A bright nice day and warm for was chilly yesterday. Will had chores and I did up work and baked a pumpkin pie but had a headache so napped while Will hauled alfalfa and it got a little better, so I went along to town. Will took Louise out, and I looked for a nurse, none in town, to care for Papa.

Bright, cool day. Will chored and he and Ray put [up] hay in p.m. and quit early as he had to get in stock. Wm has the Flu but walked to barn in p.m. but no stay. I got meals and rested in p.m. for I am still all in.
1934 Jan. 14th Thursday.
Sun shone, rained a little last night but day was real March weather, warm and damp. Elsie and I got meals and she washed curtains and ironed them to-day and hung in south room upstairs. I mended Will’s nightshirt, Fine-combed my hair, took a bath, put clean bedding on Will’s and my bed, that is sheets and pillow slips, laid down in p.m. for my cough still hangs on. Will went to Valentine to get his tooth fixed and came home before chore time for he fed the chickens. Henry and Wm Van Epps chored and went to Wagner house, put most of wall-board on ceiling.
