We are still managing Emma's fever.
She does fine during the day and sometime in the late afternoon, she starts getting warm again. Sigh. This feels never-ending. She's feeling pretty sorry for herself, as well she should. I'm honestly enjoying her company, though.
We went out this morning, cameras in both of our hands, to take some pictures for my class.
I'm still working on the assignment from a couple of weeks ago. I have an image pretty much ready for turn-in, but I still want to do one more. I'll show them both soon. I promise.
We were forging through some rural territory today, looking for a house in disrepair. I know what I want to find, I just can't seem to find it. It always goes that way, doesn't it? It doesn't matter if I'm looking for a dress pattern to sew or a hat pattern to knit - I never seem to find quite what I want. In some cases, I just decide to make it up on my own, but it's pretty hard to make up a house that's caved in from the roof.
While on our hunt, though, we did find this lovely specimen:
It's not in bad enough shape to use for my assignment, but I love it very much. I kind of wanted to move in right on the spot. I would have coffee on that porch, sitting in a rocking chair, every morning. And if I lived in that house, I'd need to get my dream car. It's an old, blue pickup truck with curvy lines and spots of rust here and there. Yep. That's my dream car.
Emma thought it might be nice to live there too. She was hoping the horses in a nearby pasture came with the house. It's been a bit chilly and she noted that they were still "wearing their blankets." She thought this was unbearably cute.
