Saturday 8th December 1917

It rained heavily last night, or rather early  this morning, but it turned out  a beautiful day.  The wind has at last changed round to SW.   I was working in my garden , one of the three corner beds which before the rain I had a difficulty in getting a spade into now I could dig with ease.  I was principally engaged in weeding.
Willie and Dave covered in their charcoal kiln and set a light to it in the afternoon .  Late in the pm I took some flowers to the Church.
