I was at the breeders store and Kallie was being fed formula and he was distributing it to all the other baby birds in the nursery and when he looked up and saw me through the glass window it was love at first sight. Tim the breeder let me hold him and he immediately went inside my coat to snuggle. That was it..

  Jeepers what a week !
2 hour delay Monday - early dismissal Tuesday - 2 hour delay Wednesday - no school today and now tomorrow is already Friday ! ! ! I sure hope this is old man winter's last hurrah ! It's supposed to go down to single digits tonight . . . brrrrrrrrr ! I must say it was nice that mom was home today - she made cookies for daddy !

Tomorrow she has to pick up MORE seed for the outdoor flock ! Give mama Rose lots of love :) She needs it - it's not easy traveling back and forth to visit nana like that :) Love to all the other fids and humans in your family too :) Cookie

  The news on the calendar page
sounds like nana is settling in except for the food ! I'm sure mama Rose is bringing some of her favorites each day when she visits. That's what mama Mary did for her g'ma when she was in rehab. Her g'ma seemed to always want a slice of pizza ! She had lots of pizza parties with g'ma and her roommate !

Yesterday, mom got home early cause of snow - today she had a 2 hour delay cause the roads were still icy and now tonight we're expecting another 4-8 inches ! We are right on the line though, so mom is hoping we're on the lower end. Of course today was mid-30's so there was some melting - hoping that doesn't freeze overnight causing even more problems !

Give mama Rose and everyone else my hugs ! Have her bring some to nana too :) love Cookie

  Is it spring yet ?
Mom was home really early today ! All after school activities (like her drama club) were cancelled because of the snow ! Yep, it's been snowing non-stop since about 3:00 - there's about 3-4 inches so far, and it's supposed to continue through the night and change to rain by morning . . . then another 4-6 on Thursday ! YUCK !

I hope nana is settled in and doing everything she needs to so she can get home quicker :) Give her and mama Rose lots of love for me and mom !

  Hi Kallie
hope Nana is doing better and better and your poor mom is not too exhaausted. please tell Nana that she must eat so she will get her strength back and heal quickly. also if they see she is eating they will not be as concerned and it will be easier for your mom to deal with them. you have to understand how cases they see like this all the time and they just lumped them all together and then you can get lost in the system. we don't want Nana to get big and fat but rather healthy and strong so she can continue to be independent.

it was a nightmare at our house last night. mom was dragging the garbage cans and recyclable bin up the icy snow packed driveway and she kept hearing this Zzzzzing sound and finally realized it was the electrical wire leading from the house to the street. mom told dad who called the electric company, the cable company , the police and the fire department since we didn't have a clue what was happening. they all showed up at once. at first they said it was just the ice and snow on the lines but just to be safe theychanged the transformer cover and cable and the Zzzzzing sound went away. while they did this the power was shut off to the house. we really didn't need any lights because all the trucks and equipment made it seem like daylight outside. at least it is fixed now.

just checking in to say hello and drop off some more prayers for nana and mama Rose too ! Mom had a 2 hour delay this morning because of about 5 inches of snow ! It started around noon yesterday and never stopped ! Mom pushed Laura's b-day dinner up so she could eat, have cake and open presents and still be home before dark ! The roads were icky ! More to come (only a couple inches) tomorrow afternoon, turning to rain Wednesday and then more snow on Thursday . . . 18 whole long days till spring :(

Be a good boy and be mindful ! Your family needs you to keep them smiling :) love you ! Cookie

  I sure hope you're not getting this snow !
it started before noon and is still snowing ! The weather guessers are still saying we're getting 3-5 inches . . . well we have that now ! And it's still coming down pretty hard ! Laura was here for her birthday dinner and mom made her leave while it was still light cause of the snow. Luckily she's house sitting right down the road - otherwise mom would have made her stay over !

How is nana doing today ? We are still keeping her at the top of the prayer list ! Give her lots of love for me and mom. And mama Rose too - make sure she's getting enough rest. She'll be no good to nana if she wears herself out and gets sick !

