75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 1, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 1, 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 Friday, April 1:


3 eggs

Up at 7:00. Got breakfast, ate rather hurriedly. Pete went up to Smith's to butcher. Did dishes and separator. Cleaned up the house, made an apple pie & cherry cake. Embroidered. We've gone together one year and a half now. 2 very important anniversaries. Pete came home about 6:00. Brought a rag rug from Loretta Brannan and a table cloth from the Smiths. The table cloth is lovely. Pete kidding me and I got a little put out about it but it didn't take very long to make up. Ate before chores. Did dishes & separator, took a bath & went to bed.

My comments: Love her emphasis on the "2" anniversaries! Lots of stuff going on here… interesting that she wrote it all out.

But, have to focus, today, on the butchering... got the locker in town, yesterday. They don't say whether beef or pork, but I think most likely beef, and maybe both. Mom and Dad always have beef and pork in the freezer - in town in the locker, or later, in the freezer at home, when I was growing up!
