Thursday 6th December 1917

It was a fine day, but cloudy in the afternoon, and in the evening it came on a misty rain, which did not last long, but I think rain is not far off.

Willie & Dave were hauling wood & building their kiln.  I went down to see them in the pm and carried up some creek sand.  I planted a bleeding heart near the citron tree and a cosmea where the red sunflowers had not grown.  Went down for the mail in the evening.  There was to be a meeting in the Hall about getting up a Patriotic Carnival,  Delegates were to come over from Warkworth to explain the matter,  none of us went.
