I've been under the weather for a week now - ranging from good and sick, to just 'sorta blah and without energy'. Today was one of those days. I'm tired of sleeping :o), but don't have a lot of energy for much else. These days can lead to a melancholic shift that serves no good purpose. I bordered the shift for a while this afternoon, but at one point I got up, looked out my kitchen window and there were about 15 sparrows all dust bathing with enthusiasm. It brought a smile. I really love birds.
From there I went to the back room and looked out the big window to my little group of misfits and there was Domino, our new goat, dancing. Just because. Another smile. He is such a neat character. We got him from the neighbour, who had 'outgrown' him and since we had sheep, well it's obvious we could use a goat, right? I was skeptical, but he is a real sweetie. He likes to play. He likes to be scratched along the jaw and he's gentle with the little orphan lambs. He's won a spot, I think.
