Clear and cold, brilliant sunshine –
A.M. Unpacking the box from Rehn’s –
P.M. – rearranging the material in the trunk of the car, putting the tire back on the shelf where it originally had been –
At 4:00 Bertha called on the intercom to tell me that Evie Olmsted was here.
A very pleasant visit – with the usual good-humored badinage – She has a wonderful spirit.
She wanted to see the painting “The Constant Leaf” and when I mentioned swearing at a painting because it was so stubborn (Moonrise in the Woods) she wanted to see that too. So we went out to the studio – she liked both pictures, but especially the “Moonrise etc.” — she called it an enchanted woods –
Evening – Mart over to get her pictures, cut our  hair and chatting up a while –
A cold night (28° and due to go lower) – The waning moon high in the east cold and brilliant in the west Jupiter –
(The other night about eleven I saw Orion rising in the S. E. – the first sight of it since last Spring.)
Evening music – Borodin’s Symphony #2 and first movement of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto.
