02/03/2008: "Manna from Heaven (or...DC actually)"
On saturday I got a check for $500 in the mail! A friend of mine had borrowed the money around 7 years ago and had never paid it back. Quite frankly, I had written it off, assuming I'd never get it back (I think if you loan friends or family money it has to be in that spirit).
However, there it was...after all this time.
So I spent a lot of time this weekend time shopping online at PMC supply stores. I bought a ton of stuff, silver clay, a firing torch, a mold kit for firing rings so they don't shrink too much, clay tools, all kinds of stuff. And when the dust settled I still had $100 left to spare. It's more than enough equipment to make our rings (plus a lot of other pieces) and way cheaper (and more meaningful) than just buying rings (imo).
I also went and saw There Will Be Blood....all I can say is Holy Crap! That movie was intense and Daniel Day Lewis better get best actor! The soundtrack was a bit much, honestly I wanted to tear my hair out from it a couple of times but I think it was supposed to have that effect.
It's still snowing out, it's been snowing all weekend. I meant to get out there to stomp around in it but it never happened. Some weekends I'm full of good intentions to be healthy and get outside and be productive (like I still haven't been down to clean the snow off of our boats and Aaron's been working all weekend)...lazy lazy me...when it's snowing out, don't you find snuggling up on the couch with a hot coffee just too too wonderful to bear?
