A bad day. Ice on the ground and trees. It has thawed some today. Jim & Ben worked on tobacco all day. Ben milked for me this morning. Josie got dinner and supper. She baked a cake and cooked beans. I ironed some and mended some and set by the fire.

Heard this morning that Mrs Marsali fell on the ice and hurt her arm badly. I am afraid to go on ice much. I went to the spring and hen house and watered the calf to day. Did not fall.

Mr Owens baby is very sick. The dr went to see him tonight. I am sorry for any one to be sick any time and this is such bad weather. An oil tank come in here today. The roads is so bad that no one is going much.

A cloudy morning but no rain. I am haveing an easy time. My hip hurts me some yet I worked two button holes and hemed two quilts and gathered some peas today. Earl & Lonnie Bennett plowed some but they need rain bad. They watered their plant beds to night.

Alma went visiting this evening. Lizzie attends to the cows and chickens. She has five little turkeys. They are getting on fine.

I certainly do want to know how they are at home. Hope I will hear soon.
