Thursday, June 4, 1936

plesant all day but cool-
Made elderberry pie* & shell and two cup custards & stewed prunes-
Combed Mother's hair and washed her neck-
Mother good-
mowed the lawn on all four sides & only left a narrow strip-
Iliff called this eve-
Charles got groceries & told us Will Hall died this A.M. at 9 o'clock-

*Irene is obviously feeling better because she is baking & cooking! Check out this elderberry pie recipe & video from Urban Nature Man. It even tells you how to pick & clean the elderberries.

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