Nothing like a shot of vitamin B and a Hot Toddy to make one feel more in the holiday spirit. All kinds of spirits. My Christmas tree is up and lit if not decorated. And all the people I was going to ignore this year while feeling scroogie are back on the list and even have boxes in the mail.
I think finally having that damn salmon burn it's way completely out of my system has helped a lot. I really should just give up on any thought of normality and just give in to being senile and allergic to everything. I'll just be a nut living in my bubble, with goats.
By the way; don't put a plaid shirt on a white goat. They don't like it. Nellie was fine while she had one on, but as soon as she saw her kids in plaid she completely freaked. So goats like a flannel shirt but are particular about patterns. I found this out when it was 10 degrees. I was operating under the principle that if I was cold they must be. Not true. While they like a bucket of hot water in the morning, a coat is not really needed. I guess evolving in the Swiss mountains has some benefits.
