Like everyone we’re trying to get ready for Christmas on our homestead — 17 Comments

  1. This is a little late for a Christmas wish Jackie but still wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog and reading about your progress. I wished we could do the same as you but at our age (70) starting out now is out of the question. We do though what we can. I have your canning book and use it all the time when I can. I wished I was your neighbor so I could be more than a blog friend.

    So a late Merry Christmas to you and all your family. If Jesus hadn’t been born there would be no Christmas so lets give our lives to him as he gave his life for us.

  2. Merry Christmas, Jackie to you and all of your family. You are a much loved lady. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge with the rest of us to help better our lives. You are such a blessing.
    May you have a wonderful, blessed New Year.

  3. Merry Christmas. Thank you so much for your help, your example and your good common sense. I pray you will have many blessings in the New Year.

  4. GOD to continue HIS blessings on you and yours, including your animals- – – You can rightfully judge a mans character- – – by the way he tends [and loves] his animals- – – – Thanks for being YOU ! ! ! !

  5. Like so many others, MERRY CHRISTMAS, Jackie and family. May God continue to bless you and yours throughout the coming year. For He has blessed us with you and your willingness to share your knowledge, that so many are gratefull for.

  8. The best things in life are the fruits of our labors, thank you Jackie for reminding us. And Christmas doesn’t cost a penny to anyone who seeks after it’s true meaning.

    Bless you and your family.

  9. Amen! We have been living on near-broke for over 12 years. We are now approaching 65 and retirement yah, right. We have nothing compared to you and your husband, yet, we have everything…..that we need for now. The joy of Christmas that is available to all to enjoy this time of year is ours year ’round. He works in wondrous ways, maybe not giving what we ask for but always providing what we need. Merry Christmas Jackie to you and all your loved ones and thank you for the time you share with all of us.

    Merry Christmas to all and to all good health and good living.

  10. Thanks for the uplifting posting. Merry Christmas to “Jackie” who I quote often as if you were a much loved neighbor. You are one of my cherished blessings. Stay warm and healthy, we depend on reading of you, Will and David, our dear Backwoods friends.

  11. I count YOU among my blessings! I have learned so much from you over the years…and while I will likely never be as self-sufficient as you, I am way better off now than before I started following you in Backwoods Home.

    A very Merry Christmas and a healthy Happy New Year to you and your family!

  12. You have a lot of people that you don’t even know who wish you the best in everything!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
    (You sure up early!)
