Well, shall we give Tuesday a hearty welcome? The sun is shining. Our temps are supposed to reach the upper 70s (F). I can see yardwork in my future for later this afternoon. That's fine. I enjoy being outside.
Yesterday work was rather ho hum. Nothing exciting. I did have a rather large sale to a gent who didn't want any seams in his carpet. He ended up getting just about everything he wanted because he was the one spending the money. He couldn't go completely seamless because of the size of his rooms, however I did manage to have the seams located in places where there wouldn't be a problem with foot traffic. Truthfully, in all the time I've been working as a flooring specialist, we have never had a complete about the seams, either showing up, or coming apart. Still, people hear seam and they automatically want to think the worst.
Production should be starting either today or tomorrow on the audiobook. Even though I had requested permission to use song lyrics from artists, I have never received a response with either a yes or no. Because they would be performed, albeit in a spoken voice, I either removed them completely, or drastically altered them so as to be unrecognizable to avoid any form of copyright infringement claims.
Here's a picture of one of my slightly orange Itoh peonies and a bud that's going to open when this one fades.
