Violets are blue...and white...and purple...

Several thoughtful co-workers sent me this lovely basket full of three African Violet plants Saturday in anticipation of some (hopefully minor) same-day surgery I'm going to have Monday.

It was such a nice surprise! I took it outside in the natural light to get a good photo.
Also yesterday I received a big box of assorted nostalgia candies for baby boomers from the (ahem) 1950s. It was supposed to arrive Monday so I could have a treat after the procedure, but I've already dug into it since it is here on the counter.
Wax lips, anyone? Or how about a candy necklace?
...and lemons are yellow.

I'll surely have some good fodder for my blog when I'm done with this medical stuff.
I'm trying my best to make lemonade out of the lemons that life decided to give me.
