Personality test

My Personality
Openness to Experience
You do not feel nervous in social situations, and have a good impression of what others think of you, however you feel strong cravings and urges that you have difficulty resisting. You tend to prefer short-term pleasures and rewards over long-term consequences. You have a generally cheerful disposition. You like the security of tradition, but sometimes have a desire to bend the rules and challenge conventional thinking. You will help others if they are in need. If people ask for too much of your time you feel that they are imposing on you, however you believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. You are guarded in new relationships and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth about yourself. Mostly you work towards achieving your best, although in some areas you are content just to get the job done.

Expensive Holiday!

So many of us are not blessed with exorbitant amounts of cash.  I wanted to create a list of gifts worth giving as well as receiving for the holiday season. With Christmas, Yule, New Years and endless Birthdays I hate maxing out my credit cards for gifts that Im never quite sure people will like or use. So here is my list of things worth getting and giving.

1) FUDGE! or any mixed basket of sweets. People tend to revolve around a basket of goodies. I like to make bulk amounts of rock candy, fudge, cookies, and then mix in some cheap glass candy dishes in a basket.  It looks pretty and inevitably someone will eat it!

2) Beaded crafts. Beads are cheap. It may take some time to get used to threading (youll only drop your string a few hundred times and swear twice as much!) I like getting a handmade necklace, even the ones I have that are not so pretty, still hang in my room, whether I wear them or not. They are a reminder of how much someone thought of me.

3) Time. Giving the gift of time is more valuable than you can ever know.  I am sometimes very hard to catch, so for me to set aside time even a few hours, for someone else is greatly appreciated. I did this with a dear friend whom I have spent little time with the last few months and I thought she was going to cry when I said "lets have a slumber party on the 29th, just you and I"  I to appreciate it when someone says "Hey I can move some things around, lets  try to do something fun" PS This especially works with significant others!

4) Services. If you have a gift/talent and are willing to share, you are my new best friend!  Can you sew? Can you clean, babysit or cut hair? Well offer it up! Give a voucher that states what service you are willing to offer or how much time you are willing to spend. Im a busy girl and not as talented in some areas as I would like to be. If you offer A service I could use, that would be fantastic! Im amazed at the people that come to me asking about little things I do in my home.."how did you do this?... I wish I could...." I tend to always say "I can teach you, or do one for you if you like"  It makes people giddy. I love it!

5) Write a letter. To often we let life pass us by without tellling people we love what makes them so special. Last year I could not for the life of me think of what to get my grandmother. This woman is responsible for raising me, guiding me on my paths, giving me knowledge and making me a better person. She has all the "things" she needs. I wrote a story called "The little Red Swingset" About her and I when I was little. All the imaginary adventures we went on, How she always let me rescue her and be the super hero. How she made me the strong independent woman I am, and how she continues her work as a saint by doing the same with my children. She cried, she hugged and she said, "I can t believe you remember all those things!" Sometimes people need to know how important they are to us. A letter is the perfect way to go. NOT AN EMAIL. Real paper, real pens, real sentiment!

6) Dinner. Offer to make dinner for a friend and there family. Or take a Sunday and make a double dinner one for your family and one for another. Take it over to their house, say I love you and Happy Holidays. Hand them the dinner and leave. This is sure to leave them speechless and grateful! Especially if they are busy people as many families are these days. 

7)  If all else fails, show up at their door yell surprise and wear a bow. (also great for the significant other ~wink~) Lets not forget, a gift is not always necessary. I would much rather have you in my life. As stated before, Im a busy girl, that doesnt mean I dont love you. Make time for the people you love and the ones that love you back, you will be surprised to learn sometimes that is gift enough. 

PS: just give out coal and tell your friends they were naughty! Smile and say "Sorry I got you into trouble again"

Isle of Avalon

Apples drench her well worn shores

Veiled in mists in times before

Ancient wisdom to explore

Lost to us in times of war

Often I wonder if I swore

Natures oath atop the Tor
