I got up about 6 o’clock this morning and by the time got my chores and house work done, got ready for church and walked over to Neill’s the last bell rang and so I did not go, but went with Fred out to his farm instead. We went down to Crystal Lake also, and picked up pebbles, getting back soon after 2 P.M. It was very hot just at that time. It showered about from 5 to 7, and may rain more tonight. I ate dinner at Neill’s and am going to spend the evening there. Kate expected to be with me this Sunday but failed for some reason. I hope she will get here in a few days now. I have caught no mice today, and heard some around.
