Cold but plesant
Zero this A.M. rising to 10 [degrees] above just after noon-
Done all the chores and shovelled path to corn house for corn-
Made a layer cake with crabapple jelly filling. Made apple sauce*-
Charles came for list of groceries to get for us in town
Rec'd letter from Christine-
Mother difficult this AM-
*I wondered whether Irene was cooking apple sauce on Jan 16 when she stated she "cooked sweet apples." Since she used the term apple sauce on this date, I can only assume that 9 days prior, she was cooking something else.
