Dream: Farm Girl Grandma

My handmade Farm Girl Doll

A few months ago I ordered a magazine subscription for my daughter. [Although, I really would have enjoyed the magazine also! I figured I could read them after she was done with them.] It was 'Mary Janes Farm' magazine. It's packed with all things handmade and she has enjoyed them very much! You might want to check out the magazine and their site

One of my greatest dreams is to live on a farm. I would really like to have a few acres here in Oregon and build a blueberry farm [with my daughter's family.] I really would like to be a farm girl, er . . . grandma! I once lived in the mountains on a seven acre place. This was my first taste of COUNTRY! Even though it was hard living there, in a ramshackle house originally built in the early 1900's raising six kids, the experience stuck with me; sort of like the old saying: "You can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy." I started gardening when I lived there; the kids had 4H projects of lambs and pigs; we had a horse; and I tried raising chickens!

I've lived other places since then, but the country life is still what I long for. I like the peace, the wide open space, and it's still my dream!

My dream, too. I sure do miss those days up at that cabin. There's just nothing like it!

I don't miss them much. Short time periods are ok. :)
