A clear cold day. Ben went to Jim Powers. He walked. Got Home before night. He got a ride part the way home. Henry went to a pond and skated a while. Jim stayed at home most of the day and kept up the fire. Nellie and I got dinner. The little children had to stay in the house and fuss around. I think now I will be so glad when the children can get out of doors.
