I expected I might have to work for Fred today but he got Mr. Olsen, so I did not have to go. I began shingling the barn. I am rather slow at it however. Kate had such a bad toothache, that we drove up to the dentists, so is now is town, and had it pulled this afternoon. We got the mail also. Kate got a letter from home. It has been an awful hot day, but a good breeze has blown so we could stand it. It looked so much like rain tonight that I tired to fix things so some water could go into the cistern, if it did rain, but I hear I have not go it in good shape. I am pretty tired tonight.
