Today’s post at Day by Day Homesteading discusses how nature pays no heed to our “plans,” and how we can learn to thrive through our failures, whether it be in the realms of gardening, homesteading, or anywhere else. Work with nature, and never give up!

Hi Rebecca,
It is so therapeutic to read your honest and authentic reflections. Yes, this rings true for me as well. Despite our best laid plans things are not necessarily going to work out the way we planned–especially in the garden. But we must not give up–we must try and try again! Some of life’s greatest lessons can be learned in the garden. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring experiences and insights with us on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I appreciate it!

Hi Jessica,
Thanks! This is just the easy-to-incorporate movement advice I need to fit more fitness and water into my busy schedule–which includes too many hours at the computer and too little time on my feet. I love the way this program challenges us to simply allocate a small amount of time to movement and increased hydration. But it all adds up.”Every. Movement. Matters.” This may become my new mantra.Thank you for sharing wonderful “Move More. Drink More.” Challenge” with us at the Healthy Happy Green and Natural Party Blog Hop! I’m going to go back to day one, catch up and do it!

Hi Sadaf,
Lately I have been obsessed with chili sauce–taking every opportunity to make my meals spicier with a dash or two of this amazing condiment. I also find myself sprinkling red pepper flakes on most meals for an extra kick, so I was delighted to see your recipe for Red Chili Tomato Pasta on the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop! Thank you so much for sharing your creative cuisine with us! I appreciate it.

Hi Kimmy,
These glasses look great! I, too, love to save and reuse my glass jars for all kinds of things. I use them to store beans, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, rice, etc. They are also great for holding homemade DIY body care products. The wide mouth jars like yours are the coolest!Thank you so much for sharing this great reuse idea with us on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I appreciate it! Happy 4th of July!

Hi Shirl,
What a nice, spicy, traditional delight! My grandparents lived in the South so I too grew up with pepper sauce on our family dinner tables. As a child, though, I never used it. Now I can make my own and share it with friends. Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious Southern Style Pepper Sauce recipe on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop!

I have fond memories of pickling vegetables with my mother when I was a child. However your colorful rainbow carrot refrigerator pickles are much more amazing than our simple pickles.
