A Dream

Ok, I have a dream. I don't know if it will ever come about but, it would be worth a try.  I was thinking, how awesome it would be to have a get-together with "homesteady" people? Yep, nothing fancy, but just a nice bonfire, some good home cooked food, and maybe a little questions and answers from everybody.

 If you can do something, be it spin wool into yarn, or pluck a chicken, or just know how to can. I would want you to come. And then, when we are all setting around the fire, just start talking and asking questions. If you think you know the answer to someones questions, speak up. If you have a question, speak up. If you have a demonstration, demonstrate it. It would be really casual and all. And I guess, if ya want, you could bring a tent. Spend the night. You can fish in our pond!  Or, you could just stay for a few hours. It would be up to you. Very informal.

Like I said, I'm just kicking this around, but I thought that if anyone would be interested in coming, maybe having something like that around spring time.  Anyone interested? Or, any suggestions?

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, dreamer

We have been wanting to do something like that for a long time now. You are a little to far away to make that drive tho. What 14 hours?

Tiny Gardener said...

MDR, I think we are something like 14 hours. I don't blame you for not comming! That's a long way!

Gotta love a get together around a campfire with like minded people. I'd like to come too, but like most of the others I live a little too far away... but I do hope you can have your dream and have people over! Would be fun!

Cat said...

That would be a blast, since I am out here in Oregon, and it sounds like others are also not as close to you for it to be a quick trip, too bad you couldn't sort of schedule it waaay in the future... I would love to do that, but not entirely sure who I would get to care for the animals... Still, it sounds like fun!

SFG, I'd be game but I'm not in too good of shape to leave here at the moment, which you'd know if you ever came to visit us 'common folks" in chat again ;) It's a great idea tho!

SciFiChick said...

Dang, that would be FUN! To bad I'm almost as far away as MDR. And I am going to "second" what mmpaints said :P~

Tiny Gardener, I live just on the other side of the river in KY.

Cat, I haven't made the date for it yet. Any suggestions?

MM, Oh, I guess I'm going to have to check in. I hope it's nothing horrible.

what a nice dream. i just found your blog and it is the first blog i have ever read that started with an invitation. i live in north east miss. near elvis presleys birthplace, but way out in the woods. we have five acres but no farm animals. i do have two very nice chinese sharpeis named daisy and lily. i quilt, crochet, knit, and sew..perhaps you could have a get together for "homesteady people" online someday. that would be great for those of us who live afar. sincerely, caryn

How funny......I've been thinking about something very similar to happen on our small mini-ranch for the past couple of years but don't quite know how to make it happen without inviting potential problems into my home.

I think it would be great to have a variety of "down home" gals getting together to share their interests so we could learn from each other.

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

What if we don't know anything. Can we still come? hehe!

I fly for free, so depending upon the airport....you might see me!

Carol... I would love for you to come! I'm going to not try and think about the trouble that could come with this. lol

Lisa...I would love for you to come too!!!! Believe me Honey, you know plenty!!!!! LOL! But, if you feel like you don't, you can still come and injoy.

I just need to come up with a good date on when to do this. Hhhmmmmmmm
