A bright day and just like spring. Will went to Knoll’s and got spreader and started to clean barn & hog-house. I mopped south-room and we went to Spencer in p.m. Tom Ernest, Louise Ernest & Aldena Woolhiser stopped and changed horses as one had astoria. Mamma is sitting up now and there are so many cases [of] flu around here. Mrs. O. Ernest & Havalin leave for Council Bluffs on morning train to make their home.

Bright but N.W. breeze and was dusty so I never finished washing but got meals and I am so tired and my feet hurt I can scarcely walk. Wm chored and got a load of cane and fed cattle south of river on account of weak ice. Ben came and he walked to store to mail letter to Kloke Investment Co., Omaha, and in p.m. he and Wm got a load of cow-chips in pasture. Late p.m. I finished rest of clothes and hung out to dry.

Bright day and not cold in shelter and Trees but sometimes some clouds. Men fed cattle and ground oats & Barley for Bulls & calves. Abbott came with his Tractor and Snow Plow and Billie went Horseback [to] get their Mail and some things at Whiting Store and Abbott went back Home when Billie got here and never came to House. Men ground Barley & Oats, was late p.m. when they finished so Will came in at near Dark for the night. I am sewing on every day dresses, played solitaire and Read. Will don’t want to play Canasta these evenings as He gets all in so to bed.
