Well... it's been 6 years since we moved out to the acreage.
So I guess that means it's been 6 years since I first started thinking about getting a horse and some chickens!
And about 5 years since I told the kids we are going to get a horse and chickens one day.
So far it's looking like one day means the same to me as it did to my Mom when she said, 'yes we'll go to Disneyland one day!'
I got over not going to Disneyland, so I am sure the kids will get over this, right?!
But I really do hope one day does happen... soon.
And the funny thing is; I could make it happen... this decision is actually up to me. Getting a horse is how Clayton talked me into moving out here, so he has to be on board.
Unfortunately I like to day dream about adventures I might have one day and not actually buy stuff.
Turns out this transfers over to buying a horse.
Not my favourite.
Couldn't the perfect horse; suitable for me but also great with kids, just show up in our horse pasture?
I'd leave a big wad of cash out there on a fence post for the deliverer!
The horse pasture is ready and waiting... Clayton did his part... now we're just waiting on Kimberly! ONE DAY!
But in the mean time we have acquired some funny farm pets.
The kind that just show up, without notice, at your place.
That works for me!
The salamander we kept for one day and then let free.
The bat we tried to nurse back to health. But to no avail. Rest in peace little batty.
The princess and lion seem to have taken up residence here! ;)
