Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Happy day!

If you came by the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop this week, you’ll know that we’ve been having some adjustments around here. My mom suffered a fall at the end of last week, breaking her femur. After her surgery, she’s doing well, but she has a long road ahead of rehab and healing. I’m now staying with Dad, and, like I said, we are all making adjustments.

Outside, we are definitely seeing indications of Springtime! Daffodils, crocuses, and sunny days have arrived, even though we still have chilly nights! I’m excited because I love the progression of the Spring flowers as they come out one by one!

This crocus was blooming right in my path today. That was brave! I almost stepped on it!

I don’t know about you, but the crocuses and daffodils always make me happy.

I hope that you find something that make you happy today too!

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.
