I am addicted to online quizzes

You are The Magician

Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.

Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.

The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man – either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

And now we know what Tarot card I would be according to whatever site it was I was on… Oh and I just have to share!!! Lookie what Brandon bought me for my birthday!! This… oh, and this! Just thought I would share the lovelies!! Have a great day all. I am off to work out. I swear I will weigh less by Winter Solstice.

It’s been a long, long time…

ince the last time I posted on this thing. I’ve been trying to work on my new blog (http://imjustanotherlovelyenigma.blogspot.com/). Mostly it’s about my crafty-junk, but I find the blogs that delve into the personal realm to be the most enjoyable. Hopefully that’s what I can create for my own. However, I have not had much time to do anything lately. Brandon’s birthday was this past Sunday & my birthday is this coming up Saturday, so I don’t know where the time has gone, but I am going to be one year older & deeper in debt (Eerie Canal, anyone? anyone? ok, so I may be the only folk song dork). No really, I will just be one year older. But this Saturday, my dad & I will be making a rip-roaring “fun” trip up the Winchester to get my piano & stuff out of the storage unit (for which I have lost the key) before going to see my step-grandfather in the hospital. He’s having a heart catheterization (perhaps a stint as well, but they don’t know yet) tomorrow. He’s already had two triple-bypass surgeries, so the bypass option is not really an option anymore. But by the time we do all that, see my mother in Roanoke, & make it back to Radford to unload my stuff, it will be time to go over to Brandon’s family for our joint birthday party. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to fit it all in that day. I would love to stop by & see Samm, DJ & the kids, but I know it just won’t work that day. Hopefully, one day soon, I’ll be able to make it up to spend some time with my favorite family!! Well, I hope you all have a wonderful night & blessed be from your favorite long-lost almost 24-yr old.

**Also, I will miss Luciano Pavarotti. His voice was a gift I could not imagine having, and it’s influence will be sorely missed in my little vocal world***

Come one, come all!! To the greatest show in town. No, really it’s just some photos of recent objects. As I mentioned in the previous post, I have finished the knitting for my Ravenclaw house bag. And here it is, in all its Fair Isle goodness:

And a close-up. And no, I still haven’t attempted the blocking. Right now it’s being flattened out by my double-points. Still looks ok even without the finishing touches added. I have a beautiful leather purse handle I’ve been wanting to use, but it’s just a little too short for the size of this bag. Oh well, I’ll figure out some sort of strappy-thing to add on.

Lastly, this weekend is my birthday!!!! Yay, for 24. I feel like my life is just whizzing by, and I’m stuck on the side of the road w/ a busted tire (all the while knitting another scarf/purse). But for my birthday, I’ll be going up to Winchester, VA to rescue my piano from the storage unit it’s been trapped in for two years. I cannot wait!! My piano used to be my life; and I have not touched one in a very long time. I’m actually quite afraid to see how far my talent has degraded. But eventually I will build my finger strength & coordination back up. The next time you hear from me, I will be one piano richer & a much happier person 🙂

Love & light– Heather
