Rain, Tornados And Floods, Oh My!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 28, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Crazy day today! The rain here just started, but all over the state it has been raining for hours. Flood warnings, tornado warnings and watches, people getting stuck in flood waters. I hope you all stay safe. Just in case you haven’t heard, it is not a good idea to be out and about today. The ground is way saturated and the water can only start flowing down hill or sitting. Today is not a day for travel. So, if at all possible anyone in these areas, just stay home for a while, and double check the status of roads, before you try to venture out! The emergency agencies are overwhelmed with rescues, due to people getting stuck in flood waters, car accidents, telephone poles down, traffic lights down and possible tornado damage. Please stay home, and let them try to do what is necessary. No need to add to the list they already have.

Still working on gloves here, had some errands to run this morning, and now off to work on my crocheting. I want them done! I want to paint! Argh! Anyway, just thought I would stop in and update everyone. Tennessee is having some bad storms today, so any of you here beware, and anyone thinking of coming this way, take your time! We need the rain for sure, it is just difficult when it all comes at once, it does not have time to soak in like it should! Thankfully, I did not have to go far to do my errands, and I was home before the storms traveled my way! Lots of scary pictures on the news, roads closed, cars stranded, people stranded with those cars, waiting for rescue. Not a fun day to be out on the roads.

No word on any lottery winnings, there is a drawing tonight, keep your fingers crossed for me. Got a big move coming up in the near future could use the cash for sure! I am excited, I have rashes on my arms, I think it may be hives. Been doing benadryl and cortisone, it fades it, but it hasn’t gone away. Thinking the excitement over the move, anxiousness over all the things I need to get done are making me a little sensitive. Plus. just all and out happy about seeing family, so much going through my mind. In the end though, this too will pass. Another page of my life begins and only the future will show where it all takes me! I am very excited!

Hoping if you are not in all this rain you are having a beautiful day! No matter where you are that this is a good day for you, stay safe and sound, sending my love to you as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Thank God It’s Funday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 25, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, hoping your Friday is off to a great start! Giving you an opportunity to have a well deserved and well needed weekend of fun and laughter! For me, more of the same, too much work at the house and not enough on my projects. Hoping this just mean my weekend will be all about projects and things that bring me joy! Now as with all good will wishes, please have fun that does not require you to end up with big problems, because that my friend is not what fun is. Fun is about good hearted and good natured pleasure that does not require a jail sentence or destruction of some one’s ego, health, freedom or sanity! Just in case you forget.

I myself am really stoked about getting this project done and moving forward and getting those paint brushes out again. It feels like withdrawals. So, the sooner I get finished with this the quicker I get to painting! Been thinking really hard about getting involved with helping other people, just can’t pick one thing that will work. Everything seems to suite me in one way or another, an unfortunately, like you know, time is always at a shortage. If you have any great ideas, I am excited to hear what they are, all serious ideas will be considered. Just a note to you in advance, it may be I take you up on it and get advice on how to get involved. Let me know what you think.

Wanted to mention the OWN network also today. Not sure if you have been checking it out, there are a lot of great programs on this new network. Their are several, that I have been watching and so far, I really like it. It fits in with the other channels I do watch, not everything is for me, however, there are several things I do record and watch weekly. If you are a fan of Oprah and her ideology, this is a great place to continue to grow and learn some really exciting things! Master Class is one of my favorites, and the season finale of Your Own Show is tonight! Also, a new program about pregnant women is prison just started, can’t remember the name and Lisa Lings, Your America ( I think), you will know them when you see them. Lots of really interesting things to help understand so many things, that most of us never see a side of. Let me know what you think!

Finally, lottery is tonight, wishing you luck if you play. Wish me luck back! If you do not, I respectfully understand and hope that your luck is also good in whatever you choose to do! Have  a great night, sending out my love to you and yours, as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Sleepy Thursday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 24, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Today is a sleepy day for me. Just got in an hour ago, been out to pay bills and get groceries and gas. Last night was crazy though. I did not fall asleep until after three this morning, and got up at eight. I am so very ready for a nap! Got a lot done, and still have more to do, but I am sure some well deserved red eye would do me a world of good. The weather is making it easier, it is cloudy and rainy and cool. Perfect weather for a nap, even if I wasn’t already exhausted. When I am done here, a nice blanket and pillow are calling my name.

Per the lottery to prove how tired I am, I managed to discard my lottery ticket without checking the numbers from last night. Well, I am pretty sure it wasn’t a winner, not being negative, but I did look at them and it is very unlikely that my ticket was a winner of any kind. Mental note to self, try not to do things related to money when tired, it could be very costly!

