I was supposed to take the yogurt out of the yogurt maker before I left for work yesterday, but forgot to do so, leaving the yogurt an extra 7 hours or so in the maker. Thomas tried some and said it was still good; I haven't had any yet.

I tell this story because the yogurt maker was still on the counter when the parrots were released from their cages in the evening.

Stella flew over to the counter and started investigating the machine. Thomas had unplugged it, but the plate was still warm (not hot), so he put her on the plate. She really enjoyed it!Then he tried to put the cover on her, but she had no interest in taking things that far, so he didn't.
After work, I had to drop something off at the rescue, so I went up there. My boyfriend still has not been adopted (sorry the picture is blurry; I need to take a better one!):I hadn't seen him for a few weeks, so when he saw me, I was showered with kisses and his adorable voice saying "good morning!" He's one of the special ones that is so hard to not take home. I have to keep reminding myself we are at our limit, but I still feel guilt as he is always so happy to see me. We had the talk where I reminded him, once again, that he shouldn't bite people who are interested in adopting him or he'll never find a home. I don't think he listened. There were also several new greys who desperately need good homes. It's always hard not to take the greys home.

On the bright side, I got to play with a caique that was boarding. I know I have two caiques at home, but I just can't get enough of these guys! This morning, yet again, Calypso was so adorable that I left for work about 15 minutes later than planned as I couldn't tear myself away from him. I kept telling him I was going to eat him and then I'd scruff him a bit; he responded by fake growling, then laughing, then giving me a kiss. I certainly wasn't going to be the one to stop that game!

Your boyfriend's a cutie!

Last night we were playing with Audrey by putting an empty tissue box on top of him, which he loves because of the echo inside the box. Each time we put it around Audrey, Conner would start looking around frantically because Audrey disappeared. Once he found those cockatiel legs sticking out from beneath the box, though, Conner would calm down. He does not understand Audrey's fascination.
