So I am a Magician

This is who I am according to the Tarot card link I get from EeKoon's blog. I'm not sure that I'm smooth talker, my wife said I'm too abrupt sometime LOL. And Cunning ? Interesting .....

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.

Yes I am proud of my works !

My Birthday Present

Yes, I'm a year older. Man, I'm getting away from the midway of that 70. Or rather closer to retirement. LOL Still along way to go. So what I got my self, well 2 more chatelaines !! Yes, I'm a big addict. Martina released Tuscany garden plus her 5 years anniversary medieval palace. Italy was one of my favourite country, and those building are just amazing. The second was chart was also specially as Martina will only release these in her class. Both of these are a year long class, but I'm not sure when I will finish these maybe after retirement which is nearly 30 more years. LOL

I haven't been stitching much last weeks. I did work on my Forest Goddess as per the sal. I need to take a picture for that. I've been building a DVD cabinet. I saw this on a TV show so I went and baught the magazine and build it. It took abit longer than I planned and finally it's finish and now house our DVDs. The finishing/lacquering was a bit rough but it works. I should take some pictures of this. I took my RR out again as it is May, and we were to post out this month.

I also have a new toy. Found out or realize that all my CC bills over the last many years have been collecting points and I never look into claiming it. Lucky they don't expire, and after browsing the catalogue, I decided to get an iPOD. It's wonderful. Now I'm storing all my CD collection onto it so I can carry them with me whenever I go. I can play all my music in the car too when I go for the long drive.
