Good morning to everyone and welcome to another Good Morning Mondays link up. How are you all going? We have had a good week and I am looking forward to the next one.
As I said last week we went to a turkey farm, this is across the road from the Big Koala at Dadswells Bridge, click here if you want to see more about it.
Here is no 2 daughter and son in front of the Koala. They had a great time there, and there was a cockatoo in a cage and it talked to them.
They were careful not to stick their fingers in though otherwise he might have bitten them off.
We bought home 3 turkeys from the turkey farm, see our new arrivals for more information on them.
Australia has heaps of “BIGS”. The Big Pineapple in Queensland, the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, the Big Trout in Adaminaby, New South Wales. These are the ones I have been to and I am sure there are heaps more.
We started school again this week and music practice. I have decided never to have a break from music practice again. It has been an interesting week with No 2 son and his piano, but it is finally clicking in again. He is such a good little player with great rhythm and energy.
I have done some sewing and some cleaning up of the house. The younger children and I have nearly finished weeding the vegetable patch, and only have 2 more rows of potatoes to go. We are blessed that the weed that is growing is easy to pull out which is also helped by the fact that we have had some more rain this week.
Our zucchinis are finally starting to fruit, which is great. I am looking forward to canning this, to add to soups and stews. I also add zucchini to my bottled tomatoes with onions.
This week coming we have a trip to Melbourne (3 hours away) and general school work. I am organising with a homeschooling friend to meet together once a fortnight so that our daughters can do some craft or sewing together. We are starting that this week and I think the girls might start on a quilt – just a basic one.
We have some friends who live near the coast and they have blackberries on their property and they have offered to let us pick some, so hopefully we can fit that in this week too.
My husband has been working from home fixing a truck for a client and it has been great to have him home. He has more to do on the truck and then has a couple jobs away from home later in the week.
Well that’s about it for my week so on to our link up.

Bobsled Run…Off the Deck? by Gentle Joy Homemaker
I thought this was a great idea, bobsledding off the deck and then wanting to do it off the roof next year, what a great way to have fun!!!
Thank you ladies for your wonderful posts and thank you to everyone for taking the time to link up. Each week our link up is growing and I am feeling so blessed by the effort everyone makes to stop by.
I was convicted this morning during our Sunday worship service when our pastor spoke on what we were attached to. Were we attached to things of the world that got in the road of our attachment to God. I want to encourage all of us to look at what we are attached to and think about their importance in our lives.
Blessings to you all my dear friends.
