What blogs do you read? I read many things during the course of a day but rarely does a morning go by that I don't sit down at my computer with a hot cup of coffee and catch up on my morning blogs. Most of the blogs that I read faithfully are listed on the sidebar of my own blog.They tend to vary greatly but usually pertain to homesteading, cooking, quilting or gardening in some way. None of the sites have been there longer than Thy Hand Hath Provided. Why do I read her blog faithfully ? Because I can relate....A young mother trying to raise her small children, homeschool, garden and can while trying to keep up with the day to day weeding, laundry and general responsibilities of motherhood and keeping a home. I remember fondly my years of canning with a house full of little boys under foot. Those same boys now 37, 35 and 34, no longer living with mama or even in the same state. All 3 now married and with wives and children of their own. But daily I turn back the clock and relive those days when it seemed I cooked for a small army of little folk and life was a never ending line of cloth diapers hanging on the clothesline.

Good Luck to you all and in the mean time don't forget to pop on over to Jane's blog and check it out. I think you will enjoy her unique writing style, keen wit and unending ability to find joy and humor in the face of adversity. Their newest endeavor is bee keeping!

Her honey mustard recipe is divine and a family favorite of ours!
