Homestead Blog Hop #59

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

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Thanksgiving Day has now passed, but I hope an attitude of gratitude continues in your life. By now hopefully all the leftovers are either gone, preserved in some what or in the compost pile. Many people have turned their full attention to Christmas. Oh I love the Christmas of my memories, but I will be honest, I really don't care much for the Christmas I see unfolding before me. I know that people for years have fought over the best buys and I actually remember when fights broke out over Cabbage Patch Kids (those things were so ugly). 

I want to encourage all of you to take time to focus on the good things this season brings. The mere ideal of peace on earth and good will to men. If we would focus on this instead of getting the latest and greatest gift, we could make our little part of the world a better place.  

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!
