Snow from S.E. and cold in front room, changed to N.W. Men fed cattle and not much else. I got eats and have Diarrhea, thought caused from too much meat but I guess just to be. Men put Grinder out by North Porch. No see Betty on account [of] snow. I tried to sew but not much done, played solitaire some.
