75 Years Ago Today
June 17, 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 Saturday, June 17:
I didn't get up 'till 8:00. Really hot & awfully windy. Betty, Polly & Jo came & had their hair set. They did the dishes. Folks came just as they left. Cleaned 2 bedrooms before dinner. Pete plowing beans on 80. Ate dinner, did dishes. Scrubbed kitchen floor & cleaned the rest of the house.
Mom & Dad worked in the garden awhile. Pete got through on the 80. Dad took me over after the car. Home. Chored early. Ate Sp. Rice. Did dishes. Pete shaved & we bathed & went in to town. Got a good parking space by Kitty's & Bertha's old place. Lyle sat with us awhile. Ed, Elmer, Orville, Erna, Lucille M., Ila Jean, Mrs Lund stopped & talked. Got groceries & came home about 1:00.
Cultivating beans when it was "really hot & awfully windy" reminds of experiences on the farm, in my early years… didn't mind leaving that… though, at the time, it was just what we did! ;-)
Don't remember Mom ever mentioning Spanish Rice, before. Did it look like this??
Families are Forever! ;-)
