Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

Hi, Friends!

Getting a slower start today, but here’s the blog hop for today!

Tell me what’s happening in your home?

Around RHH we have a porch project happening, more okra picking and preserving (in little batches), and just usual home responsibilities.

Here is the latest over at YouTube, featuring the boys and their work on the back porch. Back porch off grid cabin

Also, if you’re interested to see how I make a Vegan Cashew Pesto, you can catch This video

I also have the recipe linked here on the blog, to make it easier. Perfectly Plant Based Cashew Pesto Recipe

Signing off!

I’m out to go get that okra! Make sure you wear gloves! I learned the hard way this past week! No fun!


I’m working on another personal project. Something hard, and more of a challenge than I’ve attempted before. I’ll be sharing that one day soon!

Have a great day!

The Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop

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!

Features for this week!

The first feature is a fun and cute snack for fall! We have lots of acorns on our property, and I loved this!

The next feature is a sweet apple story. My mom actually read us a version of this story when I was young. I remember the “no doors and no windows, but a star inside”. Really takes me back–and that’s way before the books published on the blog, so that book may be out of print now.

These worksheets promise to help us get more organized on the homestead. I could use that. They’re free to download!
