Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
I don’t know about you, but this week has been brutal. In general, time changes don’t effect me all that much. I still don’t go outside to do my chores until the sun comes up, so that means I’m feeding at 8am instead of 7am. Guess what, the animals don’t know the difference. The problem? My body apparently thought this was fall back instead of spring forward, so I’m waking up for no apparent reason at 4am when my alarm doesn’t go off until 6am. I am not amused. The result is I’ve pretty much had the motivation of a sloth this week. I get up since I can’t sleep anyway, drink my coffee, and I’m ready to go back to bed about the time the kids are waking up and I should be going outside to feed. And this is a week when I really need to be putting in more effort rather than less. Too many things to get done this week.
Among other things, we have a freeze warning for tonight. I know, I know, most of you haven’t even thawed, so a freeze isn’t really a big deal. For me, I have about two dozen tomato, pepper, and eggplant plants in my garden right now. I have two tables full of seedlings and succulents. I have citrus trees that are starting to bloom. Now is really not a good time for me to get a freeze. The trees are still in pots, so they may actually come inside tonight. Everything else will have to be covered. And I’ll have to do it sooner, rather than later, because the kids have swim lessons tonight. Busy busy bee.
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.
