Quite showery today. I went in the garden after breakfast with Patsy and, with Bill’s assistance, transplanted a fine parcel of Early York cabbage plants. Came in when Patsy went about dinner, and Hardie and myself took down the loom and fixed cooking stove in place in the weaving room. Nannie’s delighted with it. Even blind John came to feel everything pertaining to it & made many observations on all he could see. Patsy washed the room after dinner and we commenced making a transfer of table fixtures and will take family meals in there. The room is so snug and comfortable.
