Mom had always wanted a parrot, and if she got one, it's name would be Martini. She went to a local pet store with some friends and saw me. She asked for me to be taken out of the cage I was in and said "Hello Martini". I stepped on to her hand and it it was love at first sight! (:>.

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter Weekend!

I'm wishing you a wonderful weekend with your family and if they happen to be gone, then sweet visits with Lisa when she comes to take care of you.

Thank you for the kisses I know you share with me tonight. I'm here to share a bunch with you!

  Hello My Sweetie!
It's a bright sunny morning here, something that makes me so happy, and with feeling happy I also wanted to come chat with you for a bit.

First though I want to wish your Mom a belated Happy Birthday! I can just picture you giving her lots of extra kisses and cuddles on her special day. I hope she had an extra nice celebration. And mercy, I hope that rain storm didn't mess up any of her plans.

Another reason for being happy besides the sunshine is that mom has taken pity on me and allowed me to hang out in the big room again for part of the day. I was so happy yesterday when I got carried over to Alfie's cage and LEFT, I didn't make a peep for the entire afternoon. I'm on Al's cage again right now, raiding his foraging wheel. That guy leaves behind a lot of little seeds!

I'm wishing my flight feathers would hurry up and grow back in. They got trimmed back when I was being a very naughty girl and trying to bounce some of the bigger birds. I need them so that time in the bird barn is more interesting than just sitting in one place.

Happy Wednesday. I send to you a great big sunny ((hug)) and of course lots of conure~kisses

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

  Hi Martini
Thanks for liking my pre-derby hat. Soon I will have my official derby hat up.
Happy B-day to your mom, hope she has a wonderful day. I wish I could send her that necklace to wear. My mom wants it too. That was part of the pirate booty from last month.
The snow is lower on the windows now but still on the glass.
Today we had freezing rain, rain and snow the rest of the day. Saturday will be rain and snow. But, Sunday will be sunny and 40’s at least for four days. I hope so! Winter just will NOT go away!
Think derby and warm weather! It's pizza night at our house too!
Hugs

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a great day! It's been pretty nice here with just a bit of rain. Rain is normal up here anytime of the year so everything just goes on like it's not raining!
The mud slide was way north of Seattle and I live about 35 miles south of Seattle. It is just awful and no one expected it to happen. Mom has a strict rule about not living in a canyon or on the edge of a hill top. The views are beautiful but with all the rain we have something is going to slide eventually. Where we live is mostly forest and that is what mom loves ~ forests!
Not much going on around here lately. Mom and the kids went to see Captain America last night and enjoyed that. Mom told me about the poster for Rio II! I hope they get it on DVD quickly so I can see it. I love the first one and have watched it a bunch of times!
Mom is going to the market and to the library today! I need a new stack of story books to read! I read one everyday and I really enjoy it.
You enjoy your day!! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Good morning, Mr. Cutie!
Did you have sweet dreams last night in your shamrock tent? I sure hope so. Mine dreams were of this wonderful Sunnie who gives me this nicest good night kisses every single evening. You are simply the sweetest, Martini! I just love you so much.

