75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 31, 1938

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 31, 1938
(New Year's Eve Day)

This entry is a 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.'  Resumed with Dec 1, 1938...

Here is the daily entry for Saturday, Dec 31:

 Up at 8:30. Pete up home to dinner & sawing wood. I made 3 loaves white bread. Scrubbed kitchen & dining room. To town at 6:00. Order came. 3 sheets music & a pastry server. Shoes didn't come. Julia wanted us to come to a party at her house but we were too tired. Listened to good orchestras and went to bed.

POSTSRIPT (In black space on page): Wonder what we'll know next year at its' close

This has been the best year of my life.

My comments: NICE! Well - she'll have a really nice six month old baby in the family at the end of 1939! ;-)

This was a new one - nice! - "Listened to good orchestras…"

"sawed wood" - life of a farmer goes on, continuously!

"I made 3 loaves white bread." Look what I found:

Suppose hers looked like these?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
