It's so big and squishy and wonderful.
So much fun to make!
Excuse the unmanicured hand. Ugh.

It's so beautiful outside and cozy inside I can hardly stand it!
I hate to end on an bummer note, but I do want to say how awful the events of yesterday were. I happened to be watching Shep on Fox News (I'm a news buff! I'm always watching the news!) when the story broke yesterday. We turned it off after the last news conference at 11:00pm (Pacific Time). I also want to say how ridiculous it is that the media is being so politically correct and "delicate" about saying what it is...TERRORISM! Wake up, people! Do you think they would have been so hesitant to give names and what exactly was happening if the suspect names were John Cook and Diane Smith? NO! For God's sake!
And while I'm bitching about the media, why don't they show videos of the hundreds of police officers that are shot and killed FOR NOTHING every year? Why do they run videos over and over again of black men being shot by police and call it racism. I'm not saying the officers are not wrong in certain instances, because they have been VERY WRONG, but why is it given so much attention and police officers villainized and idiots riot in the streets when the exact same thing is happening to police officers everywhere regularly and it barely registers in the news, if at all?? I'm so sick of reverse racism! That's exactly what it is! I do not believe that the vast majority of white people in this country are racist against black people or anyone else. Yes, there are some, but there are just as many blacks with a huge chips on their shoulders being racists against whites. GAH. I'm sick of it, I tell you.
Our country is going to hell in a hand-basket. We're well on our way already. I'm glad I'll probably be dead in 30-40ish years and won't have to see what it comes to.
Oh my. That was an unplanned rant, but those are my thoughts at the moment. I really don't care if you agree with me or not. So there.
My thoughts and prayers for those victims and families in San Bernardino.
