75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 14, 1938
This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.
Starting March 1, a weekly comment on these daily entries appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Friday of the week, will continue, with links to some of these daily entries.
Here is the daily entry for Monday, March 14:
Up at 8:00. Bussy has a bad cold. Stayed in bed. I went to the farm at about 10:00. Had an order for curtains to mail, and ran down a pint of floor paint. Pete had just gotten there. Pete gave south bedroom a 2nd coat. I gave kitchen walls a 3rd coat. Over to Smiths to dinner. Betty & I did dishes while the others voted. LVene helped us in the pm. She finished papering the kitchen & pantry. Painted the living room floor once. Home at 7:00. Lillian came & she & I went to hear Mario Copelli. Cleaned up & to bed.
My comments: I enjoy hearing the names of the different room they were working on. I only know of one or two photos I have of this house, and they are outside, of course, and I am in them, so it is about a year and a half later. But, I cannot come across those photos… oh, well. Perhaps later.
A Kitchen Pantry today; did it look the same or different 75 years ago today?
