Jumprings

Jumprings, jumprings, jumprings…I’m trying to get them wound and cut before surgery on Monday.  I think I wound about 35 troy ounces of silver.  That’s a shitload of rings.  I hope I get some amazing chainmaille done with all this.  It’s fun to do but my thumb really hurts.  Sheesh.  Now tomorrow I have to cut and tumble them all. 

I think my crowness is coming out.  I love small shiny things and a ton of jumprings just makes me feel wonderful.  I really am a goof.  I’ll take a picture after I get themall nice and shiny. 

We had sushi as usual for a Thursday night.  We are such creatures of habit.  Not only do we have to go for sushi every Thursday, we always start with the same 4 or 5 things.  Boring…we are old and boring…LOL  One of the things that I love most about going is our friends Dick and Edith.  They are just too of the coolest people you’d ever want to meet.  Edith told me that that her nursing skills weren’t great but she is a Jewish mother and that should count for something.  I love her to bits.  We’re going there Saturday night for pizza and a movie.  I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday night.  Dick is a wonderful artist.  Their house is full of amazing art, some of which Dick has done and some of what they have collected. 

Chainmaille

I am absolutely in love with chainmaille.  I even bought my own jump ring maker.  Once I wasn’t scared of it, it was great.  🙂  I could get muscles from winding those rings.  I have to do a ton of them for my classes in Jan and Feb.

I’m having back surgery Thanksgiving week and not looking forward to it.  Isn’t that a surprise.  Hope I have all my chainmaille stuff together so I can do a lot.  I was told that I can’t do stairs for 2 weeks so I’m going to be stuck upstairs for a while.  I think I’ll be bad and go down for dinner at least.  Should we take some bets about how much I can get done in two weeks?  Of course, I suppose it depends on how many drugs I have too.  Maybe we should bet on how many and how round the rings end up.  LOL
