Bloggie Break!

I'll be taking a long break
as we are taking care of my gramma for a while.

I hope you all have a great month
and enjoy your summer!

Farewell to Cutes

I'm so very sad to say that my precious
Cutes (the blue one) was not a healthy bird.
I noticed that she tended to pluck her
feathers out, breathe with her mouth open,
and not like to hop around.
Today I noticed she had a red and puffy eye
and that she was itching it against the perch.
I called the vet and he said it sounds like she
had a respiratory infection and needed to be treated.
I don't have the money to take her to the vet,
so I had to exchange her for another parakeet.
(Thankfully there's a 7 day warranty on them.)
I felt so bad and sad giving her back and
knowing that she's suffering. :( :(

Now that I've been able to read about how to tell
if a parakeet is healthy or not,
I chose a (hopefully) healthy new one.
I was going to name her Cutes in honor of the last one,
but she looked like something different...

I love her white colors!
So I took to naming her Fluff.

So now I own Fluff and Puff.

Fluff is still a bit shy in her new home,
but is a great singer and loves Puff!
Puff is still as lively as ever.
He's such a singer too!

My New Pets!!!

After a long time of planning and preparing,
I finally purchased my own pets last Friday!
Can you guess what they are???
Lets see, some hints can be...

They have no fur,
2 legs,
don't lay down to sleep,
can be trained to say words,
have no teeth,
(but they can nip you hard!)
like to play with toys,
and can even sing and talk.

Also, they're really the only
animal I would want as a pet...

The blue female is Cutes,
green male is Puff.

They are so precious and cute!
They particularly like singing with me
every time I sing and play my guitar!
I love waking up and seeing them preen and poof up!
I keep them on my dresser so they can get sun.

But of course, upcoming is a few weeks
of taming and training.
I've been able to get Puff to perch on my finger
and to let me pet him and take him out of the cage,
but Cutes nips hard and won't perch yet.
Although she is getting closer to saying 'hello'!

Right now I'm borrowing my friend's cage and plan to
get my own cage after my next paycheck. (piano teaching)
Cutes somehow squeezed out of the cage yesternight
and my brother found her in his closet!

Also, I wanted to share a special event last Monday...

Happy (belated) Birthday Mommy!
You are such a wonderful Mother and friend to me.
Thank you for your love and care for me,
and for guiding me and helping me in my Christian walk.
You've always been such a great example to me.

"No man is poor who has had a Godly mother."

"The mother love is like God's love;
He loves us not because we are lovable,
but because it is His nature to love,
and because we are His children."


Well, I need to go finish making bread.
I hope you're all enjoying your week so far.

"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding
abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus
throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
Ephesians 3:20-21
