A warm day. Snow and ice melted very fast. Ben went to Renan and to see Charles. Kate Harvey come a little while. The weather is so bad that I have to stay in most of the time. Ben made the fire in the stove this morning. I got breakfast. Josie got dinner. She had a bowl of soup and chicken. Baked tea cakes. We all did enjoy it so much. I washed dishes after dinner. Josie fed the calves and chickens. We had tea cakes and cocoa for supper.
