I sit here and stare out the window in the kitchen where the desk is and watch the chickens, kids, goats and wild birds do as they please in the dirt out back. The sun is going down and it is nice to look out and it not be so bright from the AZ summer sun. The color gradient is picking up some pink and purple as the sun begins to set.
I am imagining looking out the window in my future mountain home and seeing the same scene with a lot more green injected. I must admit that I am a sucker for greenery. I love all things green! I am not one of those people whose ideal vacation is a trip to the beach. Nope, not me! I will always take the mountains. Now, if the mountain happens to be on the coast that will work too. I want a large front porch with about 3 steps up so that I can place potted plants along the sides and additional pots on the porch. There will be comfy chairs to sit in and watch things go by as well as a hammock to swing in the breeze.
Our dream/plan is to work super hard this year so we can move up north to the White Mountains and start making it work. I know that there are folks out there who will say we are crazy, why would we want to do something like that and didn’t we learn our lesson in New Mexico. Well New Mexico wasn’t the awesome move that it was supposed to be and I am glad for the experience. But this time I will heed the mountains call.
