My bird was up for adoption at the pet store. I was told he was injured so they could not sell him. They were giving him to someone that would give him a good home. When I saw him, I knew he needed to come home with me. Chipper is doing great now!

  Heya, Chipper!
Early visit today--Mom is waiting for someone to come over for the cabinet. It is 2 PM now and she is thinking she is not going to get the thing fixed at all. It is gonna take longer than 15 minutes to fix anything, that is for sure. She told them it was bad, but guess they might not understand the extent of the problem. And it doesn't solve the cause, so that has to be looked at too.

So it has been a day of waiting to have someone come over. UPS is supposed to deliver a package too, so we are definitely chained to the apt. for now.

Other than that, Mom left a note for Frank that the toilet now takes 2 flushes to actually flush. The water doesn't fill in the tank, so you have to flush it once, have the water fill up and then flush again. If you ask me, that is a waste of a lot of water. Frank said the guy always orders the wrong part, so he had a fix for it, but the fix now takes two flushes to actually flush the toilet. Sigh.

Best thing is: Mom is home. I love that!

Wing hugs coming atcha! Hope your day is better than ours!

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom is having the cabinet looked at or fixed tomorrow. She says it is eating up the sides of the cabinet under the sink now. Maybe they use a liner in the cabinets? Who knows. But at least it will be looked at and maybe taken care of.

Mom is gonna send your Mom the picture for the Derby tomorrow, so check your email, okay? She really liked how it turned out, too!

It was cold out today--48, with wind chills in the 30's. Oh yeah. WI weather is so much fun!

Mom got a big thank you from her hairdresser's hubby today for getting the website up and looking good. Should be interesting to see what the participants at the big meeting think.

Other than that, a nice day with Mom. Have to vote for the hats when I am done here!

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Heya, Chipper!
It was definitely a pretty decent day. We did have some wind so it felt a little cooler than the 69 they said it was. But it was not humid so that was wonderful. Of course, tomorrow will be back to the low 50's. I think Friday might be in the 70's.

Quiet here today. Mom worked on the website for her hairdresser's hubby. If this thing goes live this year, it will be a feat of epic proportions. Mom hopes they like the changes she did--they wanted things that are confusing to someone on the site, and Mom did fixes to make it make sense to the average user. She would love to get things set up more, but unless she is at some of the meetings, she has to wait for them to make decisions. Mom could help with that, but...well, she will have to suggest that to them.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom's dental appt. went well today. The insurance still is up in the air. Mom thought she had 50% coverage, but she doesn't. She has 25%, but she is glad to have the insurance. Next January it will bump up to 50% across the board for the major stuff, which is okay.

Mom stopped by the office today to make sure Frank said something about the cabinet. Not sure when it will be taken care of. We are hoping soon (before the bottom totally disintegrates!) We will have to wait until the owner comes, which should be relatively soon. They do a good job on the buildings--or Mom would not have stayed here 18 years.

Have a super rest of the night! Wing hugs coming atcha!

We had another dismal, grey day here today. We did get to 50, but it only felt like the low 40's due to the wind. Damp. Rain on and off. Guess you get the general gist of things--another blah day outside.

However, Mom and I want to wish you all a very happy Lei Day! We love Hawaii, which most of you know, so we always look forward to Lei Day as it means May is here, and we love May! Derby, Mom's Day, Mom's BD, my adoption day...yeah, May is our month.

Not much else going on here. Mom is off to the dentist tomorrow morning. She hopes that she is home when and if the building owner comes by to see the icky cabinet. Grandpa says that they won't replace the cabinet, but Mom hopes he is wrong. We would be happy without a dishwasher, but if they give us a new one, we probably will have to run it every week. Ugh.

Hello dear Chipper-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.

  Heya, Chipper!
Oh, gosh, Mom found this mildew/mold stuff under the kitchen sink. She totally freaked out last night. Cleaned everything with bleach spray. She turned on the fan over the stove to get the smell out, which was good. Everything was fine on Sunday. So she told her manager, Frank, and we don't know what will happen, as the cabinet bottom is messed up. She figures there is a leak under the dishwasher, as the cabinet bottom was dry. She doesn't use the dishwasher that much as it is just her and me, so the general idea is the seals might have dried and leaked out under the cabinet. She is just grossed out. YUCKO!

Grey, rainy, damp and gloomy today. Mom ran out for some stuff at the store and came home. And that is that for today. Just trying to be lazy. I am doing good. Mom is too. So darn damp here.

  Hi Chipper!
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

  Heya, Chipper!
We got to 47 today and Mom said that the sun outside was very deceiving. Cold wind dropped it to feel like 36. Brr! She went out to Sam's Club today and picked up a couple things. She also put a new trunk organizer thing in the trunk and took the old box that had her stuff in it and tossed it. The organizer is pretty darn cool, too. Has velcro on the bottom, and it sticks to the carpeting in the trunk so things don't move all over. Mom is happy the trunk looks so nice now!! (Doesn't take much to make her happy, I guess). And then she did some laundry under my supervision. And then we just had a nice afternoon together.

