Day 543: anvils

Day 543:

Did you know you could wear out an anvil? All those cartoons we all watched as kids, all those dropped anvils, nobody ever suggested one could wear out.

And yet the one that I forged when I first figured out how to forge has broken down so badly that it’s not even repairable (and what would I repair it on? Another anvil?) so I’ve ended up melting the best surviving bits of it down.

Tomorrow I’ll forge another anvil, I guess, and then look for a good amount of ore…because while making an anvil is critical to shaping good tools, and I can’t not-have one, not-having ore to make good tools kind of make the anvil a moot point.

Somehow I feel like a roadrunner should be responsible for this and I have no idea why.
