Still Dreaming Of Africa!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 6, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Strange week, I seem obsessed with seeing Africa. I want to go and see the animals of the African plains with my own eyes, and be able to get close enough to touch them. All this to be able to paint them with clarity. This does not mean, that going to Hawaii is off the list, got to see and paint the flowers there. It seems to mean that the older I get the bigger my bucket list is getting! I guess, I better be really old when I die or really rich before I do, to make it all happen. Mostly this week has been a week full of great intentions, but my body seems a little stressed and craving rest. mentally the move and all that goes with it, seems to be draining me. Today is going better, there is a good possibility, that painting will be done today! That is good news, the unwind will be very welcome.

Feeling really good about life in general these days, not that it was bad, just now it seems to be much better. The circumstances are still spinning all around, it just seems lately that I have managed to stop my mind from reeling, and my feet are firmly on the ground. It is a good vantage point, from here I can see all the options so much more clearly. When my mind was spinning, it was all a blur, from here all it takes is to reach out my hand and grab what I want. It is like getting rid of vertigo, everything seems more balanced and safer, life is good!

Hoping you have had an opportunity to try the white light technique, it has done a lot for me. It may take a few days or weeks to get the effect you are looking for, but I do promise t is well worth the time! Life for me these days seems less out of control, and more enjoyable. Instead of things looking like problems, they more and more look like possibilities! It is very invigorating and exciting! Even though the bucket list seems to be getting bigger and my dreams more extravagant, it all seems so much more possible! I highly recommend you try it for yourself and really give it a fighting chance. Whatever your needs are, whether it be financial, physical, emotional or even romantic, let your mind have a chance to create the dream you always wanted. If you are a skeptic try anyway, or just keep tabs on me here and you can find out from my experience how well it is working. It cannot hurt to try, and it definitely won’t hurt you to be a voyeur into my life and see how it goes.

No big lottery win, but there is always another day! It seems some people have won over the weekend, the jackpots have dropped, so to all you winners, congratulations! I mean that from the bottom of my heart, and a little advice to you as well, do better than many before you. Get sound legal advice and even sounder financial advice, so the money will continue to bless you and others for many years to come! Good Luck! Hoping your weekend is full of fun and lots of love! In case it is not here is a smile from me to you, and lots of love from the bottom of my heart, diana

Finally Friday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 4, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well not sure how many of you watched last night, American Idol, I mean! What a crazy night kind of sad to see some of them go, and surprised by a couple that did! not that it is any thing different from any other time I have watched it. i will say this, it is a very talented bunch of people on there, and I have a feeling no matter who wins, a lot of these talents will move on to have wonderful careers. I am guessing there are quite a few talent scouts who can’t wait to get their hands on these singers. All we can do is watch and see, but I am confident in this. Hoping you enjoyed this as much as I did.

Spring is right here, just moments away, this is my favorite time of year. I feel so energized, ready to do a million things and not enough time to fill the wish list! This year is going to be exceptionally busy with the move thrown in, job hunting, home hunting and trying to keep up the momentum on getting my art sales going! Good news, I did sell something on my Zibbet account, Yay! Slowly. but surely, and one I day I hope that it is multiple sales in all my shops every day! One day, I can feel it in my bones, and a nice art gallery of my own to boot!

Okay, just a thought, would love to hear what you think about this. There has been a lot of TV time going into spiritual things of late. It is showing up on Oprah (of course), but even on a lot of reality TV programs and documentary style ones as well, it seems to pop up all around! Not sure if it is just the programming I am watching, but it seems that many people seem to be very excited about positive energy, white light and just in general seeking out the higher nature of themselves! For whatever reason, it does console me some on my own spiritual journey, nice to know that I am not alone, and that so many others are at least entertaining the thought of making themselves better and in the end the world better. That is hopeful for all of us who share this planet! Would love to hear what you think about all of this as well, so feel free to drop a note, even if you disagree. This is an open forum and all thoughts are up for discussion.