Something tells me that if you and I were together in the same room, things would definitely get loud. But then too, I bet we'd eventually get all quiet and stuff as we just sit there and look at each other, admiring the top quality Sunny features. You asked about Jensen being noisy, oh my yes, he's about as bad as I am, but for shorter bursts of time. Zoren is the next loudest but his racket comes at a moment of panic, like when the hawk flies by our window. He gets in on the morning and evening contact call fest Jensen and I have to do. Kirby, he couldn't be noisy if you squeezed him! He's got a little squeak but Jensen and I laugh at how tiny it is. Paige is Kirby's new buddy. She's been with us for a year in April. She's so pretty — she's a Fancy Yellow-sided conure. There are pictures of her and Kirby and well as a third little surprise conure named Felix. He was an unexpected arrival to the flock. The three GCC together can't make near the racket I can, and you know what? I'm proud of that fact. Honestly tho, I'm not loud all the time, just like I'm sure you're not either. The other day I was out on mom's shoulder and didn't make a peep which she said was nice, and that her ear appreciated being spared a squawk right in it. As for being a part of a large flock, well, it has its perks I suppose but I assure you, there are lots of times I sit and stare out the window, fantasizing about what it must be like to be the one and only. *sigh* Speaking of flockmates, did I tell you that I've been a very nice girl to a pair of the cockatiels? They decided they wanted to lay some eggs in the bottom of my cage and guess what? I didn't mind them doing that! I let them come and go as they please, I leave them be when their under my papers and even let them drink out of my water dish. Sometimes I have to get down on the floor to do a little paper shredding but they know I won't bother their little eggs so they don't do that hissing thing that they do to any others that want to look under the papers. Mom tells me she's so proud of me for being such a sweet hostess to the 'Tiel couple. Of course their eggs are never going to hatch because, sshhhhhh, they've been switched out for fake ones. I think they've figured it out now because they aren't sitting on them as much now. In fact, today, they both ducked under the curtain between my room and the big bird room and went out there to hang with some of the other 'tiels.

Oh my, I've been rambling on forever! I'd best let you go. Thanks so much for the kisses you send me each night. I love them!

Kisses to you ~ XXxxXXxx

I hope you had a really great day! I just hung out and played with toys mostly. Mom and I sorted out some drawers and got rid of some stuff that we don't use anymore. It was fun to see what was in the drawers but there wasn't anything that interested me in there!
I hope you evening is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a fabulous day! I am having a late start today. Mom gave a friend a ride home this morning and he lives in the middle of nowhere!! Really! The city he lives in is called Kapowsin. There are only about 300 people who live there. Lots of horese and cows and roads that are unpaved! Mom had to drive very slowly because there are tons of holes all along the roads! It's only half an hour away but it's a whole different world out there! I could scream and scream and no one would notice! Cool!hahahahahaha
Enjoy your Sunday and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Hi Martini
Sounds like you had a nice St Paddy's Day. I haven't done anything new either. It's been so depressing with all the snow. We hit 180 inches for the season. The record is 183. We still can't see out the windows. There is still 3 to 4 feet out there! We so need a really good melt and soon. I have my flip flops ready to wear on the patio. That nasty polar vortex killed so many deer, turkeys and swans up here. I hope it doesn't come back next year.
I enjoyed a nibble of b-day cake today. My skinsis had a b-day ... she's a spring baby.
Happy Spring every birdie! We had a sunny day with a balmy 33 degrees. I hope it gets better and better.
Hugs

  Hello Martini~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Happy Last day of winter! Spring will be here tomorrow even if the weather outside doesn't look like it. We had some really nice sun breaks today but some really big downpours also! The downpours seem to happen when mom had to take the dog out or go to the market! She seems to be a rain magnet!hahahaha
Mom was off last night and tonight too. She is usually off on Thursday and Friday nights but the store she works at is having a big sale for Friday and Saturday so mom has to be there on Thursday night to get it set up. On Friday she will be helping with freight since most of the freight crew will be off. They did inventory on Tuesday so the schedules got changed.
Mom got us a lovely white cake with spring sprinkles on it to celebrate the coming of spring! It was yummy and the cat even had a bit of it! He's not a normal cat you know!hehehehehe
Happy spring to you all and I hope it's a wonderful season for us all!

I hope you are having a great day! Spring has sprung up here. We have had a bit of rain but the temps have been near 60 and the cotton wood trees are bright pink and the frogs are delivering me joyous noise every single night! Now normally I don't really like hearing those hundreds of frogs but since they are announcing spring, I will put up with them!
Mom went out to the market for a while and she is going to hit the library soon. New books for Sugar! YAY!!! We will get some dinner done and then I hope we can have more popcorn and watch another movie.
You enjoy your evening! I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Martini!
First, HUGGGGGGG and KISS~KISS~KISS~KISS

There, I feel better already.

