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…

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical My Fair Lady, a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play Pygmalion. In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a Cockney flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in Covent Garden and he agrees to give her elocution lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite.In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from:One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of May I procla…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Not sure where you stand? check out this checklist. This checklist and the other pdf's linked here are from the Women's Heart Foundation

Do you know what the prescription is to lower the risk factors? It's simple join the 10,000 steps a day club. That's it! walk 10 th…