  Hi Chipper!
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. (:

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!

  Heya, Chipper!
When Mom took me last week to my new vet, they gave her an Avian Care booklet. She finally got a chance to read it. And guess what? For protein, they said chicken, beef, fish are good for us. FINALLY! Somebody finally realized that we are carnivores! I love flounder, by the way. Yummy stuff! Of course, they say to give us pellets, too, and other goodies. Mom tried pellets. YUCKO! I like real food.

It was 39 when Mom got up this morning, and it got to 40. But it was lots cooler feeling. Mom decided to stay in today. I did not complain at all, either! She put together her documentation of the problems with the changes to the website she was working on and sent it off to her hairdresser's husband. Mom says it is scary that people who do not understand the web are trying to set up something that they don't understand and don't know that they don't understand it. Sigh.

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!

  Heya, Chipper!
Today Mom got the call for updates to the website for her hairdresser's hubby. He faxed them to Mom. Of course, Mom has been working on the updates. She actually is pretty well done with them, too. He says he hoped she could get them done by next week. Mom had to laugh, as the are minor ones. She will wait to upload the changes tomorrow. Fast? Yup, Ignore me? Oh yeah, for a couple hours. However, she doesn't really like the direction that they are taking on the site, and has to make some suggestions as it is less user friendly.

Cold and grey day today. High of 47. Tomorrow is supposed to be a high of 43 with rain. It truly is damp and chilly! Where is our spring?

  Heya, Chipper!
Today it got to a high of around 48, if that. Very damp and the wind was not horrible, but it made it feel worse. It is 42, but feels like 36. No sun to speak of. Thursday we are not even gonna hit 40. Rain, too.

Mom went for her dental appt. today and had her cleaning. The tooth that has a growing white spot on the front of it will be taken care of on Monday along with two tiny spots on another tooth. Insurance should cover 50% of the cost, so Mom is happy. Mom says that she is just relieved that nothing else was found!

She ran to Trader Joe's today for some stuff and managed to get out of there under $26. And ran to pick up some other stuff at Metro Mart (fresh papaya! apricots--the first of this year! and an ear of corn on the cob). Yeah, I know, I am spoiled!!

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom is a klutz. She ended up on the floor, hitting her tailbone when she tried to do this exercise. Last time she hit her hand and got bruised and had a sore hand. She decided that the exercise is going to go on the 'never try this' list. She sure has some pretty bruises on her butt and tailbone. I won't go into detail, but she sure had a hard time seeing if there were bruises! But nothing feels broken, so she is glad she has a tough tailbone!

We had weird showers today. Got a little dark, thundered, had a couple drops of rain. Sun came out, rain came back pretty good, thundered. Now it is just sunny and 74. We got to 78 here today. The bad news is that tomorrow is gonna be in the 40's. And then the rest of the week in the low 50's. Sigh. Thought spring was coming here, finally! Ha. Not yet.

  Hello Chipper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight's toy isn't pretty, and very simple, but so much fun to shred! You will need,

- 3 paper bags
- Crinkle paper OR tissue paper
- Safe stringing material
- Treats

Take your first paper bag and open it. Take another paper bag, and without opening it, put it in the first one. When it is in, you can stick your hand in and open it up. When that one is opened, take one more closed one and stick it inside the others, and then open that one too. Stuff the bags with crinkle paper or tissue paper, and throw a treat or two in it. Close the bags, and fold over the tops. Take a piece of rope, make a loop, and then make a hole near the top of the bag (that goes through the front and folded over part), and string the loop through the hole.

I know this toy isn't the prettiest or most amazing, but Jester and I just love them! And they are so easy to make, and mom uses the hanging loops over and over again. LOL. Picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Heya, Chipper!
Happy Sunday or early Monday to ya!

Today was nice outside, got to 64 with intermittent sun. Mom and I had a lovely day before she went over to Grandpa's. She and Grandpa had a nice dinner and then she went outside to get rid of those darn maple seedlings. And she found two small maple trees growing in one of the bushes! Needless to say, she was on those like flies on honey. Pulled them out, too--gosh they had long roots! She probably would not have been able to do it but the darn things had a solid stem, so she could really get a grip on them. When she was out there a male cardinal flew out from the pine tree and onto the neighbor's locust tree and started singing.

Mom brought me some pasti--meat pie with carrots, onions and potatoes in a pastry shell. YUM!! Mom says she needs to make those again for her and Grandpa, as there was too much meat in these (store bought). She thinks she will use phyllo dough for the shell versus pie crust. Thinner and yummier!

She is home with me tomorrow, so that is cool. Rain and thunderstorms headed our way--they could be severe according to the Weather Channel. Hope not! In the 70's they say. Tuesday? High of 49. Go figure!

