It's Thursday and goatboy!, am I ever cheerful this week! Why? Well, I have a clean barn, of course! Even the Goatmother is cheerful about it. Mostly because it is done, but that is beside the point. Anyway, be sure to get yourself over to Planet Penny, here, so you can see why other people are cheerful this week. You might even want to join in. Who knows?
I do, however, have a few other reasons to be cheerful this week.
Reason No. 1 -
Reason No. 2 -
This reason is most amazing! In all my time here, we have never had a Christmas decoration. Well, we did have one the very first year, but it didn't last. There is a reason for that. One simple word. Ella. Being a long-legged Alpine, Ella feels it is her bounden duty to inspect and remove any object she deems inspectable, and she has the reach to go with it. I guess our first, and until now, only decoration was a little too inspectable and just a little too reachable. Which leads me to ...
... Reason No. 3 -
This has NOT yet noticed the new decoration. Let us hope it remains that way for the sake of all our Christmas cheer.
* Our thanks to Faith, whose cheerfulness about Christmas made the Goatmother feel guilty about we goats not having any Christmas cheer which, in turn, resulted in our lovely decoration. Thank you, Faith! (Or should we say "Diolch yn fawr iawn"?)
