I was on the floor of Pottsee's Exotics, a very nice bird store in Bellflower, California. I was in a small cage when I saw two people walk in. The lady sat down and looked down and noticed me and asked the shop owner what kind of bird I was and he told her that I am a Cinnamon Green-Cheeked Conure and I'm not very common.
Then a man came over and the owner's wife put me on his hand. I just sat there, looking around, not too sure what to do. The man handed me to the lady and she held me for a while and then put me on a stand.
Well, I saw my chance and launched myself off the stand and climbed up the book racks. The owner's wife had to get me down. But she gave me back to the man and he talked to me real quietly for a while.
Well, that was all she wrote. I went home with my new mom and dad and now I'm part of the La Habra flock.

Hi! My name is GINGER **Praying for Panther's mom**

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from La Habra, CA.

Ginger Bird, Gin-Gin, Buzz-Saw. Buzzy, Feathered Beaver.

6 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Tropical fruit treat sticks, Apples. Anything made of wood. Dad's nose.

On the top of her cage or on top of her neighbors cages.

Anything strange that is brought into my field of view.

They talk to me and let me sit in the living room with them and watch TV. That's kind of cool. I also have lots of wooden toys.

Every time her water is changed, she takes a bath in it. Anything made of wood has a very short life span.
She also serves as the La Habra flock's "Early Warning" system. Anytime she sees or hears something that she feels is a threat, which is just about everything, she sounds the "Alarm".

Every water cup is a bath tub..

  Hi Ginger
We had that problem the other day with BC and not being able to even log on til late in the day.Its very frustrating and even now we are still getting the timed out pages and error pages every now and then.
This morning was a bright sunny and warm morning with the highs for the day of 74 the lows of 59 and right now its 79.Mom and all of us are loving this heat and sunshine!After Dad left for work Mom put some things away and then got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix and swept our room.Then she collected the recyclables and loaded them in her car for tomorrow and got most of the trash ready to go and got that out in the garage.Mom will be home with us all day working on as many chores as she can get done and she promises to take us all out for some sunshine and showers later on.We are all loving this warm weather and Mom opened all our windows to let the fresh air come through the house and it really feels so good.She's hoping that once she shut both heat boxes off that she won't have to use them again til next fall!Other than that and it being a boring day here which is wonderful news to us,we are happy to have Mom home with us all day!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses for sweet Ginger!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hey Ginger,
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.

Laka

That sounds like it would be an awesome take in to stand on the top of the Signal Hill and overlook all over Southern California.Oh would Mom and I love to see those pictures that your sweet Papa John took of everything!It sure sounds like they had such a wonderful day out together and enjoyed an early dinner at the Belmont Brewing Company too!But to get stuck again in the Gay Pride Festival after they've already done it once already?Its good that they finally got home to you and I'm with you,we too would've given our parronts a piece of our minds if they stayed out late especially for two days in a row!
This morning was a bright and sunny morning with the highs for the day of 63 the lows of 51 and right now its 66.Mom got us up after she got dad off to work and cleaned our cages and fed us our bean mix then swept our room.After she put some things away from yesterday she decided to work on more chores and is hoping to take us all outside to get some sunshine if its warm enough for us to go out today.Mom is going to clean the bathrooms and vacuum the whole downstairs as she couldn't do that yesterday.Other than Mom being home with us all day its going to be a boring day here.Which is just fine with us!

WELCOME BACK!
We sure did miss you so much!What a pain in the tail feathers that had to have been having Windows 10 loading without anyone's approval or consent!And how awful to have it come back again the next day.Mom has heard so many upsetting things about Windows and we're so glad we have a Mac which doesn't have those kinds of problems!
Your poor sweet Daddy with his leg still bothering him.If it looks better than why doesn't it feel any better?Our good thoughts and prayers go out to him constantly for peace from the pain and complete healing for his leg.
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.

