I poured my silver ingot (First try was a success!) and today began the process of hot forging a sundae spoon! It’s thrilling, and supremely hard work! I found it thoroughly therapeutic and I think I’ll be hitting metal more often. I’m going to end up with a ton of silverware, I fear!
By the way, this is what you get when you YouTube search “pouring silver ingots”:

And the moon’s a silver slipper
It’s pouring champagne stars
Broadway’s like a serpent
Pulling shiny top-down cars
-Tom Waits

I think it’s lovely! I think I’m going to be obsessed with Tom Waits…as of now:)

I wish I had some pictures of my ingot (read: first-born child) but alas, I’ve misplaced the cord to my camera and the charge is dead! I have to find it or I’ll be in trouble.

I always kind of had trouble with having people in my house. It felt invasive. But my goodness, when it’s the right group and the right number it’s wonderful. Tonight was fabulous. Everything fell together perfectly! I love to be a little hostess when everyone is laughing and eating and having a good time.

It was girls’ night, you see, and the girls, Amanda, Elizabeth, Sara and Joanna, were over, and I set up a little picnic-like area in the living room with our fabulously square coffee table, and served cheese fondue with fresh veggies and bread, and the most stellar chocolate fondue with fresh fruit! Despite New Paltz’s supreme inability to sell Fondue forks anywhere it was delish, and we topped it all off with some yummy wine, fabulous conversation, and Casablanca.

This is to become a tradition, we have decided, and since I made such an excessive amount of chocolate fondue we’ll be eating sundaes next time! Old movies and classic games, topped with good food. We’ll be experimenting with different recipes and having a blast! If anyone has any recommendations we welcome them!

I could gush all night long about how happy I am to have really wonderful friends and such good company, but I have to get up hella early for a Habitat for Humanity build, so I’m signing off!
