Wednesday, September 8, 1926

Gilbert did some work here in the morning and then went to work at noon. I tried all day to get my ironing done but finally gave up. I have no pep these days. This evening I began to take the beads off of a dress of Mama’s she gave me. It is beautiful material and black is so stylish I could make a good dress if I ever get the beads off, but there are so many.

(They certainly tried to reuse and recycle in the 20's. Today, who would try to reuse material from one dress to make a new dress? I assume Grandma's mother still wore dresses that were fairly long and full, so there would be plenty of material there.)
