July 3, 1947

pretty day.

Elizabeth here for dinner.

I cut the grass in the back yard.

Opal & Lillie worked on their fancy work.

All the roomers left today. Will be back Sun or Monday.

Original handwritten version of the diary entry for No. 5184, for today's month and day.
I love the concept of fancy work.

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.
