It seems an apt definition for the Six Random Things meme, erratic, unplanned, haphazard. Especially since we were tagged for it in triplets... :) We were tagged by Tiffany,, Carla, and Amanda. So, shall we begin? And see what sort of things pop randomly onto this page...
Rules: Link to the person who tagged you.... list the rules, write six random things, tag six people, letting them know you tagged them, and let the person who tagged you know you've written the post.
#1. Emma is a voracious and rather selfish reader, who grabs her book when she should be doing other things....
#2. Johanna has slightly crooked sapphire eyes, which her brother pointed out to her one day, and now she has become very proud of them. (yes, this is Johanna writing...;-)
#3. Emma loved studying the history of Ancient Egypt and has a peculiar enjoyment of Greek myths and legends.
#4. Johanna has always dreamed of being famous...(I know, shocking!)
#5. Emma has worn glasses since she was 7 years old.
#6. Johanna has had the job of feeding the chickens and gathering the eggs since the age of 9.
#7. Emma is fast becoming a Dickens snob, or should I say, a Dickens aficionado.
#8. Johanna's favorite evening activity is watching a B&W movie with her family whilst drinking a mug of tea of coffee.
#9. Emma... (are my random things all too closely related to books? I shall try another course) Emma wears sweaters, even in the summer, because she tends to be quite cold natured. Warmth? Ahhh... that is comfort.
#10. Johanna likes to take walks under the moonlight at night, listening to nighttime sounds and feeling the warmth and beauty of our Creator, surrounding her.
#11. Let's see... the last one. Perhaps I can make it really good.:) Emma spends half of her day in other worlds, whether she is buried in the imagination of her own stories, or delving into the tales written by another....
#12. Johanna tries to keep up with Emma's constant book suggestions but is still only getting through the classic "must-reads"...ho, hum...
Did you notice that we went to #12.? Yes, of course. But we have an excuse, see? 2 times 6 is 12, after all.
Oh! Oh! One more! #13. Johanna and Emma both are crazy about spending time with their family.... they are such an amazing family!!!

Time is drifting by... our thoughts are captured by things on opposite spheres, on the death of a friend of a friend, and on the joyous tidings of a new life to be birthed to two very dear friends. It makes us rather sober, seeing life and death so close together. How can our own small sorrows and joys matter anymore?
Only God knows.... And that is more than enough.
Emma and Johanna
P.S. Johanna loves the Andrew Sisters!!!! Bie Mir Bist Du Schoen, please let me explain. Bie Mir Bist Du Schoen means you're grand! Bie Mir Bist Du Schoen, it's such an old refrain but let me try to explain, Bie Mir Bist De Schoen means that you're grand!
