A good day. Ben planted some tulips and sweet peeas. Jim walked about in the mud. Nellie went to George Blairs and spent today. I think she enjoyed the day. Henry went to Straightstone to Sunday school. Lawson Emerson come with Henry. They went some where this evening. I got what dinner was got and churned. This has been one lonesome Sunday. Nellie said there was a crowd at Blairs. I wish I could go to Kates and Mollies and to see them all but I can't. The roads is so bad and I am not well.
