"I don't know where this week has gone. I've done a lot this week but can't see much to show for it and still have a bushel of ironing that needs doing.
We have had some beautiful spring days with a little snow thrown in but the grass is green & plants are coming up everywhere.
One of the stores had a sale of designer fabrics (cottons) this week and I got five pieces for Ann's dresses. I could have bought all the pieces they were so pretty but they were 79¢ and 89¢ a yard & it counts up so fast. She needs dresses but I don't know when I can get to sewing on them. She has to put dresses or skirts on every evening while she's at camp. I want to get my suit done or it will be too hot to wear the way spring is starting. It has been too hot for a suit today but is raining now so it may be cold tomorrow.
The book review for "As You Like It" Club this week was The Inheritors and real interesting. It was the story of the big money families & how they got their money & used it. The Carnegie family seemed to be the only respected one in the whole book of Hearsts, Rockefellers & all the familiar ones.
I hope Marjorie does go on to the Orient. She's already a good part of the way. Did she mean Hong Kong and Japan, too?
We've been having high winds lately & the firemen must be about run down. There were 12 runs to grass fires last Saturday. I don't know what people are thinking of when they start them on a windy day. I guess these warm days make people want to clean up their yards.
We haven't heard from B's mother this week but suppose she is still in Kansas City. Granny was 100 years old last Monday & they had a party for her on Sunday. We had a letter from Uncle John but of course, we couldn't go. We sent some flowers for there isn't much you can send her.
I got out some of last year's clothes last night but almost all of them need something done to them. It wouldn't take long to fix them if I could just get at it.
It's about time to take Ann for a piano lesson & I have to get supper going first. I have scalloped potatoes in the oven and I expect they need stirring a little.
Hope you both are fine."
Lots of love,
