Scratchings in the Dirt

Season’s Greetings

I’m taking a break from Christmas baking, which I really love, to have a cup of tea and post our recent happenings. We had a quieter weekend than planned due to some bad weather. Two hockey games were canceled on Saturday, Adam’s in Leader and Derek’s in Biggar, so their mom got some work out of them instead.

Adam’s Bantam teamed whipped Wilkie 9 -3 in Kerrobert last Thursday. It was great hockey, as Wilkie always comes looking for some action. They had a weak goalie that night, and ours played the best game I’ve ever seen him play, which would account for the score. Adam got a beauty goal and an assist.

Stephen’s Bantam team won their game against Naicam on Friday night, but Stephen didn’t have a great game. He was coming down with the flu, and had passed out at school and hit his head, so he wasn’t feeling too peppy. We were trying out the new video camera, but didn’t get too much footage of Stephen, as he was mostly sitting on the bench hanging his head!

Clem and I played for the Chamber of Commerce Christmas party on Saturday evening. It went well, and they asked us to bring some CD’s to sell, so it was worth the trip in to town in a storm! I missed the Senior game, though, when Luseland beat home team Kerrobert. What a shame!

On Sunday we went to Rosetown with the Kindersley Bantams, where they got soundly spanked, 7 – 1. Stephen played a good game, but Rosetown was hungry, and they were all over Kindersley. It was disappointing for the team, as that is apparently quite the rivalry. Next time! Adam and Derek stayed in town for the day, mostly playing shinny at the rink. When we got to town, Adam was all by himself on the ice, and the rink was abandoned. He was perfecting his low shot. I guess we’ll see at the next game!

Better go finish the baking (and wrapping and cleaning and decorating) before the big day arrives. Thanks for stopping by!
