i happened to go into a pet store and saw this beautiful severe macaw. it wouldn't have anything to do with me and when i went near her she tried to bite me. a few days later my hubby and i were eating at a restaurant near the pet store and i persuaded my hubby to go in and see this beautiful macaw. it was love at first sight between the two and my hubby bought her on the spot. the next day after bringing her home and getting her settled into our home, Cori decided i was her mate and no one else. she allows my hubby to hold her but it is me she wants 24/7.

  Hi Cori
WOW! You look stunning!
We don't miss the northern MI weather but do miss our house and all the animals. Love the whippoorwills.
Today was a better day for my mom. She said I was a good nurse.
It started out sunny and warm but by the afternoon, we had severe t-storms and several downpours. Then of course it dried up and the sun was back, very Florida.
And, George gator is back in his pond my dad saw him .. all is well.

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Oh I get into things fast like that too!
Last night while we were doing our blogs the internet quit so I didn’t get to finish a lot of my blogs. Dad called the internet company today and they put us on another line but this has happened three times before too and its just a band aid on the fix and never lasts long. If we arent on then the band aid came off again and will be back as soon as possible LOL. This is my blog from yesterday : Today was another pretty day here. This morning mom was getting coats out of the closet in the hall and laying them on the chair. When mom gets a coat out of there I know she is going to go somewhere so I started to watch her really close. She had more then one I could tell that and she laid them on another chair. I went to investigate and mom said she was only going to wash them and hang them out to dry. Later she showed me them all hanging on the line out the window. I got a bath this morning. Then later we went out for my sunbath since it was such a nice warm day. Actually I got two sunbaths today cause we went out again before dinner. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Oh you look so beautiful!! I just love the dress. I probably should put my picture in the gallery since I won't use it for a profile until I'm done at the Kissing Booth.
It's been fun around here today. It's fun because I live with a dopey dog and a dopey cat! They are pure entertainment for me!hehehehehe
Merlin decided to sit on the arm of the sofa right next to my play cage. It's far enough away that I can't get him and if he sits still I don't really pay any attention to him. McKenzie brought a toy over for him but he's not interested in that! She brought her new one over for him and he didn't even look at it! McKenzie got on the sofa a sat down right next to him and knocked him off!hahahahahaha She leaned over against him until he went down! He was hissing! Hopefully they will both go to take naps very soon!
I hope you enjoy your day! Should you get bored, come on over. We can make some popcorn and watch the show!!!

  om got to pull into the driveway and garage to finish unloading the groceries.She helped put Nana's ice cream in the freezer while Nana made them a salad for lunch,it was after 4:30pm.After they ate Mom helped Nana finish loading her dishwasher and got it started for her before she left for home.The traffic was brutal and she had to wait at the end of Nana's street for a good ten minutes before someone stopped to let her out,the line of traffic was bumper to bumper all the way down 151.It was slow going home with all the cars and vehicles that are here now.It's the unofficial start of summer here and both the stores and the roads really show it.When Mom got home she started dads dinner,while dad unpacked the car,Mom put away the groceries and then cleaned our cages,dad had already given us our snacks.She finished the dinner dishes and now is able to sit with us and type out our notes.Mom is so tired and her feet hurt!She couldn't wait to take her shoes off!

