book club!

I was thinking about how you bought a bunch of books for your Kindle before you left and how you said you weren’t able to really get into Stones into Schools. I went to the library last week and picked up  a few books. My hope is that by the time you come home for R&R, I will be able to give you some good recommendations. I had in mind how much you liked The Dirty Life when I picked out my first batch of books.

I came across this book called Farewell, my Subaru which sounded intriguing and when I read the premise it seemed perfect. The author, Doug Fines, is a journalist with absolutely no agricultural background who buys a ranch in New Mexico to start raising goats, farming and reducing his carbon footprint, etc. Sound a little bit familiar?

I have to be honest with you, though. I am about a third of the way through this book and I don’t like it as much as The Dirty Life. I think the reason is because I find the author to be sort of….annoying… so it’s hard for me to get behind him. He does use the word “epic” in the title of his book, after all. I think he is growing on me, though. Plus, what he is doing and the shenanigans he gets himself into are pretty amazing. I am definitely going to finish the book and I think you will like it. The author kind of reminds me of you, funny and a little bit annoying but becoming more lovable as times goes on. Just kidding!

p.s. Is it bad that I forgot how to properly write the title of a book? Aaahh!

p.p.s. When you retire from the Army can we start a farm??!!

I recently moved from Ohio to Colorado to be with my new husband and we are extremely excited to finally start our life together. We wanted to create this blog as a way to let our family and friends back home see what is going on with us since we don't always talk to everyone on the phone all the time.
