Shirley MacLaine On Oprah!

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

Well, not sure if you saw it or not, but yesterday on Oprah, Shirley MacLaine was on. it was a very interesting show to see. I was fascinated by her views on so many things. I remember seeing her interviewing on Oprah many years ago, and I was not so interested in her views on reincarnation. After all the reading and self study I have been doing, reincarnation is definitely something I am interested in. My curiosity for alien contact here has always been something I have wondered about. Now, to be clear I am not running out to catch alien attention, or trying to the world is in danger. I am just saying I am aware that life outside of this planet exists and that is something I think about from time to time.

I have to say I really enjoyed her interview with Oprah and am thinking seriously about reading some of her books as part of my study into all things spiritual. It seems we have many things in common, and I am very happy to know that she has written about her experiences, so that people like me can compare notes.

Just received a phone call from a friend in need. She is having to deal with some serious medical problems with her husband. She called for advice and for me to do a card reading for her. It was amazing, she needed help with getting the doctors to understand her concerns and immediate help with some issues he is having. I did her cards for her, and was giving her recommendations, she started to pray and ask for help, when her other phone rang. The doctors called her back, and all arrangements were made to get him in to see some specialists this week! It was amazing how fast things came into order, she feels much better, I feel happier for her and I am thankful for being in a situation where I could see a miracle happen in minutes! So, my advice for today to all concerned, stay positive, ask for help when you need it, and visualize the situation happening the way you want it to. You never know how or when a prayer can be answered!

I have a lot to do today, and have to get running. Let me know if you have anything to say about this topic or any other you may have read about here. It is always good to get feedback and even better to help some one else who may be in a situation like yours to hear what you learned. We can all help each other with advice, by teaching and learning from our experiences! Lots of luck and love to you and yours today, sending my love to you as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

What Do March Showers Bring?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 9, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

The old poem goes “April showers, bring May flowers”,  just wondering what they thought of March showers. Are they just a precursor to April showers? My silly thought since I got up this morning is that silly poem, and reminding myself it isn’t April yet so it does not apply. I love spring, it is all about new beginnings for me, and one of the most restless times of the year for me. It seems no matter what year, in the spring there are always changes and deliberate one for sure. It is worse than cabin fever, it is a driving need to do something new, even if it is a hair cut, color, clothes, to a move, career change, just something.

This year seems promising, a major move, new job, and hopefully new career in art too. It is very exciting, and almost more than my brain can handle all at once, but I did say almost. It will be a wonderful new year for me, of that I am sure. Grabbing something new in the spring feels like a renewal, like a start over button, every year I feel this intense need to fix anything that seemed to not fill it’s greater purpose the year before. I do not believe in stagnating, and every spring I can look at my life and see what has not been working since the last spring. Out with the old, in with the new seems to be a good statement for me in the springtime. If it hasn’t improved my life in a year, than what are the odds it will the next. One year is a pretty good marker on how well something is working for you. If even slight improvements are noticed, that deserves another year, but stagnating or sliding backwards is not part of my plan.

Okay, so next, no word on a big lottery win for me. However, to any one who did win some or a lot of money, just a quick “YAY!”. I am very happy for you, good luck next time to all of you who did not win, hoping your minute is coming as well!

As far as work goes working on a painting for my youngest, she will be arriving in less than 48 hours, so I have lots to do, just to get ready for her visit. Today, is all about finishing projects for her. I am very excited! Getting ready to make some banana bread today too, and made some chicken and dumplings last night. so, she will eat well when she is here, she is also requesting eggs in a window (some call then eggs in a basket). Stay safe sweetie, see you soon!

Today, as you may well know is Ash Wednesday. If you celebrate this as part of your religion, hoping you have a blessed day! If you do not, send some love to those who do, for the religious aspects of our lives are important to each and every one of us.  No matter who you are, I am hoping you have a wonderful day, a day full of love, life and the pursuit of happiness! Sending out my love to you all, as always, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*


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!/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*
