Denver Domesticity

Tuesday, Apr 3, 1945

It’s been a very domestic couple of days both indoors and out. Daddy has already planted out the red beans around the edges of the yard. Mommy writes, “They’ll grow into a nice privacy screen. He loosened the earth around the iris, honeysuckle and bridalwreath bush which were planted here about 30 years ago and come out by themselves every year. Then he burned all the old leaves and spread the cinders around for fertilizer. I have finally started on the second slipcover and it took me two hours to cut and pin it. If I have the time, I will sew it tonight, but that is the smallest part of it even though I have to do it by hand. The pinning nearly drove me nuts because I am using old scraps of material I found in the cellar.”
