What an unusual dream this morning.  Time was wonky and fast-forwarded through several pieces that would be important to a consistent story.  There's no helping that flaw to this recollection.

I was attracted to this man.  His car was having problems with overheating.  We were traveling back to our home cities in some sort of caravan.  During some stopover point, we ended up on a "make out hill" at dusk where lots of cars were parked under the sky. I ended up at his car (still overheating badly) and we chatted while it cooled down.  We eventually kissed.

Now we're at a different hillside, just the two of us in daytime.  I don't quite remember sex any more, so maybe that's why the dream skipped that significant part of the story.  *laugh*  His car had overheated so much that pipes were glowing (very unrealistically) white hot.  I'm pouring water over them trying to cool them down while he goes off into the meadow.  I'm having some success cooling down the car engine, when he comes back with an armful of oat stalks.  I know what they look like because I've grown them in my garden before.  He sits down cross-legged and starts thrashing them on the ground to pick up the seeds and eat them one by one.  I'm watching him and remembering that I find back-to-nature simplicity quite attractive.

End-of-dream as the kitten starts annoying the older cat, and their scuffle wakes me up.  I eventually crawl out of bed to wander online.  I find an email waiting for me that announces a $1000 sweepstakes event at http://www.homefarming.com/ where I apparently already have an account.  I'd forgotten all about it.  I log in, though, and submit my entry for today.  I now have a chance at $1000 to help build my "Ultimate Home Farm", as the contest says.  Honestly, $1000 doesn't go very far at all, but I suppose every little bit helps.

I guess I'll have to plant some oats this year, eh?  I only have rice and corn (in my "grain" category) planted indoors so far.  It's still not quite warm enough to plan any new seeds outdoors.  The ground hasn't fully thawed yet.

so do your remember what your were feeling emotionally during the dream?

eating wild oats & red hot pipes you were desperate to cool down, Herr Doktor Freud would be so proud.

here, check out some farmporn (no, not that kind) from a friend of mine [livejournal.com profile] schnookiemuffin, she and her hubs are friends of mine who bought a couple acres out in smithville and are doing the small "hobby" farm thing.

you also might dig reading [livejournal.com profile] e_moon60 now that it is spring and her book is out maybe she'll start writing about her land again, she's converting a moderate sized chunk of hill country back into a native wildlife refuge

I love that your dreams are so detailed and memorable. Good luck with the home farm!
