Hi there everyone and welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.

On Tuesday morning our No 2 daughter headed off with family for their annual ski trip. This year they went to Falls Creek as the place they had planned didn’t have much snow left.  They stayed in a lovely 2 bedroom house in the village and were able to downhill and cross country ski. She is getting quite proficient and had a blast.

Our son-in-law, daughter and family go as well and our oldest granddaughter who is 3 even got a chance to practice on skis. She did really well for her first time.

Even the youngest was bundled up and enjoyed the trip.

Well us at home decided that we would take a day trip to Warrnambool and surrounding areas and we headed down early on Wednesday morning.  We had a great breakfast at a lovely restaurant and then we had a look around town.

It seemed to rain a heap more over the weekend and the mud that was starting to dry up has come back. We have been getting prepared for our spring vegetable garden and my husband has moved this hothouse he made out into the vegetable garden and has put the pigs into it.  They are happily digging it up and fertilizing it at the same time.IMG_20160817_181420In another few weeks we will put plastic on top and move the pigs out and prepare the ground for our early tomato seedlings which our daughter has been growing for us.

Then those pigs will be butchered for more bacon and sausages for the coming summer.

My husband and children headed off over the weekend for their Fathers and children camp with the other men doing the course. There were 5 men and 10 children and they had a great time. They didn’t camp this time due to the weather but they managed to use a holiday home. They cooked on the open fire though, played games and had a sing a long. They all came home tired but happy.

Our son-in-law, daughter and family came down on Saturday afternoon to keep me company. As usual we had a great time and they taught me a new card game called Monopoly. I managed to win a couple of times but they were both just too good for me, and the later it got the harder it became.  Again we had another really late night (early morning), but it was a lot of fun with the addition of deep conversations.

I feel blessed that they were able to come as they had only just got home from their ski trip and were tired to begin with, they are all such a blessing and it was great to see and play with our grandchildren again.  Our oldest granddaughter even calls me grandma now, wow that is exciting.

Okay, that’s our week….

Thank you everyone for stopping by and taking the time to link up. What have you got for us this week??

This week everyone is home again, we will be doing school and back into music practice.

The Answers In Genesis Ark Van is in Hamilton on Wednesday night so we will be going to that and then my husband has his usual Father’s Course on Thursday.

This coming weekend we have a fruit tree grafting course to go to and then a restful Sunday afternoon will be enjoyed by all.

I am still reading Fervent and doing my verse by verse study on Jude and Ephesians. My daughter gave me a great link to an app that will help me in this and I am excited to have a look at that this coming week.

Also a reminder about our monthly link up…

This link up commenced last Wednesday and I apologise that I didn’t get it up on Wednesday. I’ll admit that I forgot because we went out for the day. This months topic is FAITH and I look forward to hearing from you over there.

Also remember you don’t have to link up, but I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section, so stop over if you get the time.

Have a blessed week my friends and may God lead and guide you in your everyday life.

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 xxxx

  1. Dearest friend,
    I’m so overjoyed to be here again after my forced interlude, our Summer is always far too busy, alas, and to watch your so beautiful Winter photographs is refreshing me, we’re having such hot temperatures in Northern Italy during these days which are the hottest of the whole year !

    Hope you’re having a beautiful new week ahead, I’m sending blessings of joy to you, thank you for this amazing party I missed so much !

    With love