Take care of your family Kallie ! love you lots - Cookie and mama Mary

How's nana doing today? I hope better sounds like quite the ordeal the other day.All that anesthesia and pain med ' s sure can throw you for a loop.We are continuing to say prayers for nana for a full and speedy recovery.
Sunny here today but still on the cooler side.
It's been a quiet weekend here with mom being at work and dad out of town for the weekend visiting family. She got a pizza for us after work and it wasn't very good so that was dissapointing especially since she was looking so forward to it.Have a good night buddy.

  Just dropping off some more prayers . . .
mom's g'ma got the same way as nana when she had her hip replacement surgery - the pain meds really messed up her head. She thought g'pa was wanting lunch and kept trying to get up and get it . . . and she saw ladies in yellow bonnets dancing in her room.

I hope tomorrow's snow doesn't head your way - we're expected to get 4-6 (up from the 2-4 they were guessing last night). Sounds like a messy commute for mom on Monday . . .

Tell mama Rose not to worry about NTT ! We've got it covered ! Let her worry about nana ! Love to everyone - Cookie

  Hi Kallie
We all hope that today mom finds Nana more lucid. Tell her don't forget about liquids, to get all that anesthesia out of her system. They will probably have her up on a walker today or tomorrow, which will also help.
We are praying for her recovery.
Mom had a class this morning on handling raptors for medical reasons. She knew most of the stuff already, but they have discontinued grabbing one leg in each hand to move a large bird, as it's dangerous for the bird, who could easily break a bone. Instead, they were taught some upright restraint techniques. Mom thinks they will be better for the birds. When there wasn't a large staff there, mom used to help with some of the medical procedures, but now that they have 4 full time and one part time staff, she thinks those days are gone.
While they were in the middle of class the gas guys came because of the call Jill had placed earlier. People have been smelling gas around the front of the clinic for a couple of days, so they were asked to come check it out. Apparently, due to the age of the pipes and building, there is a huge leak somewhere underground between the building and the road below! It means major repairs, no hot water, no heat, etc. for the next few weeks, until the repairs are done. It's going to be pretty uncomfortable up there. Mom hopes it's an electric dryer that they've been using. If it's a gas dryer, that adds another layer to the problem, because of the large amount of laundry to do every day.
Seems like it's always something. The good news is that it's supposed to be in the 40s by mid week, instead of the extremely low temps we've been having.
I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
it all sounds very familiar. it is very hard to cope with the first time it happens. mom has gone through this so mny times she is actually surprised when our g-ma is in the right reality. many times social workers and nurses have told mom that our g-ma has dementia but mom said as long as you keep giving her pain meds this is the result. the first time it happened g-ma was in better shape and a few hers younger so it only took a few days for her brain to come back. lately when something happens to g-ma it seems to take longer and longer. the doctors and nurses tell mom but she is in pain and we don't want to see her suffer. mom says then give her extra strength tylenol. oh but that isn't enough. mom tells them it is and thats that. one time mom went into the hospital to help g-ma when she had fallen and when g-ma smiled all her teeth lit up like a jack o lantern. mom looked closer and g-ma had put that lighted monitor they put on your finger on her tongue. then after one hip surgery when you wouldn't think g-ma could walk at all she said the maids "nurses" really didn't know how to decorate and she was pushing her hospital bed out into the hall and telling mom to hurry up because she needed to go shopping at the mall. they used to tie the patients down but they no longer do that and would rather medicate them which results in total hysteria and confusion. i am wondering if the social worker has talked to your mom yet. i bet the social worker will tell you nana needs to be in a home. tell the social worker nana will stay with you until she can get around. don't let them push you into a hasty decisions as it will only upset nana more. i know your mom is beside herself but she has to be strong and think about Nana. Nana will come back mentally and that is all you can do for now. i know your one sister has a lot of kids. couldn't someone in the family sit with Nana ll the time. each family member would only have to sit with her for a few hours if they all do it. you can read, watch tv sleep, do needlework, knit whatever. its just when nana wakes up she will see a familiar face and not be so confused. we know why your mom is gong through and it seems even if you come from a big family it always ends up the responsibilty of one person and then they are criticized no matter what they do. tell them to just give Nana tylenol and since she doesn't weigh anything maybe thats all she needs and will do better mentally. Nana also seems pretty tough and probably can handle a little pain better than most

