Cold Steel and A Warm Feeling

Today 40 pounds of steel shot from an online reloading store arrived on the doorstep. That's only a little less than what Theron weighs and I can't pick him up either. I'm in love. It's so beautiful, like those candy cake decorations. It has such a pleasing shape. It has a pleasing sound as the pellets slide against each other. A pleasing weight that makes crafting a 'feel the burn' activity. Packing tape was not enough to keep its big loveliness from splitting the seams of the box or the plastic caps that were glued to the bottles.
