Look what came in the mail!

I received my Fair & Square block exchange from Vonna today. I love it! It is perfect. I love the colors. I can't wait to get started on Round 3!

I also am posting a picture of my African violets that I grow. I read that Mary Kathryn picked one up at the store, I posted to her that they were very easy plants to take care of. I am terrible with plants, I usually kill them before their time. But, with the violets, I've been amazed, they have bloomed 3 different times now. I'm very happy with these plants. They love the window sill. It's the best place for them in my house.
Thanks to all my well wishers! I hope to pass my stone soon. I'm drinking lemonade, I drank a quart of lemonade today. The doctor told me to drink it. He says it helps to pass stones.

I didn't get my floss yet in the mail, hope it comes tomorrow. I want to stitch this weekend and relax.

John bought a smoker today, he is gonna smoke a couple of chickens this weekend for me. That way I won't have to cook. I love you honey! I'm trying really hard to get better. My kitties and doggie have stayed by my side today. They know their momma is under the weather.

Have a blessed weekend everyone!

Vonna did a great job :)
Hope you feel better soon!! My FIL suffers from kidney stones, which in his case was a blessing as that is how they found the bladder cancer. I sure do hope you get some relief soon!
