A Farmer's Wife on a Date

Cultivating a DreamYou know you’re a farmer’s wife when you go on a date to an actual restaurant that serves you food that you neither cooked nor grew and you talk about chicken poop.

And you’re OK with that.

That’s what Tom and I did the other day. I needed a break. A place where people talked and lived and worked without dirt.

So my husband took me to the local Thai restaurant.

After our appetizer, I quieted. My mind drifted back to our farm and our chickens and dogs and kittens and crops.

It’s not that I don’t love all those things. Sometimes, I just need a break.

Us too! The other night we were so excited to have my mother watch our kids so we could have a little us time. And what did we do on our lovely date night? We went to a construction site to haul wood back to our farm to help build our future cabin. Traditional date nights are WAY over rated. Thanks for sharing!
