So hot!  
I got a bunch more writing done today. I may post some of it tomorrow for you guys. Part of the main story. Gosh it's been hot though. I wish cool weather would come. Notice I said cool not cold. You got to be careful what you wish for. It'd love for it to drop into the low 80s in the day and 70s at night then the house wouldn't get so darn hot.

Bullet is doing awesome! But I keep accidentally calling her Protist. I need to stop that. But that's always happened when I replace that special pet with a similar one. I called Tesla Phage for a bit there. And I accidentally used to call Daimon Joel. But so far Bullet seems better than Protist in that she's affectionate and seeks me out. Today was her first flight. I had her on the counter while I was filling bowls. Chris was on the main kitchen counter and suddenly she took off. We had not expected it. She got stuck in the chandelier and was hanging by a toe. Chris had to save her. Then she had a few other bad landings in the Halloween banner, the chain of the chandelier and on one of the curtain rods. But later today I was training her to fly to me and she was doing very well coming to my finger. So cool. So she doesn't fly like a bullet just yet. She's kind of slow actually and I can see the Gaus in her. I used to call him Helicopter Budgie because he flew so slow but flapped so fast.

Ok some Halloween pics now.

My gourd made of sticks and lights. I love this thing! I'm so glad Chris bought this for me that one year because I have never seen any again. There were also pumpkin shaped ones and I didn't get it. We couldn't afford it at the time. Too bad because the ones out now aren't this good quality. And Grimsly Manor lights up orange and blue. I caught it on a blue flash which I like better and it's reflecting on the wall.

Although it's blurry this is the best pic of the Ghost Lights I have ever gotten. They have different flash patterns.

Our front yard at night. This looks way better in person. My window is the left one and Chris's is the right with the jack o lantern. I LOVE the Solar stakes that are purple and orange in the ground. Next year I hope to have spot lights on the tombstones.

Close up of the Jack o lantern in the window. I like how you can see the light on the mini pumpkin outside.

So that's it for now.

Current Mood: Hot

Bullet is so sweet. Rudy used to fly to me, and sometimes I could even get him to do it on command. I hope she stays sweet and doesn't get cranky after bird puberty.

I love the stick gourd.

I will keep training her and hope she will fly to me on command. I reward her with pellets when she does it right. Yeah, I hope we make it thorugh the "terrible twos" ok. I want her to stay friendly forever.

Thanks. It's so neat. Wish I had a second one.

Today WAS very hot and the humidity seems to be back in the air again. I feel for you with no AC and hope it "cools off" soon to that beautiful fall weather we live for.

I'm imagining what it would be like to have a baby bird and teach it to fly to me. That has got to be one of the most exciting things! And to have her seek you out. So special. Until I met you and saw your posts and videos of your budgies, I never had any idea they would/could interact so closely with people.

Looks like you are ready for Halloween. Your decorations look great! If those are the lights I sent you, I am so glad they worked. I worried about that since they had been sitting here for almost a year. I got your card yesterday....thank you so much.

Yeah, usually outside temps don't bug me but that's when I have AC I just stay inside. Without it it's very noticeable. Yeah looking forward to the Fall weather.

It's wonderful to have birds that fly and come to you. Yesterday I was out flying my pigeons and they went SO high in the air. And I felt great because I had no fear of them being gone forever. They always come home and I know they're my birds. Birds are amazing creatures and misunderstood too. People don't know that some can be much smarter than dogs. The parrots and crow family are the most intelligent. I'll try to film Bullet flying to me. We'll see if she'll still do it today.

Yep, all my decorations are up and done. I'm so glad I finished early this year. I'm glad you like them. YES! Half of those are the ones you sent me. I finally have enough to go around the whole perimeter of my garden there. They did great and take AAA batteries. I'm glad you got my card. I thought those pumpkins were so beautiful!

Your Halloween stuff looks great! Annoying about the heat though :( I think the gourd is my fave.

Thanks. It's nice around the house now. Yeah, I wish it would cool down some. I love that gourd.

That's cool that you got some writing done. I hope it cools down for you soon - but not too much!

That's very good news about Bullet. I love her colours. And now she flies to your finger!

I love the gourd made out of sticks and lights. It is very artistic. I love your Jack-o-lantern, too. The outside of your house looks awesome! Do the lights in your rooms look orange because of orange lights or something?

Yes the story is coming along well though I'm close to the stuck point I haven't figured out in my mind yet. Yes cooler weather would make things so much better.

Bullet surprised me yesterday how she flew and is quickly getting better at it. She doesn't always come so I need to work with her more.

That's such a neat gourd. We put that jack o lantern there because it's the flatest one and fits in the window. I love coming to our driveway at night and seeing those lights. Yes, if I don't have my over head light on the room gets an orange glow which is nice.
