  Hi Cookie
other than listening to Cori scream for 2-1/2 hours while she was getting her beak dremmeled the house was very peaceful today. Piddy girl still hasn't regained her strength from her ordeal of being chased after escaping yesterday. Paddy Cake is right back to being his bad self and flew down to check on me about 6 times tonight but i may not be able to fly but i am fast and was no where to be found every time he came over. even mom coulnt find me and kept calling out my name so she would know exactly where i am. i will come out of hiding when mom calls my name but i won't come to her unless she has a treat. hope you had a great day.

love Boo Boo

That all smells so good to me! I bet you will be helping your mom bake ... and being the taste tester! Enjoy.
Wishing you a happy Winter Solstice, it's now officially winter. This is the shortest day and now we will start getting lighter ... yay! Raise your hot chocolate mugs to start the countdown to summer!

  Hi Cookie... TiPaul here
Thanks for your help in getting me to the 10K club! I can't believe - less than 500 votes to go. Mom says I am getting too excited. It is really a big thing though. Today it was bitter cold out again so Mom stayed with us and of course cleaned our cages. She did have to do some stuff on the computer for a while but it did not take too long. We squawked to go to sleep early, but sometimes we do that when we wake up early. Tomorrow is another day, and we will play hard again. . Mom is hoping it will warm up a little because she wants to bring up some more wood, and it is too cold to stay out long enough to do it. Have a greyt evening, and see you tomorrow! hugs from Quebec.

  Hi Cookie
Mom and Nana are so happy you got the package!That was really fast!I think Nana made Mama Mary a knitted or crocheted dish rag to use!Both Mom and Nana were going spastic trying to get all the packages out on Friday and the Post Office gave Mom a hard time about your zip code,Mom had taken her BC directory with her and it was just as she wrote it but the post office guy told her it was wrong,we were so worried as he wrote a different zip on it but you got it so we're so happy!
Oh do those snickerdoodles and chocolate kringles sound beak watering good!
It was a drab dark day here and the temperatures were at 41 degrees.Mom got us all up and fed us and gave Mario his meds and dad his breakfast and then she was going to write out the last of her cards and get some baking done after she took us on our visits,but all we got were the 404 page not found and Squawkatiel page no matter what she tried to do,so just as she was going out to the kitchen to start baking skin bro called and wanted to pick her and Nana up to take them both out for breakfast,so Mom had to quickly get dressed and he was here for her before she could get her hair done.They went to Moonakis Cafe and its always crowded there they had to wait awhile before they got seated and Mom got the pumpkin pecan pancakes,Nana got the cranberry walnut pancakes and skin bro got the blueberry pancakes!Was Mom ever full after all that,they had coffee to go with it.Then they went to Walgreen's where Mom got my frother Mario more of his meds as she was running out of them,they gave her just enough for two weeks time,then as they were trying to come home there was a road block by the policemen and skin bro couldn't go down the main road to take Nana home so he went all around to the back road and that also was blocked off and the traffic was bumper to bumper all backed up as that too had a road block by the police cars,then two fire engines and two ambulances went flying by this small two lane road and they saw there was a house on fire with lots of smoke billowing out to the sky and fire engines and police cars just everywhere.What happened on Nana's main road we have no idea,but they finally got to drop Nana off and then tried to get Mom home,which was another tangle in the road blocks and traffic again,skin bro finally got her home after an hour,when it should've only taken 20 minutes at the most!After Mom got everything taken care of when she got home,clean our cages and take our breakfast bowls out and give us all some pellets and clean up the kitchen and get dad his lunch,she tried to get us back on BC and still we got the 404 page not found and the squawkatiels. We are going to try to hurry as it finally came back on now and hopefully it will let us get our visits in before we get shut out again!
Oh it sure does pay to be good,how awesome you got a strawberry too!When Mom came home we got pomegranate seeds and did we love those!Mom is so far behind on everything now she'll have one day thi

Well mom ripped that whole baby afghan out after all. She said she didn’t like that pattern when it got bigger so now she is working on another pattern . Never know with mom if it will stay or be torn out too. I was quiet last night and mom was worried I wasn’t feeling well so she didn’t sleep good worrying about m and even checked on me during the night when she was up. This morning though I am back to my old self and mom sure is happy about that! I was just tired mom thinks so I went to bed earlier tonight. “One small crack doesn’t mean you are broken, it means you were put through the test and you didn’t fall apart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Pick up their toys they quietly sit and watch spongebob.Hulk tells Cookie how he has been kind of naughty lately.That on friday when mama Sandy was making cookies he went into the kitchen to bite on the cabinets and when he was told to step up he bit a hole in mama Sandy's sweater.Then later that night when his dad got home from work he followed him into the bathroom and while his dad was getting ready to get in the shower he chewed on the wood in there and when he was told to step up he bit his dad and made him bleed.
Hulk asks Cookie if he thinks santa bird will still bring him new toys?

