Emma as a 50s Housewife
For some reason, Emma struck me as a 50s housewife this morning. She'd gotten all prettied up with makeup and Joanna helped curl her hair. Emma has a love for Chanterelle mushrooms, so she was chopping them up and sautéing them with garlic and butter and olive oil. It was delicious.
Emma's been great today. She played with Duncan and Berry. We played baseball in the backyard, with Berry as our catcher. During the library run, she stocked up on books like The Teen's Guide to World Domination and The Teen's Guide to Helping Our Oceans, Rivers, and Other Aquatic Things. Emma, who is watching over my shoulder, tells me I should add The Girl's Guide to Style.
You can add "chicken wrangling" to her list of skills. She had this giant brussle-sprout stem that she was waving around, trying to get the chickens to behave. It was a sight to behold.
