GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi there all! and welcome back to our weekly link up. How have you all been? Has your week been productive???
The first half of our week was very quiet with our no 2 daughter away with her older siblings skiing at Falls Creek. They go each year and our daughter goes with her son-in-law’s sister. That sounds confusing but we are blessed with this relationship and the fact that they take our daughter with them. They always have a great time and there was heaps of snow again this year and our daughter is getting quite good on her skis. Unfortunately for our no 1 daughter’s father-in-law, he slipped and broke a bone in his lower leg so he is in plaster for 8 weeks. If you can please pray for quick healing for him.
So it was just the 3 of us at home for 4 days and we really didn’t do much school, but we did heaps of jobs around the farm. My husband and our no 2 son have been working on a new lego creation and I believe this is as good as school. It is amazing how much this young man knows about hydraulics and motors and gears just from building lego with his dad. This is his treat while his sister is away skiing. Next year it will hopefully be his turn to go, so he’s excited about that already. It has been very wet here lately and the ground is very boggy. The raised beds are going well and the onions I thought were dead have perked up and are growing nicely. I have added a few more and there are still a few to plant this week.
The cauliflower in the nft system in the aquaponics has started to head up and that is so exciting. We didn’t know whether this would work so this is a good sign. It will be interesting to see how the head develops. I can just imagine how nice it will taste with cheesy, white sauce.Pottery was fun again on Friday and our no 2 daughter was home to join me. I brought home this little bowl that I’d made a few weeks ago and it looks really nice. I’m really happy with the colour and it is on my window sill in the kitchen with a bar of soap in it – just perfect.I was trying to turn up a cylinder this week and the three attempts I tried didn’t turn our very well. If they dry and seal I’ll have 2 unique vases and maybe a jug. They might collapse or even crack in the kiln but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Because of the weather the pottery is taking at least 2 weeks to dry out enough to fire and I’ve still got 5 bowls to trim up next week.
I got my plate with the leaves on it painted and glazed and a couple of other little bowls glazed as well. I’m not sure when they will be fired, it could be a couple of weeks yet.
Pottery has been something I have wanted to try for years and I feel very blessed that my husband has agreed to us doing it and that he stays home and looks after our son. I don’t know how long we’ll go for but I’ll cherish the time and enjoy while I can.
Saturday my husband had a men’s conference so the children and I hung around and caught up with some washing and ironing. Our no 2 daughter is still tired so she’s resting up to get back into school next week.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and linking up and sharing with us. I appreciate the fact that you take the time.
What are you up to this coming week??
We are back to school and music practice here. We have the usual bible study on Tuesday night and then pottery and music lessons later in the week.
We’ve got some seed planting to do in the hot house and more out in the garden beds outside.
I ask for your prayers as Australia comes up to a postal vote on same sex marriage. Please pray that people’s hearts will turn back to God and that the vote is “no” so that marriage stays between a man and a woman. This is a major issue in Australia at the moment and it’s so very important that we take a stand, it’s okay to vote “no”.
Okay my dear friends, I pray that you are all well and I look forward to hearing from you again this week.
Thank you all for your support and may God bless you all.
Keep on keeping on my friends…
Have a great week!!!