So, is all the snow and ice gone now? Is it feeling and looking more like spring is maybe here? I was thinking that we were headed that way and then discovered the yard covered in white again, so know not to get too excited about the prospect of windows being opened up just yet.

What new stuff I have to share with you is not very exciting. In fact, the honest truth is, it's pathetic news. I got moved back into the conure room because, and get this, I'm loud. WHAT? Me??? I don't think so. I got told that my bragging back and forth with Jensen was going to cause mom to go deaf. And my bouncing the occasional big bird wasn't earning me any points either. So now I'm forced to hang out with all those guys, and Paige who is very bossy and tells me when I can and can't hang out on my front porch. I'm one not-happy girl these days. Sometimes mom feels bad for me and lets me go back out to the big bird room but I'm not smart enough to keep my beak shut and resist the urge to brag to Jensen that I'm hanging out with the big guys. Woe is me, let me tell ya.

What's new with you? Are you sleeping in a St. Paddy's Day tent these days? Something with shamrocks or little leprechauns all over it would be cute! I feel like one lucky girl because you still come by and share hugs and kisses with me even though I do a terrible job of coming by to share the same with you. Yup, lucky, lucky me!

Love you bunches, Martini!

Your girl always and forever ~

I hope you are having a wonderful day. I'm getting some computer time this morning! It's been way to busy around here lately and I just don't like it!
Yesterday we took a break in the morning and watched Catching Fire. I really like it! Lots of action and you know I love action movies!
Today we are getting a bit of cooking done and getting mom ready to start her work week. She is going in an hour early tonight since I have been told we are losing an hour tonight! I really don't see any reason that the time has to change! It seems to be working just fine the way it is!
Mom went to Petco to get my Higgins Sunburst and they are out of it again! They say the warehouse is out of it so there is nothing they can do. She got me some Higgins Safflower Gold and it sort of looks and smells the same to me. There are no sunflower seeds in it but that is okay with me! It's only part of what I eat everyday so as long as she keeps a big supply of apples I will be a happy zon!
Spring is inching ever closer and that is making the frog outside my window go crazy! It started with just a few of them but last night it sounded like there were about a thousand of them out there! As long as they are here to announce spring I suppose I can put up with them!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug as I waddle off!

  Hi Martini
So far, we are at 176 inches of snow for this season. But today was 28. We are so happy to finally be out of the negative temps. We haven't seen anything above 35 degrees this winter. They say that we will have a very long melt with colder than normal spring and a cold short summer :(
We had a blue sky and sunny day today. Water was even on the highway, a bit of a melt. It was 28 degrees and some people were walking around without coats! The parronts went to an art show and had a nice time getting out! Could this be a sign of better weather to come or will we get that last bad snow storm? Hmmm.
Have a good night.
Hugs

I hope you are having a great day! We are having what we in the Northwest call a "Trick the Tourist" kind of day! It's a day where the sky is blue and there are just a few white puffy clouds. Not real warm but you can't tell what the temps are from a picture! The tourist board runs out and takes pictures down at the waterfront to get people to come visit Washington! They are in for a huge surprise when they get here and it's raining for 3 weeks straight!
OH! I love it! So sneaky!hehehehehehe
Mom found a really cool screensaver of an amazon! The background is green and there is a really handsome amazon peaking at me from the right bottom corner! I have named him Wilbur and he is my computer buddy! She had to go get a new screensaver after she reloaded the programs!
The computer is working well and mom found a virus program, downloaded it and is running it every day! I just hope this never happens again!! It sure did take mom a long time to figure it all out but hey! She did it! I must say that I'm impressed!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's an awesome one!

