My love of that house and its surroundings is what fuels my desire to purchase an old farmhouse with some land. I want chickens, and pigs. I want goats. I want to garden. I want fruit trees and a grape arbor. I’d even like to try my hand at bee keeping. If only I could get over the fact that they are BEES. Ugh. 🙄

 I want solitude. 

I want a big kitchen with lots of counter space!


When I took the hubby by the old place last year, I was in shock at how small the house actually is. When I was a kid, it was a big, old house. 

It’s not big. Lol. I actually went and looked up the property online. It’s about 1100 square feet. It looks tiny compared to how I remember it! Perspective is a funny thing.

We are slowly working towards the dream of having an old farm house. The trouble lies in where we are. Pickings are slim here. I’ve been on the hunt for over a year.

If we sell this place quickly, and before we’ve found what we want, we have no where to live! 

If we find what we want, we need to sell this in order to purchase that! And selling a house here is NOT an easy or quick process. So, I am not really sure what we will do. *sigh*

I’m guessing we need to sell this first. We’d need to rent a place til we found what we wanted. Finding places to rent around here is like finding a needle in a haystack. 

We have our work cut out for us, for sure.