  Hi Cookie
Bacon rolls sound interesting....what is the bacon rolled around? Something yummy, I bet!

Well, it isn't warm enough outside for me to get a sunbath, but it is a little warmer than yesterday. Tomorrow and Tuesday are now the days that the weather geeks are saying will hit upper 70s. I sure hope they are not messing up again, because I would really like to get outside.

Mom did the heat up Kiddo's room so we can turn off the heater routine after getting home from the gym today. Then after her shower she came back in to turn my heater back on and read with me for a while. I am glad she is in the middle of a good book. That always means more time with me, and less time with Dad. Yay me!

Mom got a plate of homemade Christmas cookies from one of her zumba buddies at class this morning. They are very tasty, and she and Dad put a small dent in the treats. I did get to share one with Mom, and I gave my beaky approval.

Meanwhile I am enjoying my Mom time by giving her a dental exam. I like to check her teeth and make sure they are all there. Or maybe I am trying to find her beak! I can still dictate blogs while playing dentist though, and then there is the fun of climbing up and down Mom's body. No biting again today, so I am enjoying full privileges.

  Hi, Cookie
Thanks for liking our new pic. That was a prize from Dixie and Kallie for guessing a theme at NTT recently. Came out really nice.

Yup, the grand will be at Christmas dinner with her parronts. Mom has a few things for her and quite a few things for skinsis (who let mom know what kitchen items were on her wish list).

Mmmmmm, gingerbread sounds yummy. Mom hasn't made that in years but something she loves. Only gonna be baking bread as know skinsis is making some cookies along with the peppermint bark.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Cookie
I bet you can't wait to get all the Cookie time that mom will spend with you!
Today is another short blog, mom is working at the museum from 1 to 4, and really really has to do laundry. The bed linens, towels, and after yesterday's baking, the potholders and tea towels, as well as her clothes, well, it's just a mountain of laundry that needs done! She is planning to do that when she gets back from doing the Polar World touchables cart. At least she will be on the balcony today, and not in Polar World, where somehow the heat never seems to reach. So she'll be warm.
Mom was picking out an outfit for today, and got out a burgundy pants suit that she had made. When she put on the pants, she laughed and laughed! It is so old, the pants are wide bottomed! She ended up wearing the top, which she had edge stitched in gold, and it has gold star buttons on. But she chose khaki pants to go with it. Now the old pants are on the sewing machine. She's hoping to alter them sometime soon.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritchies and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cookie.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Let's hope for the best with the nest boxes.
The play that mom and dad saw yesterday was real funny. It was called "What the Butler Saw". Dad said he doesn't understand because it had nothing to do with a butler. The whole show was done in typical dry British humor fashion. After the play mom and dad went to Thai Table restaurant for some Thai food, which was great. Nope, no leftovers. When they got home the lights were already out so dad said good night to us and tucked us in for the night. Dad may mow the lawn today. Or mom and dad may work at the police dept. It's still up in the air.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 69 and a low of 53.
Hope your day was fun.
Blue and Jewel.

  Hi Cookie... TiPaul here
Mom and Dad went to their Christmas dinner and came back with a Christmas music CSD, made by the guy at the restaurant. He is a fantastic singer and has made a few CD's in the past, of which Mom has already. he sings in English, French and Italian. She and her girlfriend were both given a CD tonight, and Mom was so happy. It is playing now in the background while we are writing to all my friends. Mom will go back tomorrow to get our turkey bones. They will be making the soup tomorrow and we get all the leftover bones. It looks like we will have our own party. mom says the meal was delicious - she is so full, that even with dancing, she said she cannot go to sleep yet - she is stuffed! I told her that is good... I have more friends to write to. See you tomorrow.

Hi Cookie,
You must have your Mom home now and aren't you happy?! I'm sorry that I haven't been arond much lately. It's been a hard month for Mommy with Daddy in the hospital and more surgery again. He's been home now for about nine days, but Mommy has to give him lots of attention and take him to many doctors' appointments, AND skin bro was here visiting last week which was wonderful! And poor Momma is exhausted. Just when she thinks she could blog at night when we're all in bed, she's so tired that she falls asleep at the computer, sometimes even at the dinner table! So she needs to go to bed.