I'm so happy that you signed up for the new club. We need to get at least 40 more birds to sign up. The i5 company is changing all the animal channels. They say that the clubs do not fit their new format. They are also the ones who got rid of Bird Talk monthy magazine.
I don’t like the sounds of the high wind or the snow sliding off of the roof. At least the rain is doing that for us. But in a couple of hours, the snow will be back. We had 34 degrees today with snow, sleet and rain. But, we are in winter weather advisory until Friday at 8pm. Stay warm and cozy. Hugs, Chyna

I hope you are enjoying the day!! You never, ever have to apologize for not blogging a lot. I don't get around as much as I use to either!!! Life just gets really busy sometimes!
As to your question about dad, I tolerate him just like you tolerate yours!hehehehhehe
If mom is not in the room I will let him get me out of my cage because I know he is going to take me to mom. He uses a perch to move me because I have bitten him on the neck several times when he tries the shoulder thing!
I tolerate the skin brother too. He is a grown up, not a school kid anymore and I make a huge fuss when he comes in the room. He will sit next to the play cage and tell me funny things and I laugh. Then when he leaves, I call for him to come back. Mom says I am a very contrary sort of bird! Since I do not know what contrary means I can just ignore that comment!hahahaha

I hope you are enjoying the day. Nothing much going on around here. I played with mom this morning and then growled when Merlin decided he wanted some play time too! Dad will be home this weekend but he's been gone 5 weeks so I don't think Merlin is going to forgive him anytime soon! You know how cats are! He figures that mom is the one around to play with him and feed him so he's become a Velcro kitty! At least he has gotten use to being fed with Mandy when mom gets up. The first few weeks he was waking mom up 2 hours early because he figured he needed to eat!
All the Easter stuff is up at mom's store and she enjoyed scanning it all. She said it cheered her up to see such pretty pastel colors and all the cute things they have for Easter. I think spring will be here before we know it!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

  Happy Valentine's Day, My Sweet Martini!
I would so very much like to be YOUR VALENTINE again. Today and forever. Having you as my sweetheart makes me squawk with happiness, I want you to know. There are times I'm loud with joy, I'm told you should definitely be able to hear me all the way in WV.

It's snowing here again! All the trees are decorated in white frosting, or so it would appear. Don't think a snow day was called though; it's just a light snow, with no wind and comfortable temperatures. At least that's what I'm told.

I bet the pink and red hearts on your snuggle tent are so cute! And even more so with you inside of it. :> (That's me, smiling at the thought.) When you're tucked in for the night tonight, think of those hearts as my love floating all around you. This little conure girl in snowy Illinois loves you dearly, Martini~

I hope you are having a nice day. My rain stopped and there is sunshine outside my window!!! A bit of a surprise but it is a welcomed one.
I know spring can't be too far off! It's not because of my sunshine, it's because there are Cadbury chocolate eggs on all the check stands at the store mom works at!hahahahahahahaha Yep! Only 2 short months until Easter so spring had got to be close! Right??
We spent yesterday cleaning off the balcony because the building is going to be pressure washed. They do it every year and it is a pain but at least it stays nice and clean out there. They said it had to be done by 8am and since mom doesn't get home from work until 8am we did it yesterday! So far no one has showed up and it might be tomorrow before anyone does but at least we are ready.
It's very noisy when they do it so mom puts the radio on to cover up the noise. I like listening to the radio anyway and it helps a little. I will have to do some squawking anyway because I am the BIRD! Mandy doesn't hear well anymore so I don't know if she will notice or not. If she does, she will try to get to the nearest exit and get out of here!hahahahaha Merlin, being a cat, will just roll over and go back to sleep!
Hope you are staying warm and cozy!
I hope you have the most wonderful day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hello Martini~
I hope this finds you warm and snuggly, and happily entertained. Keeping the chill away has been quite the challenge this winter, that's for sure. I wonder how many snow day He Who Must Not Be Named has been forced to take so far this school year. Kids are not going to appreciate having to remain in school through most of June just to make up for all the missed days this winter. I'm glad I don't have to go to school. I think I'd be in trouble all the time! Actually, I've been a much better behaved parrot here lately, resisting the urge (and believe me, it's there) to bounce somebirdie. I do all sorts of weaving back and forth but at least I stay put. Mom says I can act as tough as I want as long as I don't cut loose and go crazy. Fair enough, I guess.

