This weekend I think I lost my mind completely. By Sunday, I had a table, some chairs and a parrot. I left the house to get gravel for the top of my parlor palm in the kitchen, that’s it….gravel. Which took me to Petsmart because the gravel was cheaper in the aquarium dept. Which had me walk by the Sun Conure. Which made me think, “I always wanted a Conure, why did I get the cockatiels?” Which led me to ask the attendent about the Conure. Which had him point us in the direction of Petland because they had better cages for the conure. Which sent me to Petland where I had found……..my bird. It was obvious he was mine because he ran down the ladder and fell over himself to get to the glass where I was sitting. Meet Charlie…
Charlie is a Pineapple Green Cheeked Conure. He is very intelligent. In fact, he has even managed to train Jake (12) how to play fetch. Jake loves to retrieve things Charlie throws, over and over again. Charlie is just a couple months old and still has to work on his manners a bit.
The day after we found Charlie, I took Mr. C. to Arhaus Furniture which is my DREAM store. I go through and make little mental notes on the furniture I want when the kids won’t destroy it. When I won’t have to put the furniture together with the included hardware. When the legs won’t need cardboard scraps underneath to even out the wobbles. You know, that furniture. That led me to learn that the dining table I have been salivating over for a decade was on sale for half. Here it is, yep it’s so cool they even have video on it.
What??!!!! Seriously???!! And that chick was slick. She even found six chairs that were cut down by 1/5 the price. Pictures will be shown on delivery of the dream piece. That set will be here June 20th. So exciting. Of course once I got home I had to explain to the children how many limbs they will be missing if they ruin my dream piece. That conversation took at least twenty minutes, with video on how they make the table.
For those who are interested, here’s a video on how they make the copper table. It’s fascinating to me.
