Sep 16 Tues. Very warm to-day. I drove Jim to work & then went shopping. Jim came home at noon to tell me he was going to play golf. We had a fight over the usual thing. Bea came for supper & we went for walk after supper.
Sep 17 Wed. Jim trying to be very nice to me. Brought me flowers to-night, the usual make-up bribe. I told him last time I wanted music instead of flowers, but, as usual, he forgot. Everything fine now. I hate being mad at him.
Sep 18 Thurs. To-night we went for a walk & brought in the cows. We certainly are having beautiful warm sunny weather for September. I hope it lasts.
Sep 19 Fri. As Jim was playing golf & poker & we had been invited to Norma’s, Owen came & got me & I went in. We played bridge etc. & had a lot of fun. Had intended going to the show but couldn’t get the car started.
Sep 20 Sat. As the battery in the car was run down, Jim & I drove to Fort Erie & back. Then went to the library & did our shopping at the Falls. The first bit of unnecessary gas we have used.
Sep 21 Sun. Mother & Dad, Nana & Nora came to see us to-day. I was sick this morning so Jim got up & tidied up & it was well done. Beautiful day. We took them to the Glen & the Falls. They left about 5.
Sep 22 Mon. They brought us word yesterday that Glen has volunteered for overseas service & expects to leave anytime without leave. Poor Mrs. Milne. (Bernice is referring to Glen, Jim’s younger brother. The reference to Mrs. Milne is regarding having two of her three sons, Jack and Glen both overseas.)
Sep 23 Tues. Washed & then picked grapes all day with Mrs. Johnson. Earned $3.00. Jim & I went into the show after. Saw “They Met in Bombay” -very good. Bowled afterwards.
Sep 24 Wed. Tried my hand to-day at making grape juice & jam. the grape juice tastes pretty good but the jam is pretty tough.
Sep 25 Thurs. Terrific wind storm here to-day. Quite a few trees blown down on the farm. Jim & I spent the evening inside -knitting & playing solitaire.
Sep 26 Fri. Got a letter from Nora to-day. Glen has left for Halifax. Jim played golf to-night. He brought home a letter from Jack who is apparently much better. He says his Aunt & Uncle in Scotland gave him money for us for a wedding present.
Sep 27 Sat. Made my first tarts to-day. (Butter) Jim & I went shopping & dropped into Liscombes’ to see if the were coming out to-morrow. While buying fruit met an SPS man & he invited us to his place for to-morrow night.
Sep 28 Sun. We spent a very lazy day. Outside of following a fire reel in a wild goose-chase and Jim fixing the brakes, we spent our anniversary in bed. (4 times). After supper we went to see Ted & Mildred. They are very nice. She is going to have a baby in 3 weeks.
Sep 29 Mon. I got a letter from George to-day. He is a Pilot Officer. He says England isn’t as bad as he expected & also England is the only place in the world to live. Did pears & made plum jam. Helped Jim fix the breaks (sic) at night. Nearly froze holding a candle for him.
