Saturday, January 30, 1926
Fair and warm

Instead of my usual Saturday cleaning I baked some whole wheat bread and pies then put in the rest of the morning sewing. Made Albert a waist and finished his pants. Then I bathed and went down town leaving the children with Gilbert who came home early. I got Dale some underwear and us all some stockings and me a pair of shoes. Got home at six and had supper to get and the button holes on Albert’s outfit to make. Would have gotten along ok if Marjorie hadn’t been wakeful. She fussed and cried and wouldn’t go to sleep till 1 o’ clock, so I had a trying time of it.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "Looks like I got my days and nights mixed up. When Mother made pies, it was almost always 2 or 3 at a time and not with frozen crusts from the grocery store."

I would guess she made her pie crusts with lard.)

  1. I remember when Marjorie had scarlet fever and we were all quarenteened. To keep me happy mother made me a pumpkin pie, which I promptly ate. So she made me another one. I think I existed those few days on pumpkin pies. As soon as I finished one she made another. I still love pumpkin pies.
