blog dreams

I had two blogger dreams in the early morning hours (when I always have my strangest/most vivid dreams):

1. I went to the home of a blogger named Plain Jane (not to be confused with Neighbor Jane). As far as I know, Plain Jane is only a figment of my imagination, and she was anything but plain. Her home was lovely and contained every type of room and closet you could ever hope to have. She had handmade quilts and homemade chocolates. Everything was simple yet beautiful. The grounds were sprawling and could only be described as an estate. Jane herself was just as gracious and charming as could be. Her home was filled with people, family and friends, and lots of children who entertained my children. I felt completely at ease. (In fact, she reminded me of an old family friend of Marc's family, Joan Cutler.)

In her kitchen, Jane had a wall calendar where every month represented one of her favorite blogs. The current month was dedicated to Chez Moi and had photos of Eva on it -- the only thing about the dream that was slightly disconcerting.

2. I was at Jessie's house and Lelly was there as well. I guess maybe Timm was out of town or something, because it was definitely a girls' only weekend. We all felt completely at ease with each other, as though we had known each other for years and years.

Blog dreams. That was a first.

I had a dream about Jill about a year ago. It was weird. She was telling me to get my act together. haha

Oh gee, what a funny post, Michelle. Especially because I have been called Plain Jane longer than I have been called Jane Payne. But, you're right, it couldn't have been me because I don't have a calendar of Eva pictures in my kitchen.

I can't wait to check back on your comments to see if others have blog dreams. I have, but was too embarrassed to admit it and even thought, "Oh man. You must be spending too much time with blogs, it's not like you dream about the newspaper."

However, if you are dreaming about Lelly AND bloggers yet to be discovered, then I'll happily admit that I, too, have dreamed about bloggers.

How funny! I like the one about Lelly- that could totally happen right?

I have had a dream or two about bloggers, it is kinda weird when you wake up :)

Jill said...

How funny that Alison had a dream about me!

I know I've had dreams about bloggers before, but I can't remember them right now. My most vivid dreams are always in the morning too or during my REM sleep achieving Sunday naps.

Amy said...

Funny! I've never had blogging dreams. But then, I never remember my dreams. So maybe I have. I have to say, I wouldn't mind visiting Plain Jane's house!

carlo said...

i often *dream* that i will meet up with my favorite bloggers.

though my eyes are wide open!

lelly said...

girls weekend in north carolina could TOTALLY happen (and hannah, i would expect you there, too!)

i once had a dream that i went to the movies with a bunch of bloggers (i remember carlo, kristi, jill, natasha, michelle o. and michelle a. being there. but the movie theatre was filled to the brim with "just us bloggers."

i hated to wake up from that dream!

Amy said...

So funny, Michelle! I totally think I've had a Lelly dream, though I can't remember the details anymore.

Diana said...

I'd love to go to plain Janes house that sounds incredible and cozy.
I don't think I've ever dreamed about bloggers but it would be cool.

Susan said...

I always find it so interesting when someone recalls a dream. I seldom if ever remember dreams---occationally if it is a bad dream, maybe! But only for a very short time. And, when I say seldom, I mean maybe once every 5 years or so!

Interesting.....quite a lot of detail you rememeber!

Claudissima said...

oh wow...i WAS LOVING Plain Jane's home......too bad it was a dream, and worst, I was not invited! hum......
how nice, I don't know that I had dream of blogs, but i FEEL so at ease inviting everyone that I know...to my home, only Jill has comed and Becca to the turit (resembling a castle...can't spell it right), but nobody else!

crystal said...

This is like the dreams you have when your in a language class and you start dreaming in French the 2nd semester.

charlotte said...

That is pretty much hilarious. And I never remember details from my dreams--that's cool you remembered so much!

Kelly said...

I'm sure a blogger or two have appeared in my dreams. The calendar part cracked me up. That would definitely be disconcerting!

marc said...

As long as Plain Jane is like Joan Cutler then it's not too creepy. I haven't had any blog dreams yet, so I guess (as Crystal suggested) I'm not very fluent in "Blog" yet.

Amie said...

Pretty funny. It always throws me a little bit when you have dreams about people in the past... it feels so real and familiar that it takes me a few hours to get my barrings again.

wende said...

hey can i come to the girl's only blogger weekend?

and OF COURSE chez moi was on her list of favorites, it's on mine too! :)

i love that you're dreaming about blogging....

Denise said...

Let's all meet at Plain Jane's house! Sounds like a plan to me.

No blogger dreams for me yet, but sometimes I do write posts in my mind as I'm falling asleep. Can dreams be far away?

Rachel said...

So dreamy! okay that was cheesy of me. But I just had to tell you, I made that black bean and corn tortilla pie - yuuuuummmmmmmmyyyyyy! So good! Thanks for posting the recipe!

Price Cream Parlor said...

This is so funny! I haven't had any blog dreams as of yet - I find it odd and a bit scary when I dream of people in my ward though! - Funny about the calendar of Eva!

April said...

I would have LOVED to get together with you this last weekend...I secretly thought about dropping by Creative Friday, but thought you might think that was weird, and of course I wouldn't know where to show up...

But I thought it was interesting that as I thought about Utah Valley, you immediately came to mind.
