Birthdays And Goodbyes!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

So, here we go again, hopefully for the last time. Moving can’t come any sooner for me! My birthday was on the 6th of this month and I had hoped for a wonderful day. Not saying I did not have a good time, just saying that it was more like a roller coaster ride than anything. A friend of mine ( not so much anymore) wanted to take me out for lunch. She come and picked me up, told me to get whatever I wanted, and then when the chack came acted alarmed about how much it was. Being the considerate friend I am, I offered to help, needless to say I paid for my lunch ( not in the budget, with moving pressing on my mind), Then she decided we should go to her favorite store where she proceeded to buy a cart full of clothes and other stuff and wanted me to loan her money to pay for it all! I put down the one thing I had in my hand, and she managed to cover everything, it just put a damper on the day for me. Once home I proceeded to tell my other friends and boyfriend ( who says we are broken up, but hasn’t acted in the least like we are), gets a text and I see a woman on his phone, when I said something, he pulled the phone away and tried to blow it off. Really!? So, strike two for my birthday. Later that evening, my sweet friend showed up and she took me out to eat and to a movie, on her, and brought me a card and an Ivy plant (very nice). My other friends bought the cake. So, to sum it up one person took my money, another took my heart and my real friends did what they could to salvage a really crazy birthday! To all my friends that texted me, commented on my sites and the ones who tried to make it a wonderful day, I say “Thank You!”!

Okay now on to other things. No big lottery jackpot just yet, I think I earned it this week though (to the supreme beings “Hello, it is really my turn!”), so I went and picked up my tickets today. Wish me luck! I have not painted in a few weeks or done any drawings. I am catching up on my reading, have to give the books back to my friends, before I move. My baby girl has been calling and she sounds good. My oldest daughter has also been calling and she sounds wonderful as ever. All in all, life is good, just a few hiccups!

Now, American Idol, wow, what a shocker! Not sure what to think of the votes for this week. I do realize all but one has to go, just real surprised that Pia went so quickly! It was a crazy show. But, I stick to my guns, many of these contestants will have major contracts and we will be seeing more of them. There are just too many good ones this time. So, to the remaining participants “Good Luck, and See You In The BIG TIME!)!

To all of you, hope life is giving as much as you need and hopefully more. I miss you all, and send my love to you and all the people you love, as always, diana

The Mermaid And The Bachelor!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 15, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

 

Well, Tuesday morning has  arrived and most of you know how things went on The Bachelor last night. Even if you have not been following, it is showing up on the news and tabloids all over the place. News coverage mostly today, but I saw it in the tabloids last week, that Brad and Emily were having problems. It kind of took the surprise out of who he was going to choose! Tabloids really are annoying. I will say this, I figured he would choose Emily for a long time. Lots of clues, he missed her when they were apart, and he became a real gentleman when she was with him. Just clues from some one who has seen a guy or two in love. Wishing them well, life is hard enough with all of the regular problems we all face, but with all the added stuff they need to overcome, an extra vote of confidence could be really useful.

Well, the mermaid portion of my blog today is the painting I did, actually weeks ago. Finally got it framed last week with the others. Silly me, for got to take a picture of this one. So, today is the unveiling of my mermaid painting! Hope you like it, it is very playful and colorful, she makes me smile! I did also start on my giraffe painting, and got it way done, but am still deciding what else I would like to do to it, I just feel like it needs something. Today will be all about figuring that out.

I have also been working on a dream journal. Not much progress there. Not because I have a lack of dreams, when I wake up, I don’t want to turn the lights on and all that to write it down. I may have to invest in a small recorder and speak into the recorder and write it down when I am awake. It has always been hard for me to wake up and then go right back to sleep. So, at three in the morning or whatever time it is I wake, a choice has to be made and sleep seems to be getting the upper hand! Go figure! I am curious what I can learn from my dreams, hopefully more about me and how my mind works.

The move is still progressing forward, and as time goes on it gets closer and more things to be done. I hope to get a jump start this week, by working on a yard sale. Lots to do, getting signs together, pricing things, digging out things to sell and advertising, blah, blah, blah! Wish me luck! By the way, no big lottery jackpot to claim yet, this week, but who knows maybe tonight is my night. I know I am quite ready! Hoping your week is off to a great start already! Wishing you all the good luck you can handle, and sending my love to you as always, diana

Spectacular Saturday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 12, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, the weekend is with us. My special delivery arrived as hoped. She came on Friday around lunchtime, and we have been busy visiting each other and meeting the new boyfriend. She looks as beautiful as ever, we got some paintings together she wanted, and got frames switched out yesterday. Now she is busy measuring the dresser she wanted to take home with her. I am so very happy to see her, and realize even more how much I miss my girls.

Funny thing today, we drove into Knoxville, on the way a funny thing happened. It was like I could breath again, the fresh air and the sunny sky, taunted my brain. It seemed to get in there and whisk away all the cobwebs. Suddenly as my mind cleared, a stranger thing happened, it felt like stone was falling off my body. Wings broke free from my back one and all of a sudden I felt like I could fly! Not in a crazy, get my meds way, but like this was the beginning of a new opportunity to fly. It wasn’t like I thought it, I felt like I could fly, in every way possible. All the things that seemed to hold me here, started to fall off of me, and I found myself saying goodbye to a town I love. A town I will miss, but a town that is now part of a different me. The new me is so ready to burst out, and venture out into a big huge world and see what adventures await me there!

She is finding things I forgot I had, a baby book, from her. She needs to take that too! So much is hers for the asking, and I hope she cherishes every bit of it. She now has a collection of paintings, I need to remove from my shops. There are also several things from the kitchen and crocheted projects that she has claimed. It is a pleasing sight to see her so excited about these things.

No big news on the lottery. I haven’t had a chance to watch American Idol yet this week, still on DVR. I noticed the tabloids have out all kinds of stuff on The Bachelor, apparently he is engaged to Emily. I will still enjoy seeing it all play out, I was thinking from the beginning, that she would be his choice. He was extremely attentive to her. That is usually a good sign.

Took pictures of the newest paintings, finally got them frames, so here they are! Hope you like them, one is for my girl, the one that is all broken up in pieces. I will add them this week to my shops online. I really think the next painting I do will be a fun Giraffe, I may even start it today! Everyone here seems so mellow and quiet, I might be able to play with my paints while they are here. So, off  of here I go, got some cooking to do, and then I think some painting. Have a wonderful Saturday, sending out my love to you as always, diana
