Someday


Someday I am going to live in the middle of the countryside. I will be surrounded by open fields and grassy meadows. I will lean on a white rail fence and watch the horses. There will be a red barn in the distance and a dirt track leading to it.


The air will be cool and fresh, filled with the call of red-winged blackbirds and swallows swooping through the sky.  I will stroll through the meadows and down the dirt road. I will pick blackberries and wild blueberries and apples from the trees at the end of field, each in their own season.



Afternoons will be spent sitting on my porch and drinking iced tea and eating freshly baked pie and only my favorite people in the world will sit there with me. We will chat about books and the meaning of life and then we will sit in silence because that is what you can do with your favorite people.



The world will be quiet and slow and beautiful. It will be filled with all the time I need to appreciate what is around me. There will be wildflowers and grasses gone to seed and leaves of changing colors. There will be snow-covered hills and nights by the fire. There will be rainy days when I curl up on the porch with a book or two. Long walks and peaceful days and cosy nights will stretch in front of me.

I wish it all was mine.

Someday.

  1. You need to quit your job immediately, find a literary agent, and get your writing and photos published! You write the most elegant and relatable posts.

    1. It will be divine. And we can sit on my front porch and discuss books.

    2. Perfect. Once in a while, we can take a ramble through my extensive gardens behind my house.

    3. And then we can wander down through the meadow to the stream and sit and listen to the sound of the water.

    4. And after lunch, we can saddle up a couple of horses and take a liesurely ride through the woods.

      Also, I've nominated you for a Liebster Award. :-)

  3. What a lovely post. You've just about described my life now, I feel so lucky. Mind you I only fairly recently reached this stage in life - after my husband retired!

    1. Work does interfere with the enjoyment of life, doesn't it? You are fortunate. I hope you are enjoying every moment of it.
