My little slice of Earth

20 Feb

Daily Prompt: A Plot of Earth You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please. What’s the plan?

dream homeI’d have a log cabin built, with 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, a study/library, family room, living room, and music room (gotta have that for Mr. Rockstar so he and his friends can jam in it) with a garage. (Five bedrooms so that our three kids (between us) would each have a room to stay in when they visit) and a guest bedroom.) I’d want a large kitchen, with lots of cabinets and storage space. I’d want butcher block counter tops. I’d like for the master bedroom to have plenty of room for our furniture, with room to walk around so I don’t have to squeeze through the small space between the foot of the bed and the edge of the dresser (like I do now). I’d want a walk-in closet of my very own with a vanity. And the master bathroom would need 2 sinks with lots of storage space and a walk-in shower and a jacuzzi bathtub big enough for the two of us. I’d, of course, want a garage and a pool in the backyard.

I’d also want to make sure that I had a small pond on the property with a little bench under weeping willow tree so that I can sit on my bench under my tree and read and watch the fish jump in the pond. I’m not really big on cutting down trees, especially oaks, so I’d want to maintain as much of the natural land as possible. Part of what is so amazing about my plot of earth, my small slice of heaven, would be that it’s my sanctuary. I can read while sitting on that bench by the weeping willow, or I can write in my library/study. I will provide my own veggies and herbs from my garden, and I’ll be able to do so naturally.

Then I’d grab a yogurt and a bagel for breakfast. Afterward I’d get the morning paper and read it while I sip coffee. I’d enjoy cooking in that kitchen. There would be room to move around, and my washer and dryer would have their own room–they would not be in my kitchen–Like they are now. Nope, I’d have all new stainless steel appliances in my kitchen. And I’d have a laundry room.

But I’ve gotten off track, now I’m talking more about my dream home than my plot o’Earth. So let me get back to the other stuff. Since I have a grandson having a play area for him is of the utmost importance. I’d have to get him a swing set, a sandbox, and a few other yard toys for him. He’ll be able to have a great time in MiMi’s yard. And that would cover it, I think. Mimi’s little slice of Earth would definitely be paradise for all of us. Friends and family welcome.  swingset
