Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
I love blog hop day!! Don’t you?
Welcome to this week’s hop!
Just one week away until Thanksgiving!
Does that mean family traveling to visit you, or will you be traveling? Or, like me, will you be somewhere working the holiday shift so that others can celebrate with their families?
We learn to adjust to life with medical people. Even if we cannot meet on Thanksgiving, we have so much to be thankful for that we won’t worry about which day we eat tofu turkey on.
That’s right! No meat on our Thanksgiving table! We have so many other delicious options that we never miss it, and the birds can rest just a bit easier in our woods, because they will be safe.
In case you missed it, I posted our Vegan Thanksgiving Menu last week. Check out the post if you’re at all curious about a vegan Thanksgiving. Let’s Talk Tofurky: A Vegan Family Thanksgiving Dinner?
Also, a little bit of history thrown in!
Look in another favorite post of mine for a picture of my father when he was just a baby!
He’s hidden in one of the photos in my post talking about Modern Farmhouse vs. Authentic Farmhouse. Just look for the little cutie!
Visit, comment, share!
Don’t forget when you leave a post to visit another post and leave a comment! That’s what this blog hop is all about!
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.

Thanks for coming to share!! God bless!
I love this themed blog hop, even though I am not a homesteader, it makes me feel happy inside to know people who do homestead have a place like this to gather. 🙂 Happy Wednesday and Thanksgiving season.
I love this blog hop. I’m not a homesteader, but my grandmother was and I’m always drawn in to this way of life. I guess there’s a genetic connection. Thanks for sharing it with the UBC.
Not everyone here homesteads, but we all kind of want to embrace the homesteading mindset, so we come together to share!
What a cool environment! I know you asked me to share my post from yesterday and I going to give it a try. Also I am going to follow some of the hosts! Thanks for the invite!
Awesome! I’m tickled that you came over!
Ask questions about anything, and just look around—you can almost always find something new and interesting!
Thank you so much for the feature! Thank you for hosting, Laurie! Wednesday’s have become one of my most favorite days of the week.
Well, that’s a high honor!
We feel so blessed to have every single person making this blog hop what it is!
Thanks again for hosting this lovely party every week! I know how much time and effort goes into doing so and I want you to know that it is greatly appreciated!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
Thanks again for sharing and poking around to discover some new ideas!
Love your blog
So honored to have you come by’.
I heartily thank you for your so lovely visit at ~ My little old world ~, I appreciate it so much!
Sincerely glad to be here, I’m wishing you and your dear ones a most wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving Day.
Thank you for your thoughtful reply!
Thanks inviting me.
You’re welcome! Thank you for coming!
Love the concept of a vegetarian Thanksgiving. Enjoy
Oh, we always do! Thank you so much!!
Thank you so much for hosting and featuring my Stress Less Christmas article this week.
You have such a lovely community here! 🙂
Aww…it is a sweet community that is growing every day! I’m very blessed!
I really did appreciate your article. Life is stressful enough right now without adding so many holiday expectations! Let’s keep the important traditions and leave the others behind! Simple is just fine!!
Fun and entertaining! I grew up in homestead country!
I am coming to believe that anywhere can be homestead country! It’s a state of mind as much as a location! Even urban people are setting up little backyard homesteads. Not quite the same, but we can each cultivate a little bit wherever we find ourselves!
Thank you so much for hosting this party each week.
You’re so welcome! Thanks for coming by to share and discover!