Mom is so frustrated with these drs also as they have just dismissed our Nana who is in severe pain each and everyday,with no more follow up visits,not even anyone caring if she has any help for the pain she's in.They even took away her PT sessions that were really beginning to help with her balance.We are so praying that Papa John will be able to start feeling better and that the drs will realize he needs to be on the antibiotics longer than 12 days and that he may need a stronger dose to help the situation with his bad leg improve sooner than it has been doing!
This morning was another bright warm sunny day with our highs for the day to be 65 the lows of 47 and right now its 65.Mom got our dad off to work and then she got us up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Then she collected all the trash and got it out to the garage and then worked on getting the recyclables together and in the car.Mom is home with us all day today and is going to work on getting more chores done and more things taken out to the dump and donation centers.There is just way too much stuff still in the house that needs to be gotten rid of and it seems like an ongoing process,Mom is still waiting on skin sis to get the rest of her things and skin bro to get his things moved out.Other than Mom working on chores all day its going to be another boring day for us but Mom promises that she'll take a break later on in the afternoon and get us all out on the deck to enjoy some sunshine.We missed out yesterday as she was gone all day and came home too late.Maybe it will be warm enough for us to have a nice shower out there so we can dry off in the sunshine!Not much to talk about today but we're just happy to have a nice boring day at home with Mom!

  Hey Ginger,
mom couldn't sleep well last night as she forgot her phone at work and wasn't about to drive and get it.

That's why she couldn't do blogs and was just beside herself!

But I did get more scritches and cuddle time, so good for me. :)

It was a hot day today 82 degrees! But at least there was some trade winds blowing so it wasn't that bad.

Hope you got some good head scritches too.

Here's a vote for you.

Hope your hump day was good.

Hugs,

Laka

This morning dawned a bright sunny day with the highs for the day of 60 the lows of 42 and right now its 57.Mom got dad off to work and then she got us up and did our room service and gave us our bean mix.She vacuumed the house and then began working on more chores that needed to be finished.It's going to be another uneventful day here with nothing of interest going on.We are happy about that as you know as it keeps Mom home with us all day.Maybe we'll get to go outside and enjoy the warm sunshine again today if it warms up enough for us!

  Hi Ginger
here I go with more BC problems!Mom typed out four long blogs and one of them was for you and then BC gave the slow cycling over and over and then up pops the timed out and then the error pages.Then when we finally got to get back to my own page all I got was blogs from two days ago and none from today!Oh is this so frustrating as it too two and a half hours from our blog time.Please forgive us for being quick today as we don't want to lose anymore time trying to get our blogs out.Gotta fly with it while BC is deciding to let us go.Mom had to spend time deleting 5 blogs of the same thing on each birdie's pages when BC finally came back.GRRRRRRHHHHH!
This morning was a beautiful bright sunny day here with the highs for the day of 61 the lows of 46 and right now its a glorious 63 out there,a bit windy but who cares as long as its warm and sunny after all that rain we had.Mom got dad off to work and then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and then we got our bean mix.Mom then scrubbed both bathrooms and beat out the area rugs and left them out on the deck rails to get some sun and air and watered the plants and vacuumed the whole downstairs.More flowers are coming up in the flower garden and Mom found one bleeding heart plant,she's hoping that the other three plants will show up soon she had.There are tulips in all colors popping up and the Irises'are budding also.Its a nice quiet day here with Mom,even though she's going to be busy working around the house!To us that's a perfect day,and if the sun stays warm on the deck and the wind isn't too bad we may be able to get out in the sunshine!Now wouldn't that be awesome!
UPDATE:Mom finally took us outside to enjoy the warm sunshine,but for the wind it was just what we've been waiting for so long!The wind kept blowing Mom's flip flops off the deck and making our cage papers blow up at us so we were having to hang on the bars of the cage.No showers for us as it was still too windy!But we can't complain,the sun felt so nice on our feathers,we got to stay out for an hour until our dad came home and then it started to get cold again!We can't wait to go outside again tomorrow!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL BIRDIE MOM'S AND HUMAN KIDS MOM'S TOO!
This morning was a bright sunny morning and then the clouds rolled in and now its on the dull dark looking like rain day.The highs for the day 56 the lows will be 48.Its 49 right now.Mom got us all up and cleaned our room and cages and fed us our bean mix then she got dad his cinnamon raisin toast and coffee.Then Mom gave us our birdie cures and Dixie got his beak dremeled and nails done while Candida just got her nails done.Peepers and Celine will be coming over soon with skin sis and they will be getting their nails and Celine will be getting her beak done also.Dixie got to have some very berry pie for a reward for having everything done to him and Mom weighed us all after we were done.Dixie is still at 66 grams,Candida gained and she's at 68 grams.Skin sis wants to bake with Mom but Mom isn't sure just how much baking she'll be doing.So far its a nice quiet day here but that will change as soon as skin sis gets here.It poured heavy here for awhile and then late in the afternoon the sun came out really nicely.A squirrel and his buddy were constantly at our bird feeder on the deck and spilling the seed all over the place.They broke our other good feeder and now Mom is hoping that they don't wreck this one.
UPDATE:Skin sis came over and Mom did birdie cures and did Peepers and Celine's nails.Mom and Skin sis baked,skin sis made a strawberry Crush poke cake while Mom made a pumpkin pecan cake.Mom cleaned up the baking pans,skin sis washed some and then while they were waiting for the poke cake to get cool,Mom ran around and got some chores done.Skin sis stayed til 6:30pm and then Mom quickly went upstairs to take a shower and then came down to make dinner for our dad.After Mom cleaned up after that she cleaned our cages out for the night and finally is getting to sit down and help us get our notes out.Candida was out all afternoon and now she's complaining because she has to wait in the cage til Mom can come and get us out to snuggle.