What's new in your stretch of the world? What pattern of sleepy hut are you snoozing in these days? Maybe one covered in hearts or kisses! Speaking of those sweet little things, I'm going to send a few along over to you ~~~

Well, the storm that just passed by ... missed us! This is the first one to miss up all season! So far, we have a total of 12 1/2 feet of snow! Our high temps are in the teens. At least it isn't negative anymore!
Oh yes, we have a list going and if you are on it, you will get a copy. Send your name, sun conure and page # and you mom's name and email & address if she wants (most of us did) to carolgelfand@mac.com
next thing is ... did you know that as of fall 2014 we will no longer have a bird e club? The i5 people are changing all the animals sites to a new look. They will NOT have any more clubs. So, we are trying to get one going. Squeaky's mom has people working on a new site for us called "Birdie Village". At this time, we need to know if you are interested in joining. We need enough birds to get it going. Please let Sunny know if you want to be a part of the new club (this will be our club) nubinskis@aol.com

I hope this helps you.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Thank you so much for the lovely Hatchday gift! You sure know what I love to eat!
It's been an exciting day with the huge parade for the Seahawks. Mom let me sit on her shoulder while we watched it on the computer. It would have been fun to go but since there were a million people there and it's under 30 outside it was not a good idea for us! I still enjoyed seeing it on the computer!
It's funny how quiet the streets are around here! I guess most of the state went up there. There were 13 thousand kid's out of school just in Seattle so I know where they were! Hey! It's a history lesson of sorts!
Thank you so much for the Hatchday wishes! Mom is off for 4 days so we are going to have a very nice time!
Dad went back to driving over the road two weeks ago and yesterday he called and told us he got stuck in Kansas City. He said there was so much snow that the snow plows were sliding all over the place! He made it out of there this morning but he is going to Colorado so I don't think it's going to be much better there! Too bad we can't just load all that snow on trucks and take it to California. They could use it!
Enjoy your evening and I do hope it's wonderful!

I hope you are having a fantastic day! It's very cold here and we have snow flurries but nothing that is going to stick. It's going to be cold for the next few days but after seeing the East Coast and the Midwest, I can not complain! Mom will be off for 4 days so we'll just hang out in front of the fireplace!
I am sorry I didn't get around much yesterday but the internet went out. Don't know why and it's fine today. Maybe all those Comcast people were out celebrating the Seahawks win!hehehhehehe
I put a picture of Taima in my profile. He's the real Seahawk. Actually he is a Augur hawk because there isn't really a seahawk. He is very beautiful but I don't think I'd want to see him up close and birdsonal!
There is going to be a parade in Seattle tomorrow to celebrate the Seahawks victory. It's the very first time we have ever won the Super Bowl so I know most of the west side of the state is going to be there!

  Hi Martini
Hope all is well with you. Did you know that the bird club will be gone by September? They are getting rid of all the animal channels clubs. Are you on the list to keep in touch? You can just use your bird info with your mom's first name & email. We are trying to get another place for our online club.
Hugs

  Hello Martini~
I hope all is well and that you are having a wonderful day! I am so sorry I have not been able to get around for a while!!
I finally commandeered dad's laptop since he is on the road and doesn't need it at the moment! hahahahahaha
He is back on the road and on his way from Colorado to Phoenix so he will never know! I have been careful not to chew any of the cords coming out of it nor have I pulled any keys off! Pretty good for me! It's so much faster than the other computer!
Brother found a virus on the other computer but they can't get it deleted. It's one of those viruses that don't die easily! Mom really thinks that we need to reformat the whole thing, but the skin brother says that should be the last resort and he'll keep working on it!
In the meantime, I'll be using dad's laptop today. The down side is that the laptop has to go on the dining room table and the cat food is out there! Have you smelled that stuff? It smells like a dead fish!!!! Mom says it is a dead fish!hahahahahaha How can they eat that stuff?? Oh My Goodness! I always knew they were weird little creatures!
Have a wonderful day and I'll try not to be gone so much this time! You enjoy the day
Stomping out a vote and sending Hugs your way!
With lots of love~Sugar

