Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

I’m feeling good this week. My son is at Vacation Bible School, and as much as I hate leaving the house, it’s been a good motivator for me to get up and get stuff done first thing in the morning.

It hasn’t been raining very much, but it’s not brutally hot either. I do need to stay on top of watering my container plants, but I’m able to stay outside and work on some projects without melting, so that’s a plus too.

One thing I did do about a week ago was got individual water bottles for me and each of the kids. I have a history of migraines, and my 7 year old has started to develop them over the past year, but we’ve found that eating regularly and staying hydrated helps both of us. I want to push myself to spend more time outside this summer, so I’m drinking a lot of water and trying to keep myself acclimated as much as possible.

How is your week going?

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.
