75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 19, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 19, 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 Wednesday, July 19:

Got up and fed baby, went back to bed & didn't get up until 7:30. Ate, Pete picked a pail of beans. Bathed baby & fed him & then fixed 9 quarts of beans. Got dinner. Fed baby, ate, & then took Pete threshing at Anderson's. Up & talked to Polly a minute. Home, did dishes, & canned 5 quarts of tomatoes. Polly came down a minute. Fed baby. Late with chores. Really tired. Ate late, I slept while Pete bathed. Fed the baby & went to bed. Rained a lot.

My comments:

Quite a day. Much canning going on… but, "fed the baby" a lot, as well!! ;-)

How about those tomatoes, today! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
