"Ohhhh Morris, you know that I've been waiting soooo long for this holiday!" Morris responded in his gruff but chirpy little voice..."Yes, Clara dear...I know and I'm just as excited as you to fly this coup. We've been havin' to work some pretty long hours for that tablescapin' fool of a lady!" Clara shook her head in agreement but in her sweet little voice reminded Morris that it was that "tablescapin' fool of a lady" that had helped in making their dreams come true. "Yes, yes...I suppose you're right, Clara" Morris answered. It was true, Clara and Morris had been working very hard and they were in much need of some R&R! They began to make their plans for "Holiday"! After surfing the internet for a couple of hours, they found the perfect Holiday destination...a beautiful Spa Retreat Getaway!!! "Chirp, chirp..tweeeet! Tweeeet!"...Clara sang!
"Ohhhh, the n-e-s-t egg..." just then Clara felt completely like a land lovin' chicken who had just had all of the flight knocked out of her little wings! Morris took a long breath and began, "You know, Clara darlin', you are the one who always says "Be thrifty...Be wise!" He reminded his little lovebird of their meager and humble beginnings. Remember when we just sat and sat on those shelves at Michaels....no one, not one person wanted to take us home! It wasn't until they marked us down to half price that the old tablescapin' fool of a lady bought us! We knew we could do it...we could bring that Spring Magic to any tablescape or vignette and we just needed the chance to prove ourselves! Why after she brought us home, we just sat on a shelf. Clara chirped up, "Yes, until the day she needed to add a little of that Spring Magic to her tablescape!" "That's right, darlin'...and we were showcased so sweetly...we were a hit from the get-go!!!" Morris said as he puffed up all of his breast feathers. "And ever since, we've been workin' on tablescapes and vignettes...we've worked so hard and we've pinched our pennies just to build that n-e-s-t egg!!!"
"I've got it, I've got it" Clara fluttered her little wings in excitement! She leaned over and clicked her little beak on the computer mouse, "Look Morris, a Spa Basket for Two! That's all we really need...a spa basket, a little birdie imagination, and each other!" Clara and Morris nestled one another so lovingly! "This could work" said Morris, and he clicked the "add to cart" button!
Uhhh hmmmm...I was wondering where that little Spa gift basket came from! The post man brought the box to my door...I unpacked it and set aside...I would ask my honey if he had ordered this sweet little gift for me! But before I had a chance to ask honey...the basket literally disappeared! Ohhh my...what on earth was going on?**
"Morrrisss...this is perfect! Just look, we have bubbles, bath scrub, bath gel, hmmm...massage lotion...and ROSES!!!" Clara chirped!
Clara leaned over and gave her little lovebird a big peck on the cheek!
Birds On Holiday
Spa Retreat Getaway!
I have a funny story! We went out of town for the Easter holiday. When we got home, I noticed that there was water all over my bathroom floor...in fact, there was water everywhere! It wasn't a huge deal...I cleaned it up in no time but the whole ordeal sure left me scratching my head!
I should have known....
"Ohhh Morris, I'm just having the best time ever!" Clara chirped, "Isn't this beautiful? I just love the beautiful aqua sea glass...and the water is so warm and bubbly! Oooh, I love bubbles!" Clara giggled. "Well Darlin', I just can't imagine a more perfect getaway! With a little imagination...and you...." Morris' voice grew soft with emotion.
Morris snuggled ever so close to his little lovebird. It was perfect! The dimly lit room...the scent of sweet roses...their little birdie getaway was certainly romantic!!! "I love you, Clara!" whispered Morris. "I love you too, Morris"!
Their love songs filled the air that night.
"I just had a silly thought" tweeted Clara. "I think we should drop our old tablescapin' lady a postcard. After all, she has helped us to make this wonderful Spa Retreat Getaway possible!" Clara took her camera out of the bag and told Morris to strike his most handsome pose! "Say WORM, Morris!" Clara sat the timer on her camera and hopped back to Morris' side...and with their best birdie smiles, they had a photo postcard to send to that old tablescapin' lady!
I just received this little photo postcard in the mail today! Those little birds! Now I know why my bathroom floor had water all over it! Hehe!!! I think that they owe me another tablescape or two...maybe another vignette...for all the trouble they've put me through!!!
They better get their little birdie hineys home!!! And that's all I have to say about that!!!
Well my friends, as you can see...we've had a busy week at my place! Or maybe I should say, that some of us have had a busy week...wink!
So happy that you came by for a visit today...sure hope that you enjoyed "Birds On Holiday"! This fabulously fun event was hosted by our very own Susan over at Between Naps On The Porch....you better fly on over there to see all that's happenin'! Hehe!!! There will be many, many different tales of Birds On Holiday that you won't want to miss!!!
PS....I sure am missin' those little darlings!!!