As for working in the online shops, no sales yet, but I remain hopeful that as the year moves on that things will begin to move in the right direction. Even though sales have not been happening, it does appear that the amount of hits, or stops into the shops and certain items seems to be increasing, so that is a good sign. I did Google myself last night (while I fought for sleep), I noticed that I guess other people have posted things form my shop in different shops, not for sale, but in blogs or other information sites.  Not sure what it all means, I am hoping this is a good thing. If you know what this is, a note to give me the heads up would be greatly appreciated.

The phone has been crazy and I am back after much housework, cooking, a nap and several phone calls. It is finally time for me to get some work on my crocheting on the way, got to have it done by the 10th of March, so got to get it done. Lots more to do after that. I am getting so excited about seeing family again. It has been years, so it is well appreciated and deserved.

I hope you r week is closing with great and wonderful things. Lots of laughs and great memories that you can keep in your heart for years to come. If you feel like your life is empty, immerse yourself in the helping of some one you know or don’t know for that matter. Give what you can to them, even if it is simply a conversation. Those little things will truly bring such joy and connection into your life. I am on my own journey, very soon to depart, and I cannot wait to experience those things and so many more in my growth as a person! Sending out my love to you and all you love as well, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Moving Forward!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 23, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, another wild Wednesday! Hoping your hump day was a great day! Mine was busy, trying to do housework and make moving arrangements, working on my crocheting and dealing with loved ones. I am still trying to get more done before my body says, “Enough already!”. So, I am taking a quick break from laundry, vacuuming, dishes and cleaning out the fridge, as well as crocheting and juggling the phone to say, hope you are having a great day! Now, the first thing I have to say is, it looks like a real plan is coming together, which may or may not require a break from my online friends at the end of April and the beginning of May. I am indeed moving, not sure what my computer status will be after that date. I will do my best to keep things going. With the plans forming together, it has made me more excited to really get things done, I will be finally able to spend time with my girls, and I do not want it muddied up with too much work. So, the more I get done now, the easier it will be for me to visit with them.

It is very likely, there will be a major liquidation of my personal belongings to make this move as economical as possible. However, that being said, there are some things that will be difficult or maybe impossible to part with, only time will tell. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers, lots of big decisions coming my way, and I need to be ready to make fast, but wise ones. Those are always the toughest ones to make. I am happy to report that my children are completely on-board with this big change, and even seem a little excited, it makes it so much sweeter for me. They are my true loves forever! I cannot say enough how proud and happy I am to be their mother. That being said, still working on the shops online, I still have a lot of work to do on them. The good news is, it gets less every day! Hop0ing to get this crocheting project out of the way too, I am getting the itch again. Itching to paint and draw that is, I cannot stray from those for long.

As for my friends, sending out my deepest love to you all. Just a new address, not a forgotten life. I will stay in touch with you all, and always keep you in my thoughts, you are wonderful! Got a few I still have to call, before the move and everything gets too frantic, last minute stuff is not my strong point. I checked my lottery numbers for last night, not the big winner, not even a little one actually, but hoping some one reading this did. If indeed that is the case “Awesome!”. So many things I wanted to write about, but figured in my little part of the world, some of you might like to know. Tomorrow, back to the usual posts of the day, so much to say. Lots of love to you, as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Totally Tired Tuesday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 22, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, I am up. Been up for a while. Been working on my cricketing, and taking a break to check in with you. Well, as always, I hope you are having a great Tuesday! Since, sleep was like a sprinter last night, I spent more time chasing it, than actually achieving it.  So, for today energy is limited, and I am thinking brain cells as well. Exhaustion has a way of making the body function, but only at its most basic. Extra things like creativity, fast thinking, deep thought, boundless energy, etc… are just not available. Taking what is available to me and getting through the day, the best way possible, is the primary goal.

The good news is, the funk that ruled the later part of yesterday has vacated the premises. Though weary from a lack of sleep, it feels like a very positive day! The weather is gloomy, but other than that all looks good. Crazy wild dreams, followed me through the night, nothing bad. It was like story time in my sleep. While I was up, did my Tarot cards, and Angel cards as well, things are going well. Maybe a hick up or two in the next couple of weeks, other than that it appears as though things will be on the up swing very soon! Got to get into my shops and add a few items, before back to work on my crochet projects. If you get a minute check them out and let me know what you think!

