Homestead Blog Hop #94

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday featuring real food recipes, natural health remedies, DIY, crafts, Gardening Tips, and more...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Just like everyone else we are slowly getting back on a halfway normal schedule. It is difficult sometimes to juggle all of the things in life that we want. In fact many times it is actually impossible to do all of the things we have even promised ourselves. That is when you take the time to step back and reevaluate your priorities. Self Reliance should always be a priority, but sometimes other things have to give way. I hope this finds you well and working toward true independence.
Now on to the hop... Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to's, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.

Meet and Follow Your Hosts!

Homestead Blog Hop #92

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday featuring real food recipes, natural health remedies, DIY, crafts, Gardening Tips, and more...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Life has a way of throwing you a curve ball. This seems to happen most often when you just start to thing that you have everything under control. You start to make bigger plans or dream bigger dreams, then out of left field something hits you that you had no way to expect. When something like that does occur, and believe me it will eventually, you find out the ones you can count on and the ones that will turn their back. I am sure you can look for several posts about this adventure in the future. But for now let's enjoy reading some posts from fellow homesteaders and take time to just breathe.

Episode 55 The Hollywood Disasters Part 1



In this episode we talk about 2 of the disasters that Hollywood loves to portray. In this episode we talk about an asteroid strike and a massive super-volcano eruption. The reason I approached these two together is because their impact and the causes of their impact are so similar.  I hope you enjoy.
