I’d Rather Be…

I’d Rather Be…

…living in a commune on a farm.  I know a few folks that would like to join me in coexisting inside a little neighborhood helping eachother in our daily duties.  A place where fresh eggs came from our own chickens, fresh milk from our own goats & cows and fruits & veggies from our own gardens.  The flowers on the table would be hand picked from the yard every morning.  We would all help eachother cook fresh foods at most meals.  Houses would be sparkling clean from chore shifts.  We would pour homemade soaps and mix homemade cleansers.  Hand-knitted blankets, sweaters and mittens, sewn aprons and clothing.  Our children would always have playmates.  They would be homeschooled among the educators on the group, bouncing from home to home to learn everything from music to farming, hands on.  Close quarters, but not too close.  My husband would be my husband and my husband only.  I’m not talking about polygamy or Amish country here, I’m talking about extended family and community living.  Modernized.  You could spend as much or as little time with whomever you choose.  It makes sense if you think about it.  We would all be happy, everything would be sufficient.   What do you think?  Who’s in?!
