I agree! A walk would be much better. I’m not sure why people “took to their beds” when there were problems in the old days. It seems like they’d just brood.
That said, right after I wrote this I was really upset about something someone said. My husband said, “Maybe you should take that advice about going to bed instead of saying what you think.” We had a good laugh–and I’m glad I held my tongue.
I look forward to sharing my grandmother's diary with relatives and friends. Helena Muffly (Swartz) kept a diary from 1911-1914. She was 15 years old when she began this diary. I plan to post these entries one day at a time—exactly 100 years after she wrote them. I hope you enjoy this glimpse back to a slower paced time.
The header is a picture of the farm where my grandmother lived when she wrote this diary. It is located in Northumberland County in central Pennsyvlania about a mile outside of McEwenvsille. My father said that the buildings look similar to what they looked like when he was a child.
