Announcement… please re-read the simple guidelines for submission (below) so you can be sure your post matches the spirit and theme of this blog hop. Please do not submit giveaway posts. Also, please remember to link your post to one of the host blogs!

It’s Simple Lives Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share your tips and recipes for living a simple life. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all 4 sites! As a reminder, this blog hop is a way to share with many people your posts on what you are doing to live a simple life. Whether that’s gardening, raising urban chickens, homeschooling, sewing, making your own deodorant, or cleaning supplies… we want to know about it! If you’re into homeopathy, ways to save $ by conserving energy or other ways to live frugally… we want to know about it! If you bike, cook real food, homestead or farm… we want to know about it!

Your Hosts (for the time being, due to hosts taking breaks)

  3. Me!

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.

3. No giveaway away or otherwise primarily advertising oriented posts. Keep your topics to fit our simple living theme of “consume less, produce more.” We will delete posts that don’t fit.

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. Lemon Socks for a Fever by Holistic Kid.
Emily writes, “A lemon fruit can withstand extreme heat and even thrives in such a severe climate, making it an ideal therapeutic tool for navigating a fever. Lemon, when applied in the method described below, will help to alleviate a child’s discomfort while allowing the fever to continue burning.”


2. Roasted Eggs by Real Food Forager.
Jill writes, “Here is a novel way to cook eggs that may help you when you have a lot of eggs to hard boil and not enough room in the pot or on top of the stove. “


3. Ducks and Duck Eggs from Prairie Sunrise Homestead.
Marg shares a great looking set of duck eggs along with this encouragement, “Let me tell you about another egg that is overlooked, and underrated. The duck egg. Yes, you can eat duck eggs (I often get asked that) and they are not just for baking, though they do well in baked goods because they retain moisture better than chicken eggs. They are delicious and nutritious on their own.”

    I got online a few weeks ago and went to all the community event calendars for my city and got all the free or nearly free events, live music, festivals, kids activities, etc. and put them on my calendar. I have a 2 yo and 4 yo and am a SAHM. Between the garden, backyard pool and my now full calendar I think we should have an adventure filled summer and not bust the budget! On tap for this weekend is a horse show/expo, Earthday with live music in the park, and a free family day at the art museum!

  2. Thanks for hosting! I linked up three posts this week. Somehow, I forgot to linkup last week! Anyhow, I shared my experiences shopping at Amish stores (my secret for a low grocery budget); my first homebirth story which ended in a transport to the hospital; and leftovers I found in my garden from last year! Have a great week!!

  3. Happy Thursday to you diana and fellow linky-posters!

    I’m stoked to see what everyone’s linking up – I’ve been so busy with the end of school I haven’t had much time to check out what’s going on. I’m hoping I’ll have more time this weekend :)

    This week I’ve linked up the swag I got from my CSA – where do you get your ingredients from?

  4. ahhhh! those little duck eggs remind me so much of the blue chicken eggs i bartered for last Spring. best eggs I’ve ever tasted.

    This week I’m throwin’ out fish in a pinch: Fresh, seasonal pan seared Pacific halibut with oven roasted tomatoes, Saanich Organics (my CSA) braising greens, and cumin scented red quinoa. All in 30 minutes!!
