This little guy flew in on the Arctic wind blast that gusted in yesterday. My boss thinks he's an Ice Dragon due to his coloration. I haven't gotten much out of this small dragon, mainly his name, which he says is Jarek. He does seem to be attracted to my earrings that I had laid on the table - they don't look too shiny here but the picture doesn't do them justice. When he first arrived he and I had a few problems. He twisted and turned and generally was a bit of a pain and wouldn't lay down, making me feel quite ambisinister. He finally settled down a bit when he saw my earrings. He looks to be a Flying Minor Norwegian Dragon, in shades just like Lizbeth #142 Turquoise Twist, as described and patterned by Anne Bruvold, though I haven't seen his type described yet. While trying to get information of where he's from he indicated that there may be one or two more dragons flying in soon. How exciting!Something not quite as exciting, but definitely intriguing, is Jane's TIAS. I still have absolutely no idea what it might be. I think Isdihara's suggestion to it being a skink is the closest so far, but that thought may easily be changed as we get closer to the end.
My version of the TIAS through day 7
I'm sure there are lot of you out there that are being effected by the really nasty, cold, icy, snowy weather that's happening on the eastern half of the United States. Here in Kansas, in the middle (where I am) we didn't get much in the way of ice and only a little snow, but the wind and cold are definitely letting us know it's winter. At 2:30 PM it's 7° F, wind gusts up to 44 miles per hour, creating a wind chill of -13° F: translates into, it's cold! I know there are places that have it much worse and/or will be getting it much worse, but it's still cold! Good news, my boss called a little bit ago to let me know they canceled work tonight - yeah! I don't have to get out in this! Whoopee!
I'm enjoying multiple cups of hot tea this Tatting Tea Tuesday, which are definitely helping me enjoy being inside instead of out! Now that my day has opened up I'm hoping to entice a few more dragons inside. Do you think if I raid my jewelry box they might show up faster?
"The Lenox Globe (in the collection of the New York Public Library) bears the phrase 'HC SVNT DRACONES' (i.e. ' hic sunt dracones ') on the eastern coast of Asia,
'Here Be Dragons!', they warned ".
