A Nice Start

Yes, I am still alive.

Yes, I am still knitting. Although only hexagons and ropes – I am such a boring knitter lately!

Yes, I am still too busy to blog.

Yesterday as we were walking down a street,  a woman tapped on my shoulder and said: excuse me! I turned to see who it is and what she wants thinking: I can’t help with directions as I hardly know where I am,,,, and she said: did you make your shawl? it is so beautiful! I was walking behind you trying to make it out,,, I thanked her and she smiled and walked away.

I was wearing my DayBreak shawl. It was the first time ever I wore it and the first time I wore anything knitted this year.

I thought it was a lovely start of the knit wear season, do you agree?

Look Who Came to Visit

Joe has some bird feeders hanging close enough to his window that he can take photos of his visitors. This is a frequent one:

Joe has quite an impressive collection of birds’ photos on these feeders and I may use them to decorate some future posts,  but today I want to tell you about a different visitor.

A few mornings ago Joe noticed that the level of grains in the feeders went down dramatically during the night and we saw some seeds spread on the ground under them. Joe suspected one of the animals who frequent the back yard but tonight Sam caught the visitor in action and Joe managed to catch him on camera:

The raccoon decided to climb to our balcony Saki's way!

He was very brazen:

Oh well maybe I can get to it from here,,,

He wasn’t bother by the flash light shining on him:

I will get to these seeds no matter what!

Going down the pole

or the camera:

See what a lovely manicure I got!

I think it is a good thing we kept Saki away don’t you agree?
