I know, I said in my last post that I was a deprived goat. Maybe I was having a bad day. Sometimes, good things happen. Like today, for example, a good thing happened! My lady brought me peppermints! She went out for supper last week and she brought home the peppermints for me!
I was laying all by myself, in the middle of the yard, doing my best to look pathetic, in the hopes that she might take pity upon me, and it worked! See, here I am doing my "pity me" look.
Oh wait, it's too far away, I bet you can't see me. Here's a closer look. My lady's pictures are taken through the window pane. They do not show me at my best.
Anyway, I saw her, taking pictures, and I knew there had to be something in it for me...so here I am just starting to get up...
...and coming over to investigate, which of course means that Izzy the cat has to come too. Her name is really Esmeralda but my lady just calls her Izzy. In any case, Izzy is always a blur.
Look!!! A peppermint! For MEEEEE!!!!!
I was SO excited that I dropped my peppermint on the ground after chewing a piece out of it. Fortunately, my lady picked it up off the ground and gave it back to me. She said it was OK, because it was in the "5 second rule" but I don't know what that means.
I crunched my peppermints well, so that I would have nice fresh goat breath.
Hooray! I love peppermints, and I love my lady too, even if I don't have a goat castle yet.
I'm a Canadian who moved back to Nova Scotia after having lived in Iowa for nearly 9 years. I came back for reasons that disintegrated, and am now trying to rebuild from the ground up. I do my best to live in harmony with the world around me. This is a blog about life, adventure, and the pursuit of self-sufficiency, and ultimately, happiness.
This blog is the story of a woman, and her farm, and her critters, and her attempt to rebuild life after a fall. The blog was previously called "Whispering Acres" but that part of my life is in the past, as are the stories previously told. It was time for a new name, and it is time for a new chapter to life.
