75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 11, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 11, 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 Sunday, June 11:

Up at 7:00. Took Pete over on 80 to plow. In town & picked strawberries & peas. Up home a minute. Pete & I here alone to dinner. Pete plowed & finished field in pm. Didn't get home till 6:30. I made 5 glasses strawberry jam. Worked on d. room curtains. Ate supper & went in town & sat on the street. Talked to LVene & Verle & Ger & Everett a minutes. Home to bed at 11:00.

My comments:

I can see Dad wanted to get that field plowed… having gotten behind when he was hurt. No church, today… though, might have been Annual Conference, and not service???

Like to have some of that jam! Here are some strawberries just picked… you can make the jam! 



Families are Forever!  ;-)
