I ironed yesterday a little and today finally got caught up. The first time the ironing basket has been empty since I took charge again. Mrs. McDowell came to see the baby.

    Thank you very much for doing this. It is very interesting to see how your grandmother lived. She was an amazing woman who makes me feel very lazy, all that sewing and cleaning.

    I will be coming back often for more updates.
