Pretty day.

We ironed. Cut the back yard. I washed off some window screens. Mr. Cole here. Mr. & Mrs. Bourne rented their rooms. Opal painted the chairs in the back yard.

About my little diary project

The goal is to post entries from the diaries and journals of my ancestors, willing friends and family, myself, and found public sources like a diary my godmother discovered in a Kentucky resale shop. I want to organize them by writer, date, and where possible, geographic location. The reason: I want to honor and create a shared, minimally curated source of daily accounts of life from ordinary people. If you’d like to participate, contact me for guidelines.
