Baby Blues

So I am going through some photos and come across this photo of my grandson Eli, who I nicknamed Bubby. He was so little in this photo! I miss him being a baby. He is now 2 1/2 and starting to talk. As much as I loved him being little, I love him becoming a little guy! I always wanted him to call me grandma, or mimi, or nana but much to my dislike he calls me Memaw. I have never really liked that name for grandma, but I guess since I call him Bubby, he can call me Memaw.
He was a happy little guy! Such a ham too! He was actually smiling at one week old, laughing in his sleep. I have no idea what a baby has to laugh about, but I guess the angels were being funny, cause he would lay there sleeping and his precious little laugh was such a delight. I can hardly wait to see what a happy little kid he grows into and pray that he doesn't get sullen in his teen years. I think I will frame this photo because this just makes me smile! Hope you are having a wonderful smiley week too!!

Wonderful, Wonderful Day

I am sitting on my porch in the Midwest and the temperature this morning was 69 degrees!! Can you believe it? The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and all is quiet on the western front. Being an unemployed mom does have it's perks. I can finally sit on my porch and work from home on my computer, sipping my first fresh cup o'joe and enjoy the day the Lord has made.
I am hashing out ideas for business marketing. I am learning about press releases and promotional postcards, and realizing how little I know! Time to put the thinking cap on and put it in high gear to focus on that. It is not exactly my favorite thing to do. Those of you who know me, know that I would much rather be drawing and painting or working on digital designs. So if anybody has ideas for home business marketing, please comment me and tell me about them! I literally started this business with no money ( my favorite way!) so I am looking for marketing techniques that don't require too much money.
Never the less, this early fall morning is putting me in the mood for pumpkins and spices and the smell of wood smoke from my neighbors fireplace. Too bad we can't just have fall all the time! Have wonderful day and come visit me tomorrow!