  Hi Martini
How is the water problem doing? I hope it's all fixed by now! That was horrid!
We are up to our * in snow. We are well over 110 inches so far this season and 3 feet on the ground right now.
It was a rough holiday with a couple family members rushed to the hospital. We almost lost my G-ma (dad's mom).
The BC says they will delete our club in September. They will put up their new site but NO clubs, so sad. There is a FB site that everyone has signed up (private site). If you want to join that just in case we can't get any other place for our club, just let Pico #30737 know.
Sorry every bird, this is going to be fast blogs tonight. I’m trying to catch up.
UPDATE: G-ma is doing very well and might come home this weekend or next week for sure. They will be keeping an eye on her heart problems. Her broken shoulder is healing very well.
The other day, we woke up to -22F degrees, I don’t want to know what the wind chill was … BRRRR!!!!!
I think this time the Polar Vortex wasn’t as bad or, I’m getting used to it?
Will winter ever give us a break this season????

  Hello Again There Mr. Handsome
I see you there, hiding under the papers! And ooo! Look! Dried fruit to nibble on. Mind if I join you?

It does sound like the weather is making it tough for kids to get an education this year. I think there's been a number of days the school bus didn't go by my house for one weather-related reason or another. When it's -4 out, it seems scary to send little people off to school. Glad I don't have to stand at the end of the snowy drive for a big yellow box to come along.

How could such a pretty girl like me be so bad? Oh my! Easily! I just can't take it when I see some other bird perched on MY mom. Drives me nuts. That's really the only time I behave badly, when I think somebirdie else is going to get attention that I should be getting. Mom went to pick Kelly up yesterday and I made ever effort to stop that from happening. Sadly, because these wings are just no good anymore, I fell quite short of my goal (Kelly's back) which was SO embarrassing. It takes me forever to hike all the way back up somebody's cage, shuffle over to the braided rope that hangs down from the elevated perches, up that rope and then across all the branches and dowel rods to get back to my favorite place in the bay window. But it was WORTH all the work. I'm so glad you still love me even tho I'm a pill of a conure sometimes. It's wonderful to have somebirdie that understands me.

Sharing a kiss or two... or three

Your bad girl, Riza

  Hello Martini
I wondered where you were. Do you know there is a BC page on FB now? There is also a Kissing Booth there my Dad set up. They are privet groups so you have to be invited to join.

Has your Mom listed your flock on the list of birds on the BC? That way we can all keep in touch when BC shuts us down sometime this year.

  Hello My Sweet!
I'm so happy to hear all is well with you. I saw in one of the papers on top of Saber's cage where some part of WV is dealing with water shortages due to a disaster. I was so hoping it wasn't YOUR area having that trouble. Too much snow is a much better problem than no water! I'm sorry you're stuck hiding under your papers while school is out though. Good thing you've got those snacks hiding there with you! It snowed here last night and with all the crazy, howling wind, there's drifts as far as the eye can see. I look out the window and find it hard to believe there'll come a day I'll be hanging out in the yard once again. Right now it looks rather hopeless.

Because I was a bad girl one too many times, my flight feathers were trimmed back, rendering me a walking parrot. Now to get around to all my favorite perching places I must shuffle along the dowel rods that mom had to put up to connect all my hangouts. I'm reminded often that if I could just resist the urge to bounce other birds, I wouldn't be doomed to all this walking. Don't hold your breath, mom. Thankfully, I'm not tempted to pounce Alfie and he's still nice enough to let me hang out in his cage whenever I want to.