Mom had some good friends that used to live seven houses down from us and they moved to Colorado years ago when their kids were still little,they were avid skiers and their kids were also even when they were so small.They now live in Colorado Springs.Mom hasn't heard from them in years,at first it was postcards and phone calls and then Christmas cards and now nothing at all.Once in a while they would come and visit when they were back down here to visit family.Nana and our Papa went to California and went to Knott's Berry Farm and ate there also.How awesome that Jim and Papa John used to work together as ambulance drivers and security guards in the 60's and 70's,that is quite an awesome friendship that has lasted through the years.I'll bet Jim and Kathy really loved seeing all of you though!I think its us fids that really make someone's visit much more enjoyable than it would be if they never got to see us!
This morning was another dull grey day here with the highs for the day of 57 the lows of 46 and right now its 50 and quite cloudy.We'll be lucky if we see it go any higher.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she got dad his breakfast of blueberry pancakes and coffee and seeing as its Saturday and she doesn't have to run out of the house,she's taking it slowly getting the chores done.Its another uneventful day here with nothing of interest going on.But that's okay as it keeps Mom home with us all day and night.

We woke up to another cold,very windy, dark,dismal,dreary rainy day again.The highs for the day will be 49,the lows of 44 and right now its 45 and pouring rain.Mom went to the mailbox to put some bills out and she got soaked.After she got our dad off to work,she started cleaning up and collecting the recyclables to put in the car and the downstairs trash together to take to the dump tomorrow.She's still gathering more junk to load the car up with to take from her on going cleaning projects of all the empty rooms that are still holding stuff from both skin sibs.She's hoping that one day soon she'll have it all gone and the rooms tidied up and no more junk.She still has to get to the TV room and finish cleaning out all the built in bookshelves from all the old VCR movies that skin sis left behind.Mom has so many more books and old school books from the skin sibs that need to go out also and lots of magazines that skin sis keeps bringing over for Mom to read.Mom had an interrupted day as skin bro called to tell her he was on the deck so she ran and opened the door for him and he finally got a hold of the manager from the $250.00 apt that included everything and that was a joke!Skin bro got an appointment to see it at noon time and he IM'd Mom and told her it was a motel!Mom asked him was it the Casa Del Sol and he wanted to know how she knew!Its run by Jamaicans and they told him it was a rental of the rooms there and it was payable by the week!He had other rooms available for $333.00 a week and some for $800.00.Man,those ads can be so misleading!So as you can imagine skin bro said no thanks and now as we speak he's looking at a place in Sandwich for $800.00 a month.Mom is waiting to hear from him on that one.Then skin sis called and wanted to take Mom out for Mother's day today as the weekend is kind of up in the air right now but Mom didn't feel like going out in the pouring rain again.She had enough of that yesterday.Besides she needs to stay home and get some of these chores done before our dad gets home.Then our dad called to tell Mom that one of the ladies he works with in the office was celebrating Cinco de Mayo and brought in all these Cinco de Mayo foods for all the guys to enjoy.He told Mom he ate so much of it and he's so full.So Mom will just save his lunch for tomorrow.Mom cleaned our cages and our room and then fed us our bean mix,she forgot to put our radio on and Candida had to scream loudly for Mom to come back in and put it on for us.Mom is going to try and get the bathrooms done today if time permits and other than working on the chores its going to be another boring day here for us!We are happy about that at least Mom is home with us all day and not running off somewhere!
I've been having BC problems all morning and now over three hours have been wasted trying to get my notes done.Besides the constant cycling and the URL Error Page and the timed out pages and not even being able to get to my own pages its become very frustratin

  Hi Ginger,
I want to thank you for your votes for me in the quest to get my BOTM Badge.

It's just not fair as I had worked so hard through out the whole month campaigning. Only to find out that the BC was not fixing the site.

