Morning began like other days but the afternoon taxes the strength and nerves of a Person by being Sultry. Pleasant and cool, calm breezes. Flowers and growing things are refreshed by late Rain and look pretty and bright this morn. Scripture reading Phil 4:4 + 10 John 14:27
I did a little labor among the flowers & vines, they are certainly doing well, growing spreading over the Porches making a Dense shade, also over the Windows. This is One Year that the Entire Yard has been covered with pretty flowers. Ina Brown and Mary have decided not to go to California it was hard for Ina to give up the pleasure trip as she had worked hard, denied herself many things thinking she woud take her vacation with her Mother and Dad. And Mary was anxious to see Mildred and her boys. As usual on Saturday night Mary took Frank and I to Clinton, he to spend weekend down there. Dad & Frank were at Gip to see about a cutting of Alfalfa Hay.
It was serendipity
to have Mittie's Journal to read and share in 2008. The calendar days of 1941 are the same as 2008. Richard received the Journal from his mother, Fannie, and gave the Journal to his cousin Betty in spring 2008. This great-granddaughter first had it in hand in July 2008. For a few weeks it was transcribed to email for family. Mittie's Journal blog began October 12, the anniversary of the day Mittie and Rufus landed at Gip, Oklahoma 1892 in open prairie. Check out that Journal entry. It is a blessing to share this Journal with others. To stay in the matching year the remaining Journal days appear in the Journal Archive as they are posted. Thanks for stopping by.
