Wondering

After about 3 inches of rain in the last two days, it turned COLD!  I think the wetness made it feel even worse.  My poor milk goats are shivering.  (I noticed the milk goats are more delicate than the fainters when it comes to cold weather.  Wimps.) After getting everyone as comfortable as they can be, I wanted some comfort for myself, so I grabbed some hot tea and looked through some magazines that my mom keeps for me to read after she's done with them.

Most of the magazines that Mom gives me are the house decorating kind.  I love to look at these.  Makes me wonder how other people live. (Although, I know these people don't really live like this.  I mean, where's the dirt, right?)  But, the magazines give me ideas of how I want to do the top part of the house whenever we start working on it again.

Okay, back on the subject.  As I look through the magazines, I see houses up in New England and I think, "I would love to live up there."   I mean who wouldn't?  Fresh seafood, cooler temps, and beautiful land.  Then I turn the page and I see a beautiful house in the desert.  I would love to live there!  No humidity, warm weather all year, and the beautiful rock.  I go back to looking at the magazines.  Oh look! The Rockies!........and it goes on and on.

Then I get this dreamy look on my face and I zone out for a while.  If money and family wasn't an issue, where would I live?  After about an hour or so of dreaming, I realize that I like where I live.  Four distinct seasons,(although as I get older I'm starting not to like the cold as much.) beautiful rolling hills, and bunches of rivers and streams to fish in.  Ya, I think I've found my perfect place.  If I could change anything around here, it would be the lack of work and work ethic.  But, that is everywhere now.  I think I'm happy right here.

Do you ever dream about moving?  If money and family wasn't an issue, where would you live?

So until next time,

If money wasn't an issue, I think we'd still live in the Ozarks. But on a few thousand acres of land. With the house smack in the middle of it. Oh, and snice money wasn't an issue, I'd have all the chiggers and ticks somehow eliminated from the entire acreage.
Isn't it great to love where you live?! :)

Yes it is great! But when you come up with some way of getting rid of all those things let me know okay?

I always thought I'd like to live within sight of the Rockies in Colorado, but if I really had that option, I would probably stay right where I am.

Dairy cows, especially Jerseys, suffer more from the cold than beef cows do. I've seen Jersey cows shivering in zero or below weather. I felt so sorry for them.

I thought about that too Donna. I've just heard horrible weather stories about being close to the Rockies! But they are beautiful!

Small Farm Girl,

If money wasn't an issue, I think we would want to move to Southern Idaho.
I love the country side, and the people.

At this moment? With this cold? A volcano will do thank you!

When we play the "what would you do if you won the Lotto" game, we realize we would live exactly where we do now. Maybe we'd get the floors refinished, and run electricity to the sheep barn - but pretty much, we are living the life we dreamed of. Well, and maybe not have to work at paying jobs...

even though I am grumbling right now, I already have. :)

I'd probably go to Missouri. With about 20 acres tillable and 60 wooded.
