March 20, 1976 The Thunder Showers, The Batch of Rolls, The Jury Duty, The Tomato Seeds and The Spring-like Weather
"We got up early this morning and were working in the yard before the neighbors were stirring. Then thunder showers chased us in at noon but we got a lot of yard work done and feel good about it. We'll have more dirt hauled in after April 1 and then will have to do a lot of the work again. It takes dirt a long time to settle. The sun is out again but we're not going back out.
We go to our potluck supper tomorrow evening and I have to take rolls & relishes. I have a batch of bran rolls mixed up in the refrigerator.
This week has sure been hectic. I had two meetings and I have been trying to get some things done before I go on jury duty. They called me early yesterday and said not to come next week so that helps. I've been trying to sew and finally did finish the applique´ block for the Faculty Women's quilt. It looks real nice. Then I've been cutting quilt pieces for another workshop & that has taken hours. Usually the women do their own but I didn't have enough pattern books to go around so I've done it. They are ready for them to sew now.
I took the certificates back to the bank and put them in my safe deposit box.
I had a letter from Bessie and Buddy is fine. They got some medicine right away so he's ok.
My tomato seeds are sprouting like everything. There wasn't a one yesterday & now they are all over the pots.
The weather is warm and spring-like. I hope it stays this way now."
Hope you are fine."
