Simply Primitives Update

Another new round of offerings is online at Simply Primitives! Please drop by and see all that is new for May 15th!
I enjoyed lots of stitching time as we headed down to my inlaw's "ranch" in Texas. Sad to see how many trees they lost after last year's severe drought. They received a good rain when we were there and many of their neighbors took advantage of the wet ground to burn piles of branches and trunks from the many downed trees. DH and younger son practiced their firestarting skills and set several piles ablaze on the acreage. The piles smoldered for several days and had to be checked and consolidated every few hours.
The girls forage in the safety of their cage and usually provide several eggs every day, unless a snake finds them first.
Lots of good grazing for the cattle at this time of year.

I attended physical therapy today and can now bend my knee 90% but still feel like my knee "catches" every time I try to take a step. The therapist thought that would go away once I'm back to full mobility. Progress is so slow but at least PT isn't as painful as I feared or heard it would be.

So Beautiful!!! Love all the pretty flowers ~ such a great piece for this time of year!!!
What a wonderful place, looks so peaceful.
Congrats on getting through physical therapy with little pain.
I'm in physical therapy for cutting my tendon in my index finger ~ not to bad just feels stiff.
