"We have been to a dinner but got home earlier than usual. Tuesday night we went to the first concert of the year at school. It was the London Symphony and the music was beautiful. There was a reception for them afterwards but there were so many people there we didn't stay long. I don't care much about meeting entertainers anyway.
I've been sewing this week and haven't done much else. I finished a jacket dress just in time for the change in weather. It is real cool and fall-like tonight. The furnace came on by itself.
Our friends have been bringing us tomatoes so I used some which Beulah gave me and made some preserves this morning. I made only a half batch and ended up with three glasses. It was hardly worth the time but I didn't want to use up too many tomatoes or too much sugar either.
We got home about 8:00 Sunday evening but never stopped to eat any lunch. After eating the snack with you we just weren't hungry at noon so we waited until we got to Springfield and ate supper there.
I haven't even looked for the thread yet but will try to soon. I just got to thinking about my quilting lady and called her. She hasn't been quilting but said she hadn't forgotten me and would call me someday. I gathered everything together for a quilt & have it ready to take when she does call. I still have four tops to get quilted and may attempt one with the hoops if she doesn't start quilting again.
This isn't much letter but there isn't much to write. Hope you are still resting lots so your back will get better. We enjoyed being home and hope we can come again before too long."
NOTE: Dad loved classical music and among his favorite performances was that of the London Symphony. During my high school years I can clearly recall hearing his albums at full volume on the stereo, with him humming along. Below, his favorite.
