1934 April 11th Wednesday
Another Northwest dust-storm and a real one after dinner, couldn’t see the sun, and continued blowing at bed-time. I went to kitchen after I sewed on my dress for awhile and made butter and corn-bread, slept in p.m. and sewed some more on my black-dress and Will, Elmer and I played pitch after supper. Elmer gave the stock hay on Rack and Will chored and in p.m. they fixed spring on Elmer’s Car and worked at it in the barn and visited with Ben Clausen and LeRoy Koepp. Koepp was on way to John Sundquist’s to get Barley but Ben told him there was none. Lemoyne, Leo and Thomas Whiting here for dinner, they came in Ed’s trailer to get Ed’s block & tackle and meat-saw and Thomas brought back Brownie and rode back to store with Lemoyne & Leo. Sophie got meals, baked bread and ironed clothes.
