Simple Homestead blog hop #161

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

I love working in my garden, it's where I pray, think and am inspired, I love listening to the birds and watching my dogs play while they wait for me, plus the exercise is good for me. But during the summer my gardening is confined to the short early morning hours before it gets blazing hot out there. Summer days in the South are hot and sticky, and the mosquitoes are ravenous. Summer is NOT my favorite season.

Whether you love summer or dread it, you might want to sign up for Kathie Lepcevik's FREE 8-week-long email celebration of summer, including recipes, projects, and tips to make the most of summer while also cultivating a simple, seasonal lifestyle that includes time for rest, fun, creativity, and meaningful relationships. I'm signed up - maybe you'll want to join me?

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