The Parakeet Post #8

hugs

Kiwi and Olive seem to have missed me while I was away, because I was showered with so many hugs and kisses when I returned. Fortunately, I managed to capture this adorable moment on camera (thanks, Olive). I am so, incredibly thankful for my friend who cared for them while I was gone. I am actually bird sitting her two beautiful birds right now as she attends her 5 week ballet intensive. Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled to see their best friends again, and I am so happy to have these lively visitors in my care.

I know it is a day late, but Happy Summer/Winter Solstice!

I also forgot to announce that I have completely redone my blog. The layout has changed drastically on the computer version, and I am super pleased with this new look! What do you guys think? I hope that you enjoyed this post! 🙂

Vibrant feathers gracefully float to the bottom of the cage as Kiwi undergoes her springtime molt. She poses for a photo, and I quickly capture the moment for this Parakeet Post. I love this beautiful budgie. 🙂

Reggae… Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled when I turned on my Reggae playlist this morning, and they chirped along in complete delight. This has always been their favorite music genre, and they never seem to get tired of summertime vibes.

Before I started to play the songs out loud, I was quite interested to see how they would react to my earbuds…. Unfortunately, Kiwi didn’t want to have anything to do with this little adventure, but Olive thoroughly enjoyed herself! I decided to snap a picture of this brave little bird to share with you all this morning. Happy Saturday!

Do you like Reggae? What are your favorite summer songs?

Tribute to Daisy

I never thought that I would enjoy performing this variation. Canary Fairy had always been one of least favorite classical ballet variations, and I never imagined myself performing it in front of hundreds of people. Surprisingly, I adored portraying this vibrant character, and I was upset when I took the final bow. My costume was glowing… My gold crown was shining…

This was such a wonderful Tribute to my yellow Daisy Bird, and I had a lovely time as the Canary Fairy in this weekend’s production of The Sleeping Beauty.


I am shocked to announce that all of the performances have finally come to a close. After spending over 12 hours in the theater yesterday, we were able to whirl through two separate ballets in one weekend. Each show definitely had its own challenges, but I think that is one of the most exciting things about performing live (you never know what you are going to get!) I am so proud of ALL of the casts, because they were all absolutely stunning. This was a fantastic weekend, and I am so fortunate to have been blessed with the opportunities that I had been given. Have a great week! 🙂

At times, we hug.

Sometimes, we are arguing.

Sometimes, we are laughing.

The relationship is complicated.

But one this is for certain…

I will always love my Family.”

studyfriend

I am getting through a few exams this week for school… I have to say, it was nice to have some help! Thanks, Kiwi, for making this morning a more pleasurable experience. It is never fun to take a test, but spending time with YOU is the best. 🙂

Happy Tuesday from many feathers of fun!
