High 64 rainy
Peculiar Christmas – Filled Dave’s stocking “Hung by the chimney with care”, guitar basic book and strap – diary – candy bars – gum. Howard made me 3 plaques with his original designs in brass nails.
Dave gave me the wooden tray he made in Industrial Tech. Finished very poorly. Kass’ gift was a crystle [sic] from House of Design. Brenda Eisman gave me a box of chocolate molded bells, trees, santas, etc.
At 12:00 went to see Mother. Took her my red “booties” & an african violet to hang on her plant support that Mary gave her. No restaurants open so went to Mary’s for pancakes & more popcorn in their air popper. They seemed to like the 12 nest aluminum Martin house with collapsilble pole I gave them.
Home about 2:30 – threw darts at Dave’s new board from Mary & Ken. Read picture history book that had been Mother’s and annotated it. Will give to David H. Made pizza – scrambled eggs in my gift – made chili for tomorrow and washed.
