Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Hi, and Happy Wednesday!

At the current moment I’m not coming up with anything profound to say.

But I can share a funny cat picture to brighten your day. 😃

Cat in snow
Mama said there’d be days like this!

Too tired to be inspired.

I thought I made that phrase up just now, until I did a quick Google search and saw I wasn’t the first to say it.


It’s a good thing it’s blog hop day, because I can look at all of your wonderful ideas and creations from the blog hop!

So… I’m looking forward to that. I have done nothing for Christmas. No decor, no menu planning, and no gift shopping yet. I’ll get to it…


Until then…I’m gonna enjoy the blog hop!

About blog hops:

If you’re new to blog hops, please see All About a Blog Hop. It’ll explain blog hops to you very well!

Blog hops are a great way to get your blog posts seen! You share, you visit, you learn, everyone wins! Not to mention that blog hops are fun!

Be sure to check out my post on the blog hop about gifts that every blogger will appreciate! I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from other bloggers, and the consensus is that any blogger would be happy to receive these kinds on gifts.

*hint* Most of them don’t cost anything!

You can read that post here or scroll on down to see it on the hop!

Happy hopping! Let’s all find something today to inspire us!


Have a great day!

Don’t forget to visit some other blogs and let them know you’ve read their work. A blog hop is a great way to meet new friends.


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.