I am, at this moment, perched on mom's shoulder, watching Kelly hike up and down the circular stairs. Ooops! She just flew over to the chair where the dog is napping and is now thinking about pulling Heather's tail! It's nice to see other birdies besides me getting into trouble!

Sending you lots of kisses and toasty warm hugs~~

XOXOXOOO

Your girl, RIZA •v•

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are all having a great day. I'm just getting to my apples and hazelnuts this morning. Well, it's actually afternoon.
Mom was up for a long time yesterday so she slept in this morning. I was up with her so I slept in too! Mandy and Merlin sleep a lot so they didn't really notice the difference. We have the fireplace on and are nice and cozy.
The fog is still here! Everything out side is damp because of it. We keep our pop on the balcony when it's cold out side and the boxes are a bit soggy this morning. The gardeners are here mowing the lawns but it's so wet that I think it's going to be very messy for them!
Mom has to go to the library later after she drops Jennifer off at work. I know she need more cottage cheese for Mandy but she'll just grab that at the store across the street! After that I think we will be doing some chores and maybe later we can watch a movie together! I got to watch Monsters INC while she was cooking dinner last night!
The other big news is that dad got a job! YAY! Almost 3 years without one so it's a very good thing. He starts on Tuesday and I think he is looking forward to it. Cool!!
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Martini~
I hope your are having a great day! Do you live near where you can not use the water?? We don't know if the chemical spill was near you! I hope not!
I've been having fun playing with mom and snacking of course. She is letting me watch a really cool monster movie called Pacific Rim. It has robots and monsters! Too Cool!
I'm sorry I haven't been around much but the computer is still not working well. We have the files moved and we are just waiting for dad to do the reformatting. He's been busy so there hasn't been any time for him to start doing it yet. I sure am getting anxious about it! It is running very slowly and we can only use Google Chrome to get online. I hope I can convince him to get it done today! After that we have to reload all the programs so that is going to take some time too! Boy! Computers sure are a pain sometimes!
Nothing really exciting going on around here. We've been working on chores around the house during mom's off hours and watching the movies that brother bought after Christmas. I have seen Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel and now Pacific Rim. It's been a real action-packed weekend around here and I have really enjoyed it! I must admit that the popcorn is pretty good too!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I apologize for not blogging much this week but my computer is broken. We have been trying to get it fixed up but nothing has worked so far. We are going to reformat it. It takes some time since we have had to remove all the files and pictures before we wipe the hard drive clean. It took 18 hours for mom's files to be moved! We must have a lot of pictures!hehehehehe
I hope it will all be done by Friday and I can get back to chatting!
You are in my thoughts everyday and I really have missed being able to keep up with everything!
Enjoy the day and stay warm and cozy!

  A Snuggly Warm Hug for YOU!
(((hug)))

Yes, having somebirdie (you!) to snuggle up close to during these bitter cold winter days is definitely a must! It's been like -14 here with 30+ mph winds which is making the air feel like it's -29°. I feel so bad for our feathered cousins out there in the cold. Mom's been shoveling bucket-loads of bird seed, some of it even my conure-mix, out for the sparrows, juncos, jays, cardinals, and doves. We don't have a big variety of birds here but the ones that do come seem very appreciate of the easy-to-find food. There'd be no way they could find enough to eat what with all the snowdrifts everywhere. I'm SO glad I get to be an indoor bird! Awhile ago I was perched on mom's shoulder while she made up the 'tiel and 'keet rice mix and I was tucked in about as close as I could get just so I could stay extra warm. Tucked in close to you would've been much more fun.

The youngest son was home from work today too as the roads were simply impassable, even with a four-wheel drive. He spent some quality time digging in the snow, removing the drift that was up against the garage door. I could see him through one of the bird room windows, which made for a good reason to squawk. I bet you spent most of your day hiding under the papers so You Know Who couldn't see you. Wonder if he'll be able to return to school tomorrow?

Sending you two little kisses and wishes for sweet dreams tonight.

With love from your girl, RIZA •v•