How's nana doing today?We are so happy to hear she came through surgery just fine.Now on to the road to recovery. That's great skin bro has been stopping over to take care of Bella and Trixie II .Well grandpa came by today to help mom take that dishwasher tube apart since he has all the tools.As soon as they got it detached a hard piece of plastic or a hard noodle she'll popped out.They put it back together mom ran the dishwasher again and once it was done running they checked it and the water was all drained thank goodness.
Mom was busy running errands for awhile before that but everything is done so when she's off again on Tuesdays she can stay put.Just in time too because we could get freezing rain that day or some snow. We had sun today and into the mid teens wasn't to bad out until the wind picked up later in the day.Have a good night and give hugs to all from me.

  Oh Kallie
How is nana ? We've been praying for her and were so relieved to see that she came through surgery OK. Once she gets settled at the rehab center, have mama Rose email mama Mary her address so she can send a card . . . that's nice that brother is taking care of Bella and TrixieII :) He's a good kid ! Did he hear back from Sears yet ?

See what kind of facility the rehab is - where mommy's g'ma was when she broke her hip, they let mommy bring g'ma's cat in to visit - maybe TrixieII and Bella can go visit ? It would probably help nana's spirits !

Be good and give mom lots of extra hugs ! love Cookie

  Hi Kallie
It's such a relief to know that Nana's surgery went fine and that she's on the long road to recovery. We are also glad to know that brother is taking care of the birds at Nana's house. We bet they are worried about her, too. Both Bella and Trixie II love her so much. It's great that the family is all there for Nana, too.
We were surprised to see Divo as Angel of the Day today. Thanks for remembering him.
Mom was at the center this morning as usual, and had the RVS room to clean. There was only one groundhog in there today, as well as that mean raccoon, and 5 bats. The good news about the bats is they are all in one terrarium. That's also the bad news! It's hard to keep track of who's been fed, and the white out was nowhere to be found. They all ate, mom thinks. They are so cute when they drink, too. Mom gives them water in a 1cc oral syringe, and their little tongues just lap it up from the tip of the syringe.
After the center she went to the supermarket to get us fresh veggies and to get herself some juice. Tomorrow she has raptor class at the center, it will be on medical handling for raptors, we think. They might redo the mammal handling class, which is great, since mom missed it. She also told them already that she would miss next week's raptor class because that's the day she helps out at Biscuits Bingo. Hopefully they will do something to make sure mom qualifies for raptor handling, since she's been doing it for 13 years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
well broken bones hurt surgery or no surgery. at rehab they will force Nana to walk. it will hurt like hell. the only way Nana will get better is to walk. pain killer make my mom very sick also so she won't take them. i think most people load up on so many pain killers they don't feel a thing. just tell Nana it will start to feel better. we know Nana isn't one to sit around anyway but mom always felt you need a few days to feel sorry for your self and then you can get better because you can't sit around or nothing will get done.

the most important thing is Nana came through the operation with flying colors. we are all very happy with the good news.

We are so sorry to hear about Nana and are praying that the surgery goes well and that she'll be on the road to recovery very soon. We love her, even though we've never met. Mom is quite worried, so she may call your mom later tonight, hopefully when she gets home from the hospital and has some good news about Nana. We are asking everybirdie on BC to pray for her.
We are doing a very short c/p today because mom just got back from the eye doctor. She didn't need a shot today, which is great news. She does have dilated eyeballs, though, which is not fun. It always takes a long time for her eyes to get back to normal after the visits to the specialist. She thinks they use something stronger than what her normal eye doc uses.

  Hi Kallie
we just read about your poor Nana falling in her driveway and breaking her hip. we are praying very hard that Nana comes through the surgery with flying colors. she will probably have to be in a rehab facility for a while to give her therapy because it does hurt afterwards and they get you up right away. our g-ma is 93 and has broken both hips and fractured a pelvis. sheis 93 and her last hip breakage was this past September and she was walking with a walker in about 2 weeks. the most important thing you can do for Nana is get her birds into your house to care for them and reassure her they are fine. that at least will give her some piece of mind. Nana might become a little confused from the pain meds. your mom can call my mom anytime for support .

