I had a few beautiful dreams last night - one included something we did the other day, walking up and down the road looking at the property thinking of things we will do in the future here. I saw a white flower growing by the side of the road - which, I did in real life and it was a particularily pretty blackberry flower. However, in the dream before my eyes it turned into a white lily with shaded to purplish black petals and spots and pink insides - something beautiful and striking. I was worried dreaming of lilies was a bad thing - but it is actually exactly what we were doing - looking to the future, planning, making provisions. Very nice.
It rained gently last night and I know the gardens enjoyed it. I have Wednesday off from work and we will likely be out there again fiddling with little things here and there. I've told Mark I have been thinking about different things we could raise out here - reasons for a barn and a fence and further etc... I am researching turkeys instead of chickens. Every time one runs in front of me across the road I think about how hard they would be to catch - but then, if they were already caught (as farm turkeys start out at the very least) it would be partway there.
Esme has a small poison ivy reaction by her eye - but it is already better than yesterday. We washed her hands immediately after she grabbed a leaf yesterday but that was without soap at the hydrant and she did touch her face before we could get inside to the soap.
