Temp range: 63° – 90°
Warm, dry day. Still lots of haze & smoke from Yellowstone Park fire – been going on for weeks. Did laundry. Washed up eggs, hoses going. Everything dry. Guys swathing some feed. Fixed sliced ham (bone-in), very good. Rec’d letter from Helen. After lunch worked on pool about 2 hrs. Backwashed, swept, etc. Added water. Bill decided to have guys drill a little more sandy ground on sec. What drilled last week not up yet. I wrote Helen. Called to see if Jeannie is at Larned (they came in to work on well at runway). I started supper & took gift for Drew up to Jeannie at Ralph’s.
Temp Range: 66° – 87°
Still windy & humid. About 87° outside, but winds up to 50 mph. I didn’t go to sleep til 3:30. Woke up at 7:00. Grudgingly made bed, took bath. They took urn to cemetery before it was ready. Made coffee, made 5 jars of peonies & 4 – $4 geraniums plus what was in urns. Got back about 8:30. Jeannie & kids were up. Made scrambled eggs & bacon for Bill, Jeannie & me. Kids don’t eat much. Drew is sure a good baby. Ralph called. Mrs. Bryant called. Had 7 lbs asparagus for me. Girls decided not to help Linda. Girls put out flags at cemetery. I put on ham to bake. Cooked potatoes with jackets on. Ralph came at noon. Had lots of fresh asparagus, fried potatoes, baked ham, fruit salad & watermelon. Jeannie left in Ralph’s station wagon at 2:30. Kitty had kitten north of house & abandoned it.