  Hi Cori
This morning was a bright sunny morning with our highs for the day of 72 the lows of 57 and right now at 7:00pm its 72 but a breeze is blowing out there right now making it feel much cooler.Mom got dad off to work and then she collected all the rest of the trash and loaded them in the car.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Then she left us with our radio on and took off for Nana's.When she got there,she unloaded her car with trash and recyclables into Nana's car and then brought Nana's trash and recyclables out to the car,then Mom vacuumed Nana's whole house downstairs,Kitchen,living room,bedroom,bird room and hall and bathroom.Then Nana made breakfast for Mom and herself of two waffles and some tea.Mom called Verizon and got that stupid robot again who wanted to cancel the appointment and had to yell AGENT at her to get a human on the phone,and when she did they told Mom that they would be there between 3-7:00pm and that the problem was on the outside and that Mom didn't have to be there.They left after that for the dump and when they were there Mom realized that she had forgotten to take Nana's kitchen trash.From there they went to the bank and Nana realized she didn't have her handicap placard so they had to park in a regular spot.Nana kept looking while Mom went into the bank.Nana didn't find it.From there they went to Falmouth to Home Goods to look for some curtains for Nana's newly painted rooms but didn't find much of a selection there,so they went to Walmart where the had more curtains but no selection of colors or the style Nana wanted.Mom bought 3 bags of charcoal and a step stool and Nana bought a few things from there they went back to Mashpee to Stop&Shop where both Mom and Nana got Hood's Ice Cream on sale for $1.88 half gal.Mom got Frozen Yogurt and this time there were no limits on how many you could get so both Nana and Mom got 4 each.They even got a small container of maple bacon gelatto for $1.25.They each got a pizza for Saturday night dinner and Mom got lots of broccoli rabe with smoked provolone cheese for $1.89 among other bags of frozen meals that were on sale.Nana got some of the frozen bags of meals also.Mom got some chips for Dad's lunches that were on sale and several other things.From there they went back to Nana's house and when they came to Nana's driveway Mom had to park across the street in the field because Verizon was there in their truck.The Verizon lady got out of the truck to tell Nana that the problem was on the street somewhere and she thought it was the landscaping company a few doors down the street.Several other people were having the same problem.They had two trucks at Nana's house checking.Now they have to send out more workers to locate just where the problem is so they can fix it.They think someone cut the underground wires somewhere.Mom started to unload the groceries by running back and forth across the street and then when the Verizon truck left M

  My Sweet Coribell,
I sure hope you didn't make yourself sick from that butterfinger...I have to say I admire your skill at quietly getting into mom's candy drawer. My mom keeps her stash in the fridge, so no chance for birds.

Skin sis called at 5:45 a.m. to say that the babysitter was sick & so mom had to get over there by 8 to watch Charlie again. Thankfully, today was the last day of school for skin sis. She has to do teacher re-certification stuff, so mom may have to help out, but shouldn't be as often. Mom left about 11 or so & had to run errands & do some shopping. The week went quickly! No specific plans for the weekend here, just catching up--are your parronts doing anything special?

Love you lots,

Your Angelbird

  Hi Cori
Did you suffer any ill effects from the chocolate? My mom would have panicked, but it sounds like you are OK. Hope that's the case!

Mom went to the gym this morning, and she found out that Becky has given her 2 weeks notice. It works for Mom because Becky's last day at the gym is 6/9, and Mom's last prepaid session is on 6/8. Of course, Becky told Mom she planned it that way. Anyway she worked on Mom's shoulder, but she agrees with Mattea that a cortisone shot is needed. Mom lasted thru 40 minutes of zumba, which is a slight improvement, but she is hoping to get back to the full hour after the shot. Unfortunately doc is on vacation, so she won't be able to see him until 6/3. Guess she will just have to be careful till then.

Meanwhile it has finally gotten warm enough for a sunbath here, and I was out by 1:15 (silly mom insisted on showering first!), and we stayed out till it was time to come in and have lunch: chicken tamale with Spanish rice. I did not consider the tamale to be food, but boy did I ever chow down on that rice!

Finally I would like to remind everyone that we have a pic contest for the June Prom Milonga. The deadline to enter has been extended to 5/30, because we don't have enough entries. And I have it on good authority that if you need help with your pics, that Kaji and Dixie's moms would be happy to help. So get out those tuxes and prom dresses and pose for the camera!! And thank you to all the birdies who have been kind enough to already sign up. You can see their names on the Milonga Page #165848.

Wow, you sure gave mom a scare! Hope you're okay today.
Today mom posted some pics of animals at the center. She apologizes for the sideways downy woodpecker pic, it was right side up before it got here! Those are the babies that were in the tree on Saturday. The other pic is Cecilia, our resident barred owl with her foster baby. She's a first time foster mom, and she's doing great!
Mom cleaned the recovery room again today. The falcon has some pep in her step now! She's doing quite well. There is also a red tailed hawk in there who broke its beak. About half the top beak is missing, but we think with time, it will grow back. This bird might be a very long term resident, though. Mom put the raptors into carriers while she did their cages, and the poor hawk didn't want to get back out. Mom had to get the huge gloves back on to get it out of there and into its bigger cage. Usually birds want to get out of the small carriers!
There are 2 ducks, 2 turtles (the one with nail polish and another one), and the mom possum all in there too.
We had our pedicures today. I'd like to report that we were all good, but the boys both were screaming bloody murder! Millie and Lily remain the best of all, and I was even cooperative today. I hope you are having a great day. It's hot and sunny here for now, but showers are predicted for later. Mom is hoping that's true, because things could use more water than she gave them yesterday. She still has to move house plants outside for the summer, but probably will get that done today. I hope you get lots of well deserved attention, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

