March 30, 1934: Lady Baltimore Cake

1934 March 30 Friday

Sun shone bright but was chilly until p.m. the snow melted. I went to kitchen, churned or stirred the cream we separated last 2 days, baked a lady-Baltimore cake and tried some cream-puffs, they a fake so ate pudding, slept in p.m., read the mail and Sophie and I played solitaire this eve. I wiped dishes twice this week and can sand on my foot. Sophie got meals, made cottage cheese and all the other necessary work. Elmer gave stock hay from big-stack as usual and did the chores for Will got in from Pine-Ridge for Tom Sazama brought him here as he got to Bert Roundy’s at 1 a.m. with O. S. Ellis truck from Wood and Dell Furrey brought them down on horse-back, 1 cold and 7 head Geldings & Mares, he and Sazama staid for dinner and when they left Will slept all p.m., up for supper and again to bed.
