Hi all, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
How has your week been?? What have you been doing???
On Monday we said goodbye to our no 1 son. He has headed back up north to work for 6 months. It is always hard to say goodbye and the house feels very quiet without him but it is good for him to spread his wings and stand on his own feet. He is an amazing young man and we are so blessed to be his parents.We will see him again before the 6 months is up but I’m not sure when. We have a new grandbaby due in 4 weeks so maybe around then.
The vegetable patch is still producing lovely fresh tasting tomatoes and we bag them into 1 kg lots and sell them out the front of our property at our roadside stall. We also sell our eggs as well.
The children had their piano lessons early this week as we were away for the weekend and the pressure is on. There is only 6 more lessons until the first Eisteddfod. They have been practicing hard this week and have almost got their duet together. They really enjoy doing their duet and they have a lot of fun (most of the time).
We had our oldest granddaughters 4th birthday on Friday night and I managed to get this rag quilt finished for her. I was really pleased with how it turned out but it took me ages to clean up all the fluff, hopefully it won’t give her mother too much grief.
It’s made from velvet that I bought from a women who decided that she didn’t have time to use it. I was blessed to get it at a great price. I didn’t add any wadding because the fabric is thick enough and I had to use the walking foot on my machine.
On Saturday we headed to Melbourne with our son-in-law and no 1 daughter for our niece’s wedding. It was a great road trip and we had a ball together. We came home on Sunday and picked up the children from the good friends that were looking after them. The children had a great time as well and enjoy their young friends and playing with them.
Because we were away I didn’t get to do the top 3 but it will be back next week.
Thank you everyone for taking the time to link up and leave me encouraging comments, they bless me so much.
This week we have a 50th birthday party so I’m busy finishing off a rag rug as a present. It was great to have so much car time over the weekend and it’s nearly done.
Then the rest of the week is at home, schooling, music and I’m hopefully going to be able to get some vegetable seedlings in. The raised bed building came to a halt when the tractor broke down, but my husband will have it fixed this coming week so we can finish the beds.
It’s been damp and cool but the moisture is welcome and everything is so nice and green.
I apologise that I haven’t put up my next post on marriage and again I hope to get it out this week.
With things going wrong all around us and living in an very ungodly world we have to remember to trust God in all things, even the smallest of needs, He cares for them too.
Have a great week!!!
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 my friends xxxx

You are very busy!
You have a handsome son there. What does he do in the north?
The quilt looks nice and cozy for you upcoming winter 😀. Velvets are so soft and sweet to touch!
We are just getting our tomatoes in the ground as it has been very wet. Normal for spring here…still annoying wading the mud but we will wish for it in July.
Hope you have a great week!
Hey there Mrs Abella, it’s always a pleasure to hear from you. Thank you, our son is normally a shearer but up north they mainly do lamb marking and crutching. Thank you the quilt is lovely and soft and I was so pleased with how it turned out, I still have another one to make for our other granddaughter. It must be exciting getting your vegetables planted I’m praying for a bumper crop for you. Have a great weekend. Blessings
It is so fun to read about your family life. I’m sorry you had to say goodbye to your son for awhile but what a blessing he is to you 🙂 Thank you for hosting this party. Blessings.
Hi Patricia, it’s nice to hear from you. Thank you, our son is a blessing and we miss him when he is gone, but it was easier this year. I’m glad you enjoy the link up. Have a great weekend. Blessings
You are right, it is important to remind ourselves when there are so many big, scary and tragic things going on that God still cares about the small things. In the midst of it all we need to remember that “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.”
Thank you for hosting this link up. 🙂
Hey there Mary, thank you for your comment and for stopping by each week and linking up. Have a great weekend. Blessings
So sorry you have to lose your son for 6 months, but I’m glad he is an amazing young man and you don’t have to worry about that! And that you’ll get to see him in between. How exciting to be welcoming a new grandbaby soon! I love the rag quilt. Makes me want to cuddle up under it on a cold winter night.
Hi there Lisa, you are such an encouragement to me each week, thank you, and thank you for your lovely and kind words. We are excited about the new grandbaby and we are looking forward to it. Have a great weekend. Blessings
We are expecting a grandson at the same time as your grand baby! This will be our sixth!
Hey there Elizabeth, that’s exciting a new grandson, they don’t know what they are having so we’ll just have to wait and see, but that’s okay. This is our fourth, congrats on your sixth. Blessings
Hello from Alaska,
I am sure your granddaughter will treasure that quilt for years to come! I just found your lovely blog. Do you have a Facebook page or am I missing the link somewhere? That is how I usually keep track of the blogs I like to follow.
All the best, Amy
Hi Amy, welcome from Australia and thank you for your kind words. I don’t have a Facebook page but I am on Instagram @country_homeschooling_grandma. I would love to hear more about your life over there, I find it fascinating. So I’ll keep track of you too. Blessings
