Tue. Aug. 1. 1950./ page. 2637./ 34.y.p. -1.-H- eggs today./ We got up early washed & dressed    Elbert cut some flowers & I put a voilet plant in a carton & cramed news papers around it, to take to the Moore Sisters    they seemed to like the flowers & plant,    I told Elbert I was going to take them 2. doz. eggs & he did both me & them a raw deal, by putting in 6 half sized eggs,    he had sorted out as to small to sell to his customers & I charged them 55 cents per. doz.    I can’t understand why he does me such tricks,    I can’t help feeling hurt & he gets so angry when I ask him about it    I discovered the 6 eggs were gone off the table & ask what he did with them & he hesatated & then said he put them in Moore cartons    Oh God, help him to learn to Know Thee & do Thy will. in Jesus Holy Name I ask, Amen.    Why my own brothers, sisters, father, Nephews & neices want to do such dasterly tricks on me is more than I can explain,    but I know Thou art able to turn them about face & I’m trusting & believing  Thou Wilt.   I will give Thee all the Praise & Glory for ever & ever. Amen.    Been a hot day  cool breeze.    Bill & Georgie & Georgia Mae packed there suit cases & put them & there hangers for suits & dresses in the car & left just before noon yesterday    & a big covered truck was there after dark a few nights ago,    We are wondering, if they have sold the place or gone for a good time.     Georgia Mae finished High school this yr. & Elbert saw 1 white cow & 4 or 5 calves in Snyders barn yard this. a-m,     It’s a queer World & I thank God the Son & Holy Ghost there are & ever will be. 

Wed. Aug. 2. 1950./ 37.y.p.-1-H-eggs today./ Well, I haven’t done much today,    went out to the garden to see if I could find any plants from the seeds I put in     only found a very few.    I haven’t felt so good from stooping over out there    & I should have done out the washing today    I couldn’t see well enough to try to sew & I’m badly in need of a couple more dresses & a dress for good,    I’ll have to buy one if I don’t get one made before much longer,    if only I had some one to help me just a little.    No mail today & it’s been a nice day   cooler breeze & partly cloudy,    I thank & Praise God in Jesus Blessed Holy Name for all His tender mercies & pray I may be of more service to Him,    I wish I knew just what I ought to be doing.   about His work.   I Praise Jesus.

Thurs. Aug. 3. 1950./ page. 2638./ 30.y.p.-1-H-eggs today./ WE had lunch with Nellie & the children Mon.    I got one corset & left the others to be fixed a little so I’ll have to go back again.    We call at Ineze home but she wasn’t home.    Today I did the washing,   Elbert went & sold eggs & his Knee is terribly swollen & pains him bad.      It’s been a partly cloudy day hot sun very cool breeze.    We got a shower of little hail stones the other day size of the end of my big finger only over the house for a second & was gone & melted just about as fast as it hit.   & the Radio going down to 50 degree tonight.   De Haan’s book came today, (called) God’s Miracle Book Our Bible.  

Fri. Aug. 4. 1950./ 37-y.p. 2-H-eggs today./ Well I haven’t felt able to work to- day so only did what I had to do.    Elbert’s Knee is swollen bad    so it’s hard for him to get around on it & I’m not able to wait on him    so life is really miserable.    I managed to get a couple of meals today & hope tomorrow will find us both better.    Some one’s stealing my rags & has been for a long time now    I pray God will punish them, it’s so hard for me to wash & bleach the grain bags, but the skunk that takes them don’t care.   Lord help me before it’s to late   And teach Laura Ann to live close to Thee in Jesus Name I ask, Amen.   Received letter from Ethel today. on a sheet of note paper with two red roses with green leaves & a red double [?].   It’s been a nice day, like early Sept. hot sun, partly cloudy & so cool at night.    I received a letter from Ethel telling me about Loura Ann    she been in the Hospital for 2 week with appendicitis,    she never said a word about her mother,    she said Walter took to Elyria a good mess of fish,    when they were down here last & she cleaned them,    I’m wondering, if she really scaled & cleaned them or cleaned up on them after they were cooked,    she never use to like to do the cleaning.    We had fish dinner the day she was here & so she said to tell “Elbert” she enjoyed the fish.    I’m glad she enjoyed them.

Sat. Aug. 5. 1950./ page 2639 [should be 2640]./ 37.y.p.-1-H-eggs today./ We9ll, I didn’t do only what I had todo all day & Elbert took my shoes down to get soles & heels on them & I wrote a note in bold hand writing & said only sole & heels & so,    he ask Elbert if the other job wasn’t satisfactry & he said her feet are so bad,    I told Elbert twice, no wedges on my shoes so he brought them home with wedges on both shoes clear to the center & they hurt me so bad    I’ve said a plenty,    seems I can’t get a thing done right unless I’m there to see about it & he says he can’t help it if he can’t remember,    but he can remember,    he don’t like Tommy & so the spite comes out on me.    I pray God will in Jesus Name help me & that I can get the wedge taken out without to much trouble, & that it wont spoil my shoes.    We got a letter from Vern Hammond today,    he said his sister was in the Hospital 3 1/2 weeks & died after he got there & the funeral would be tomorrow, Aug. [looks like 2nd] it was the sister he had hoped to take back to his home    he said Vern. Jr. was O.K & that he would write again.    I do hope to be able to go to church tomorrow.    It’s been cool breeze partly cloudy & hot sun & it’s cool again tonight.    I thank and Praise God for all my blessings in Jesus Holy Name and wish I was more like Him that I might do more to help in His work and be stronger that I might endure all the hardships better than I do,    help me Jesus, I pray, Amen.    Frank Bonney was here and went wood chuck hunting & got one & gave it to Elbert,    he didn’t say whether he got any more,    he came in & talked a few minutes    He ask how I liked the onions & I said they were fine    but Elbert said they were so hot she can’t take more than two or 3 bite at a meal & Frank said that was the first time he’d had a complaint & he’d give away quite a few to several different people,    so, maybe I wont get any more,    I don’t know what’s wrong with Elbert of late,    he seems to make things as difficult as possible for me, and I’ve tried so hard to help him, but just one more lesson of gratitude, I suppose.