  Hi Cookie
the budgies were very very bad today. they escaped from their cage while mom was cleaning it and feeding them this morning. mom immediately thought she locked the cats in the bedroom and the doggie in the office. somehow the cats got out of the bedroom and while mom was trying to grab the cats to get them back in the bedroom the budgies flew over and landed on Coris cage. all mom could think of was budgies with no more feet. when she got them off Coris cage their flew over and landed on mine and i was ready but not as fast as mom who was running around like a maniac trying to catch them. finally after mom and the budgies were exhausted pidddy landed on moms head and mom grabbed paddy and got them into their cage. bad bad budgies

.mom was reading something very interesting today. a group of scientists from the netherlands have developed a mushroom that eats only plastic. they developed this to try and take care of the huge amounts of discarded plastics floating around in giant floating piles in our oceans today. most of the discarded plastics are from the united states.. the scientists say it will be many years of testing before they can determine if the plastic eating mushroom would be edible by humans. since many plastics are now used in shampoos and makeup mom had a disturbing thought. as a young girl in the 50s she saw a movie called attack of the mushroom people. it was about a group of travelers who had been stranded on this island with no food. they found these delicious mushrooms that staved off their hunger but the more they ate the faster they actually turned into mushrooms themselves. mom was terrified to eat any mushrooms for fear she would turn into one. now she has to worry if the mushrooms will attack her face because of the plastic in the makeup or attach themselves to moms hair because of the plastic in the shampoo. what if the plastic eating mushrooms form a gang and liberate the poor mushrooms grown on mushroom farms because they aren't being treated humanely. at least mom feels some sense of hope that some are trying to get rid of the huge piles of plastic trash and maybe being a mushroom might not be such a bad deal.

Can you believe that we woke up this morning to snow? It was even covering our deck but it soon went away and is kind of drizzly out there and cold at 36 degrees.Mom was too tired last night to make our bean mix up so we had to wait for her to cook another batch up for us this morning and instead of bean mix(she ran out of it)she made us pastene pasta with eggs in it and oh was that sooo good! I chowed my bowl down in a heart beat and Mario,who hasn't had any interest in food for a week now or more came right down even before Mom could put the bowl down for him and he chowed right down!Mom got up at 4:50am this morning to give skin bro a wake up call and then went right back to bed and never got up til near nine and we were all waiting on her!But it was worth the wait as she gave us such a nice warm breakfast!Mom is going to spend the day catching up with the house chores and cleaning our cages good as she was out all day yesterday and then she's going to start wrapping presents for her sisters family and get that all done so she can just relax and get ready to start baking some things to bring to Nana's for Christmas.So far the forecasts here are for heavy rains and lots of it as much as 2 inches in some places or a little more.We don't mind the rain as long as its not freezing rain to take our daddy away from us on Christmas day.
It was really nice that your Parronts came home early to be with you and you didn't have to spend the whole day all alone!Mom is getting ready to do some baking tomorrow and she's not sure just what she'll make but maybe she'll try and make the pumpkin cake and a cranberry pudding.Those bacon rolls really sound incredibly good!And won't Mama Mary's sister be so surprised to see those!
Its going to be quite alot of fun to watch baby Landon on Christmas opening his presents and the expressions on his face as he sees the things he really likes!It was always so much fun to hide presents on my skin sibs when they were younger and it made Christmas so much fun getting the stockings filled and the packages wrapped and hidden and pulling them out after they both went to bed,Mom always loved buying the one red gift they could open on Christmas Eve too!Usually a pair of new red winter pajama's!

I hope you are having a fun day and I hope you are not in solitary too long! I think it's awesome that you can see the cards from your condo! I can too! I love looking at them.
Dad's doing some of his laundry today. It's been about 3 hours and he has managed to get 1 load done. He keeps leaving to go play on the computer and then forgetting to turn the washer on! He thinks that the clothes will magically end up in the dryer all by themselves! He is such a dork!

  Hi Cookie--
Well, Mom is in the home stretch now....there's no keeping those kids' attention is there? Good thing there are so many Christmas crafts available....My Mom remembers the pre-holiday shopping spree at the craft stores to help the kids get thru those last weeks!

It is finally beginning to look alot like Christmas at my Moms' house. They don't like rushing the season like the retailers do...prefer to let it stretch out til Epiphany like the old church calendar Mom's not quite done with everything yet, but by next week everything should be shipshape, and there will be peace at our house....or so we hope.Mom misses me when she wraps presents...I used to help her with that.

