Porch Work and Companions

Today I had a few meetings and mostly email responses for work so I took advantage of the fact that I didn’t need two computer monitors and worked from the porch.

A few weeks ago, a robin was busily making a nest in a bush right outside my porch window. Today, to my delight, I realized that a family was in it.

See the cute little bird? Would you guess it was sharing a nest with littles?

As I worked, I saw the parent flying back and forth feeding the little ones. My camera is not fantastic, but if you try really hard, you can see my treat.

What’s really neat is that our weather is not fantastic today. It’s raining and thundering and the wind is tossing that bush about a bit, but they are all snuggled in. Happy as not larks. Just happy as a robin singin’ its song 🙂

Makes me happy, too.

Inspirational Quote

It seems from the time my dogs are puppies they are continually trying to win my heart and I theirs. What a joyous relationship. Robert G. Wehle

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we did that with all humans, too?

  Imagine a culture where we were all trying hard to win each other over by enjoying life together and constantly trying to please each other without a selfish agenda. Lat year, I wrote about the amazingness of Wehle State Park. And I posted a picture recently from this place. It’s still a dream place, especially if you have a dog.
