75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 15, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 15, 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.
 
They do 'clean-up' real nice!!  ;-)


Here is the daily entry for Tuesday, March 15:

Up before 8:00. Went down to the plant. Helped Mrs. Marnette. Looked over her work. Found other work for her to do. Stayed until 10:00. Did a little shopping & then went out to the farm. Pete was already there. Painted the North bedroom & kitchen floors. Pete cleaned out the toilet & hauled the manure away from the sides of the house. Home at 6:30. Did a little ironing, ate, cleaned  up & wrote in diary.

My comments: Don't think this house had been lived in for awhile, so total 'redo' was in order.  Lots of 'elbow grease' and 'sweat equity' invested.



Families are Forever!  ;-)
