18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Thursday, July 10, 1913: Ditto
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
The previous day Grandma wrote, “Not so very much doing today,” so I guess that a hundred years ago today was another quiet day.
Sometimes I wonder where Grandma was sitting when she wrote these diary entries. Was she at the kitchen table? . . . sitting in a chair in the living room? . . . .sprawled on her bed?
And, what was the room like? The windows were probably open and the curtains may have been fluttering in the breeze. Were the curtains stylish—and similar to ones shown in 1913 issues of Ladies Home Journal; or were they old and a little tattered?
