On Thursday last week I was having a quiet afternoon at home, all I did was stitch, watch tv and write. In short a perfect day!
Then about 8 pm I figured it was time to go to the shop, so got all my stuff together and went to open the door, then I screamed (just a little bit, not like horror movie screams). Camped out infront of my door was a terrifying monster.
yup, that is a strand of my hair, clearly high currency in lizard land.
Yeah, I realize she doesn’t look that scary, but I hadn’t really expected her there. I tried to scare her out, but realized then that she wasn’t moving properly, she just used her front feet and her tail looked squashed. That’s how I got so close, keeps getting cuter doesn’t she. Little Lizzy
Anyway, I wasn’t sure what to do with her injured as she was. In the end I scooped her up on some paper and put her outside on the windowsill, I seem to remember hearing that lizards hybernate in the cold so maybe the heat would do her good.
So I left her outside, went to the shop and when I came back I checked in on her. She was still in the same place I left her, so I poked her a little and she ran up the wall, backfeet and tail working perfectly.
I think I’ll have to get the room temp higher if I want more visits, but then again I enjoy it nice and cool, and I don’t need any more shocks when faced with intruders 🙂
Told ya it was a thrilling adventure.
