I was torn last night about whether to go to my drawing session or join the whole family at the Old Timer's hockey game. This was my compromise. First we had a big dinner together. Brother Greg came with his whole family, and my Greg brought his boys and nephew Brady. I made sausage lasagna and a ham, a couple of big salads. I love big family dinners.
Hockey bores me, so I sat and sketched instead of pretending to watch it. The final score was something like 17 to 3 for the firefighters. I saw the first goal and after that was looking elsewhere. I'm sure there were players on the ice, but I didn't really see them as I was looking at everything else!

I got out the carving tools and made another lino cut yesterday. I love the planning and carving part of making these. I need to learn more about how to pull good prints, but there's a group session tomorrow night - I can ask the people there what I can do differently to get bettter prints.
Just as I was pulling this first print, Rob, MaryEllen and the girls showed up at the door. We had a great day snow shoeing, sledding, hot tubbing, cooking, watching Super Bowl and having a great team dinner involving risotto, mushroom pork chops and champagne. I love Sundays!
