Welcome to Good Morning Mondays #45.
Another week has passed and August is almost over. Soon September will be here along with more spring weather for us and for you all in the Northern Hemisphere some cooler weather.
Spring is a beautiful time of the year, the buds are coming out and we already have some flowers on our fruit and nut trees. The ground is starting to dry out and we are planning our spring vegetable garden already.
Our daughter and son are home from skiing and it is wonderful to have them back. They had a great time and our no 2 daughter has some awful sunburn on her face and it is only where her goggles weren’t. She does look so cute. It seems that she was really good on skis and amazed everyone with how well she went.
Here she is with the beautiful young lady who took her, she is a sister to our son-in-law and they had a great time together.
Here she is on the ski lift, look at her poor cheeks they are almost as pink as her helmet.
Here is a picture of our two lovely granddaughters on their toboggan. They had a ball going down the slopes and they are wearing the matching beanies I made for them, I am really pleased with how they fit.
I felt worn out just listening to all that they were doing, it sounded so energetic.
We had a quiet week without our no 1 son and no 2 daughter. I had hardly any washing and no 2 son missed them both.
We had our Revelation study on Tuesday night and once again it was a great time spent together in the word of God.
We took a trip to Portland on Thursday and visited my husbands’ uncle and aunt. We had a lovely afternoon together and I will put up a separate post on this trip as I got some lovely photos of the area, unfortunately the weather wasn’t conducive to fishing.
I must admit I was full of the flu earlier in the week and felt rather miserable and we didn’t really achieve too much. We did some jigsaw puzzles and spent some valuable time together just talking and no 2 son stepped up and helped with the chores his sister usually does, he is growing up really quickly.
I think I am ready to get back on track this week with the link up. Sometimes we don’t have any motivation and we just need to decide to do something and then it all comes together. This is my plan for this coming week.
So thank you to all of you who faithfully linked up and stopped by and left me encouraging comments, I really appreciated it.
So onto our link up for this week.
Our top three posts were…

Thank you to everyone for linking up, I hope you had a good time reading each others posts.
This week I am giving our no 2 daughter a few days of rest and recuperation. She is very tired so I will let her gel out a bit.
I now have washing so I am going to try and get on top of that and try and get it dry. We have a sewing afternoon later in the week which will be nice as we haven’t been able to get together for ages, maybe we might even finish the quilts!!
My husband and our no 1 son are going to a men’s camp this coming weekend so the children and I are on deck with all the animals, hopefully they will behave themselves this time. They are only away 2 nights but I will really miss them both, my husband and I don’t spend much time apart (except for work).
We have the usual music lessons and church and then I want to be home on Sunday afternoon when they get back.
It is now only 2 weeks until our daughter is due to have their next baby so I think I might put a few things in the car for us so that we are prepared. It is very exciting to think about this new little one coming into the family.
I hope you are all well and that your days are filled with joy and thanksgiving for all that our Heavenly Father has done for us.
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 to you all my friends. xxxx
You will find me linked up at some of these great blogs.

Blessings to you and thanks for hosting.
Thank you Patrick for linking up and stopping by. Have a great week. Blessings
I’m glad you are feeling better. I’ve been fighting a stubborn bug myself. It’s always so good to read your posts. They are like reading a family letter to someone special. Thank you for including us in this. I’m a little late to the link up this week because of the illness.
Hey Janis so lovely to have you stop by and I so appreciate your kind and encouraging words. I hope you can get rid of your stubborn bug and feel totally well asap. Our youngest son has been struggling this week with asthma and I think he is on the improve now, but he has to stay inside all day which is trying for him. I am so happy that you enjoy reading my posts and I am always happy to hear from you. Blessings to you and have a great weekend.
I’m not sure how soon you will see this, but I was concerned about you this morning when I didn’t see your linkup. I just read Cheryl’s prayer request for you concerning your surgery. Just wanted you to know that I am praying for you, for a quick recovery, and for God to show Himself strong on your behalf in the meantime. I know He has something good to bring out of all this!
Praying for you in Texas,
Just wanted you to know I continue to pray for you, my sister!
