Clear & warm – springlike

Marjorie is getting as fat and pink cheeked as she can be. But last night about midnight she had a crying spell that seemed to bespeak genuine misery someway. She cried so hard! Finally got to sleep after one and I let her sleep this morning as long as she wanted to 11:30, thinking her stomach needed the rest. However it made her bath late, etc. and I didn’t get as much done today as yesterday as I had quite a bit of mending to do. Bess came out for supper – seemed in good spirits which is unusual for her as she usually has something to howl about. She plays with the boys and they are always hilarious when she comes out.

(This could be any 'stay at home' mother's post for today, even 80 years later.

If you haven't looked at the pictures in a while, here is a link to Aunt Bess's picture. This is probably when she was in her early 20's, she'd be closer to 40 at this time?

I see that it has been awhile since I posted any family pictures. I'll have to look for some more soon to post.)

    If I didn't know that Aunt Marjorie grew up just fine, I would be really worried about her right now. Wonder what was wrong? Maybe she had an ear infection or something.

  3. I so enjoy reading this blog. Today is my own Grammy's birthday. She died in 1969, and I think she was 97. Amazing.
