This morning when I went to set foot outdoors to go and do some errands, I found a skating rink right outside my back door. The errands could wait until tomorrow so I made a hasty retreat back inside where I stayed put for the rest of the day. I lit a fire, baked some cookies, wrote some emails that required some thought, contemplated the state of the world on this, the week that will see Donald Trump inaugurated as president of the United States and played around with carving some new printing blocks. Here’s part of the glorious mess I made while playing. Fun!
