Nov. 15 – 1943
Dear Daddy –
No mail toady. The last rec’d was of Nov. 4 – The message “Greetings.” I rec’d no date on it but I presume it came a day or so after you sent it. I rec’d it one day last week.
It is grey Monday. I hung some white clothes out on the strength of sunshine visible then but now there seems to be nothing but grey clouds. There is a little wind so maybe they will dry. I hung colored clothes in the basement.
Today is Music Club and I am going to leave David at Funks. Mrs. Zell is going there to take care of Donnie & bobby. I was going to leave David at Zells but Arlene has charge of the program today & no help so Mrs. Z. is going to keep all the children at Funks. As soon as J. & M. come home from school I will have them bring David home. David is taking his morning nap at present. I bathed him and put him to bed about 10:30 and without a struggle he went to sleep.
[page 2] I think we have the furnace adjusted to this Ind. coal. It needed more air flow. I had been keeping the house at 68 but with me throat being so sensitive this fall I decided I would step the heat up to 72. The house feels much better and I feel warmer. I know that will take a little more coal but they should get more in. The strikes seem to be quieting down again. I suppose they figure this is the best time to strike and get what they are asking for. I do hope some settlement will be reached. I certainly have wished this winter we had an oil furnace but no use wishing for that now, but I think it’s worth considering later on.
We had a snow storm yesterday that lasted a few minutes – No evidence of it today. Mark is so anxious for snow & for the pond to freeze over. Last year the pond was frozen over long before Christmas – I am not wishing for such cold weather this year, but will take it if it comes.
It’s about time to get lunch ready – had to stop and bring the clothes in – raining – would have saved time and effort to hang them in basement at first – It’s now time for me to start getting ready to go to music meeting –