For those of you not so spiritually inclined, quick question. What is your general opinion on the skyrocketing gas prices! It seems overnight that gas sales are out of control. And if you know the system at all, that only means everything else will very shortly follow, postage, groceries, utilities, retail products and for sure economic car sales! Kind of rough considering most of the country is still reeling from the market drop a couple of years ago, and news flash our country is no where near out of debt. Just give me a shout out on what you think about all of that! I am confident no matter who you are, one of these topics strikes a cord with you. Would love to hear what you think, and I am sure I am not the only one! Hoping you are having a wonderful Friday, sending my love to you and yours as always, diana

Switching Gears!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 3, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

You were missed yesterday. Been trying to give my wrist a break, after all the intense crocheting I have been working on. Because of this my carpal tunnel starting giving me trouble. So, my wrist has been spending some time in a wrist brace, which makes for slow typing and minimal everything else. Today, the goal was to paint, but with errands and phone calls, time seems to have flown away. This does not mean that painting is out of the question, it means that if painting is to be done, it could be a long night! Feeling like a jungle is erupting out of my brain. After watching The Bachelor the other night and getting such a refresher on Africa, I started missing Giraffes and Elephants. So, could be a theme for this minute, wish me luck!

No big lottery win last night and there is not a drawing tonight. All that kind of news will have to wait until tomorrow. I am still hopeful, good things to come for sure. Lots of talk about the move with friends which has been part of the reason for so much phone time lately. Some friends are calling to catch up things, or missing me already, or just calling working out the details of the move. It is a big deal, it is over 1000 miles from here and a very different place than I have ever been, but it is also, because of the same reasons, that this is really exciting! Lots of little ducks to arrange, and they are running all over the place. My job is to catch them all and get them all lined up in a row. Good visual, huh? The two month countdown has begun, and I am feeling the pressure to get things rolling. With any luck at all, this will be a huge success!

Okay, and since tonight is a big voting night, I have one question for you. If you are watching American Idol (I am because, I love that Steven Tyler is on this season), how are you feeling about the big votes this week? If you have a favorite, please do share, I am sure many other people have opinions of their own, and maybe we can have a nice forum here. It would be really nice just to see what peoples thoughts are at this point in the competition. So, please feel free to let us know what you think, I promise to respond and let you know you are not alone. For all who read, please feel free to drop a note anytime at all, would love to read your response and to reply as well. Hoping you are having a wonderful day! Sending out my love to you as always, diana

Sending Love To A Friend!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 1, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, hope you are all having a wonderful day! Today, just as a re-cap of yesterday, I think I mentioned the storms and the weather outlook here. There were lots of tornado watches, and flood advisories and lots of rain and stormy weather. One a happy note, everything in my neck of the woods is fine. However, just got a call from one of my best friends, her luck was not so good.

Her home is in a lower lying area, that is fairly out in the back areas of town. With the massive amounts of rainfall yesterday, compounded by the fact the most of it drained onto her yard, she is having big problems. At this point I am not sure how big, since she could not even go home yesterday, her yard is a lake right now, and I do not believe I am exaggerating it either. It was so deep last night, that her pet goat drowned, and neighbors had to band together to get the horse up to dryer land ( it was on the news last night), this is how she found out how bad it was at her home.

She works at a hotel in town and had gone home only to realize that her driveway was flooded, so she stayed at the hotel last night. At about eleven pm, she received a call from a neighbor letting her know she was on the news and that her goat had drowned. Not exactly  the way to round off the day, she was heart broken. She is going home today to see if the water has receded, and to investigate the breadth of the problem. She has been having financial issues already, just paid off a riding lawn mower, and took out a loan for transmission and motor parts to repair her truck. They were being stored in a shed on the property, and she is concerned, that with the water so high it may have damaged or ruined all her equipment, and truck parts.

So, for me, I am sending love and prayers her way, wish I had some money to help, but I too am broke. So, all I am asking is that if you can spare the time to say a prayer, or send some happy thoughts, kind wishes or anything you feel you can to make her day. I am positive she would be very appreciative. I too, am thanking you in advance for your thoughtfulness.

Now, guess you figured out I did not win the lottery or I would be helping my friend any way I could today. So, I can only pray tonight I fair better, would love to make sure she could at least replace what she lost, it would mean the world to her. She works very hard and has been through some really tough times. As for you, I am hoping from the bottom of my heart that you did not suffer from anything so heart wrenching yesterday or today. If you have please do let me know, I will surely send out extra love to you and your family as well. For now, sending my love to you as always, diana

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

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

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
