Took pictures the other day, I liked the way this one came out. I have posted several new items on Artfire this week take a look.
Spring is coming. Two sure signs for me are the sandhill cranes that arrive by the thousands on their journey back north and the second are my daffodils peeking out.
The cranes are one of my favorite birds and there are thousands in the area. It is deafening to walk outside in the morning and evening with all of them either leaving the roost or returning. This was the first year we had our field in corn for many years and the cranes are feeding in my field too. That makes me so happy. Nick on the other hand really cannot figure out what to do with them.

I received a very pleasant surprise yesterday, Diana or as I know her Nightmaiden featured me in her blog. It always pleases me to see what others say about my work. Those who know me know I am over critical about it. You may check out the article here:

I went to the Dr. today and he prescribed Water Therapy for me 2-3 times a week. I love the water so this might be a great thing. He stills feels that I am improving and still have not hit an apex. He called me a Bulldog ? Said he had so many patients that are just happy with basic functioning and didn't have the amount of damage I had. I have already surpassed and expectations and still continue to improve. Told us today he never thought I would be able to touch my head to fix my hair. HUH? It has all become a strength issue for me know I need to work at functionally learning how to use my arm again.

Gotta run see you all tomorrow.

That is really wonderful that you are passing all of his expectations! You go girl!

Way to go, Bulldog!! Keep moving and stretching that arm's abilities!

I hope the cranes are still there whichever weekend we come home next. I love to stand underneath them as they fly over and listen to the rhythm of their wingbeats...of course, the first time I am blessed with a crane bomb on my head, it won't be so fun to stand under them :)
