Friday, April 24, 1925

Friday, April 24, 1925
Hot

Decided to make my curtains first so as to be sure they were up before Mable came, but worked all day on them and didn’t get them done either. Never had any sewing seemed so tedious before. Hemming the ruffles seemed an endless job. Got them almost done and went to the hair dressers after supper for a marcel.

(More sewing, and what is a marcel? I looked it up. It is a hairstyle with deep, regular waves made by a heated curling iron. Sounds quite typical of hairstyles I've seen pictured from the "roaring 20's". I wonder if she has a special event to attend, that she'd go to that extent to have her hair fixed up?

FYI, the record high for April 24th was set in 1925. It was 90 degrees.)

  2. Probably not. Don't be fooled by a warm stretch of weather.
