Homestead Blog Hop!

What brings you here!?

Homesteading updates, or blog hop and discovery?

Most come here on Wednesdays for the homestead blog hop. A few come for checking out what I have to say. I’ve been told I’m a woman of few words on Wednesdays.

That is true.

That’s because I realize that most came to hop!

But for those who are curious, we are having a busy couple of days on our homestead. That’s due to rain. When it rains gets sometimes gets to stay home, well, rarely. This week he did, and we’ve been working on the driveway.

All of the family got involved, including Austin, who delivered gravel. That was fun. I’ll show you pics maybe today on the YouTube video.


I also saw something cool.

I wrote about it during the night when insomnia paid me a visit.

Luna Moth Encounter

That’s all for now.

Have a great day!

Oh, here’s one recent gem from the YouTube channel.

  1. I am definitely not a homesteader, but I still get so many good ideas! I will be checking out the link for the DIY cleaners!

  2. Yay for Austin for helping out with the gravel. We had a gravel driveway once when we lived near Ontario, Ohio. I’ve never considered homesteading, but I’m enjoying what I learn here.

  3. I enjoy reading your blogs about homesteading, seems like you always have something going on. I love the Lunar moth, the first time I saw one was it was on the door of our shop!

What is your experience? 💜 I read every comment, and so many times I find that I gain encouragement from what’s shared. ❤️
