Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

It’s a sunny day!!! ☀️

And for us, that means wonderful things!!

Finally, after approaching four year living off the grid (Living Off the Grid—What Does That Mean?), this evening, we got the confirmation that our solar system is bringing us power!! ☀️ 👏🏼 🌞

I’ll be writing about that soon, but suffice it to say that we are very excited! Suddenly it seems like we will actually be moving forward after all!

So I’m feeling more encouraged, a bit more energized, and in a flurry of thoughts about what else I can do/assign to help get this show on the road before Fall.

Getting one project moving does have a trickle down effect, so hopefully we will be able to know what next to focus on!

One thing at a time.


Some good advice there.

Hope you have something you can focus on too, that will bring encouragement to your week.


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.
