Mr. Wonderful and I talk often of our dreams to own a house with some land, maybe a couple horses and defiantly chickens. Let's take a closer look at how I see it compared to him.
My thought would be Tennessee Walking Horse......weekends riding the trails together. How peaceful would that me and I know how much Mr. Wonderful loves to ride.
However, when Mr. Wonderful thinks of horses this is what he sees........a mud flinging Chevy! Really, no way that could ever be peaceful!!?!
I see them as egg layers.......well, maybe a little more then that, cute fluffy feathers like a Silkie or a beautiful red one like a Rhode Island Red. There would be Huey, Dewey and Louie and Sara.....you get the picture.
I have always admired sheep grazing in fields. Well, this weekend we went to the fair and I came face to face with this little beauty. I so wanted to take "ewe" home with me!!
Conversation with Mr. Wonderful:
Me: Honey, when we get our house can I have a few sheep.
Mr. Wonderful: WHAT!?!? (laughing)
Me: SHEEP, you know the ones with the really long curly hair like we saw at the fair.
Mr. Wonderful: Really, this farm is getting a little crowded!
Me: But Honey, I could spin my own wool and make my own organic dyes.
Mr. Wonderful Laughs and says........
Me: NO!!! You can not eat Tilly and, oh you just cannot!!!
Mr. Wonderful: LAUGHING
Though we both see things a little different when it comes to what will be going on at the farm we both know more then anything we want to be out of the apartment life and in our own home with a garden, and chickens. We are one more day closer to our GREEN ACRES!
Do you have farm dreams, do share them with us!?
