Cold, cheerless weather, enough so to give anybody the blues. Hardie couldn’t stand it any longer, so he fixed up and rode Fannie to Mrs. Hill’s after breakfast. – – Patsy’s spinning today. I undertook to cook three meals. Think I improve a little, but I don’t find any time to work. – – Nan’s trying to do some on Liv’s shirts. Jim’s sick today.
