A productive day was held on Thursday, or at least it felt that way. Also our prints came for the photo show in July, so that was pretty exciting, I picked those up after work. Planned on going for a walk after supper but got rained out, so settled for an hour of Coronation Street instead. Glad to have Corrie back for a full hour.
From my Grandmother's journals:
14 June 1977 - Got off to work late. Call by CB for Mother to come to stay with Bob. [They had no telephone in those days in the country]. Very sore this morning. Sat in chair all day. Some better this evening. Mother went home before supper. Gertrude over, played 5 games [cribbage] 3 games for me. [My Grandmother taught me to play crib when I was just a little girl, most nights after supper during daylight hours we would have a few games, and if I won it was because I played well] Tired after not much sleep last night. Birds really singing tonight. Saw a doe and fawn our side Briar Hill Road. Saw a deer this morning.
15 June 1978 - To work as usual. Lovely day but wind, cold really high winds.30 miles/hour. Catherine, Hilda, Barb and I to tea at the new tea cup. Enjoyed it. Home 15 past 6 o'clock. Tired as I was up 20 past 4 o'clock this morning. [perhaps this is where my weird hours come from] Bob very tired tonight. Saw a deer our side of Salmon Creek on way back from taking Judy. E & H Nickerson at the little white camp.
16 June 1978 - Friday again. Days fly. To work as usual. Home 5:15. Bob picked me up at Barbs. Great to have Judy on weekends. Beautiful today also this evening. Barb and Judy over for a few minutes. They were to town tonight. Everyone tired being end of week. No kids this weekend. Kim working.
.Pointed Blue Eyed Grass, growing wild along the ditch. I have a great Wildflower book that my brother Sid gave me in 1979 for Christmas. The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers.
I can't resist the shadows from the trees across the dirt road. I love the way the light plays through the trees.
Since I've got a lot of work to do, probably wise I did get up early. Time to get it started!
Enjoy your day!
