Hi there all! and welcome back to our weekly link up. How have you all been?  Has your week been productive???

We spent the first three days of the working week away in Ballarat at the South Street Eisteddfod. This is the last Eisteddfod for the year and was one that we hadn’t done before. It was a really good experience for us all and a sort of mini holiday.

We left on Monday and got back late Wednesday afternoon. The children did well and both came away with medals. Pictured below is them with their medals for first prize in their duet section. We are blessed by how their diligence in practice is turning out. They didn’t win every section they entered which isn’t really an issue at all. It is good to learn to not win all the time, teaches us all humility.

Before we came home we stopped at the Gold Museum to get a bit of local Australian history under our belt. It was quite interesting and it was a nice break from playing the piano.The rest of the week was on playing catch up which I finally did (with the housework) on Saturday.  We had our pottery classes again on Friday morning and we both managed to get some more bowls done on the wheel. Our other ones were still too soft to trim up and some were in the kiln and will be ready for us to glaze next week.The first ones we did were ready to come home and they turned out really nice for our first attempt. These were all hand made (not on the wheel) and were a good place to start. I really like the watery blue colour and they look lovely on our kitchen window sill. The onions that I thought wouldn’t grow are going quite nicely, although some of them haven’t survived. I’ve been given some more to plant and I will do that this coming week. I also been told it’s time to plant carrots so I’ll do that also. The weather is almost spring like at times and I’m looking forward to eating from the garden when the broccoli comes in.We were given some tickets to a local school production of Mary Poppins for Saturday night and my husband and our no 2 daughter were able to attend and really enjoyed their time together. No 2 son and I watched a dvd that he’d gotten from the library.

Okay onto our link up…

Thank you everyone for taking the time to stop by and link up, I appreciate every one of you.

Well this coming week is back to normal, school etc. It’ll be nice to get back into a routine for a little bit. Then the following week our no 2 daughter goes skiing so it’s just our no 2 son and us for 4 days.

We got new piano things to practice and gardening to do, our weekly bible study on Tuesday night and pottery and other lessons later in the week.

We are still working through Hebrews at the moment and we are still being encouraged and challenged each week. Our faith walk has to be that “ours” not the faith of our parents or the tradition of a denomination.  We have to encourage our children in their own relationship with Jesus and to not rely on us, they need to rely on Jesus.

Well my friends another week has passed and I enjoy catching up with you all here each week. May you be blessed as you go about your daily happenings and may you feel God’s presence in your lives.

Thank you all for your support and may God bless you all.

Keep on keeping on my friends…

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

  1. Thanks for the blessing of hearing about your week.
    We still have a couple of weeks before school starts so I’m working hard to get green beans and tomatoes and cucumbers into jars, and just really enjoying the summer days.

    1. Hey Michele, not long, it’s amazing how quickly the summer passes and the next season begins. Enjoy those last warm days and have fun getting all your bottling done, such a blessing to be able to grow your own food. Blessings.

  2. How fun for you to have a little holiday and for your children to come home with medals. I remember attending competitions out of town with my two girls when they were young and how much fun we had, win or lose. It is always good to get away.
    Your pottery is looking great by the way.
    Thank you for hosting this link up and I hope you have a beautiful week.

    1. Hi Patti, thanks for sharing your memories with us. It was really nice to get away and you are right win or lose it’s all good. Thanks for the kind words on my pottery, I am really enjoying it and I’m a bit concerned that it will get addictive. Have a great week. Blessings

  3. I admit I had to look up what an “Eisteddfod” is. 🙂 A competition/festival for various types of the performing arts? Sounds so delightful! Congrats to your kids on their medals! And yes, we all need those lessons in humility, every day. 🙂 I love your pottery so much!
