75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 4, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 4, 1938
 

This entry is an irregular post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

From March 1 thru April 29, I posted every day, to cover the marriage and the early married life of Pete and Eileen (Kinnick) Smith, but decided to 'take a breather.'  Posts will be added, from time to time, as items of particular interest appear.

Resuming with Dec 1, 1938:


Here is the daily entry for Sunday, Dec 4:

 Up at 8:00. Pete chores. I put the roast on, made a chic. cake and did last nites dishes. Did separator, got dinner. Ate, did dishes, straightened up the house. Pete read awhile. Washed up. Did my bookkeeping. Snowing out. Chored, ate supper got ready for bed and laid on studio couch awhile. To bed at 10:00.

My comments: First actual snow fall, think. Had been very cold all the prior week.
I wonder what Dad was reading…  ;-)

Here is the income journal page she would have been working on, doing her "bookkeeping."

Her handwriting is so distinctive - but, just like her fathers! ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
