A most treasured friend once while reading an email listing all the birth sign attributes possible, suddenly realized that with my birthday being in January I was indeed a “Capricorn.” This sign was described has having two creatures in its category of “goat.” The sign of the high roller, Capricorn is regarded as the zodiacโ€™s top, but also quiet, life and business achievers. But, there are two very different types of Capricorns.

The first is represented by the mountain goat, always climbing higher and higher; never content until reaching the top. The second is the garden goat, with little adventurous spirit or ambition-happy to remain within a small domain, refusing to budge unless it is pushed.

Hence I became affectionately known as the “Garden Goat” and so here I am. I don’t really believe too much in these signs but what is written about Capricorns is amusing- “Capricorns make the best, strongest and most capable friends in the entire zodiac.”…if not…certainly the craziest…I am proud to say.

I live with 9 children (kids?) and yes all my own…same marriage…ect..etc..

For years everyone has told me that I should have my own show or at least write a book…like there is time for that! So as a tradeoff while waiting for yet another of laundry to dry…I thought I would try a blog-The Garden Goat Quote!
