Well, business at the sumo shop is picking up with the warmer weather, looks like the slow season is done. Sent 20 sets of suits out last week, need to pick up 4 returns at UPS this morning, and I believe all four of those will go back out today to other customers. Currently 53F/11C with a high of 80F/27C expected, all sun and no rain...the kind of day made for opening the garage doors and letting the shop air out after being closed up for months. Working on my first cup of coughee, Scar is out on the lead making sure the front yard is safe of worms and other assorted critters. For the moment, all is right with my world...

Sounds like you are going to have a great day ahead of you. Maybe you could train Scar to put the worms in buckets and sell them as bait. There's a good profit to be made. LOL. Worms are expensive.

I was sitting on the bench out in the yard with him at my feet yesterday when he suddenly took off and started checking something out about 15 feet away...the guy has extremely keen eyesight

@JolietJake he is a good hunter. My cats haven't brought me any worms. Lotus would often bring me a snake. That cat was a great hunter. Miss her so much. She is chasing the mice over the rainbow bridge.

Hmmm my Monday. Woke up early to do yoga today and then went back home to take a shower and rush to the office to finish my marketing plan. I forgot to drop off some of the products i'm selling at the store and i also forgot to ship some items to my clients. I guess, the yoga made me forgot everything but the marketing plan! Have a great Monday!

@JolietJake Oh my, I would not be able to work that many hours a week. I get tired working my hours as it is.

@gudheart I can usually set my own hours, but it's getting to the time of year where I won't have much back-up inventory to ship unless I clean stuff every day.

@JolietJake , I love days when all is right with ones world. It is at last pouring and storming outside here by me, we have been waiting for rain, hence, for now, all is right with mine too.

I don't seem to get that many of them these days, so when I do, it always gives me a bit of pleasure

Good Monday morning to you as well! We are expecting similar weather today, I can enjoy some of it this morning as I don't have to start work until after 11, which is a nice change.

I should have a fairly short day, I think half of what I am picking up will still be unused and i just have to reseal it and send it back out. The other sets won't take long to clean unless they're extremely filthy, which happens sometimes.

It should be pretty good, I'm just having trouble trying to convince Scar he has to wait until it is daylight to go for his walk...
