Diary 1925

T.B. Barrett

Donnybrook. Povi Dover Ontario

From January 1st 1925 to November 1925

Thurs day January 1st, 1925

At the time of the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto last November I {unsure of word}& Jon as so journed for a few days in the city ostensibly to have a look at the fat cattle & high {unsure of two words} hunters, but no doubt as far as frank we are concerned {unsure of word} was a fairer attraction than {unsure of two words} Fair. What {unsure of four words} was the point in this connection in that he brought home this hook that I was want to keep diurnal records in prior to the war, but which up till now I have been unable to get. The possession of it {unsure of word} to resume my old practice of diary writing and so I make a start with the New Year. We are still in the grip of a very cold {unsure of word} which has lasted with scarcely a break now for about two weeks. The wind to-day was in the east but it has been fairly sunny. I have done very little all day but the chores, went {unsure of word} to Willie {unsure of word} this morning to pay him back for the sink we got from him last fall, and {unsure of word} after noon went over to the {unsure of word} for awhile to find some fuel but didn’t have much luck. I started milking May to-day so {unsure of two words} came out {unsure of word} & took the calf

Friday January 2nd

We contemplated going to town to-day which would have necessitated my {unsure of word} over home and gathering {unsure of word} or the teams. {Unsure of word} the weather {unsure of four words} was snowing hard when we got up that morning and had {unsure of word} hard {unsure of word} the night keeping it up till this after noon. It has {unsure of word} getting tea milder all day and I think almost thawing tonight.

stick. {Unsure of word} I had quick {unsure of word} getting it. as it was green and heavy. I fell down with it once and quit {unsure of word} with snow getting {unsure of word} from under it. They {unsure of two words} I got my word home and unloaded and the {unsure of two words} it was nearly five so I {unsure of word} turned to

lethal slumber that have all the qualifications of the greener months besides a few peculiar to them selves to implant in a fellow that very happy sensation. the {illegible} joy of being alive. Just such a day was this especially the fore noon of it. I was in an excellent position to enjoy it as I walked from here over home to meet Frank with my load of coal. There was not a breath of wind and the sun was not bright which would have been dazzling in that night's fresh snow, but {differed?} a {genius?} caught through the lightest of cloud high floating wealth of smoke. The northern part of the sky was blue, but not the steel blue of Winter but the soft hazy appearance of Late Autumn while the air might have been that of May except for a certain energizing zest to it not comparable to the chill of Spring nor its longious warmth which has a {illegible} lethargy. The roads are excillint trim for sleighing and apparently too deep for the pesky cars to spoil them. No mud of Spring. no bugs of Summer, no {illegible} of work as with fall. if all Winter weather was like this, tourist resorts in the South would have to go out of business, but what makes this weather truly appreciated is that it is a very small nugget in a large rock of quartz and the


realization that for all we know an 80 mile{illegible} may be the programme for tomorrow. When I got to the tavern I found Frank had gone down for the coal and Dad was preparing the scene for the execution of his pigs He was very distressed that I had walked over as he said Frank would go right out the side road with the coal and I would have to walk back. Frank however had forgotten to take a scoop shovel and remembering that I didn't have one came back by the farm with the coal so I rode out with him. He took the train right back so as to be on time to help with the pig killing this afternoon. Pickford and {name?} are going to help. I spent the afternoon lining my chicken house with tar paper and at May’s suggestion shifting the roasts so that they are not in such a direct draft from the windows. {Ina?} was here washing today and she walked home with Mabel who came over for a while after school.

Wednes day January 7th Another very mild day and so nice that May: wanted to go to town. I was anxious to finish fixing my Chicken pen but as she was afraid we might not get another nice day this week. I told her that if she would go over and

borrow the haup cutter and Houi {illegible}would go right after dinner.
