Simple Homestead Blog Hop #183 | Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to the Simple Homestead Blog Hop #182!

Plus a holiday giveaway!

Alright friends, Thanksgiving is TOMORROW! This week has been really crazy for me. I had all of these goals and tasks I wanted to achieve and then my husband ended up in the hospital with acute appendicitis and, needless to say, about 15% of the these that needed to be done got done. There are ALWAYS setbacks when it comes to homesteading and that’s okay. I’m fortunate enough to have my mother-in-law living close enough to help me out. Last night I stayed home so I could clean and the house ready for the rest of the family coming into town. This morning I came back down to the hospital, where I’m writing this from now. Thankfully, the surgery went great and my sweety is on his way to full recovery! So I am SO thankful for family and modern medicine today! Also, I’m going to have to remember that Self Love is important while playing catch-up next week! What are you thankful for? Let me know in the comments below!

If you didn’t know, one of our cohosts, Nancy on the Homefront, is also co-hosting a great Holiday Giveaway as part of the Season of Giveaways from Katherine’s Corner. Through November 16 you can enter to win a $150 Target gift card to help with your Thanksgiving/Christmas/Hanukkah/Etc. holiday preparations. Nancy will be participating in several other giveaways during the holiday season, so be sure to follow her so you won’t miss out on any opportunities!

In addition to the holiday giveaway, Kathi from Oak Hill Homestead is somewhat of our fearless leader here at the hop. She sends us all the information we need every week and answers all of our questions. Kathi is heading up a “Social Media Challenge” for this month (November) and she’d love to have you join! The challenge is to post one thing you’re thankful for every single day of November, even though Thanksgiving isn’t the only reason we should be thankful during the year. You don’t HAVE to post every day, there’s no penalty if you don’t or can’t! This is just a fun little thing to do and we’d love to see what keeps you going. You can use the picture below to share this challenge with all your fellow followers! If you’d like to follow Kathi and me during this challenge, you can do so here:

It is not too late to join us in being thankful!

Share your best material and check out someone else’s best material, too (maybe leave a comment letting them know you found them here at the hop!). Be sure to follow your hosts to let them know you’re here, as well! Personally, I love to use blog hops as a source of pinning material for Pinterest.
