Addiction Recovery Farm and Weekend #Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #183!

A quick greeting and warm wishes to my regular visitors of my weekend blog hop. You might have noticed that I wasn't on top of things and that, in fact, I was dragging my feet last month! Well, besides being terribly distracted today, I do feel better and ready to tackle this month full speed ahead. Last month I didn't even post a book review, but this month I have 5 book posts lined up and my first one went live yesterday. Often included is a PayPal cash or Amazon gift card giveaway, so don't miss out!

Some of you will have read about RAEL, the addiction recovery farm, where my husband visits twice a week as a Christian volunteer. He goes to encourage the guys and give Bible training. 

Last Saturday we participated in an event that they were running, a 48-hour loom-athon, to knit scarves and beanies for the needy while raising addiction awareness and removing the stigma associated with addicts. It's wintertime in South Africa, in case you were wondering why the scarves and beanies.

If you would like to read more about RAEL, then check out my more in-depth post from last year, Sober Living.
