Idealistic Dreams

 (don't forget the enjoyable blogs giveaway - enter through Friday)

We all have dreams for our children's lives.

My dream has my children living on 10 acres, out in the country . . . tossing scratch to the chickens . . . weeding our large garden . . . saddling up their horses and running through meadows of wildflowers.

Never mind that chickens scare me or that I can't even remember to water my 2 tomato plants or that the kids don't keep the two dogs brushed, fed, and watered, let alone a barn-full of horses.

Never mind reality.

Let me live in my idealistic world.

Where Youngest Son spends his afternoons vigorously currying the horses.

(I said vigorously, Dear!)

And where Middle Son is passionately involved with the hoof-cleaning and shoeing of horses.

(Passionately, Love!)

Yes, these are the dreams I have for my children.

And if you can't have it in reality,

An afternoon at the Horse Ranch will also do quite nicely.


  1. Increase the acreage, subtract the horses [we borrow the horses] and that is my's
    a lot of hard work. I think sometimes it would just be easier to visit. No, not really, I do love it.
    Have a wonderful Monday.

  2. Oh my goodness...your images are STUNNING! I love the colour and feel of them...especially the last one. You really need to blow that up and frame it!

    Now dream is a little farm as well...and yes I sooooo want chickens. What is that all about anyways?

    Hugs for a great new week. xoxo

  3. I have dreams of a country farm... but I am trying to be content in my suburban zoo. However I do wonder how long I could keep chickens in my backyard before my neighbors report me to the HOA.
