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…

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

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by each week and linking up. It was my pleasure to feature your post and I am so glad that you put Cathy’s Corner together, it is such a blessing to us all. Have a great week. Blessings to you and your family.

  2. All the best with the Eisteddfod tomorrow! We are going on Thursday for choir. I know Jacinta is on the door today, not sure about tomorrow.
    Wonderful to fit in two sewing afternoons. So enjoyable to catch up with friends that way. We had ours yesterday afternoon – all the kids had a great time playing together and we mums got to work on some sewing, knitting, and have a chat.
    I am so trying to convince hubby that some piglets would be a great idea, now that we have no cows. Best way to get the new veggie garden dug up! I will keep trying!
    Blessings for a lovely week.

    1. Hey Jayne, they did well yesterday, sorry I haven’t replied before then. Some firsts and honourable mentions which is nice. Saw Jacinta as well, boy is that lady busy :-). Pigs are definitely a great way to dig up the veggie garden and that is what we use them for. We have our big ones down the paddock digging up where we are going to plant pumpkins next season. Have a great week and hope you son does well with the choir. Blessings

      1. Fantastic! They must be so happy. I hopped on to ask how they went. Great you got to catch up with Jacinta. She sure is busy! Lucky I saw her at our craft afternoon the other day, as she is never home when I drive by!
        Have a lovely rest of the week!

        1. Thanks Jayne, yes they are very happy especially no 2 son with the fact that he won $20.00. We haven’t given it too him yet, he’s a bit focused on it at the moment :-). Was lovely to see Jacinta and you are right she is so busy. Have a great week too. Blessings

  3. Can’t wait to see their pictures & hear how well they did!
    After storms and storms, we finally got a HOT day. It was 79 degrees F for us, and we are all exhausted from the heat. Cool is much more comfortable for us, but we were able to start our planting finally. It’s going to be a busy two months, don’t forget about me in the meantime Friend 🙂 .

    1. Hey there Deborah, glad to hear that you are getting some warmer weather though 79 degrees in our language is only 26 degrees and that is a nice pleasant day :-). I am glad that you can get your planting done and I hope that we are going to see updates as time allows. I understand how busy you will be and I will definitely not forget you and will be praying for you guys and for your garden. Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment and let me know that you guys are going okay. Blessings to you xxxx

  4. I am so thankful you had a good week! It sounds so funny hearing you say you are starting into winter when it is so warm and humid here right now. 🙂 Thank you for the wonderful link-up and for all you do, dear friend. God bless you!

    1. Thanks Cheryl, you are right it is hard for me to imagine what warm humid weather is, when it is so cold here. Thanks for linking up each week and sharing your prayer requests and updates with us. I am looking forward to reading them. Thanks and blessings

  9. Terri, I love your warm, home-spun posts…I feel like I’m right there in your living room visiting with you…the bus trip you’re going on sounds so interesting…please share about this missionary and your trip on future posts ❤️ Many blessings to you ❤️

    1. Thank you so much Beth for your encouraging comment. It would be wonderful to share a cuppa with you in our living room but this blog and yours are a wonderful way to get to know each other. I will share about the trip and take some photos, it should be interesting. Blessings to you too. xxxx

  10. I know that tired and can’t really figure out why feeling. Sometimes a nap is what’s needed, and sometimes getting out for a good brisk walk does the trick. But time in a hot sunny place with swaying palm trees wouldn’t hurt either! 🙂

    1. Thanks for stopping by Elizabeth and thank you for the advice, I like the swaying palm trees one the best :-). I am feeling better today, and I think if I went for a walk it would definitely be brisk, it is very cold. Thanks and blessings to you.
