I have a fantasy of someday owning an old farmhouse property off in the country. Something with "out buildings". I've always wanted to own out buildings, maybe turn one into my studio. My fantasy also involves a big garden, a small orchard, chickens and me in pigtails, a gingham dress, chewing on a wheat stalk.
Then I'd carry in my garden harvest into my oversize farmhouse kitchen. You know, those huge 1940s kitchens where there was room for a breakfast table, and high ceilings allowing for more cabinets than you know what to do with. Maybe I'd do some canning, or maybe bake a pie.
I'd have enough free time to dabble in all manner of "country skills", making everything by hand, from scratch, using hand-powered gadgets. The phrase "You MADE this??" would be frequently heard.
On warm, sunny days…
