Oct. 26, 2019: I want to get this letter ready for the mail tomorrow. We had a nice day. I did laundry, but it was too cloudy most of the day. Ivan was weedeating. Later this afternoon, Barbara and I went with one of her ladies to Joann Fabrics to pick out curtain material for her. She wants me to make them for her. We came home and took the laundry that wasn’t all the way dry and hung it in the basement. I also defrosted the refrigerator.
Last night, Barbara and I burned some leaves that were in the ditch. Ivan uses leaves for bedding for the horse, but he’ll get lots more.
Wednesday evening, Albert Detweilers, Ervin Bylers, and we were to Mose and Clara for Clara’s birthday. Clara has a lot of pain. She gets around with a walker. In November, she has to have a hip replacement.
Ivan has to go for laser surgery Nov. 14. He has severe spinal spinous. He has two spurs.
We have our garden cleared out, all but the carrots. We also have 25 strawberry plants. Ivan wants to get the garden plowed and to sow rye in it.