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Chipper!
Hi Everybirdie! Today mom went out to the pet store to pick up some pellets, and not only did she buy pellets, but she came home with TWO little BABY CHICKENS. They are super fuzzy and she thinks they are adorable. You can go see a picture of them on their page (The Peepers). They don't have names yet, mom is still thinking about them. They are very loud, they keep PEEP, PEEP, PEEPING. Mom thinks I will pick up the peeping noise by the end of the week, LOL. Anyway, for tonight's toy you will need,

- A wooden base (one that has 3 holes)
- Square wooden blocks
- Wooden slats
- Beads
- Paper treat cups
- Finger traps
- Safe stringing material

Take a piece of rope and tie a loop on it. String a bead on under the loop, and then string the rest of the rope through the middle hole on the wooden base. Add another bead, and knot it. Take another piece of rope, tie a knot, string on a bead, and the string the rest of the rope through one of the holes on the ends. On the piece that is hanging down, string on a wooden block, a wooden slat, and another wooden block. Take a treat cup, poke a hole in the center, and string it on facing down. Take a finger trap, a string that on through one opening all the way to the other. Take another treat cup, and string that on. Then string on another wooden block, and a wooden slat. Then tie it off. Then repeat that process through on the other end hole.

Jester is going to enjoy this one. Picture in my gallery!

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom went to see Kim today. She is doing good, but she only has a short time left at the rehab place. She says she is not going to stay there, no matter what, as she is not going to pay that kind of money. We went down to one of the dining areas where they have 2 cockatiels. They are cute!! The lady who owned them used to work at the place, and then had to be in the place as a patient. Well, her boyfriend came in and stabbed her to death, and killed himself. So now the two tiels are residents there. Very shy if you try to go near the cage, but loved all the attention Mom gave them. One was missing its crest--might have been molting. They get a lot of attention, too, Kim says. So that is super.

We got in the 50's today. Sunny. Mom put on a pot of soup for Grandpa and her. Turned out pretty good too, I must say. Now we all will have food for the next week! Since it is going from 70 back to the 40's and 50's next week, it will be yummy!

Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi Chipper!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are going to make little balls made out of toilet paper or paper towel rolls. You will need,

- A toilet paper or paper towel roll
- A treat

Take your roll, and cut four rings off of it. The rings can be what ever thickness you'd like, but we tend to cut ours a bit on the thick side. Start by taking two of the rings and sticking one inside of the other, so that it forms an X. Take a third ring, and slip it over the other two. Now you should add a treat. Finally, take the fourth ring and slip that over the others, and you're done!

These are super fun the play with. I love them! There is a picture in my gallery.

Thanks for voting for me!

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom did her errands today, and made it to Meijer. Glad she got my carrots on Wednesday--they did not have any of the nice organic ones with the greens on them! She picked up some yogurt for Kim, and red grapes and pineapple that she will share with her after she cuts it up. She is going to see her tomorrow, as there is nothing that goes on at the rehab place on the weekend.

Then Mom came home and I took a HUGE bath! Water everywhere. Mind your, I took a dip and run yesterday in my water dish, but today it was the bath bowl. Nothing better than clean feathers, and getting blow dried.

We are under a freeze warning tonight. Only got to a high of 49. At least the sun was out.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Chipper!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are going to make a cute cupcake paper toy. It is pretty small, but super cute! You will need,

- 1 mini bagel
- Mini cupcake papers (we haven't tried it with regular sized cupcake papers, but if you want to try it so that it is slightly bigger, I'd say go for it!)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material
- A small chain (optional)

Take the mini bagel and a piece of string, and tie the piece of string on to the bagel. After you tie it on, you should have two pieces of string hanging down. String a bead on to one of the pieces of string, then take a few cupcake papers and string them on. Then another bead, then more cupcake papers. Do this until you reach your desired amount, and then tie a knot on the end. Repeat on the other side. To make it so that you can hang it, you can either take a short piece of chain and put it on the bagel and join the two ends with a quick link, or you can tie on a loop with you stringing material.

Mom hasn't made this toy in awhile, but she has made them for our previous budgies. We will see if Perry likes it. :) Picture in my gallery!

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom and I had a lovely day here. She did not feel like doing too much today, so we watched the Brewers lose their game. And felt sad about Prince, who was a stellar performer, and who Mom thought was one right up there with David Bowie. Two bright stars of the universe, gone back to the Universe.

Tomorrow should be sunny and Mom will go out and do some other shopping at the grocery store. They made it awful to get to Meijer as the entrance ramp Mom uses is closed off. The nearest one is miles away, so she will have to use a different route. This will go on for a couple months, which is not thrilling. But at least once they finish up the work on this area, it should be nicer. But it sure is inconvenient!

Wing hugs coming atcha!