It has been so long since he heard those wonderful sounds of I Love You, and What's a'matter Chuck from Jenny and whistles of every variety from Ms LaLo! Dad can not thank Denise enough for all she has done for us, she is such a peach and what a human dynamo, thanks to her, our home is complete once again!

There are 4 phone numbers programmed into it, and one is our across the street neighbor man! Dad talked to him early this morning when he came to take our trash around to the alley! He told dad not to worry! Dad was up early getting things ready for Ms LaLo, it is a labor of pure love, and he is looking forward to a visit with our dear friend aunt Denise!

Sounds like you had a good outside time. maybe not as long as you would have liked. It's probably getting warmer up north for you. I've been lucky as I can go out most days but some are too hot for me. So, I can go early or sit in the front screened in area.
It was another beautiful FL day. I helped mom around the house. Then I tossed every toy on the floor for mom to pick up. Got to keep her moving. I think we will just hang out around the pool tomorrow.

Hope you can get outside again soon and stay out longer then too but good you got out today and got some of the nice weather and sunbath too.
This morning mom took the winter comfort and blanket to the Laundromat and washed them and then she bought them back home and hung them on the line. They are too big and heavy for our washer here at home. She did some cleaning in the back rooms and then we went outside for my sunbath. Mom put some of the summer decorations up outside and I supervised. There was an electric man came and changed the street light bulb out front on the big pole. It wasn’t burnt out but this one has a different color to it at night. I was glad when he was done and left with his noisy toys. Most of moms lawn decorations have solar lights on them so when it got dark enough mom and I looked at them out the window. “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Nana made both Mom and herself some tea and they had a little snack before Mom left to go home.The traffic is really picking up around here now and it takes Mom a good half hour or more just to drive the 15 minute drive from home to Nana's and back again.When Mom got home our dad had given us our snacks and Dad unpacked the car for Mom while she went in to see us and clean our cages out then she put the groceries away and pulled out some of the chicken pot pie she had made on Sunday that she froze into individual dishes for dad's dinner.We got to join them for dinner and Mom gave us some cherries she had bought the other day and were those cherries so good!Candida shared dad with some of his Chicken pot pie and we all got some peanut butter cookie from dad's dessert.Mom is so tired from a long day today and we are waiting to snuggle with her after she helps us get our notes out!

Oh don't you just love being outside and watching everything that comes and goes in and out of the yard?And doesn't the sun feel so good on your feathers and Oh how wonderful it is to have a shower outside and dry off in the sunshine!How awful that your daddy dropped that frying pan on his broken toes like that and to have your time outside cut short was just awful!But you're right about that at least you got 15 minutes,it was so nice here and we were locked up in our cages all day while Mom was out with Nana running errands.
This morning was a bright sunny morning a little cool to start with but did it ever warm up nicely!Our highs for the day were 76 with the lows of 53 and at 5:30pm its 73.Mom got dad off to work and then she came in and swept our room,cleaned our cages and gave us our bean mix.She gathered some pellets for our cousins who were out of them and brought them to Nana along with an onion she had needed.Then she got in the car and left us here as the painter is still there and Nana's house is utter chaos with everything everywhere.When Mom got there Nana couldn't even make them any tea or coffee because the painter was up on a really tall ladder painting Nana's kitchen a deep color lavendar.The kitchen was a total mess with a long tarp over the counters and things taken off the wall,clock,key holder,bill holder etc.Nana was very upset because the painter guy took things down from the wall in our cousins Bird Room and lost the screws to their over the sink light that Nana has for them.He never put the light back up.Then he wasn't going to do her stairway upstairs wall!He was sporting an attitude today.Mom and Nana left to run some errands and they went to Mashpee first to find some curtains for Nana in Marshall's but found nothing there for bedroom curtains,they went to Falmouth and went to Ocean State Job Lot and looked there but they didn't have anything in the way of curtains for a bedroom either.Mom got a 96 count Kcup box for my dad for work.Then as it was getting late and Nana never had any breakfast they decided to check out a restaurant in Mashpee so Mom drove back to Mashpee and they didn't find anything appetizing to them there so they wound up having a Fro Yo which was right next door.Then from there they went to Stop&Shop and both Mom and Nana got some things.Mom got a bag of apples marked down,a berry torte with fresh blueberries,strawberries,kiwi and raspberries and some french vanilla coffee creamer powder for my dad for work.Then they went back to Nana's house and the painter was still there finishing the kitchen.He was trying to find the key hanger that he took off and both Mom and Nana went all over the house looking for it and he had found it but never said a word to either Mom or Nana that he had found it.Mom went out back in Nana's yard and brought the tarp in that was covering her A/C unit all winter and got an errant clothes pin off the line that was keeping her clothesline from rolling the way it should.Then

