The Twelfth Night Dragon

I'm willing to bet that few people know that there is a Twelfth Night Dragon.  He landed in our tree this morning and is preparing to celebrate a quiet evening of merriment.

This is feast where traditionally roles are reversed.  Servants become lords and lords become the help.  In Westerly, R.I. there is a wonderful celebration put on by the Chorus of Westerly.  We will not be attending this year but will enjoy our own feast.  I'm not sure how we can do any role swapping.  Somehow I cannot see Winter, Aloysius and the other kitties serving us any food at all!


Old Christmas is past;
Twelfth tide is the last.
And we bid you adieu,
Great joy in the new!

This was my Christmas treat.  Robin Hopper is so generous with his  knowledge and information that anything he writes is a treat!  This is particularly enjoyable as he tells of his life as a potter and how he got where he is today. 


It's a little warmer today, 28F the last time I looked.  It's supposed to be 50 with rain tomorrow, then get down in the single digits by Tuesday.  We will stay warm and cozy in the house.  At those low temps I can't get my studio warm enough to work....so I've been doing some much needed cleaning in the house.

I'm making one of my slow rise breads.  It seems like a good time to do it as I have only been making Cuban and other quick breads lately.

Stay warm.....as always, thanks for stopping by............*s*

  1. Dearest Suzy,
    Lovely dragon and oh my if we had to live on those sporadic mice or once-a-year-fat-rat it would be tough to reverse roles!
    Let it continue the way we do now. Everyone is happy; even that dragon looks very snug.
    Hugs to you and stay warm!

    1. Hi Mariette.....I couldn't agree more....although I think there could be an amusing kids' story there.
      Are you experiencing this cold? Stay extra warm!

  2. Love the idea of role reversal. If you know any rich sorts looking to reverse things, I'm available.
    Hope it warms up soon so you can get back to work.

      I hope any plants that are in danger of freezing are well protected.
