Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

Is it me, or do the weeks zip by faster than they used to?

When I was young, it seemed like weeks lasted about a month. Now they seem like two days, and they’re gone!

Cabin work and apples have been on our agenda this week.

It’s the boys working on the cabin porch, and of course we always meet with a few glitches. Rain, metal roofing annoyances, and the learning curve kind of keep us on our toes. I made a short video overview of their project if you’d like to tune in.

Teens Building Our Cabin Sunroom

Coming up, we will be doing up some apples. I don’t know what inspiration I got when I ordered four bushels of apples last week, but now I’m going no be processing them next week. I’m thinking apple pie filling and maybe some applesauce. 🍏

Some of the recent videos up on our channel include,


Zestar Apples and more

This is a place to share some love and spread some sunshine!

The focus of this blog hop will be: anything related to making our homes more sunny and happy! If that’s through homemade cooking, a health tip that will help another, homesteading tips, homeschool successes or real-life struggles, or just whatever God is impressing you with in your home journey, please share it!

  1. Laurie,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and Thanks so much for hosting this lovely party each and every week!! I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into it along with visiting all the links and choosing Features!!! Thank You!! I hope you are having a great week!!

  2. Hi! I’m brand new to blogging and I just found your link party today. I hope to pop over every Sunday. Thank you for hosting! I’m #31 & 32 in today’s party. I have been in a meal planning rut lately, and it’s so encouraging to see so many other mom bloggers sharing what they are making for dinner. Unlike social media, which can leave me feeling discontent and like I don’t measure up to other moms, I’ve found blogging to be the opposite. When I read other blogs, I feel encouraged. Thanks again for hosting!

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