It is time for Coffee Chat at Time Out for Mom, with Rory Bore. Each week, she gives us a topic for discussion. We write a post in response and then link up to her post. The topic this week is: “Tell about something that made you laugh recently.”
Animals never cease to amaze me. They often make me laugh. My own FurKids are always being silly with each other, with us, and sometimes totally on their own. Chloe Jo is a clown! But Nature also can be funny.
I have been watching the sparrows making nests. They have been carrying all kinds of things across the yard, including bits of fur, string, leaves and small twigs. They carry it all back to their little house. The pair really works together; it is amazing. It also makes me smile.
The robins are busy, too. The other morning I saw robin hunting in my yard. He would run across the grass, then stop and tilt his head. After a moment, he would do this again. After doing this several times, he found what he was looking for. He quickly dove into the grass and grabbed the end of a worm. The robin would pull and then pause, patiently working the worm out of the ground. Just as the robin got the worm was out of the ground, another robin swooped in and grabbed it right out of his mouth! I couldn’t believe it! After all of that work, he had nothing. He watched the other robin fly off with his worm. As I laughed, he actually turned to look at me. He didn’t think it was funny. I apologized, not that that mattered.
