I'm Grateful for all of YOU!!!

I feel ALL better! I passed the kidney stones and feel amazing now! Thanks so much for the prayers. What a difference it makes to have good friends that pray! 


I'm working on a Fall book but it hasn't quite 'come together'. I'm struggling to figure out the design and layout. But hubby put a new ink cartridge in the printer yesterday so I printed out some pretty Autumn paper!


A special 'Thank You' to Michelle from The Nest at Finch Rest for the gift she sent me this week. I won her 'Christmas in July' giveaway and she sent me a beautiful antique Christmas cup, Christmas tea, a little spoon and a sweet card. (I'll probably work that card into a book! heehee)


I'm always thankful for the Farmer's Mkt on Thursday so I'm off and running this morning. It will feel GREAT to GET OUT!
What can I pick up for you? Apples? Or bakery bagels? How about some corn on the cob?

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays.

Oh I'll have some apples my dear - this is just the right season for them. I'm so so glad you are feeling better - I've had kidney stones that were so big they wouldn't pass - that was no fun - but the kidney stone blaster took care of that - thankfully.

Your papers are so pretty - and what a great prize to win. Have a grand weekend ahead my dear.

I'm so glad you are feeling better, Diane...like you, I just am not a person who is ever sick much and when something is not right, I must get to the bottom of it! I have never had a kidney stone but understand they are terrible to deal with. I hope you come back with some yummy things from the farmer's market! Hugs!

All happy news today! Glad you feel great again. I would love some apples and have been looking forward to this year's crop since our nearby orchard has been selling what look like windfall apples for a few months now.
The fall papers are so pretty. Looking forward to your next creative book :)

Oh good, I'm SOOO glad you're better. I love Farmer's Markets. Didn't think corn would be on there in Florida now....it's still good here in Oregon.

BeachGypsy said...

Bacon! I want bacon from the market. ha ha ha LOL--I am craving bacon so that was my very first thought when you asked the question, ha ha. I AM THRILLED YOU PASSED THE DANG STONES!! Do you know how many you had? I have had so many bouts with those darn things and I hate them, they are the most awful painful things ever. So so so glad you are feeling better now, it is always such a RELIEF when they are out and done, isn't it? so.....what did you buy at the market, did you see anything interesting?

Blondie's Journal said...

I was unawares, but I'm so happy you are finished with this ordeal. I only have 1 kidney so I guess my chances of having kidney stones are cut in half. Ha, just a lame joke!

Gorgeous makings for your book! You are also making me anxious for Christmas!

Hugs,

Jane

Red Rose Alley said...

I'm so glad to hear you're doing well with your kidney stones. What a thoughtful gift from your blog friend, and the gold spoon is sweet. I WANT SOME OF THAT CHRISTMAS TEA! I wonder where I can find it? Your Fall book is going to be lovely. It's nice that you found a hobby that you like so much, Diane.