Yikes what a mess your mom went through with her appliances it really is always something. We have hone all this time with out one problem and now it's been two things back to back.Mom is so hoping it's just something minor with the dishwasher she silk get a better look at it on Friday when she's off.
We got some light snow today got just under a inch but my mom said it sure made the roads very slippery.
Mom has her fingers crossed for your skin bro on the job we will pray he gets it.
My mom is with yours on not tolerating biting. This past Sunday night I was cuddling on my mom when she was watching a movie with my dad.Then out of no where I attacked her and bit her on her chest well that landed me right back on my house.

So how did Anthony do with his second interview ? And Shiloh and her dr. appt.? We worry about all of our extended flock . . .

We actually hit 34 again today ! Pull out the shorts and tee-shirts ! Mom did get home a little later than I like since she had to stop and get more bird seed for the outdoor cousins ! Jeepers they sure do eat a lot ! The owner of our local wild bird store (Feed the Birds) knows her by name ! That's how often she's in there - the couple who owns the shop are very nice and helpful. The husband always helps mom carry the bags and load them into the car :)

I'm going to head over to NTT soon as I'm done here and see how we're doing. Also since aunt Vicky gave mom the info, she'll clean up the page a bit too . . . give everyone and everybird my love :) Cookie

I really hope brother gets the job at Sears! That sounds promising, at least. Poor Nana, trying to get the ice off by herself. Mom does the same thing, which is just nuts, sometimes. It's great that you are getting your mail like you should be, now that dad cleared the area.
We didn't know mom had fallen on her back twice last week! Is she okay? Did she hurt her spine or ribs? We sure hope not!
We got our Bird Talk with points, and it came the other day. Mom is so far just looking at it, but I think she'll love the conure article, hahaha.
At the wildlife center there was some bad news today. The center lost Cy, one of the education owls. The little grey phase screech owl was brought to us a few years ago after having fallen (or been pushed) from his nest. He had some neurological problems and was missing an eye, so he couldn't be released. He became one of our dear education animals. Lately though, he's been having more seizures and they've been getting worse, so the decision was made to put him down to save him further suffering. It's always sad when they decide to euthanize an animal there, but one with a name whom everyone has worked with is almost unbearably sad. Mom cried this morning when she read the email, and is still kind of dripping. Cy is okay now, we know, and is whole and healthy once again. Fly free, little Cyclops, we'll all miss you.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of cuddles and scritches (and warmth). Hugs, Falco

the visiting nurse is coming tomorrow so mom was doing some cleaning today. don't forget mom was laid up with a bad back for about 4 weeks so there wasnt much cleaning done in that time period. moms back is about 90 percent better but if she overdoes it or moves in the wrong way it hurts.

we are only allowing the nurse in the dining room which is part of the kitchen and living room but she must sit at the dining room table right next to me and i will entertain her with how loud i can yell. hopeful she won't stay long.

The day after we got the new dryer mom went to go unload the dishwasher and noticed there was still water sitting in the bottom of it.She thought maybe it was a fluke thing so ran it again and same thing again.She has googling it and sounds like it should be a easy fix with just a clog in one of the drainage tubes that runs to the sink lets hope.She says it runs through all the cycles just fine and sounds normal so she is thinking thats what it probably is.
I tell you its always something.
Oh I hope you dont get that snow you dont need anymore.We could get some on sunday but they arent sure yet how much.
We got into the mid 30's today but tomorrow its back to the deep freeze.
My mom hates when that happens with recipes she is going to look for another peach cobbler recipe since this one is more soft like a cake.
Hope all is well there.Have you been staying out of trouble lately?Have a good evening.

How did Anthony's interview go ? Wings crossed for him ! He's a good kid and deserves a break ! Always ready to help out mom or nana . . .

Mom is trying to get me to take a bath - I'm itchy with new tubes and cranky with hormones . . . but I'm just not in a bathing mood tonight - maybe tomorrow - if she gets home at a decent hour ! Of course she does have to stop for more wild bird seed on her way. Those guys sure do eat a lot !