Perhaps with every birdies help me and the others like Kacey and Mikey will get our recognition like we should have.

A big Mahalo to everyone for their love and support. The things we birdies hafta do to get things done.

Here's a vote for you as well my sweet friend.

Love,

Laka

Mom sure knows what that's like whenever you have company there's never any time for being at the computer and leisurely chatting with our friends!We can imagine that your sweet Parronts will be off and running showing the company the town and all the greyt places to eat and hang out and do things!
This morning was a dull,dismal,dark,dreary day here.The highs for the day will be 53 the lows of 41 and its 47 right now and cold and raining.Mom got us all up this morning and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix with eggs!We all just love eggs!Then she got dad his breakfast of raisin toast and coffee and then made dad his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the work week and then the two skin sibs called her and drove her crazy.Mom managed to get a wash in the washer and was going to hang the sheets out on the line when she forgot to get the laundry out of the washer and dad told her it has already started to rain.Mom is so tired of going back and forth with both skin sibs about the apartment next door to skin sis.Skin bro went up to meet with the landlord and at the last minute backed out of it.He later found two places that included everything and he's got an appointment for one tomorrow at 5:30pm and the other one you have to go in person to look at.They don't take phone calls,Mom is hoping that he'll take one of them at least and get this thing over with once and for all.Mom thought that she would have a nice quiet day here but skin sis still is coming over to do her laundry and bring our frother and fister with her.Mom is hoping that she'll take more of her stuff back with her.She was hoping that skin bro was going to come and take all his box springs and mattresses out this weekend but now Mom's gotta wait longer for that to happen.It looks like Mom will have to wait til tomorrow to have a nice quiet day.Mom hasn't gotten much done today at all except be on the phone with both skin sibs.Skin sis came over and did her laundry and Mom clipped Peepers flight feathers.Mom made lunch for everyone,skin sis and Mom had broccoli,onions,diced tomatoes and parmesan cheese with angel hair noodles.Then Mom made lime jello for dessert.Dad had soup and crackers.Skin sis finished her laundry while Mom cleaned up the kitchen.Mom made a tuna noodle casserole,but everyone had a very late lunch and no one is interested in eating dinner so Mom will have it for tomorrow night's dinner.Skin sis finally went home after 6:00pm and Mom ran upstairs and took a shower and made up the bed with dad.Because of the rain here all her wash had to go in the dryer.

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 53 the lows of 40 and its 53 right now.We were all rudely awakened early this morning with the sounds of trucks and banging and lots of noise.The neighbor across the street from us is having her whole paved driveway dug up right down to the dirt,the trucks are scraping and loading all the busted up pieces of pavement into trucks that will get rid of them and there's back hoes and roller trucks and guys out there with axes chopping up the dirt etc.Just Thursday she had a big scrub pine that reached up to the sky taken down.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Nana sent us home with some eggs and Mom mixed that into our bean mix.She got dad his breakfast of blueberry waffles and coffee and then she started on some chores she didn't do since she was gone all day yesterday and too tired to do them when she came home.Dad was waiting on skin bro to contact him to help him move today to the apartment next to skin sis.So far we haven 't heard a thing.So far both Mom and dad will be home today with us and its another uneventful day and who can complain about that?Not Us!
We are in for lots of rain here tomorrow afternoon and I'd love to send it to you!Its gonna rain here for most of the week now.Mom wanted to hang laundry out on the line tomorrow but that's out now with the rain.You had us all cracking up with that hog running around that can't sit down!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses for sweet Ginger!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making a shreddable toy that looks like a person. You will need,

- A wiffle ball
- Cupcake papers
- Beads
- 2 bigger wood beads
- Mini wood blocks
- Paper straws
- A treat cup
- 3 paper loaf cups
- Safe stringing material

Start by taking a pretty long piece of string, and tying a loop at the top. String on a bead, and then take 5-6 cupcake papers and cut the sides into strips, and then string those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on. Now string on the wiffle ball, and then a longer or bigger bead. Now you are going to take a new piece of string, and tie it onto your first piece under the big bead you just added. Once you tie that on, you should have two pieces hanging down on either side of the original piece. On both strands, you are going to string on a mini block, and then half of a paper straw. Then knot the ends on both sides. Now going back to the original string, take a treat cup and poke a hole in the bottom, then string it on facing down. Now take your 3 loaf cups, and poke holes in the bottom of them. String one on facing down, then string on a bead, then another loaf cup, then another bead, then the last loaf cup. Now string on 2-3 beads, and then take another new piece of string and tie it on the original, just like last time. You will want the two pieces hanging down so that they are longer. On each strand, string on a single big bead, and then knot the bottoms. Now string one more bead on the original strand, and knot the bottom. You're done!

