Sunday.  AA sick till 5 AM, then slept and I lay down and got a couple hours sleep.  Mabel came about 10:30 and stayed till 2, got Mrs. Reed, practical nurse from Grace's to, and bathe and change her.  A A good all day.  Did not try to get up.  I read "Tears for Rachel" by "onions" an English story.  The heroin waited 9 years, then married a kid.  Went to Christian church with Jess.  Dr. Trust preached a memorial for Mrs. Tisdall.  Hayes sang, a brother of the choir leader.

Monday, October 17 AA in bed all day.  Did not seem to want to get up.  Edna here looking after things, she one uptown and got a new washbasin and a slop bucket for AA.  Sada Dickson here in p.m.  I uptown for groceries for AA.  Saved $.40 on what she would have paid for things.

Tuesday AA up and dressed and over to sit in my room before I was dressed, about nine.  I was awake in the night, so slept late and then lay and planned Edna's coat dress.  Worked on it a while, then found that Mrs. read did not mean to do the little washing for AA and went to do it myself.  The girls can pay me if they like, three vests all smeared, bath towels same, and old ways to, night gown, the standard cover, her drawers and some rags, all in bad condition, then a towel and apron that were all rights.  That things were laying in the pantry or cool closet where I keep all my eats, so did not want them there.  Edy called to know if I'd go to central church to a new group concert.  Jess and Mabel W, also called I to mail some letters for Mrs. read, then to Jesse's for my story papers.  Mrs. Boles there with music for them to sing at Ohl's Golden wedding.  Florence is having it in her house in Ashland.  Google her came to tell me to go to loaners to apron meeting.  Dale, Sarah and girls here tonight.  Edna wants me to take care of AA.  Will try, I think.
