If television is telling the truth, Alaska is the trendiest place in the world to live right now.
Remote Alaska specifically. And I have to admit that whenever I see it I think, yeah, I could live there. I could totally live without running water or a bathroom inside the house. For a day.
Remote Alaska isn’t for the faint of heart or the lazy. Or vegetarians. Of course I’m basing all of my generalizations on things I made up in my head and things I’ve seen on television shows. So I think we can surmise that it’s all very, very accurate.
Now, I know I’ll probably never move to Alaska, but the one thing I could see myself actually doing is moving to a farm. Just a small one with a couple of goats and a few more chickens. In fact I’m not sure how I got this far in my life without moving to a hobby farm. When I was in television a “psychic” told me she saw me living in a condo on the lakeshore in downtown Toronto. She was “psychicing” this observation based on the fact that I worked in television in downtown Toronto, and judging by first appearances I was a downtown/condo/hip and happening kind of gal. I was not. Never was and never will be.
I do love big cities and the look of the lifestyle. Swishing around a lofty condo, wine in one hand, art gallery flyer in the other. But it’s not who I am at my core.
I like art galleries and great restaurants and all those other things you find in big cities. I just like fields, streams and bales of straw more.
So today I’d like to ask you, out of curiosity. Where and what is your dream home?
Super-beautiful fence by Eden Design
Mine is an old stone farmhouse with a vegetable garden surrounded by a split rail fence on 4 acres. A gravel driveway so you can hear visitors arriving with the crunch of the road. One dog, two cats, 10 chickens and 2 goats.
Now you go …
And have a good weekend!