The Uncles have gone away for 3 weeks. Mom is helping take care of their birds and plants. Two days ago Marie (the brown-headed parrot)bit her on the hand while she was offering a hazelnut. Mom was not amused. Marie may be getting less flying time from now on! Einstein (the ekkie) was fine and Copernicus (the psychotic chattering Lory) was nervous about having his cage door open, so Mom didn't force him to come out. All in all, Mom would rather plant sit. She feels sorry for the birds that their Dads go away so long. Maybe over the weekend both Moms will go and spend a few hours with them...

Sherman and Peabody have become regular shredding machines. The Moms put every scrap of cardboard they can find in their cage, in addition to the obligatory roll of adding machine the end of the week their cage is half full of shredded and unrolled paper...I didn't think they needed as much nesting material as a Quaker, but apparently no one told them that!

The finches are as ever. We have a bully in the contingent who singles out one other bird for plucking...we tried changing cages, but he just found another victim. Mom T says she's going to isolate him as soon as she figures out just which one it is. Mom D has been after her to do it for some time, so she'll get no arguments from her.

Hugs to you and the flock....

Sneaking a few minutes on BC.
Life is ok here. Mom put on my Christmas collar from last year, and I'm not happy. She said I pulled too many feathers in the colder weather to leave it off.
Yesterday was mom's last day at school, tomorrow is the kids.
The sky is throwing tiny snowballs again today, it did yesterday too. But the sidewalks and streets are clear. Are you getting the weather that went south of us?
It has been so dreary looking out that mom is wanting a "happy light" to help her get motivated.

  Hi Cookie!
I think you should get to go to bird club too but actually I'm only interested in the pasta part of that party! hehehe! We never got to go to bird club when we lived in Virginia either. Mom always said health issues but I think they didn't want us to know how much fun it was!
You should see the way the kids hit the piñata here! They don't use a stick, they use their fists and punch it! And those pinatas are really hard, mom worries they will break some bones! And some of these tiny little girls really smash it hard - mom says they have some pent up aggression issues obviously! hehehe! She is doing another one for todays' class. And they are making Christmas cards again too.
The kittens pretty much took most of the lights off the tree last nite so it is being moved to the casita now. We still have lights all over and decorations so it is still festive in our house.
That is nice you will have your mom for a nice long break over the holidays! Will you have a white Christmas? Have a nice day and maybe you'll get a birdie bag of pasta from the party!

Snuggle together on the couch as they continue to watch Christmas movies. Mom Theresa comes in to refresh there drinks and bring some more Hummingbird cookies and some Cardinal shaped cookies for them. She puts in the the movie "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and both friends can't wait until the movie starts as they begin to munch on their cookies.

  Hi Cookie
V4U today. Mom is so far behind with answering our blogs. The days have been flying by, and it will be even busier the closer it gets to Christmas. Yes, that was really good news on our dog. The tumor was cancer, but it was caught early and the vet said the outside margins were clear. She's doing fine for an old gal of 13. We have to carry her up and down the stairs when we take her out to do her duty, but she walks just fine in the house, especially when she hears her food bowl. Her hearing is just fine! LOL :)Have a good day. From, Mayo

Come visit me, Mayo, Dandy & Marigold.

  Hi Cookie
Mom didn't even know I'd been BOTD with all the computer trouble lately and other things so that's why I haven't been by. Silly woman, why'd she think all us birds were gone for a whole day? Well, most of us, Sophie kept her busy and then oatie would take over. hahaha Sure glad you and my fisters had such a great time.
Around our place it's nearly warm enough for water balloon fights.....well, ok, NOT THAT warm but 50s are pretty nice. We get our front door open for fresh air a lot. Pretty good for here in winter so my fisters say.
I'm getting more used to being touched in nice ways. Mom does scare me sometimes though, like when she runs over to get me off Sophies cage. yeah, that's scary but not as scary as the TOO beak heading at me! Mom usually is able to pick me up off the floor with much loving care and she's got great hair to hide in too. I'm even giving her kisses. I bit her last night because I was on Ipo's cage and didn't want to go to bed. hahaha She snuggled me even though I did bit her! And she said SHE was sorry for scaring me and picking me up so roughly. I gave lots of kisses and snuggled in her hair. What a difference from the other place!! Yeah, I feel lucky moving in here. Well, better head off and see everybird else and tell them what happened to us this week. Bye

Come visit me, Shaggy--2010-2013, Ipo, Sidney ~~ALWAYS IN MY HEART~~6/1996-2/2013, Oatie Odette *Thank you for the honor 11/27/13, Sophie O'Too, Pimer--Thanks you all, Jules, Punkin *My Dearest Little One--5/23/03 to 9/16/13* & Makana *I am honored as BOTD 10-17-14* Thank You.
