  Hi Laka!
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!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

Oh no, I just knew it had to be way more than a cold. So now your mom has that bacteria/bronchitis thing. many have that ... not fun. Have her get lots of rest and some chicken soup.
Take good care of her.

It was just another lovely sunny day of 91. Still no rain. Not much going on here. Mom went to the post office and dad worked on his truck ... boring! I chewed up some big blocks of wood. Now that is more interesting! I wish mom would leave my artwork alone!

  Hello Laka~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

Our weather is not the nicest with more rain coming, oh well, it is that time of the year! Dad has more of the same old thing today, he sure will be glad when he finally gets caught up! His vital numbers were great yesterday, but all those visits drive him crazy, he is a very private person! We got the sweetest phone call from Sugar and aunt Eileen, needless to say, we are very fond of that sweet family!

Hello. cool morning in Buffalo.

Dad busy cleaning, moving things, and getting things changed so men can measure front windows for much-needed replacement. The windows don't open and it gets oppressively hot here in the Summertime.

Those Quadruple-Berry Muffins were wonderful the other day. Dad knows how to make me happy from beak to tail.

I was very good for Aunt Maria on grooming day. I did flit across the room for a moment and landed in a plant [yeah - they laughed at me], but after that, I was still and patient for the grooming.

Oh no, mama Ruthie isn't feeling any better. I think you should call her doctor's office and say she needs some good meds. She can't go to work like that! Give her lots of wing hugs and beaky kisses.
I'm sending a big hug and beaky kiss to her.
Today was another sunny and warm day in the upper 80's. We are still waiting for rain. And, we had a new visitor. Bunni came with a bunny friend right up to our front screen door this morning. But, they didn't leave any Easter eggs or treats. I guess that's over with. They are very friendly.

  Hi Laka!
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,

  Hi Laka
mom limped down and picked up the last bag of leaves on hillside 2. then she had to buy a sheppards hook because when dad cut down the blue spruce last fall mom had moved a birdhouse from it to where she always hangs the hummingbird feeder. birds have made a nest in the bird house so mom had to hang the hummingbird feeder in new spot. after getting it in the ground and then getting the hummingbird feeder hung up a branch from the shrub smacked mom in the eye. mom didn't pay much attention at the time but now it is seeping and itchy and quite sickening. mom is loading both eyes up with eye drops and hopes it will feel better tomorrow.tomorrow she has to drive dad to have more intensive testing done on his eyeballs and he won't be able to see afterwards and its 35 mies away.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  Hello Laka~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

  Hi Laka
well mom over did it yesterday. she started on the 2nd hillside. she got 7 50lbs bag full of leaves. that wasn't the hard part. it was dragging the leaves up the hill that did her in. she slipped and ripped open her shin on a rock. she was so exhausted from dragging the leaves up the hillside she never finished the last bag. the blood on her shin dried and her stuck her jeans to her leg. the good news is their was no tear on her jeans. she was so exhausted she didn't even wash up afterwards. she just got dad his dinner and watched tv all night. Cori spent the evening pulling all the sticks and leaves out of moms hair. it was a dirty job but somebody had to help her.

mom was pretty sore when she started to blog for us. she did Coris first and just as she was about to blog for me a muscle spasm shot down her whole leg. she has had them in her foot and calf but never the whole leg. mom had to stand up and try and walk it off. today she is so sore she can barely move. then she was changing the sheets on the bed and because her leg hurts she shifted her weight wrong and heard a pop in her side which means she hurt another muscle which feels similar to a broken rib but is quicker to heal. then mom hd to go to the bank and try and set up a checking account for g-ma so mom can write her checks and the bank said their law department had to approve that. mom had all her papers proving she is power of attorney. she thinks the woman she talked to didn't know what she is doing. after that mom bought super giant bandaids with extra padding and struggled getting them unwrapped so she could cover her seeping shin after she washed it well poured hydrogen peroxide on it and then covered it in neosporin mainly hoping that might prevent scaring.

Paddy Cake has been leaving me alone lately and i was surprised that Piddy Girl flew over numerous times to visit me tonight and was doing her hop skip walk/

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!
We hope your mom is feeling better. It's no fun being sick. I know you will take excellent care of her!
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.

This morning mom said I could make a phone call. I got to talk with Jenny's dad. He likes to hear me talk. After that, I had my shower on the lanai. The sun felt good. Then, my parronts went to St Armands Key this afternoon. I took a beauty nap and was ready to go when they came home.

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!

both shout I DO ! I WANT PINEAPPLE CAKE ! Laka, always tidy, wipes her talons off before she eats her cake . . . Cookie on the other hand digs in like he hasn't eaten in a month ! !

hamdnhaoff, he says to mama Ruthie, who just imagines he's saying thank you or yummy . . . she ruffles the feathers on his head while he finishes.

OK, you two go back out to play - it's too nice out today to stay inside. And so the two bestest friends head straight for their zip line :)

  Morning sweet Laka & aunt Ruthie-from Jen & flock
...here's our daily vote for you! We are in for another gorgeous day starting with temps in the 50's and climbing into the mid-eighties! Unfortunately it won't matter much to us, dad is still not quite ready to venture out of our home by himself, but his time will be coming soon, dad said he will NEVER AGAIN complain about having to run an errand! For us in Rock Island, things are going swell as can be expected, we just wish our dad would stop pushing the envelope to quickly! Have a great Sunday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy peaceful home, see ya all tomorrow...

Eternal love & thanks from Jenny, Ms Lady Love, Angel Christy, & our daddy Chuck

  Hi Laka
Since you probably miss some voting days ... just put the date and your votes under it ... to catch up.
Today was a relaxing day in the pool. Tonight we watched Jurassic World. Mom & I love the raptor "Blue" ... she is our favorite.
For those that asked ... here in our area we have lots of wild hogs running around. They are a very aggressive and destructive invasive species. They can weigh more than 300 pounds. We stay away from them!
Have a greyt night.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Laka!
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!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  very carefully
Cookie shows pretty Laka girl how to stand on her swing and pull and push to get the swing going . . . pretty soon they're both going waaaaaaaaaaaay up in the sky !

Weeeeee yells Laka ! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee yells Cookie ! This is fun :)

Only all the swinging made them both thirsty so they hop off to see if mama Ruthie has any guava juice for them ->

  Hello Laka~
I hope you are having a great day. Cool, wet and windy here. Mom had to put the heat back up a bit in the bedroom to make it nice and cozy for me! Perhaps she should not have put away all that winter stuff!Hehehehehehe It was like daring Mother Nature to bring back the cold!
They have been repaving in my neighborhood. They got onto my street last night. They took a big backhoe and smashed the cement divider that goes down the center of the street! It was noisy but over quickly! They just smashed it and swept it up. Now there is just a yellow line there. Guess they'll be back after the weekend to pave it. Mom left for work right after they did it and she said it runs all the way up to the freeway~about a mile up the street! They seem to be moving pretty quickly!!
I hope the day is just fabulous!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥
