75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 5, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 5, 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 Monday, June 5:

Did usual work. Made a spice cake. Pete discing & planting beans. Waxed bedroom & painted wash stand. Painting kitchen table when Pete came in. Dick kicked him. In to Doctor. Up home an hour. Pete laid down. Wilson came. Found John Miller & got a supporter. Bud M. & Coon Cavanaugh milked & separated. Coon tight. Ate & Pete bathed. Went to bed but I didn't sleep much.

My comments:

Wow! OUCH! I've been kicked by a cow, but never by a work horse, of course!! Hazard of farming with the horses, I guess. Just about done with planting, using the team… but, still hurt, a lot!

Let's be positive and think about the delicious spice cake, instead! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. We love spice cake with what we call "caramel frosting"! Recipe was handed down from my grandma. It looks identical to this!
