Here’s a great post from Anne which reminds us that no matter what our struggle there are others struggling too but if we try we can help each other and make it through.

The Grumpy Old King #Journal

AUGUST 13, 2020.


The day began for me at half past 5 this early morning. After being awake so late the night before due to my need to see a book through to its end I found it quite annoying, but try as I might, going back to sleep just wasn’t in the cards.

Reluctant to leave my comfy nest, with Campbell snoring snuggly by my side, I stayed until I could be comfortable in bed no more.

Once up I found that I was struck with a desperate craving for a strong, hot cup of coffee. It seemed as if I could smell it in the air. It was all I could do to make myself wash my face, brush teeth and hair and have a bottle of water. I knew I must do it for to lose the routine would indeed derail the entire day.

When I’d finally accomplished the morning’s routine, which also included squats, crunches, and stretches, I celebrated with an exuberant cheer which brought a disgruntled King Campbell bumbling into the kitchen to see what the fuss was about and if it might involve food.

Upon learning there was no food to be had he gave a mighty sneeze and rather harsh jingly jangly shake and went stomping off to his room where I heard him thump down with a loud sigh of disgust.

“King Campbell!” I called, continuing with my exuberant joy, “I’m sorry I troubled his majesty. Please do go back to sleep.”

“Woof!” was his only reply.

Once coffee was to hand and I was comfortably curled in my recliner I began the task of going through all my notifications and answering those which I deemed most important and saving those I believed could wait.

When my cup was empty and notifications were sorted, I set about the task of motivating the old king for his morning walk.

Soon, we were out in the yard but once his majesty had done his business and checked all the corners of the yard, he led me back to the front steps and demanded to be let back inside.

“Gees! You’re grumpy this morning.” I stated as I allowed him back into the house.

“Sneeze. Shake. Stomp.” Was his reply.

“Fine!” I declared. I’ll fix your breakfast and you may go back to bed.”

When he was settled on his throne, I went back to my coffee and began the work for the day.

Now, here it is just before sundown, I’ve a full belly and a cold beer waiting in the wings.

I’ve accomplished quite a bit this day but there is more yet to do.

I’m off to open a beer and see what the evening may hold.

Until next time this is Patty who is enjoying a sliver of sunshine which is peeping through the clouds, and the grumpy old king who is snoring mightily on his throne saying…

May harmony find you and blessid be.

Dreaming Stones: Sleepers…

France & Vincent

After our second night sleeping in the cavernous car, we woke to a pale, opalescent sky over the stones of Callanish. Considering how many decades we had wanted to visit the site, it was a wonderful way to wake. It was also odd that neither of us felt the need to return to the stones. At least not on this trip. We felt that we had done what we had been called to do… whatever that was. At that point, we were still travelling blind and taking each moment on trust.

The café with the alpacas would not open for several hours, so there was no point in lingering… coffee would have to wait, we had enough supplies for a meagre breakfast and we had an island to explore before the afternoon ferry would carry us back over the sea to Skye.

We had seen the sign for another stone…

Thumpity! Thumpity! Thump!

Home of the Campbell Kingdom

Good morning everyone!

Here we are again on yet another Thursday, or as I call it Thor’s Day!

Anyhow, whatever you call it, it seems to me the week gets gone before I’ve hardly begun.

This week, I’ve had many small projects to tend to and though it feels like I accomplished little, I got a lot done.

What have you all been up to lately?

This morning, I’m doing a load of laundry. That’s something else that seems to pile up more than usual. Because it’s hot, even though I run the air, towels seem to sour easier and so I must do laundry more frequently.

So, when I put the load from the washer into the dryer suddenly the house was filled with, Thumpity, Thumpity, Thump!

“What on earth?” I wondered to the air as I hurried back to the dryer. To my surprise, when I opened it, Campbell’s tennis ball came bouncing out. He, evidently feeling better than he did yesterday, having come hard on my heels to see what monster was lurking in the dryer was delighted, and picking it up off the floor began insisting to play.

Never a dull moment in the Campbell Kingdom.

King Campbell

I’ve no idea how that ball got into the dryer. All I can figure is that it got mixed in with the pile of dirties on the floor.


Yawl have a great day!

Food For Thought

We all are the Light, automatically. So we really don’t have to go too much further than that. We all have a Light within us – it is the Soul; it is that spark of God, of the Divine, that activates our consciousness.

Photo prompt round-up: Fantasy #writephoto

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Manifested dream

The shores of reality

Painted in pastels

Masked facade of fantasy

Reveals the dreamer’s laughter


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Portmeirion, Wales, during one of our summer workshop weekends a few years ago.

Portmeirion is the strange and colourful village created by the architect and conservationist, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Tucked away on the Welsh coast, at first glance it resembles a picture-postcard Italian village, and yet all is not what it seems… and many things are far more than they seem.

Williams-Ellis sought to bring humankind and Nature together, illustrating with his architecture the ideal and harmonious relationship that should exist between us. Many of the buildings and statuary are recycled from other, far-flung places…and, if you get there before the crowds and have the place to yourself, it is a place so full of tantalising mysteries that a single visit could…