  Hello Cori~
Hope you are having a great day! Nice around here so far. We have been getting a few things done around the house and watching House Hunters International. Very interesting!
Mom was on the phone with her sister for a long time and McKenzie does not like mom being on the phone. She has been crawling all over mom and barking! She is very annoying! Merlin is trying to get in on the action and wants to sit in moms lap! They are both so needy!!!
They finished the barriers on the street so now all that is left is line painting. It's suppose to rain over the weekend so they will probably get it done soon. It was fun to watch but I think everyone is glad that all those orange cones are gone.
Enjoy the rest of the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Well, Gloria is home and has a new radio. The old one could not be repaired, so they put in a new one (not Audi) and added an external component to do the smog stuff the old radio did. It was way cheaper than any other solution, so Mom is satisfied...now if she can just figure out the controls! She has managed to preset buttons for NPR and her two music stations. For more than that she will have to study the manual which is very confusing so far.

No sunbath today, since we are still in the upper 60s. However Mom and I shared a Chicken Poblano lunch, which has pasta so I am a happy boy.

She usually goes to the gym on Wednesday from 4-6, but since she still can't make it all the way thru a zumba class for the full hour, I am eggspecting her home early. Toesies crossed!

  My Sweet Coribell,
I hope dad's toes are okay. How painful! Mom hasn't gotten the screen porch ready yet. She has to remember to ask dad where the shop vac is. Skin daughter gave her a fuchsia (?) for Mother's Day that mom is trying to keep alive for the porch. The whole house needs scraping & painting & the parronts will be lucky to get even some of it done. The weather so far hasn't been with us. In the past, mom has taken us out on the porch slowly, because we are scared even to be outside.

Skin sis & Charlie (grand) have been sick. Mom was over last night & again this a.m., probably have to watch Charlie tomorrow, too. The work is piling up. It will wait. Yikes.

Love you Lots,

  Hi Cori
I hope dad's toes are okay!
Today mom had a fourth grade group for PA natural history. They were fantastic! She's a little biased, though. The second group was a bunch of first grade kids doing an animal tour. They had the attention span of goldfish, so it's a good thing they had 4 chaperones for the group. Mom finally gave up and just played I Spy with them in the dioramas of North American and African wildlife. They seemed to like that better.
Mom stopped back at the feed store to pick up the suet that got delivered yesterday afternoon. There was only one kind, and she usually buys a variety. She didn't care, just got 10 of the Nutty treats. Then she stopped for milk before finally making it home where she could change into shorts and a tank top. It's pretty hot outside; the car registered mid 80s and the deck thermometer registered high 70s. So after the blogs are done, I think mom will be out tending the new plants, watering them at least. I hope you are having a fine day today and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cori
I'm back! I missed mom but she had a good time at the bridal shower and site seeing. I found out that I'm honorary flowerbird girl. This is eggciting! Mom got home at 3am so has been moving slow today. She missed me and dad and our warm weather (88 to 90). It was in the 60's and low 70's in UT! Hope all is well with everybirdie.
Hugs

