In past years in this space I’ve had a lot of fun on April Fool’s Day crafting witty posts. For the past two days I’ve been battling an insidious illness which yesterday made my head hurt to the point where reading was nearly impossible. As you can thus imagine, yesterday was a little less than “productive.” I did manage to bake a chicken and snap a photo or two. Unfortunately I was so weak and in pain that those photos remain inside the camera still.
I’m once again just waking up an the hour at which I’m normally at work. So with great apologies today’s post will be a lame as yesterday’s.
This Is No Joke Either
Today is the day that I intended to finally announce my LLC. By now I was to have a business bank account in place (still waiting for that coveted credit card to get approved), a logo, and a website. Regardless, I want to get it out there, so I introduce to you:
Sharpened Stone, LLC (no need to click on that link as it will take you nowhere).
One more thing…
