Zoey the cat does not like to wait around in the morning and likes to have her food by 5:30 am. Bear the dog is quite happy with that schedule because he is need to go outside for his first relief of the day.
Next I feed the dog, make my coffee and play Gummy drop and Wordscapes just to get the brain working and engaged. Next I make a list of what needs to be done for the day (later in the day everything goes to hell in a hand basket). Then I either go upstairs to the computer or downstairs to the studio.

Amazon requires me to have 3 linked sales per month so I need to build my following and would love if people recommend my site.
