November TUESDAY 22 1887

Lewis has finished the Fall ploughing to day, for which I am thankful. We have only ploughed about eighteen acres however where we want to sow oats in Spring. I have we been working slowly away at the apples, and have not finished picking them over yet. The weather continues moderate, the winds having fallen since yesterday. It is warm for this time of the year.

November WEDNESDAY 23 1887

Got done picking over apples to day for winter. Lewis and and I have also fenced the straw-stack in order to keep the cattle from wasting staw. This took nearly all day. Had a straw-berry patch ploughed on the hill-side in front of the house this forenoon. It is wonderful how warm and comfortable the weather continues to be for this time of year. It seeems like Indian Summer, just now.
