Well I still haven’t started subbing. I’ll be calling the school for the 15 millionth time today to check in. Timing is running short and money is very scarce but I know things will work out. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I can at least get a few weeks of work before I go.
With all my free time I have been reading a lot on my kindle and watching way too much tv.
I will admit my spirit has been pretty low the last month because I feel like I am accomplishing so little and my lifestyle is so much less active than I was in Oregon.
But I read a book on my kindle that I had bought months and months ago about a year on a sustainable family farm in Illinois.
It really brought me back to me and my dreams, reminding me what my ultimate goal is. After these 4 crazy adventures I have planned I want land and a farm and a family.
This is the 3rd book like this I’ve read and each one just feeds my dreams and desires.
Here are some photos from the book off my kindle.
The book I read before that was the dirty life lol.
This one was about a newlywed couple who rebuilt a farm and started an all encompassing CSA (community supported agriculture) program that ran year round and also supplied meat, cheese, maple syrup etc. Their goal was to make grocery shopping almost unnecessary for a family.
The first book I ever read like this was called Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I blogged about it a few years ago.
It’s amazing how much a book can influence your life. Just look at the PCT, I didn’t even know it existed until I read Wild about 2 years ago.
Have you read anything lately that has inspired you?
Talk to you soon!
