Dear Douglas:

Friday and Saturday we had to start the furnace again but yesterday was a lovely day and it seemed good to be out in the sunshine and warmth again. Noone went out to church, we felt that we just wanted to take life easy and not rush as we always have to on other days. We had a good pot roast and new peas for dinner but nary a potato. When I tell you of these shortages, don’t think I am complaining for that is far from my thoughts. We are not suffering a particle, have an abundance to eat, but it is just interesting to know how different the situations [sic] is from the past...
