Wednesday, November 30 rained all day.  Jess came this way on her way to Harriett Clark's to the aid meeting to borrow some buttons for and apron she was making.  I to Gugler's in evening with her to price the bazaar things.  Mrs. Wadsworth the only other one there.  Turned to sleet.  Letter from Tressa with one and closed from Mrs. Grafton.

Thursday.  Much colder.  Wrote birthday letter to Lois and sent Dana's letter that Ad sent me.  Ede came just as I finished washing dinner dishes, and stayed till AA and I went to Missionary.  Paid gas and electric.  Ethel came, after AA had gone to bed to bring Christmas cards I ordered.

Friday -- Sick in night stomach & asthma & headache – so lay awake quite a while, then slept till 9:30, sickish till after noon.  Ede came at 2:00 to go to Bazaar.  A.A. also went.  Got flyswatter and holder $.65 also Christmas cards $.35 at $.10 store.  Would like to have been able to go and help at bazaar.  AA told me at noon that I was getting so cranky about things.  I told her I'd rather get dinner myself and she was miffed quite a little, but O! how I wish she did not want to help and bother so, and wipe the windows right over the cooking all the time or be washing her teeth at the spigot when I want that or in front of the cabinet when I want that.
