Well, its the weekend! And an extra long one for me! 😙 My work is having plumbing done Monday and Tuesday so work is closed those days! I lose hours, but I’m okay with it!
In some sadder news my canary Kyle passed away. 😭
Here’s a picture of him (among other canaries all that have passed away. He’s the yellow one in the middle. Though he’s more orange or was more orange when he passed. He had some Red Factor in him we think):
That brings myself down to five birds I think. And as a total in the house (counting the others that are my mom’s pretty much) er…not sure. Maybe around eighteen or seventeen. I forget how many cockatiels are left. We had quite a few since the two we started with had two sets of babies. But should be somewhere under twenty overall.
My love bird who I originally named Apple Jack, who we now call Lovi (she responded more to that name) was friends with Kyle. They had two joined cages with a barrier in the center and they often sat by each other and even fed each other. She apparently according to my mom or sister was at the barrier squawking at Kyle trying to get him to move. 😭 Poor thing! She’ll be so upset…and like my mom said pissed when we move Kyle to bury him later.
On the plus my mom doesn’t think he suffered. Well, first let me explain some things. He was quite old. Well, the date on that picture was 2014, so at least four years old. Canaries don’t live very long. Honestly he probably lasted the longest out of all mine (I had like six I think. Well with this last batch. I had some some years back as well). He was the third one I bought. So he was quite old. He was having problems with his poop where well…it’d stick to him and block him. My sister and me put olive oil in his water which helps (her bird has the same issue). He did get it off, but he was starting to look funny. My mom guessed he wasn’t seeing well if at all. His eyes looked odd and sometimes he seemed to have a hard time getting around and when he drank he stuck his head way in the water. Poor guy. Anyway, he died in the corner and my mom thinks he probably went to sleep and didn’t wake up. So, hopefully he didn’t suffer much. He was a pretty strong canary! I’ll miss him. 😭
On a little…less sad note I’m debating over some notebooks. I have yet to start a new bullet journal. Mainly because at Bullet Journal.com they’re out of stock. Same one I used last year. I wanted the one in emerald green. I was planning on getting that when it came in.
I was at Office Max the other day with my mom and I found these TUL notebooks. They’re bound with discs. They’re just so…neat! And you can add, remove, and move around pages. Sort of like a binder, but in notebook form. And it has all these neat add ons like dividers and such. I picked one up in this salmon color and some dividers.
Now here is my dilemma. Which to use for my bullet journal? By the way here’s a picture of em! On the left is last years bullet journal and on the right the TUL one.:
I really like the new one. If I didn’t have a journal/diary I was using I would use that for it! That’s my first instinct to use it for. But then I was thinking about using it as a bullet journal. It could be kept so organized! I really am not sure what to do. I asked my mom she said both were nice. Also that knowing me I wouldn’t be happy not using the official bullet journal. Can’t say she’s entirely wrong. 😆
One of my reasonings for wanting to use the official one is one of my stupid things. See, this year I decided it was a fresh start for me (like usual) and well…I have this thing where I have to start over stuff. Which is one reason I want to ‘start over’ and try the official bullet journal again. I know its probably stupid…just one of my stupid things. 😛
But…I may just wait for the bullet journal. I’m really still not sure. But I may just put this one aside for now. Though I do really love it and am excited to use it. May talk to my mom more about it…
Honestly tempted to buy another too for my next journal/diary too!
I know this is probably way long! Later!
