Colonial Times

Diary of

Preslie McGarrity




It was a dark,windy day I was pulling the butter churn up and down it was hard work.And my mom begin the day by washing up in the washbasin and getting dressed. My dad started to gather wood from the woods this is my dads first chore of the day.After your dad puts the wood in the fireplace , a fire is lit to warm the house. Then I gathered eggs from the chickens and my mom used the eggs to cook are lunch and after we cooked the eggs we tock are pan and we walked to the stream to cool it down.We have to cook for 100 people so that tock the holl day. And that's a day in a hard cold colonial life.
