Welcome back to Simple Lives Thursday – a time where we share simple living tips, tricks and projects that we have going.
Please read and follow the Simple Lives Thursday bloghop rules
1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole. Such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of nourishing food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policeman, however, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.
2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.
Featured Posts from Last Week’s Submissions
We really enjoy reading your posts each week! Featured post bloggers, please grab the badge above and display it on your site! Link it to one of the host blogs’ posts for the specific week that you were featured.
Here are our picks from last week’s submissions. Thanks to all who participated — it is always hard to choose!
1. How I Learned To Let Go Of Fear by The Stockpot. “Now that my children aren’t infants anymore, I needed to get out of the “Helicopter Parent” mindset (hovering over the children constantly, over-parenting) and start letting my children and me gain a bit of independence. And so began my journey of letting go of my fear.”
2. My Helper by a number of things. “Lilly is one of those children that kind hearted people stare at, smile and say, ‘Wow. She sure is a busy one!’ Ha. The more I think about it, the more “busy” really does seem to be the right word (and so much nicer than a few others that might apply). She gets into positively everything, and keeping her “busy” is sometimes the only way we can all stay remotely sane.”
3. Hard Cider: Part 1 by An Austin Homestead Moved West. “On Tuesday, I whipped up a small batch of ‘starter’ that I used the next day to start some hard cider and get my vinegar going a little more quickly. I’m worried that our apartment is going to be just too cold for fermentation, but I’m not paying a higher electricity bill just to get some hooch and vinegar.”
