Then it got me thinking about how much I love driving along and seeing barns...especially old red ones.
I especially love the old weathered barns with the chippy red paint...
A light came on in my head and I realized that THIS is where I want to live when I grow up...and I want an old red barn:-) If I believed in a "next life", I would say that this is where it would take place.
Since I don't, I can only think that maybe this is my "mansion" in heaven since I would love an old farmhouse more than a shiny new mansion anyway. Seems like a simple request, huh?:-)
Well, maybe with not so much snow...but I would like a few flurries on Christmas, thank you very much!
And if I were lucky enough to have a sweet cow too, then I would be very lucky indeed:-)
And I can tell you this, she might give us milk but I could never send her off to be a cheeseburger...no way, no how!!!
Of course, we would definitely need a few of these cuties to play with.
Notice how I already have names picked out? hahaha
And I know I am meant to go to a pretty little church like this...
My husband knows this is my dream. (well, one of them:-) He once looked at a job in horse country and to get me interested, he told me we could buy a small horse farm. I was so excited, until he told me we were NOT getting horses but at least I would have fields to run around with my dogs. Hmmm...nice, but not quite there.
Did you know there are companies that will convert an old barn into a magnificent farmhouse?
How's this for a place to enjoy your morning coffee...
Even I wouldn't mind cooking in this kitchen...
And Thanksgiving dinner around this table...
Heck, it might even get me to eat a bite of turkey...but then again, probably not:-)
Well, there you go...another of my many daydreams.
I know what you're thinking...enough with the barns already, right?
Not so fast. Check back for Part II of The Old Red Barn...or What I Want to do When I Grow Up!
Have a wonderful week...
