My Beautiful Bird

I got a female canary Sept. 6. It was the day after we got back from camping. I have had fun with it. I am sharing it with my mom. We still have not named it yet. My mom wants its name to be Pretty Bird, I don't know about that name. If any of y'all people out there read this post, help me with a name.

I think it was the day after I got her that I actually got it to stand on my hand and eat seed off of my hand...just for a few seconds. To get seed she would get closer and closer then scoot over, but sooner or later she would get close enough to take a seed or two from my hand and scoot over and munch on it.

The way I got my bird was I worked for Miss Star White. She owns a store called Fine Feathers and Fins. She sells birds and fish. She also sells bird and fish supplies. And a few odds-and-ends that she special ordered for people and they never picked them up. Like turtle food. She had frog food because she once sold frogs but they are all gone now. Anyways I fed & watered her birds and fed her fish. So that's that.

Oh yeah! This is funny! My dad bought me a mirror for our bird and it had a seed holder where you can put her treat. Anyway, she will fight with her own reflection. At least I think that's what she is doing.

I may write more about my bird later. Well, I've got to go.

Produce from our Garden after a Week of Camping

We went camping from Tuesday morning to Friday evening. The next day, after we got home, we went out to our garden and picked and this is what we got. We picked yellow squash, carrots, peppers, onions, zucchini squash, different types of cucumbers I think, purple cabbage, tomatoes, and cauliflower. That is quite a bit of stuff for almost a week.
