1934, January 11, Thursday

A bright, nice day, the thermometer was above 32 all p.m. I mostly watched Maggie fix the furniture in our room in suitable places so I could slide my chair around and move to an indoor-toilet that Maggie put up at chimney, also to get around bed and to all the things in our room. Will brought in 12 nice quilts from the Red Cross, Todd Co. Chapter that C. M. Wheeler left at the store for Will to distribute, so Maggie packed them on cot in our room. In late p.m., I sewed a little, fixed Will’s collar on work-shirt, made a blue Sateen curtain for a partition across toilet and 3 holders for kettles in kitchen, also played solitaire and made out an order to Montgomery Ward & Co. Maggie also got meals and baked apple pies. Fritz and Will fixed the hay-rack, so in p.m. Fritz went to Nickereen (sp?) Land and got a big load of hay with Jack & Snip, Ben’s and our mules as an extra team. Will & Ben, who came this a.m., went to Jim Dowd’s and Claude Allen’s to try to sell Ben’s corn-fodder and Dowd not home, but Allen will look at fodder Sat. Ben got returns for the mink hide he shipped. It was $3.50, good price.
