A colde snowy day. Has snowed nearly all day. We all set around the fire most of the day. I milked and churned and fed the chickens. Josie got dinner. She cooked some beans. The Edmons tried to have a dance to night. It is so bad I dont expect that they could get a crowd. Ben & Josie has gone down there. They walked. I feel uneasy about them and will until they come back.
Franklin has waked up and I will be glad when they get back.
10 30 oclock
I went to Marvins and Kate. Irvin come there. We all eat dinner there. Ben and Josie and the children staid at home all day. Carrie had custard at dinner and Josie had ice cream. We had some tonight at supper. I did enjoy it. Kate brought me a ball of yarn. I want to knit a pair of wristlets for Charles Harvey as soon as I get the kneedles to knit on.
8 30 oclock
I washed a little and got dinner.
Willie Mayhew come here to night. Him and Ben went to John Hutchersons to play cards. Snow is still on the ground and it looks to night like it might snow before day. I certainly do hope it wont. We have not got much wood at the wood pile. I cut out an apron to night and then I was too lazy to make it.
9 15 oclock
A good day but it is snowing to night. Ben and Tom and Edmons helped Ben cut a set of barn logs to day. They both eat dinner with Ben. We were glad to have them here to night. Ben has gone to Jim Powers to a dance. Josie was sick this morning but is feeling some better tonight.
I got most of the dinner. I sewed some this evening and then went to Marvins. Josie sewed on her quilt this evening. Lee Brumfield passed here and stopped a while. He was hauling a load of wood for the teachers. They are going to try and keep house at Kate Harveys. I am sorry for the girls.
