A good morning. Rain this evening. Ben & Jim helped Marvin get up some hay then Marvins folks helped thin corn until they finished.

Josie got dinner. I picked a few black berries. I caned a half gallon & had all they would eat for dinner and supper. I sowed some on a quilt this evening. I slept a long nap after dinner. Something I dont often do.

Well we are all glad of the good rain that come this evening.

John has come to night. I am glad.
