GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP
Hi there all, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
We’ve had a good but busy week with medical appointments early in the week. Both younger children had to go to the dentist and then we were in Warrnambool on Tuesday for my husband.
Our no 1 son came home on Monday night. It’s been great catching up with him and all that he has been doing. He’s gone again this coming week and then back home for his summer shearing time in a few weeks.
It’s so great watching him grow and learn and rely more and more on God. He’s courting a lovely christian girl and it’s so nice to see them develop their relationship with God as the head. This is such an important step that many young couples miss and it’s important to make sure that God is part of the partnership.
We started milking again and I managed to get some butter made this week. Butter has become quite expensive so it’s nice to cross that one off the shopping list each week. I’m even using the butter dish I made earlier this year at pottery classes, and it’s still in one piece.I also managed to get some cheese made as well. This is a cream cheese so a soft one. This is the easiest one to make, just add starter and rennet and let it sit all day. Drain the curds overnight and then put in a container and add some salt and refrigerate. Easy and delicious.Next week we will be milking two cows so I’m hoping to get on top of the butter making and maybe start on some hard cheeses. When we make cheese we leave the cream in but when we need butter we separate it, and we actually prefer to drink the milk separated.
Remember last weekend we butchered the roosters??? Well I used one this week and made a chicken and pumpkin curry. I cooked the rooster in the pressure cooker and then put the liquid in with the pumpkin in the slow cooker and cooked it for the afternoon. I also put in curry powder, salt, the chicken, coconut cream and some peanut butter.When we got home on Friday night all I had to do was cook some rice and actually our no 2 daughter did that for me. It was so delicious and it was nice to come home and not have to worry what to cook.
We’ve started a new Bible Study and this week was our second get together. It’s on emotionally healthy spirituality and it’s definitely going to be good. It’s pretty full on with reading and home work but we are enjoying it all the same and my good friend and I also discuss it on a Friday afternoon.
This is nice because it sort of gives you a couple days to think and process what you have heard and then we come together and sort of even deepen it more. I really am blessed by this relationship and we are really developing a good friendship.
Our no 1 and 2 son went to our son-in-law and daughter’s place to do firewood on Saturday and spent the night. They all love catching up when he is home and our no 2 son got a treat to go with. We all pitch in with work around here and our no 1 son has blessed us with organising our firewood this year and our no 2 son has been doing a great job of loading it and stacking it here.
The first Sunday of the month there is always a fellowship luncheon after church and it is always nice to sit and chat with our church family over a meal. After church our no 2 daughter had her piano exam and she went really well. It’s a lot of hard work and she pulled it together really well in the end. Our no 2 son will do his at the end of the year and both children are looking forward to new pieces.
Okay everyone, onto our link up…

Thank you every one for stopping by and linking up. There is such a great range of posts each week to read and learn from, I hope you enjoy your visit.
This coming week we will, at some stage, hopefully have a new grandbaby. Our no 1 daughter is due any day now and we are excited and filled with anticipation. Children are such a blessing and a gift from God.
So while waiting for the baby we will be doing school and piano and work around the place. We’ve also got our book group and another sewing morning for the Days 4 Girls.
There’s the usual night time Bible Study and our get together on Friday afternoons and the children’s study to attend. Music lessons and then church. All good and all fun and all hopefully teaching us more about being like Jesus.
Well my friends, I look forward to hearing from you and how you have been going. I pray that you will be blessed and feel God’s presence in your everyday life.
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

I’ve loved seeing your pictures on Instagram!
This week I’ve picked over a bushel of beans from our garden, and the cucumbers need to be picked almost every day. The kitchen will be steamy with the smell of pickles on Monday!
Hey there Michele, that’s great about the beans and cucumbers, my husband really likes pickles too. Enjoy your preserving and I look forward to seeing the pics on instagram. Blessings
