“clear, nice day – Jones & Holmes came home with us – Jimmy & Ta came out”
My mom was not Creator of days (M’s challenge for today) but she was the one who “created” this prized time for me today She was the Journal Keeper. She kept the notes so they could remember when she planted the trees and when Daddy fertilized the “corn ground” and that necessary kind of information. She had no idea that I would be enjoyed it 51 years later. Thanks, Mom, for the memories.
I take a look to see how the week went.
Monday. “nice day – Mom and I went to Karens – I mailed my pictures – Brot Teral home with us – Pete leveled and fertalized corn ground – second pigs came”
Tuesday. “sun shiney – I washed & ironed – Pete irrigated hay”
Wednesday. “nice day – I put out my peach trees got from Nadine”
Thursday. “warm day – We papered Deltas bedrooms – Tom & Karen came after Teral Lin – We went to Judy’s class party”
Friday. “nice day – set out trees”
Saturday. “lovely day – Pete fertalized corn ground – I cleaned house, watered lawn, painted pictures”
Sunday. “such a pretty day – March went out with high wind in the night”
Notes from me: “Mom” on Monday was her mom, my grandmother “Little Gran.”
It goes without saying that Mom and Daddy went to church Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday night, she did not mention that, just as she did not mention eating breakfast. That was just what they did.
Life was lovely – day after day
Friends and family came to play
Lots of work – irrigating hay
Pigs were born, fertilized corn
Never a reason to feel forlorn
Mom would have it no other way!
