Forgive Me, For I Know Not...

What I've Done!

Like a flash, it's gone! Lost in the ol' cyber world once again. Naturally this shouldn't come as a surprise to many of you as you are well aware that I rarely know what it is I am doing. I'm like that, spontaneous, quick witted yet numb minded. Or is that dumb minded? Either way that's me and here is the result of it all. Notice anything different? Yeah, me too. I lost my birdies flew the coup. I vaguely remember the sound of their wings as they rushed right past me for that great escape, and the last thing I remember is the butt chewing the gave me as they headed out the door. It sounded something like, "We told you we needed more millet and we didn't like the cuttlebones your hanging in our cage." All I could do was sit here, as a lost tail feather floated down landing in my lap, and cry out, pleading ever so loudly, "I'm sorry, please come back."

They never did come back yet, but they did leave behind a little memento or rather a reminder of their past presence. No not that silly, that they managed to hold 'till they got outdoors, at least I think they did as I haven't come across the white muck yet.

They left behind a picture of them in the form of a banner. Wasn't that nice! Personally I think it was left in order to taunt and tease me and be a constant reminder never to leave the dish of millet half empty.

(I swear I thought it was half full)!

To make up for the ever so present BLUE background that somehow took over I'd like to share two things.

First, a great video that I discovered while visiting one of my bloggy friends. I enjoyed listening to the music, but I must confess that I enjoyed watching the video the most.

Playing For Change | Song Around The World "Stand By Me" from Concord Music Group on Vimeo.

Second, I received an email from a new blogging friend letting me know she is holding a giveaway. What a sweet thing to do. I was elated that she emailed me and I'd like to spread that joy with the rest of you. Don't miss out on this ever so generous giveaway from Karen, of the Garden Chick. I know she'd love to have you stop by, say hello, and get signed up for her drawing.

Toodle-Loo! I'd love to tell you that I'm off to fix or replace my background, but that would be leaving you with false hope. I've got so many other things I must get accomplished. So for now, and for awhile, you are stuck with my lovely BLUE background.

Aren't I nice?

To make up for it just a tad more, here is a beautiful picture by a wonderful photographer, Silvie Ferizi. Enjoy!

It's so frustrating to think your making progress only to be found you've lost 3 hundred steps. I'm like that with my blog too, quite the scene to see me try and load a video, still can't get it.

Bad birds! Bad, bad birds! They don't appreciate a good thing when they have it!

You definitely had me laughing out loud and..... I kinda like the blue! I love the picture of the cardinal. That's my state's bird and I see them all the time and they still make me gasp!

Enjoy life because we all end up dead in the end anyway - and I definitely do not mean to sound like doom & gloom here! Don't fret about losing the birds. They'll be back!

You are so funny... it's the kind of thin that happens to me too! You made me laugh with your 'oh well!' attitude. That photo is stunning!

You are not the only one with this issue. My background won't load either as long as I have my follower widget in the side bar. Blogger suggested lowering in the lay out. Now my followers are near the bottom. If you vist my blog and read under the please stand by on my left side bar what's been going on with me.(too)

What an interesting video. I wonder how they put that together. And the bird is beautiful--the one in the photo--NOT your bad, bad birds that flew away.

Seriously, though, I do know how frustrating it can be when you finally get something to look the way you wanted it to, but you're not sure how you got it to do so, and then it disappears and you are clueless as to how to recreate it. That has happened to me more than once.
