Then we staid & talked by the firelight till after dark - Claude & Con went away, & then Mary & Edith and Frankcame & we had doughnuts & milk & then he & Helen went to church. I wrote & read & made toast. Haven't been out today. Claude made a cover for a Stevenson calendar which Alice Atkinson is getting up. Dec. 20. Monday Went shopping with Con tonight. Then walked home to a late supper & went over to see Ned Dutcher Orchard - at her Aunt's - stopped at Baker's to leave Lura's gift's (Turkish slippers & a book) with Charlie