What a cute pic! Your mom is so good at those. WE thank her for ours, too. She always comes through for us. Haha, the Addams family mansion! Mom and her sister were talking the other day (at the funeral brunch) about the Munsters and the Addams family. Mom loved both TV series, and so did her sis. She also loved the Addams family movies, which were hysterical!
I hope mom is taking it easy in the cold, and not running around too much. How's Nana doing with the weather? We haven't heard much about her lately. I hope she is doing well and not getting cold. It's hard when people are older to stay warm sometimes.

Oh those goodies your mom made sound so yummy espically the cornbread I love that stuff.
My mom made a peach cobbler on saturday night and it didnt turn out to good this time was kind of doughy and soggy so she is going to look for a new recipe.Last time she made it it was great guess you never know.
It was a quiet weekend here I got lots of mom time so I was happy.The new dryer is great a bit loud but drys the clothes really fast.
Hope your weather is staying on the better side for now.Its been cold here but dry so we are happy.Hope your week is off to a good start.

Mom's day went pretty well and she came home to the BirdTalk magazine in the mailbox ! She ordered it just a couple weeks ago with her BC points ! There's an article about cockatiels written by my vet - so far all she's done is look at the pictures. By the time she got home and we played some, it was time to start dinner. Besides she wants to savor it . . . she really misses the monthly BirdTalk :(

The accountant's office called and the taxes are ready ! Daddy will go pick them up tomorrow - mom is hoping she can not only get a new sofa and loveseat, but maybe coffee table and end tables ? Wings crossed ! Maybe even, if I cross my toes too, some new toys ?

Do you have any more snow in the forecast ? Hopefully the temps will start moderating and there'll be a melting . . . I mean spring is only 25 days away !

Daddy just came out with a nutriberri ! Gotta run ! Literally ! Give everyone my love - Cookie

I hope you got some dad time, and I bet he was hoping to get some birdie time as well. Poor guy has been working pretty much non stop for weeks now!
Our weather is clear but cold today. It's great to see the sun, even if the air is cold.
This morning mom cleaned the recovery room. It was interesting, because of the variety of animals in there. There were 3 snapping turtles, 2 box turtles, a canvasback duck, a Canada goose, a barred owl, a Cooper's hawk, and a broad winged hawk. It was one of those days where the room was short of supplies, so mom had to gather newspaper, paper towels, daily care sheets for some of the charts, and make fresh disinfectant spray for the cages. The Coopers hawk got loose, and mom had to move a bank of cages to get it to fly to where she could net it. Always an adventure there! After the center mom picked up Lena and they went to the Smiling Banana Leaf for lunch. It's a Thai restaurant near where Lena lives. It was quite tasty, too. Then mom picked up a few things at the Giant Eagle, including her prescriptions, and went to the bookstore to order some new reading material.
Now she's back and ours for the day! Once she finishes our blogs and showers, that is. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

OK, it's not big but there certainly must be some melting going on out there - it's 36 after all ! ! ! Heat wave . . . tropical heatwave :) Of course tomorrow is back to a high of 16 ! Not very nice of mother nature to just tease us like this.

Mom and dad went and dug out the g'parronts after digging us out - another 4-5 inches fell overnight. It never did turn to rain like the weather guessers said. It stayed snow, stopped and then around 10:00 the sun came out :) Yippeeeeeee !

Mom also realized that in the stupor of her vacation she totally forgot NTT ! So we'll advertise and leave the "cold" songs up for another week - luckily it's still appropriate for most of the country ! Jeeez - maybe she should be back to work to help her remember what's important !

Give everyone in your house and family my hugs ! love Cookie

  Hi Kallie
Mom worked in a ghetto school, sort of, so when she nominated the young girl, she was hoping they'd actually read it and not toss it. She had heard from some folks at Carnegie Mellon University that when they got stuff from Wilkinsburg, they tossed it without even looking. Mom was so proud of her student! They did exchange phone numbers, so maybe one day soon they will get together for coffee or something. She told mom she has 3 kids, and is working full time at UPMC, a local hospital complex.
It was nice to see you at the milonga last night, even though we didn't get a chance to chat. Hope you are having a good day and get to spend some time with dad today, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hey buddy !
Well, the snow started here at about 2:00 - we have a little under 2 inches so far. It's supposed to end up 4-6 before changing to ice and then rain sometime tomorrow morning. Needless to say, mom and dad did not go see g'parronts today, they'll go tomorrow instead cause dad wants to dig out their walk and driveway. Besides, his allergies were pretty bad today and he had a headache. So early this morning mom went to the post office to mail out a couple bills.