Mom just adores this toy, she says it is one of her favorites that she has made. There is a picture in my gallery!

Thank you so much for voting for me! Just one more night until I will hopefully be in the castle! I'll see you tomorrow night. (:

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Ginger
How awesome that Aunt Lori's parronts bought dinner for Aunt Lori and Papa John!And Thai food is awesome,Mom's favorite it Pad Thai!
This morning was a bright sunny but cool morning with the highs for the day of 50 the lows of 41 and right now its 49.Mom got dad off to work and then she loaded the car with the trash and the rest of the recyclables then got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.She got our birdie trash in the car along with all the donation stuff and trash that Mom and skin sis cleaned out of the work out room last Sunday.Then both Dixie and Candida were put in our carrier and Mom took off to Nana's house.Mom got us in our cages there and then she once again unloaded her car into Nana's car and got Nana's things trash and recyclables in her car and they took off for the dump.It took Mom quite a while to get rid of all the recyclables and all the donation boxes,Nana's car was filled from the back seat to the trunk floor and all.Mom kept running from one end of the recyclables to the donation tables.From there they went to True Value to see if Nana could get a new washer for our cousin Bella's water bottle as it was constantly leaking.The girl there found one for her but the bottle still leaked so they took it out and said it was the spout that was causing the problem.They went back to Nana's after that and Mom called skin sis and she came down within 10 minutes.Nana made tea and mini bagels for Mom and her for breakfast and skin sis came in while they were having it.Then Mom,Nana and skin sis went out to Nana's front yard and both Mom and Nana were digging around in Nana's front garden to plant her dying primroses.Mom planted six of them for Nana and then she and Nana were pulling weeds and got a pile of them pulled.Mom kept getting grabbed by a rose bush and the thorns kept sticking in her and she had to twist around and get the thorns out of her pants and hope that they didn't leave holes in them.Nana was beginning to hurt more and so she had everyone go inside so she could make lunch(a salad with fruit)and after they finished eating we fids all got a fruit bowl which was so yummy!Dixie and Candida got to stay in Nana's sun room and enjoy the view out back.Then Mom and Nana went into the sun room and worked on some of their quilting for an hour.They had lunch and then Mom got ready to leave around 3:30pm,cleaned our cages and got us back in our carriers .Skin sis followed.Mom got stuck in the long long lines of traffic at the end of Nana's street to get out onto the main road.After nearly 10 minutes of waiting for a chance to get out she finally did.Mom beat dad home by minutes and he was so surprised to see her home so early,usually Mom doesn't get home until well after 6:00pm.Mom put us back in our cages and gave us our snack of animal cracker and then she got dinner for dad,did the dishes and now finally she's here taking our dictation!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my l

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making a shredder toy that looks like a cupcake. You will need,

- A treat cup
- Cupcake papers
- Beads
- Safe stringing material

Start by taking your string and knotting the bottom. Take your treat cup, poke a hole in the bottom, and string that on facing up. Now take beads, and string them on until you have beads almost to the top of the cup. Take your cupcake papers, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middle. Now we are going to be making a puff on top. String on a paper facing down, then one facing up, then one facing down, and so on until you have a puff that looks like frosting. Now take some beads, string them on, and top it off with a bigger red bead. Tie a loop, and you're done!

When mom starting making this toy tonight, it was supposed to turn out like a bowl of ice cream. But she thought it looked a lot more like a cupcake and left it that way. There is a picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Grey Bird

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 50,the lows of 41 and right now it's 50.Mom got dad off to work and then got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave Dixie his antibiotics and his eye drops.Mom had to chase Candida again from the Bird Room to the dining room and back over 13 times.I think she got her exercise for the day.Mom finally had to grab her off the toy hook on the play gym,and shut our door so she couldn't go back out to the play gym in the dining room.Candida thinks she should be free and uncaged all day!Then we got our bean mix.Mom is going to get the trash ready and the recyclables packed in the car to take to the dump tomorrow.It's going to be another boring day with nothing interesting going on and Mom working on her chores and we're just so happy about that.Mom is still tired from the long day she had yesterday and is going in slow motion today.We are happy because Mom is home with us all day.When will it be warm all the time so we can go outside and enjoy the sunshine?