  Hello Cori~
I hope the day is going great! It was boring around here today but I enjoyed it. I spent time with mom while McKenzie and Merlin took naps. They take naps just about the same time everyday so mom and I can plan playtime!
The construction dudes are back and putting the barriers on the roads. They had 2 big trucks with the cement barriers on them. The put them down and then painted them yellow! They didn't finish the whole street so I imagine they will be back tomorrow. It was fun to watch them! After that all that is left is painting the lines. No more beeping trucks after that! Thank Goodness!!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Bet that bottle brush shrub will be pretty too!
Today was another busy day here. Mom says catching up on things left behind is rough but she is getting there. Its been cold here and mom usually has her plants out on the porch by now and her winter blankets off the bed and washed and put away and summer ones on. Mom decided today after she got back from getting a few groceries she would put her plants out so while mom was doing that I got my sunbath. She had the door on the house open and the plants are close to the door so I kept a close watch on things. She ended up throwing two of the plants out so we are two less LOL. Some just don’t survive winters in the house well or mom‘s Ungreen thumb LOL. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cori
Sounds like the new bush should have very happy toes!!

Well, Mom dropped Gloria off at the Car Doc this morning at 8AM. They will take her over the hill (to the San Fernando Valley, that is) to have them work on the radio. They assured Mom she will have her back late this afternoon. Sure hope they are right, because Mom has been going nuts without a radio. And she still has no idea how much this will cost!

Meanwhile she is stranded here with me! Yay! We will have a Lean Cuisine for lunch, as soon as she is done blogging. However this morning she made something called a Poke Cake, that Dixie's sweet Mama, Aunt Rose, sent her the directions for with pics and everything! It is mostly done and in the fridge setting up the pudding topping right now. She says I can have some whipped cream and peanuts, but since the cake is Devil's Food I can't have any. Now Dad says I am a little devil all the time, so shouldn't that entire cake be mine?

No sunbath, since it is still just barely 66 degrees outside, but the weather guessers are still calling for a warm up by Thursday or Friday. Sure hope they are right, because they show sunbathing weather for the entire week after that!

  Hi Cori
That was good that they delivered the bottle brush shrub and that your dad spent all that time digging out the hole,he certainly must've been exhausted after getting that all dug out!I'll bet in time that shrub will look just awesome!
This morning was a dull,dark,dismal,dreary sunless wet day with the highs of 60,the lows of 51 and right now its 56.Mom had tried for several hours to get on BC but we kept getting all these error messages and we couldn't even log on at all.We tried going through another birds page as they had the blog box to type in and when Mom did that and hit the add comment button it came back up with more cannot connect to remote hosts etc.So Mom just got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.She came back and tried again but no use.So she worked more on the chores in the house.Since we can't go outside today,we will be spending time inside.Mom is trying to catch us all up on our notes because BC took away all our blog time and Mom has to get everything done before skin bro comes to pick her up tonight to go looking at an in law apt in Centerville.Other than Mom working on chores its going to be another very boring day here but that's the kind of day we love,it keeps Mom home with us!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Cori!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  HI CORI !!!
Sure sounds like Dad did a good job in planting the new shurb and it probably does not like much as of yet..But in time it will look very nice...
Today so far it has been cloudy with peeks of the sun shinning through and the temps are suppose to reach in the 70s..Do not know if that will happen not unless the sun comes out completely...
Hope you are having a nice Tuesday....Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you, Sam :o)

  Hi Cori
With all that care, it should take and look good soon!
Yesterday mom planted everything else that was left. She thought she was done, but noticed that the guys who did the lawn weed whacked the Chinese Lanterns that she planted. She called Jeff to complain and he said he had more, and would bring them. Well, he brought three more plants, as well as snow peas, potatoes, tomatoes, apple mint, mustard greens, and cilantro! He and mom planted all that, and by last evening her neck and back were aching. It was a good time to plant, though, when there was help! Jeff also cleared out some of the day lilies so mom could plant the Asiatic lilies she got for Mother's day.
Today mom has a lunch with the pool ladies. I guess they'll all be talking about the pool opening on Saturday. She also has a bunch of errands, like getting more seed and suet which she didn't do yesterday, getting more fruits and veggies for us, and getting a mani/pedi if possible. Bree is coming on Friday to do our birdicures, so that's arranged.
Seems like summer is on the way! I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here this morning, so we're hoping it stays this way all day long. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hey Cori,
Those must be them wild bunnies huh?

