I've been reading Animal, Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver for the second time. It is a true account of her familys experiment to eat only what they could produce or procure locally. The book is written over the course of a year. Woven in amongst the story are recipes, meal plans, and information about the food industry. Some of the tales of big business are shocking. This book is very enjoyable and informative. It made me want to run away to the country and live on a farm. I really do think I would enjoy living in the country. I hope the man I marry is up for the challenge.

I am so happy. I moved into my own apartment which is close to school. I love the area. I live in a beautifully landscaped apartment complex. It's on the edge of town and there is so much beautiful nature all around me. It's very quiet here and I feel so safe. I haven't had any problems sleeping.
I love being in school. I love my classes. I'm so glad to be challenged intellectually again. I think I will take summer classes this year.
I have to drive a half an hour to and from work four times a day which might be not so great but it is such a beautiful drive and I get to listen to music the whole way. I love listening to music and driving. Especially when it is sunny. Ahhhh I hope this contented feeling lasts. I quite enjoy it.
