"Tired As Hell" Helen's Diary Again

April 21, 1934
Sat.


Cleaned aquarium. Worked on pool. Sprayed trees, washed hair, made 4 doz. cakes and decorated them.
Tired as hell.


Here is a photo of cleaning the pool:

The caption says "Spring '34" so it may have been this day. Bess and Helen finished the pool in 1933. Here it is in progress:






Some day we will dig it back out.

I was wondering about that too, I'll read ahead in the diary and see if there was a reason for so many. I think maybe they were cupcakes?
