My grandmother, Helena Muffly, kept a diary from 1911-1914 when she was a teen living on a farm in central Pennsylvania. The original purpose of this blog was to post Grandma’s diary entries, as well as background and contextual information, a hundred year’s to the day after she wrote them.
Now that all of the diary entries have been posted, the purpose this blog has shifted. It now focuses on food, healthy living, and more from a hundred years ago; but diary posts are still available. You may enjoy reading (or rereading) some of those posts.
I continue to use a photo of the farm where Grandma lived when she kept the diary for the header of this blog because it symbolizes simpler times to me.
