Looking at Real Estate Listings

Hi Neighbors!

How about real estate Santa Monica!  Not a chance.  My personal dream home would be a cabin or ranch house on several acres.  After spending several (as in ten) years on the road and now living in a three bedroom home, we still feel like we don't have enough room.  Even the children were complaining the other day as we made some changes in bedrooms.  Needless to say, I told them if we could live on the road in an RV for years, we could survive here!

Now, I picture my dream home, somewhere in Tennessee or maybe Missouri.  My daughter would enjoy Texas.  I would like a 4 bedroom home with at least two bathrooms and perhaps a half bath.  I would like the kitchen to have an island in the center with a rack above it for hanging pots, pans and utensils.  Of course I want a casual dining room off of the kitchen.  The kitchen would be stocked with pots and pans that are large enough for a family of eight!  I know, I am supposed to supply those.

I would LOVE to have the deck I have here attached to the back of my dream home.  I would really miss it if we moved.   Maybe I just need to marry off some children!  I enjoy my back deck and my front patio.  Especially in fall and winter with a couple of rockers to enjoy.  We would still like a little more room though.

The home would have to include at least 5 acres as we have a couple of dogs, 1 cat, a few rabbits and the children would like to have more.  We also had to give our chickens up recently and we would love to have them again.  And there would need to be room for a garden, both flowers and vegetables.  My twelve year old loves gardening.

I would enjoy a mountain view, or perhaps a stream nearby.  I am a country girl at heart, and really do not care for the hustle and bustle of cities.  Maybe someday.  For now I am happy right here enjoying the four seasons, relaxing on the front porch or back deck, spending time with my family.  It is still fun to dream though!