We don't have those here. If we did see a bunny that would be someone's pet that got out of its cage. Hehehege

Mom called the clinic doctor today and they told her that the meds are still working in her system after finishing it for a week.

So by next week mom hopes that she is much much better. :)

Here's a vote for you.

Hugs,

Laka

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Well our company came and stayed and then left so we are back again. We sure did miss you all too and happy to get back online again! Mom was busy washing clothes and hung a few things out on the line and then she scrubbed the floors. It was foggy here this morning and then as the day wore on it kept getting warmer. Mom went to the store just for a few things we were low on and when she came back we went out to sit on the porch and I got my sunbath. We had a rain coming up and mom had to start dinner so we came back in the house. “We don’t meet people by accident.

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are having a great day! We are actually happy that it is Monday! I know that sounds crazy but it was not a good weekend. Way too much running around and things to get done. I like it when it's boring around here!
Today is boring so I am very happy. I've been busy ripping up the newspaper on the bottom of the play cage and watching the dog run around squeaking her toy. When the squeaker breaks in the toy she doesn't play with them anymore! I suppose it's just like when I destroy one of my toys!
They had a 5 mile back up on the freeway this morning because there was a duck family trying to cross. The troopers stopped the traffic and herded the duck over to the river. The freeway runs right along the Puyallup River. I am happy to report that mama duck and her ducklings are all safe and back at the river! Hope they stay there!
Enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Sweet Coribell
The new shrub sounds pretty. Deer resistant is good too. Are they around this year yet?

Mom is catching up from last week. She is doing our cages today & also called & talked to skinsis in OR for quite a while. Lots going on out there as the granddaughters finish up another year of school. They plan on a July visit & mom sure hopes it works out. For once, they won't be coming for a funeral, as has been happening the last couple of years.

Angel snuggles up to his dear Cori.

Love,

Your Angelbird

LOL, OH ITS FUNNY BUT I KNOW YOUR MOM DOESN'T THINK SO. THE DEER ARE GETTING WELL FED OFF YOUR PLANTS. MAYBE IF THE NEIGHBORS PLANTED SOME STUFF THEY COULD GET A WEL ROUNDED MEAL AND NOT EAT ALL OF YOUR MOM'S PLANTS.

MOM AND G-PA ARE GOING TO THE PLANT NURSERY SOMETIME THIS WEEK AND GET TOMATO PLANTS AND CUCUMBERS AND SOME FLOWERS. ITS GETTING WARMER SO THAT IS GOOD.

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT MONDAY

  Hi Cori
Nana realized just how much she would be going over her budget and between the painting and repairs being done in her house she just couldn't afford those hearing aides.She says she's gone this long without anything like that and its not like shes totally deaf!She's gonna call Verizon tomorrow morning(Monday)and hopefully they'll come right out for her,she can't keep running out to the kitchen for the landline corded phone.Mom is so afraid she'll be running for the phone and will fall again.
Oh your poor sweet Mom having gone through all that work only to have the deer eat everything she planted.That is so maddening when you try to beautify your yard and its eaten in minutes flat by deer!Too bad there wasn't a deer repellent like there is for bugs!
This morning was a dark dreary wet rainy morning and the highs will be 55 the lows of 52 and its 55 right now.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and fed us our bean mix and then she got dad his breakfast and coffee.She made dad his sandwiches for the week and then went through more clutter under the kitchen cabinet.Skin sis is supposed to come over after she gets out of work at noon today so the rest of Mom's day will be gone as far as getting things done.Other than that it will be another wonderful boring day for us here which is the kind of days we love!
UPDATE: Skin sis came over and Mom made homemade chicken pot pie and while she was waiting for it to bake in the oven Mom did a little more work on Dixie's new snuggle blanket.Then they had dinner and Skin sis wanted a haircut so Mom went out to the deck and gave her a haircut.It's quite cold out there now,the rain ended and late in the day the sun came out but the wind makes it feel so much colder.Skin sis stayed with us until 7:00pm then Mom cleaned up the kitchen and gave Skin sis a big container of Chicken Pot Pie to take home,and then quickly went upstairs to take a shower.Then she finished getting my dad's things ready for work tomorrow and cleaned out our cages.Now she's with us to take our dictation and get our notes done.