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! I am so sorry for not blogging yesterday. Mom had a very bad headache and couldn't keep her eyes open. But, I am happy to report that when she woke up this morning she felt just fine! To make up for not blogging last night, we will be making two toys tonight. For the first toy you will need,

- Cupcake papers (for small/medium birds) or mini cupcake papers (for extra small birds) or coffee filters (for large birds)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. String on a bead, and take 3-4 cupcake papers or coffee filters, poke holes in the center, and string them on. String on another bead, and then more papers. Keep stringing on the beads and papers until it reaches your desired size. Then finish off by stringing a bead on top, and tying a loop.

For the next toy you will need,

- Wood (what ever size and type is right for your bird)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL: a bell

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. If you are using a bell, tie the knot on the bell. String on a piece of wood, then a bead, then another piece of wood, then another bead, and so on until it reaches the desired size. Finished it off by adding a bead to the top and tying a loop.

Both of these are very simple, but fun to play with! The wooden toy was made for Paris using balsa, and the cupcake paper toy will be for one of the conures. There are pictures of both toys in my gallery. (Mom apologizes for the hideous colors of the cupcake paper toy. She had no pretty colors!)

Thank you so much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 51 the lows of 37 and right now at 7:00pm its 51 and still sunny out there.Mom got dad off to work and then she got some things done and then got us up super early,8:00am and cleaned our cages,swept our room and gave Dixie his antibiotics and Ofloxacin for his eye.Then she left to go to Nana's.Nana finished getting our cousins ready and then they got in Mom's car and went to E.Falmouth to pick up skin sis.What a nightmare it was having to go miles and miles out of the way just to get a few minutes down the road.There's construction going on everywhere in Falmouth and the detours are so long and all around creation.They went to Friendly's for breakfast and got the half priced breakfast which was too big for Mom and Nana to finish.Two eggs,Two slices of ham,Nana got bacon,and two pancakes.Skin sis got sausages and Brioche.From there they went to Falmouth Pet where Nana got some dried fruit for our cousins and the girls there wanted to know if we knew of anyone who wanted a B&G macaw.Mom was talking to him and he took a nut from her but the second time Mom offered him a peanut he nearly took her finger off!The girls said that he had been with his former home for over 35 years and the wife died and the husband couldn't keep him anymore as the Macaw started attacking him,the macaw hates men.And he loves the girl who works at the store but then he has his days where he wants to attack her too!From there they went to Dollar Tree and then Christmas Tree Shops and then Stop&Shop and CVS.Skin sis wanted to go to DQ so they went there and she bought them all Blizzards.Mom had one with fruit in it.From there Mom dropped skin sis back to her apartment as she had to go to PT and she took Nana home and had some tea with her and then left as it was 5:00pm.When she got home dad helped her unpack her car and then load it with all the stuff that skin sis left for the trash and donation places they worked on the other day.Then Mom made dinner for dad(Mac'N'Cheese)cleaned the dishes,our cages and then put all the stuff she got away.She brought some stuff out for the CawCaws to eat,dad had brought them the stuff that Nana brought home for them earlier.Now finally,Mom is here to help us get our notes out!Mom is so tired from driving around all day!

  Hi Ginger
Those antibiotics are just like what your sweet Papa John said they are,if you don't take them long enough until there's an improvement then they're not going to work properly.Papa John is right to demand a refill to keep taking them to really do the job they're intended to to!We are all hoping that the new medication for his leg with work for him quickly!He will always be in our good thoughts and prayers for speedy healing!
How awesome that he got to enjoy his last birthday dinner and to get a free dessert as well to go along with it,you just can't beat that?And that in itself sounds so good!big chocolate chip cookie with ice cream in the middle of the cookie and a candle stuck in the ice cream!Bob is so funny with telling Papa John should've had a road flare in his dessert instead of a candle!LOL!
This morning was a dark rainy cold morning with the highs for the day of 48 the lows of 40 and right now its 43 and raining.After Mom got dad off to work she got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she scrubbed both bathrooms and gave Dixie his antibiotics and eye drops.Other than washing the floors and vacuuming and working on trying to put all the junk Mom and skin sis got out of the spare room packed in her car,and some other chores its going to be another boring dark day here.But at least it will keep Mom home with us all day again.Another uneventful day here but we're happy about that.We never know what's going to happen around here with people popping in unexpectedly like yesterday afternoon skin bro came and stayed for several hours and then skin sis came over at 7:30pm to pick up her big game table from the sun room.
