Happy New Year!

This day is about firsts, so here is the first day of 1941:

Wednesday, January 1st, 1941

Woke at 10 and was late for high mass again.  Balanced my book at noon and then settled down for a nap.  Jake came and joined me. Edmund stepped in for a while and then we dozed off till supper.  Walked over to Jake’s house and Nellie and Caz, Jake and I spent a restful evening- I fell asleep again.  Woke up for a late lunch and was walked home and so to bed.

Was it everything you imagined?  No, it wasn’t, was it?  It was a simple day and, well, a girl needs her rest.

Starting off the new year is also about growth.

Thursday, January 2nd, 1941

Felt more like living today than yesterday.  Sleep means a lot to one. I read the paper at supper time and read that Walter Zachowski is intending to marry.  I worshiped him when I was a child, but his marriage doesn’t break my heart. Took a walk to the library and it started snowing. 

She is moving on!

There is also nothing like snow to make it all seem fresh.  Like you get a clean start.
