I’ve never made a secret of my desire to live on a farm. I’ve convinced my hubby that Eastern Washington is definitely the place for us. He’s agreed to move there, when the kids are out of school and we’re ready to become farmers. I won’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen. I’m counting on my cousin and uncle to find a great deal on farm land for us, so the perfect home can just “happen” and we can actually make the move.
There’s just something about wide open spaces that I love. Well, I love the sunshine too.
Yesterday I asked him if he was ever going to let me have chickens (meaning that I want them now and I want to put them in my small backyard). He said I could have chickens when we moved to the farm, but that the coyotes would probably eat them. I guess I’ll be needing a really great barn to go along with my little farm house. (By the way, anyone have any great ideas on how to build a cute farm house that is a rambler? I’m assuming that we’ll be old and gray by the time we get around to this, so we’ll be looking for a single story home. I haven’t seen any rambler/farmhouse plans that I love.)
I think I’ll grow pumpkins and market to local elementary schools for field trips. Of course, I’ll have chickens, bunnies, goats, 2 dogs, and a horse or two.
