Saint Bernard Puppy: Let’s Have Fun Today.

A Very Mellow Fellow

I upgraded to a premium level yesterday and was eligible for a new url. Instead of taking WordPress’ suggestion, BarbaraDeanAliaga.com or something that was similarly logical, I meandered downstairs to brainstormed with my husband, Manny. We did the normal kidding around thing until we found a name that has such a great sound and entirely no meaning. Well, it really stems from meaning. Abu is what our grandsons call Abuelo, and Nana is my current name. We eventually discovered AbuNana.  Of course, we will each take individual credit for it!   Go ahead and say it over and over, Ah’-bu-nana, Ah’-bu-nana. Sounds pretty cool to us.  What kind of service would Abunana provide?  Would it be an Abunana Self-Help Center? Or an Abunana Design Studio?  An Abunana Delicacy Shoppe?  An Abunana Self-Publishing?  We were getting pretty kidding pretending to answer the phone, Abunana, at your service!  Such a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

But really, what about a place where grandparents could be supported in writing and publishing their stories.  Wouldn’t that be a fun place to run?  What do you think?

After the chanting of Abunana simmered down, I went back upstairs to draw and this is what came out.  The first Abunana pillow!  Never stop dreaming!

I know what I want to do when I grow up!

I woke up at 1:30 again last night.  Four-and-a-half-hours of sleep and I seem to need a break. So here comes a new line of designs, and at 4:00 I’m back to sleep to complete the 3 hours everyone says I need to keep my head on straight.

Last night I tried a little experiment to guide my dreams.  I wanted to take a very, very expensive vacation to a tropical paradise or just the oceanfront.  I never made it.  At least I don’t remember dreaming any such dream.  Isn’t that always the way.  Things just get by us without notice.

Today I’m going to try to watch closely for every opportunity of enjoyment, especially with others who come into my day.  I’m going to have a plush designer pillow of a day!

You know the old saying, keep your day job.  Okay, for now.  But I know what I want to do when I grow up!
