Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Glad you are here!

Here at Ridge Haven Homestead we have been working on our cabin.  Our boys have been such a great help, but we are all getting weary—mentally and physically.

They say building your own house will really put a strain on relationships.  I believe this is because there are so many decisions to make, supplies to gather, and just so many details!  We have not experienced any major differences of opinion, but just the everyday stress of a busy life has began to work at our resolve for this project.   We will be so glad when we come to the end of building!  Sadly, the end is not in sight quite yet, but we are doing our best.

Currently we are still working on board and batten siding.  We are slow because we are amateurs.  Little by little will get us there.

My Blog has had a week or two of silence.  Just not enough time to sit down and write these days. I am praying for the Lord to show me how to balance all that life keeps throwing at us!  Maybe you can relate

At my rate, I am glad you stopped in today.  Have fun hopping!

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.
