A bright sun shine, moderate weather. All pleased to see a fine day, and every one busy in clearing away the mountains of snow. It fell one foot deep. I did not venture out. Mrs Bloodgood, came for my lilac poplein, brought home Louis coat, with new sleeves. Simon, engaged untill ten oclock at night sawing, and carrying in wood. The children spent the afternoon in the parlour, Julie’s cold is quite troublesome to her, she looks to me for constant entertainment as a relief. I bound my “quilted skirt”, sitting steadily two hours, gave me a pain in my breast, and shoulder. Amused myself in the evening with Miss Sedgenicks letters.
