Saturday, May 9, 1936

plesant all day
Leroy Bower & Howard Sim over to harrow the little field below the road-
Leroy was some joker to-day-
Harry was the goat
Leroy and I were supposed to go to the Syracuse Fair???
I washed kitchen windows and usual Saturday work-
I mowed the north side of lawn and part of south side-
Mother good-

(I apologize for my late post. I was out of town & I neglected to bring Irene's diary with me. I need to get a few days ahead!)


  1. i really enjoy the ordinariness of your vintage diary , the net sometimes makes me think we should all be dynamic crafters and homemakers but really life hasnt changed much for most women, its still chores and the odd trip into town making up the days

    1. In many respects yes, I think that is true. The mundane makes up much of life, & should be embraced just like the fantastic, & the heart-breaking.


Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
