I am eating breakfast with my girl this morning. Generally, we eat breakfast all together, and then let the birds out, but today I was up early. I had two eggs, half an avocado, and a big bowl of fruit! Nobody else was up so I sat by Mallorn's cage and finished up my avocado, put on some music, and let her out. It's so relaxing just sitting here, sprawled on my floor with my fruit, TB, and my little princess looking over my shoulder. She is now sitting right where she can see me, grinding her beak and occasionally cooing like Tilda.
It's snowing out. There's s thick, fluffy blanket outside covering everything. But in the house, it's warm, and sparkly. We hung some Christmas decorations yesterday and the house is alight with festivity.
I took a break from writing this because Mallorn came down and preened me a little bit. We have some bonding time every day, and the Princess makes sure I always look the part. She is my best friend and I can't express how much I treasure every moment I spend with her. She is so smart, has such a personality, and I love that she trusts me so completely.
I just had to share this because it never fails to amaze me how special we are to each other.
The family is down and cooking, so I just asked her to please go back into her cage and she did, from all the way across the room. Of course, she got millet for her efforts but not too much--I told her that princesses need to have a healthy breakfast.
This morning was magical--how was yours?
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
It's sounds like a perfect morning! My mornings always start with letting Rio out....she's always waiting, hanging on the side of her cage, peaking out from her cage cover. She's sitting on my knee right now preening herself. Thankfully we have no snow yet....its actually raining! Christmas tree is up and decorated, thankfully Rio has no interest in it (for now)! I hope everyone has a great day!
Every morning I wake up to two very hungry fluffy faced cats who meow the moment my alarm goes off. I feed them and give Willow her pain medicine (she's 19 and has arthritis). While the cats are busy I wake up the budgies. I sing their good morning song, and Sweetie sings to me while I get their breakfast ready -ABBA seed, Harrison Super Fine pellets, some fresh vegetable (today it was carrot sticks and broccoli) - and they munch away while the cats get settled in the bedroom (they are not allowed to sleep in there overnight) and while they take their naps on the bed, I lock them in so I can let the budgies free safely while I check my internet things and study a bunch. They love it when I do my readings because I'll read aloud to them until my throat won't anymore, haha
Most mornings I get up and let the dogs out, feed the birds, let the dogs in, and feed them. Today, I also got to let Monkey fly around for an hour. The budgies have got their cage open. Gilbert is dozing inside his cage and Elsa is beak grinding on top of the cage
Awww what a lovely heartwarming update it's definitely made me smile. You and Mallorn have a truly special bond.
I love your description of the snow - I really miss snow!! it's quite warm and sticky here and for the past ten days or so I've been keeping Noah cool with refrigerated water accompanied by icecubes and draping frozen tea towels that I had soaked in water and left in the freezer over his cage. On some days I keep the blackout blinds closed and just leave the light on and I'm being extra vigilant with his water and food changes and cleaning his house more frequently during the day.
I wonder what Noah would do if he encountered snow? (I love snow it's just so pretty and so much fun )
Star you had a magical Mallorn morning indeed!
I'm so glad you had wonderful quiet time to spend with your precious princess today.
How lovely to have big fluffy snow...
Believe it or not, it was in the low 60's here in Virginia today. Now we are having a light rain this evening.
I spent all day decorating the house for the holidays, but I did take a break and sat out on the front swing for awhile so Kylie could lie in the neighbor's liriope.
That is Kylie's very favorite thing to do now and he only wants to be outside if I'm actually outside with him. I try to give him the opportunity to be out in it for a little while everyday unless the weather simply won't permit it.
Now the house is decorated, the tree is up with all the beautiful bird decorations and seeing it makes me smile.
I played Christmas music all day while I put up the tree and other decor and Skipooterky sang along. Pedro and Poppy were chiming in from the upstairs bathroom where they have their out-of-cage time.
Peachy "helped" me decorate the tree until he flew upstairs to bother Ted.
After that he had to go into the downstairs cage for a little time-out because I wasn't able to keep tabs on him and once he decides to annoy Ted it becomes a "game" for him.
