I did some teaming with Jimmie this forenoon, drawing up some water from the creek and getting out some wood. Fred Neill was here plowing the greater share of the day. He plowed up the front yard for me, so I can level it off now, and fix a decent yard. I dug some roots for Kate; her ear is troubling her again today. I did considerable spading and grubbing around trees where Fred plowed. Went up town tonight for the mail and ground that my buckboard had arrived. It has been cool and threatening rain all day, it has rained a little tonight.
