I'm still in the Twin Cities, visiting my sister. (This is still Emma.) Mylo's back on the farm. He took the pickup on tour to Iowa, he's home again now. He said on the phone how much they loved him, and how much Iowa smells like pigs.
My sister and I fixed a fancy breakfast for the whole family this morning -- I made my special beet pancakes -- then we drove to this farm to visit a corn maze. Corn mazes must be a lot of fun for city folks, but we farm wives see plenty of corn as it is, and I don't need anyone putting me in the middle of a field of corn and telling me which way to walk. I stayed in the gift shop. ... Click for More
Dis is Emma again. I'm still in the Twin Cities, visiting my sister. I declare, they are goofed up around here! Nobody gets up until about seven in the morning; half the day is gone by then! I was up at 4:00, as usual, and with no cows to milk I had a lot of time on my hands. I knitted 3 afghans, and I baked bread.
My sister took me out on the town today. We went out to a restaurant for lunch -- my sister said it was a Mexican restaurant, but my taco didn't even have sauerkraut in it, so I don't think it was authentic. Then she took me shopping. We went to six different clothing stores, but I didn't buy anything. You can't do chores in those clothes.
Finally my sister took me to that IKEA store. She sure talked a lot about that place. There's nice furniture and such, but it turns out they just sell you a big box, and you have to put the furniture together yourself. I'd like to see the John Deere dealer try pulling that stunt like that.
We're going to a corn maze tomorrow. I put the butter and salt in my purse already. ... Click for More
Mylo finally got those tax applications finished and mailed to the Infernal Revenue Service. I said I would leave on my trip the day after that, and I was right -- I did. Mylo cleaned the egg crates out of the back seat of the go-to-town car, and I threw my suitcase in there and left town! Off I went to visit my sister in the Twin Cities, and now I'm here! It takes a long time to drive here, especially with so many rummage sales to stop at. Down here in the Twin Cities, some of the roads have four lanes. Four! You'd think at least one of the lanes would be gravel.
