Simple Homestead blog hop #160

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Hi there! I'm always glad to see you when we get together for another linky party. Our Simple Homestead blog hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening.

I hope you have fun exploring all the great ideas that are shared each week. Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger (please see our simple rules below). I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

I know most people love summer

But to be honest, I dread it. I love working in my garden, but I'm confined to the early morning hours (and I do mean early morning). Summer days in the South are hot and sticky and it's my least favorite season. Sweet tea and lemonade are what get me through.

I admire Kathie Lapcevic of Homespun Seasonal Living: she lives each season to the fullest and embraces each one for its positive qualities. She's offering a free 8-week email course to help make this summer a season of intention and simplicity, and I'm already signed up, because I need to find something good about summer. Would you like to join me in celebrating summer's uniqueness? Kathie is promising recipes, projects, and tips to make the most of summer abundance while also cultivating a simple, seasonal lifestyle that includes time for rest, fun, creativity, and meaningful relationships.

Register here: An Intentional Summer. This free e-course begins June 24th.
