Saturday Spotlight


I just recently came across the blog “Homestead Revival” and was instantly drawn in.  This is a very encouraging blog that focuses on homesteading from Amy, a Christian wife and mom.  I came across one post of hers in particular that made me start following her blog right away (that, plus the other posts I had already read).  The post was about modesty which I think was excellently written in a non judgmental way that anyone could appreciate.  It was directed to her daughter and other young women, but I think any woman of any age (with or without daughters) can appreciate the post.  You can Click Here to read that particular post. 
This blog gives many tips on homesteading but also gives tips on small things you can do even if you live in the city.  Amy mentioned in her blog that she actually got started that way.  She originally started doing small things while she lived in the city, then she took things to a larger scale once she and her husband moved to where they are now.  I think this is a wonderful blog with a lot of inspiration.

The Heatwave is Over!

It has been soooo hot lately, here in southeastern Wisconsin!  It was in the mid to upper 90's all last week with a heat index in the hundreds, and there was a heat advisory warning for most of the week.  I was joking with my mom last week on one of the (roughly) hundred degree days and said to her, "Whew, it feels like Africa out here!"  LOL.  Then when I saw her again on a (slightly cooler) lower 90 degree day I told her, "Well, at least it doesn't feel like Africa anymore.  Now it just feels like Texas!" (Which is only slightly better. lol)  The heat alone wouldn't be so bad but it's always very humid since we're right near Lake Michigan.  So the humidity makes it even worse!

Luckily it has cooled off tremendously.  It has only been in the lower to mid 80's for the last few days and today it's only in the 70's so all I have to say is...HURRAY!!!  I didn't even need to turn on the air conditioning today.  It was cool enough outside to cool off my home just by opening the windows. 

I know with August being right around the corner, it'll be scorching hot again before I know it.  But I'll enjoy the mild weather for now.

Hope all of you are staying cool this summer!
