November 20, 1954 Entertaining a Bunch of Women, The New T.V. and Just Say No
"It looks like it will snow any minute. It has been nice but I guess it really is time for it to get cold and stay that way.
Wattersons have a new T.V. set and I can hardly keep Bob out of their house. He gobbles his supper so he can see the next show. I still don't want one.
Today is Charlotte's birthday. I have had so much extra stuff to do that I really forgot it. I'm ashamed to admit it.
The church bazaar was Wed. and Thurs. I made a chiffon cake and some candy for them. They asked me to work but I said, "No". I hated to not help but simply couldn't.
B was out several nights this week for meetings--gave a talk one night. We both went to a parents' meeting of the first graders and heard about their library period--what they do, etc. It was very interesting. Every day I learn a little more about how much I don't know where kids and schools are concerned.
Edna and I entertained a bunch of faculty women here last night. She made the dessert and I did the extra cleaning.
I have to take Thanksgiving cookies for Ann's room on Tuesday. Then I have to help entertain another bunch of women on Dec. 2. That's the end of my promises, I hope.
I guess I'd better wash the breakfast dishes. B is going to school and I just heard Bill ask him if he was going to leave without washing the dishes. He's the funniest kid you ever saw.
I'm going to try to do the fruitcake again this year. Haven't started it yet but hope to soon. Hope you are all fine."
Lots of love,