As you go through your day, please keep in mind the people of New Zealand, the earthquake from yesterday, is still weighing very heavy on them today, and will continue for a long time to come. Makes me think about how fragile our existence really is here, while we went to bed last night all safe and snug, they were in ciaos. There are so many who are struggling at this time, the soldiers over seas, people in other countries facing war, terrorism and environmental destruction, just say a prayer, make a happy wish, send love, whatever you can to help them get through their day and any tough times ahead. No matter how wealthy you may or may not be, this is something we all can afford to do, take a minute and remember, that even though you may not know them personally, on this planet we are all neighbors! A moment of your time or mine is so little to ask! Thank you so much for checking in today. Wishing you the best as always, no big lottery jackpot just yet! The will be here soon, sending you my love, and to all those people who may not read this or cannot read this due to the environment around them, God Bless, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Melancholy Monday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 21, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Feeling a bit melancholy today! I know I mentioned it earlier, and actually had a better handle on it earlier. As the day passed and weakness set in, had to give into a few tears. You would be proud though, maybe ten minutes, and then I set my mind to looking at the bright side. Man, when that evil twin sets in at you, he is hard to drown out with that sweet angelic on (must be the quiet voice)! But, with any determination, that lucky angel will win! The hardest part is not letting nostalgia set in, it is one thing to reminisce over happy times and remember the good old days. Take the time to remember a lost friend or lover, but letting it take over, and thinking the good old days, are the only good days, well that is not healthy. For me, the hardest part is saying goodbye.  Goodbye to those faces, places and times. Goodbye to those feelings and familiarities. That is the hard part. Losing those warm fuzzy feelings with such fondness.

Then, the light bulb went on. Saying goodbye means saying hello, to a whole host of things. Many of which ( I am betting) will be even better than the things left behind! I keep envisioning myself lighter, some clothes in a knapsack, and my art supplies and artwork. Heading out into a sunset of unknowns. No furniture, no baggage, just me a the few necessities. It feels so good. Not sure, how much I will liquidate in the end, could be I am just over simplifying things. No worries though, still got a minute or two to get all my ducks in a row. So, while I twiddle away the hours tonight not sleeping ( apparently, this has me going, insomnia is on the menu tonight), I will be working out a plan. Not sure how much of a plan, but the beginnings are for tonight! Wish me luck, lots to sort out.

Little early for the lottery, so no news there, just yet! Hopefully tonight will be my night. I am definitely ready for some big changes. Been thinking about, finding a charity to work with, and cooking too! Lucky for me, there is a lot of talents to choose from. Just sad it is not my art just yet, been waiting my whole life for this moment. Yet, once again, the rug gets ripped out, and now I am not sure, if I will have to wait again. Hopefully it will not be for long, it really is the only sanity I have. Wishing you a blessed night night, full of happy dreams. Hoping your tomorrow is even better than today, thank you for taking the time to read this blog. Hopefully sleep will come to you, in a more timely fashion than it did for me! All my love to you, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Rainy Mondays!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 21, 2011 by dianaswonderworks


Well, today has been mostly cloudy here. Lots of clouds, there was a break for a while, sun shining, hints of summer. The clouds are back now. Confusing day for me, reality that time will come and go all too swiftly. I can only hope that, all things will be good, and I am able to make sure my part in this story is fulfilled.  Big changes are coming this I know, my living situation for now is good. The future however, is very tentative. Guess this is the test, can I prevail and not only keep hopes high, but knuckle down and let faith keep me. This is a time to make a conscious decision to not let things overwhelm or take over and let negative prevail. Lots of work staying positive when things go awry! So far, so good! There is so much to do here to prepare for the move. But, equally important will be making time to clear the air. Meditation and calming exercises should be invaluable, and mandatory most days. Funny how life always throws a curve ball, that requires more work!

Today has been busy. Still working on depleting my thread supply. Those big spools take up too much room. Making it into something will bring pleasure to whomever receives these gloves when I am done, and make lots of room for more important things. Having to store it all, puts things into proportion. Why store it if it is not a necessity? So, one project at a time, and keeping the spirits up, is the goal of the day! Probably the theme for the next few months, and with all luck no longer. With any good luck at all, I will not have to wait another minute, and be spared it this time. Been there once too many times already. If this is what it takes to get to the next level, I will go quietly, just hoping it will be the last time. A new beginning, and a brighter future makes it all worth while. Bring it on!

Now, no lottery updates today, no lottery drawings till later tonight. Hoping you are having a wonderful Monday, where ever you are! Keep your chin up and a smile on your face! Know this, some one loves you, sending my love to you and all you love, as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*
