75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 2, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 2, 1939


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.


Here is the daily entry for Friday, June 2:

Sultry. Did usual work. Polly & LVene here at 8:30. Finished with the biggest jobs. Started raining at 11:30. I went over after Pete. Ate dinner, took him to work, did dishes, went in town. FInished ironing curtains. Got groceries, came home, hung most of curtains. Pete came with team at 7:00. He finished planting beans over on 80. Got supper, Pete milked, ate, talked till 10:00. Bathed & went to bed.

My comments:

Note that from yesterday's expense sheet, her groceries this day, June 2, were 26 cents.

Since we've already snooped, a bit, in the books, let's also look at the page before, for some of the expense we have read about earlier… Pop's shirt, for his birthday, was 1.00, paid by check. Another check was for 1.00, for 2 qt. paint. On the 25th, paid cash for 100# st. mash for the Egg a/c.
The last entry on the page included the haircut, groc, cleaning… 1.24 paid cash. Neat!
