City Politics And Following A Dream!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 5, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, the yard sale is over! the original plan was to yard sale daily until, all my stuff was liquidated or it came time to pack to move. Apparently the city has other plans. Yesterday a man from the city came by to notify me that yard sales can only be done 3 days out of every month. Since this weekend was the first weekend of the month and moving isn’t for a couple of more weeks, no more yard sales for me! It amazes me, no matter what is on the books that in an economy as stressed as ours is here in the United States, that simple things that could make some people’s lives a little easier, become a major deal to a township!

So many people are trying to do the best they can to just make a buck, to pay a bill, buy something they need, or in my case just have gas money to move. You would think that there would be a little lei way to let people get by. It is not a crime, it isn’t hurting anyone, it really is of no consequence to anyone¬† at all. it is a shame, and anyone who is in the local governments should be supporting people who are trying to keep their homes, pay their bills and make ends meet. Surely, that time spent taking up my garage sale signs, and coming to my home could be much better used. Maybe that time could have gone to fixing a degrading road, or investigating meth labs or something that really has a negative impact on our society. It is a shocker, so with a horrendous storm approaching yesterday, we tore down the yard sale and I am hoping to do one last splurge at the flea market this weekend and donate the rest. I am done with it, my back is gone, lower and upper, I am in a lot of pain. No amount of money at this point is worth me being crippled for any amount of time. I still have loads of packing to do and then moving. So this chapter is coming to a close for me as well.

No lottery jack pot for me as yet, but I am confident it is on the way!

No new art in the works either, too busy with everything else. But, the itch is getting stronger, it is very likely that if I can get my back to calm down, that very soon I will do at least one more before I actually move. The stress is piling up, and it has no where to go, I am getting irritated and tired. So, getting my body back in shape would be a wonderful treat on many different levels. Hoping you are having a wonderful week, sending my love to all who are suffering at this time, and all who are not, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

And Soon It Begins!

Well, today was a long hot one at the art show, no one but me there, and dead as can be. No sales, obviously plus hot and sweaty. I am tired, still trying to debate if I have enough energy to eat something tonight. Hopefully tomorrow will be better, there are supposed to be several others out there as well ( I hope so). Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. The car shows will not be in town till next week or the week after, I am hoping to be able to go out there on those weekends. I also, have to plan doing a yard sale, very quickly, to liquidate some of my household items. Moving really is not fun, especially with no job, and at this time no car. It really has to get better! The next few weeks will be very busy. Have to find a job, move my stuff, into storage or another home or both, got to find those places first, yard sale and hopefully selling some stuff and artwork as well. The cash will be most welcome!

On another note, I have started a drawing of butterflies for the fund raiser our group is working on, it might take me all weekend to finish, but at least I have begun. It is starting out, kind of cool, and if I can pull off what I see in my head, it should be really nice, it is a big print 18″ x 24″, if memory is correct. Things are really quiet here, no one home but me, relaxing and soothing in a way. Very much looking forward to be past this struggle in my life, really excited to see where it will take me next. A little cautious, and maybe some trepidations, but happy and curious to see the finish line as well. Ready to go work on my drawing, it is hard to stay focused on writing with so much to do! I figure, I was given all this time off for a reason and need to rest up and get ready for the next phase. I will keep you posted and be happy to show the drawing as soon as I complete it.

On the lottery note, I checked my tickets on the way home and won $8, not the big win I was looking for. But, on the upside, it was enough money to play another week for free! Every little bit helps at his point in my life! Wish me luck this weekend, I really do need some good news to go with all the crazy news. I have been told I have windfall luck, in other words, all my luck comes at once. So, I figure with all the madness of not so good news, it is only fair that some really good news is on its way. If only to counteract all the other! Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend, and enjoying life to the fullest. All my love as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*
