I’ve been sad for a few days
I’m absorbent like that
Melancholy grabs my head
Sits on it like a gargoyle
I walked away from my gargoyle
Left it by the side of a dusty track
It will creep back
Comes looking for love
But for now
It’s a glorious morning!
Playing with stories for my Instagram
The cows – calves really – come running to join us on our walk – at least as far as they can and it makes me laugh
Maybe you need a smile too

Awww … taking the beasties for a walk, all of ’em! 😀
Oh that’s just the little group – there is another big herd that they are going towards – I love them they are so curious and gentle and funny – makes the dogs nervous when they rush us though 😂
Nothing like the great outdoors to chase away the blues. When I visited my mother in Ireland we were surrounded by cows. Had to make sure the gates were always closed when the farmers shooed them from one field to another.
Oh I bet that was lovely and green ..
I love cows! What a great way to forget about the gargoyle for a little while. 🙂
They are so funny – very entertaining
That’s beautiful. I would love to run a farm. How do you like it?
Oh no – we only have small acreage now – both my husband and I came from rural farming backgrounds – we have the cows now and then but it’s all very easy – no intensive farming or anything they just raise themselves a basically 😊
That’s really lovely. Do you raise them for the milk? I’m not sure if I entered farming if I’d ever really consider slaughtering the animals.
Those actually aren’t our cows – they are the neighbours – our block is too dry and we sold our steers earlier in the year – we weren’t supposed to get them and I had a bit of a melt down because I get really attached to them particularly being a small number and a small block and can’t bear to send them to sale – so…but of a sore issue there for awhile but no more now – I just get to enjoy the neighbours herd
That seems to be the best of both worlds.
It’s lovely to have the space!
It sounds desirable for sure.
Some days it feels like I have a herd of gargoyles on my head, what a delightful description.
Your posts have become a part of our nightly routine. I on my heating pad, smothered in CBD ointment for pain, red wine in hand, Jase and Cricket the cat puttering about while I read out loud. Welcome to the family! 🙂
Oh I love being part of your family – that’s so cool.
Should each cow have a name I wonder?
It’s not a good idea to name cows – I fall in love with all of ours and it leads to great sorrow when they are sold – hence I don’t think we will have any more because I’m pretty awful when I’m upset about something
