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,
Small Farm Girl, wonderer