The whole rest of the day she was home - we napped together and I had lots of head rubs and snuggles. I also did a lot of work on decorating - I've decided that my measuring cups, finger traps and bells look best in my food dish :) Play and eat at the same time ! Life is good :)

Now mom is getting ready to do a stir-fry for supper. She says I have to rest up if I want to go to Milonga tonight ! So give everyone my love and I hope I see you later ! love Cookie

  Hi Kallie
Thanks for having my portrait on your page. I like it a lot! I picked it up so I can put it on my page.
Your mom drove out in that mess yesterday? She sure is brave! It was so bitterly cold here that once mom got back from the wildlife center and her couple of errands, she just stayed inside.
Mom heard from a former student yesterday on Facebook! She immediately wrote her a private message, and said how nice it was to hear from her. This morning, they exchanged phone numbers, so I think they will be getting together soon. Mom is excited to hear from former students who have all grown up. She remembers this young lady because she nominated her for a music award from our local public radio station, and Jamie, the young lady, won! They came to the school, had a big to do and honored her and her family. Mom was so proud of her!
I hope you are having a great day. I hope to see you at the milonga tonight. Hugs, Falco

  Hi kallie
we are in a heat wave. we are getting temps of 34 . the weather forecaster are saying Pittsburgh may or may not get hit with a super snowstorm. it wasn't suppose to start until late this afternoon. guess what? it started early this morning. the grocery store was packed.

the doggie is now using her her healed broken leg
dad took the doggie to another vet for a second opinion and that vet said the sores on doggies foot from the wrapped splint is not a bacterial infection but a fungus infection. dad is now putting a anti fungal/bacterial cream on it to heal it. dad went down to the drugstore and talked to the pharmacist who said the vet had the doggie on the wrong ointment which is probably what caused the fungal infection. since the doggie is wearing her cone she can't lick the medicine so she should be ok. hopefully the cats won't get any medicine on their little paws.

not sure why the new health insurance wants to come to the house but they said this is their new policy. it sounds like they want to check the house out and make sure the parents can care for themselves and eat nutritional meals. it seems like they think the parents might be idiots.

  Hi Kallie
Today was the coldest one so far ! ! So cold it hurt - but as mom said - you don't have to shovel cold ! So she did go out and get her feathers trimmed and pick up a few groceries since tomorrow morning the folks will go to the g'parronts and then comes the snow :( Only 4-6 inches, and I know it's nothing like yours but YIKES ! More ?

Something really sad and disturbing happened here today. I was just sitting with mom having a lovely head skritch and all the wild friends were outside on the patio eating, when all of a sudden a hawk flew in - right onto the patio, not 2 feet from the sliding glass door - and snatched up a blue jay ! Right from the porch ! ! ! Mom cried, I squawked and daddy closed the drape . . . Although there are a lot of hawks around here, none has ever come in this close to the house ! We know that's nature's way, but we don't want to see it !

Well, vacation is over :( And it was glorious - I had so many head rubs and love and playtime :) I can't wait till the next one at Easter ! Now it's just the weekend . . . just like every other weekend.

How is it there ? I hope this next storm doesn't bring any more snow your way ! Did papa Rich find someone to take care of your roof ? That's really scary - all that snow and ice ? Give everyone my love ! Cookie

