ok, so there's a zillion other things i should be doing but i can't help myself when it comes to making new things. inspiration is something that must give way
forget about cooking dinner or cleaning house... it's friday anyways!
today i am at home in my house
just like sunny,our adopted/rescue calif. desert tortoise who roams the backyard.
free to do as he pleases
president obama is visiting this area today to "declare the majestic san gabriel mountains a national monument" it's wonderful to see these beautiful mountains appreciated.
also another good reason to stay home and avoid the "obama-geddon" traffic.
now to order a pizza!
