Debbie Cederlind came down Friday evening to her mother’s, Bonnie Phipps and stayed all night and went back home on Saturday.
Last Monday we had some snow before we got up, but most of it blew away. Kendra came by in the afternoon and picked up her carrot cake and a loaf of bread on her way back to college.
I got at least an inch of snow last Tuesday and I melted the snow that was in my rain gage and I had one-tenths of an inch of liquid.
Vernal called me and said he had just got one inch of snow in Springfield where he lives.
Kay came by Wednesday evening after work and picked up her eggs.
Thursday morning when I got up I thought my pipes were frozen, but James told me to take the cover off the little box that lets the water into the tank and put the heat lamp on it and it would thaw out the little needle that freezes up and I did and pretty soon the water started filling up in the tank and my water was running again by the time Mark got here and then he put some stuff in the cracks that was down there in the walls.
I thanked the Lord for getting it to run again and there wasn’t any pipes busted.
Friday I went by the nursing home and visited with Pauline and Roxie before I went on into town and stopped by Edna Linder and Ruby Smith’s. When I left there I went to Norman Duckworth’s and gave him a loaf of bread, one jar of apple butter and pear honey and a birthday card that the Mt. Tabor Church had signed on Sunday. You see Friday was Norman’s birthday.
Friday was also Monica Reemes’ birthday. She is my first child and I liked one month being 23 years old when I had her.
Jewell stopped by on her way home and picked up her eggs.
Tom and Donna Nichols stopped by Saturday evening and picked up Mae Cox’s eggs for her.
Well, here it is Sunday and it is cold out, but I went to church. There were only eight out to church. Some had that bad flu and some came back who were over it.
We still have sick folks out, so lets keep all our sick folks in our prayers.
My prayers and sympathy go out to all who have lost a loved one.
Lets keep our leaders and men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in our prayers.
