100_Page 98Saturday. 7th. January. 1843.

A thick mist; and general thaw. sometimes the sun gleams out; but it shines only to deceive.

I wanted to walk out to.day, am tired of staying at home. My house keeping cares very slight at present, regularity makes all things go on strait. My husband the mirror of good faith, keeping strictly all his promises, and engagements. I do not love sewing as well as I used to do, but pass many house reading magazines, and other productions. My time, is not profitably employed, as I do not settle my mind to one pursuit, but sip a little from all.
