewing afternoon as well this week as my friend is pretty busy for the rest of the month.
On Saturday afternoon we are going on a bus trip to visit sites in relation to a certain missionary who came to this area 150 years ago. Places we will visit are where he lived, his first churches, cemeteries. We thought that this would be interesting and part of our history studies.
Well I hope that you all have a good week and that you and your family 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 xxxx
