old dreams

I know I am more complicated than my dreams.
But what did I use to dream of?
I wanted to be a homemaker, wife and mother.
Remember the Ethan Allen furniture catalog?
Remember the Emily Post Etiquette book?
I wanted neat and clean.
I wanted cozy.
I wanted planned landscaping with flowers.
I wanted a dog.
A vegetable graden.
Reading corner, Overstuffed chair, end table.
I wanted a quiet life.
I think I can still have this.
Just finished reading Chap 8 in Maida’s Little Camp where they take a walk in the woods and learn about trail blazing. I’ve always loved trees and being in nature. I love leaning how to do things.
