1934 April 9th Monday
N.W. wind and hazy but it may be dust as wind was strong at times, but sun shone bright until towards eve some clouds but clear again at bed-time. Sophie got meals and washed a big-washing and all but colored clothes got dry. I mended Will’s trousers that he wore to Winner and he helped chore, shaved and went via Harry Furrey’s to Winner to attend a sale of stock at Sales Pavilion and home for supper. Elmer got 2 loads of hay in hills for stock and gave one to them and left one on rack and chored alone in eve as Will got in just as he was finishing. I also cooked Danish dish of Raisins, Currants, Prunes, Lemon & Tapioca and Sugar & Water. Mended Will’s trousers he wears for every-day and sewed a little on my black-dress, and slept in p.m.
