Tuesday, September 7, 1926
Clear and warm

Mama called up that Uncle Jim is sick in bed there so they could not come out but she wanted them to see the children, so I had to take them over. However I took time to make up my juice into jelly as this was a clear day for it and the paper said cloudy again tomorrow. I got a late start and was late getting home for supper but Gilbert is so good natured, he never says a word. He did not go to work today and coughs all the time. Poor boy, I wish I could help him but I can’t so I was glad to be where I couldn’t hear him.

(Aunt Marjorie commented, "Mother always accomplished more than any other person I ever knew". Grandma was certainly a busy person washing, mending, sewing, cooking and cleaning for her family.)

    Sounds like Grandma never wasted a minute.

  2. She never wasted a minute, but also she didn't have the distractions we have - TV, cell-phones, etc. Also, if you own a car there is more incentive to run 'little errands' that could be consolidated in a timely fashion. Let's face it, we're easily distracted these days
