Breakfast Joys

The horses came to breakfast this morning.  The pictures I took are not great but it is important to document their visits and antics.  They "come to breakfast" every couple of weeks, sometimes staring at us over the fence in a sad faced plea for carrots or apples.
The other breakfast photo is one of the new wave of hummingbirds that have stopped off.  Surgical nurse and wild life photographer DS#3 set up a table arrangement for me consisting of a tripod, camera and attached scope directed at the hummingbird feeder.  I have not succeeded in adjusting the scope properly but I'm working on it.  One of these days you will be wowed by a crystal clear picture of a hummingbird up close and personal. 
This week I've been too tired to even knit in the evenings.  After dinner I just sit and gaze at the TV feeling like I can't lift my arms to read or knit.  Tax season is almost over and I know that I will survive another week and a half but that's not much comfort.  I did pick up the Easy-Peasy shawl in the office and it seems to be getting longer, but I believe this is going to be one of those projects that refuses to grow no matter how much knitting I do on it.  Then one morning I'll wake up and a finished shawl will be waiting.  I'll know the knitting elves have been at work because none of the knitting I have been doing resulted in project completion.  Do you ever have projects that defy completion?

On other projects, bag is getting longer, sweater is inactive, socks are resting and cashmere shawl is...crochet (what more can I say?).

Life is good!

I miss having horses demanding apples and such...

There's not enough time in the day to discuss projects that defy completion. Hem.

And hummingbirds! wow. DH is a doll for the set up!

I am so not making progress on my keyhole shawl..but I will persevere.

Happy Easter my dear friend

I feel like that most nights so I don't knit much at all!
