Dragons

How do you appreciate a dragon?

Source
I'm reading a book It's book four in a series I've been reading for the last 30 days or so about an accidental heroine named Aisling Grey and her green dragon mate. It is one of the better series out there in my opinion. For certain sure each time I begin one I have a hard time putting it away until I finish it and that is always a good sign of a good book.

Book 1
I prefer my romances with a twist of fairie and very little porn and this series is perfect. But that is not the only way you can appreciate a dragon today. Yeah, I know another one of those but you see Checkiday is where I get my best ideas. Those special days just send me into freefall creativity and always give me ideas for things to do during the day. Like today has several subjects I will look up for the learning portion of my day including Prohibition and Religious Freedom. Usually, there is a food holiday as well which may interest me in experimenting in the kitchen.

OK got a little side-tracked there ... back to dragons

Reading about dragons either in fiction or non-fiction? is one way to celebrate the day. But you could also learn how to draw one, sew one or sculpt one.

If you need some ideas, instructions or patterns check out this Pinterest board: Dragons. BTW this Pinterest is just loaded with how-tos and upcycling ideas if you are interested in that sort of stuff.

Remember that food holiday I mentioned earlier well one of today's is Hot & Spicy Food. Sounds dragonish to me!

Definitely going to go see if I can find that! Not a fan of Spam but that sounds intriguing.

So how did you celebrate Dragon Day?

  1. At the ROM they have a poster of an armoured knight. The caption on it is "Dragon food in a tin" :)

  2. Irreverent as always dear. Dragons are intelligent and have magic which makes me wish they were real, I could use some intelligent conversation for a change.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Putting my best foot forward

Once a year I go get a hair cut. Tomorrow is that day.

Actually, for the last four, it has been a hair shave, that is every hair on my head was cut to an mm of its life. This year to celebrate my 59th year I decided to modify the cut a little as the hot flashes and the symptoms of menopause have been on the decline letting me hope I have finally entered Post-Menopause

I decided I was going to do some research on what kind of cut I wanted. Along the way, I learned a little bit of hairdresser speak.

I look carefully at Jamie Lee Curtis and Dame Judi Dench as they are the epitome of style for the older woman but while both cuts were interesting neither was what I wanted though Jamie Lee comes close.

I like the top layer it is short but longer than the sides so there is a little on top to play with and dress up plus it is still easy to take care of. For the sides and back, I want to go shorter. You see how the hair fades from the long top to the really short area around the ears this is w…