  Hi Kallie
My goodness, it sounds positively horrid there! The roofers told your mom not to try to take the snow off the roof? Wonder if mom got her mail out there in that box? That is terrible that the mail truck can't make it on the roads. Poor dad, too, doing all this work is hard on him and mom. I hope brother gets a good job. How's Nana doing? We haven't heard for awhile.
Happy Chinese New Year (Tet) to everyone. Did you dance under the dragon at the KB yesterday?
Today it's really cold again, it was 0 when mom walked the dogs quickly around the block. They had a very short one today. At the wildlife center, mom cleaned the main aviary, which is full of pigeons right now, and did the bunny room. There are only adult eastern cottontails in there right now, and one of them charged at mom! She was surprised, because usually the bunnies are so scared they try to stay still so no predator can see them. Anyway, the chores there were done and mom ran some errands before coming home.
Today is Lena's birthday. Can you believe mom has a granddaughter turning 31? She herself only turned 21 this year, hahaha. Mom is having the family for dinner tomorrow, so she had to buy a few groceries. Then she went to the mall to get her vitamin supplements, and dropped off posters for the baby shower and summer camps at the supermarket, her nail place, and the vet's office. Now she's home with us, and after she finishes our blogs, she will finally finish making those bows for the Biscuits Bingo. Then she's ours for the day.
I hope you are staying warm, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
I just can't imagine what it looks like there with all that snow enough is enough already.So they don't even want people to use a roof rake?You would think it's not good either to leave all the snow up there.
It's been brutally cold here painful to be outside. Think by Saturday we should be a little warmer.
The new dryer was going to come tomorrow but the delivery time didn't work for my parronts so now it will come some time on Saturday. Thank goodness because the laundry is starting to pile up. Looks like my mom will be doing lots of was this weekend.
As long as she's home I'm happy. Have a good night buddy.

  Hi Kallie
moms kitchen dining room and living room are all one room and there are no doors to close any of them off since the ceiling is a cathedral ceiling. her house is plot level and her upper level has the same ceiling as the lower level. on the next level down is the family room and laundry room which is on the same level as the garage. she could try and plug something in in the garage but she can't reach the ceiling where the plugs are. mom thinks this house was designed by a very tall man since mom has always had trouble reaching everything and must constantly use stoools and ladders to get to stuff the only way mom can use her waffle maker is if she takes it outside and plugs it in and she is not doing that now since its -10 with a windchill of -25. moon is so sick of this cold weather. when mom went to the grocery store today dad locked the door on her and in order for mom to unlock the door she had to take her gloves off and her fingers immediately went numb.

  more cold weather !
wind chill advisories ! The wind chill is between -10 and -25 - can you say brrrrrrrrrr . . . at least the sun is shining :) So mom made comfort food today - yummy baked ziti :) Even though it's Chinese New Year, the folks figure they'll have that with the g'parronts on Saturday - it'll be a nice break for them.

Tomorrow though, mom has to go out - she went and made an appointment for her hair - it's getting so long ! It gives me good places to hide but it bothers her so I guess I'll be stuck in my cage for a while :(

Did the snow off the roof guy call back ? I sure hope papa Rich can get someone to do it for him. It's too dangerous for him or brother . . .

I had a really good bath today - I'm feeling rather hormonal and I've been quite cranky. Lots of yelling so mom got out my tub and we had a splashing good time :) Hope you had a good day too ! Give everyone my love :) Cookie

  Hi Kallie
Thanks for the pic, it's in my gallery! I like it a lot. It took mom forever to get to the funeral home yesterday, then again to get home. What should have been at most a 20 minute drive was 45 going down there, and nearly an hour to get home. Your folks are Italian, so your mom will know all about this: Mom stayed there all afternoon to talk to all the cousins and friends who came in. There were a ton of folks. She was going to go back last night, but the roads were too iffy, so she stayed here.
Mom and her sis went to Aunt Marge's funeral today, that's why we're so late getting here. It was touch and go getting to the funeral home yesterday, as it started snowing really hard when mom was ready to leave. Today mom and Aunt Renee just met everyone at the church, since it was closer to where mom lives than the funeral home. She will be missed, but she lived to the ripe old age of 97, so we sort of have to celebrate her life. Mom told everyone the story about how Aunt Marge took a fully cooked pot roast back to the butcher at the local supermarket and told him to feed it to his family, as it was too tough for hers. She actually got her money back! She used to tell mom if she waited long enough for something in the store, they would eventually be throwing it at people to get rid of it. That was the time to buy.
Anyway, it's really cold here, about 6 out there now, and going back down later today. Mom will go to the center tomorrow, but if it's this cold, she will come right back here after and spend the day with all of us.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and most of all, staying warm.
Hugs, Falco
