Thankful Thursday - 7/9

5 Things I'm thankful for this week:

1. I'm enjoying the summer with my girls! Between the pool, play dates and season passes to a theme park, we are having a great summer STAY-cation.

2. Free books. Reviewing books is becoming a great way to get free books this summer. I'll be reviewing one tomorrow, and received another in the mail this week.

3. A new roof. Roofers are busily replacing our roof, which had started leaking. They are doing a great job and I'm thankful to have it repaired.

4. A cook-out with friends. My girls' best friends are sisters. So we had the parents over for dinner Sunday night. It was a lovely evening, and I'm so glad to have my girls have such wonderful friends.

5. A Movie Date with my sister. We watched Pilgram's Progress together, and she brought me a funny book about Germaphobes. I could have written it. (Why didn't I? Note to self: Think outside the box.)

What are you thankful for this week?

Great list Kelly. So you are a germaphobe? I am a hairaphobe. Hair makes me gag for some reason. Oh and a bugaphobe too, haha.

Re: #3 - If it didn't rain while your roof was being replaced, add that to your thankful list. A few years ago we had our roof replaced and it stormed BIG time the first night...Ended up having to replace part of the ceiling INSIDE the house. Grrr.

Love your Note to self. *grin*

Awesome list of things to be thankful for:) Thanks for sharing. Your "germaphobe" book sounds interesting. Glad your week has been filled with friends, family, and roofs (and germs):)

One thing I'm thankful for is that the rain stopped last night before our SR.High boys from church came over for a cookout! They were going to be outside no matter what!!!

Glad you're enjoying your stay-cation!

If germaphobe describes you, then you probably wouldn't enjoy my job! Green noses, bathroom accidents and the occasional vomit! If you ever need to lose weight, try eating lunch with 20 four-year-olds!

I love that your list is family oriented! Great time with family is sooo much fun!

Does your germaphobe book mention anything about putting "tough as plastic" cheese in your mouth. *wink* *grin*

Am reading your Thankful Thursdays on Sunday- I relate to the list. You are a great book reviewer, btw. We got a new roof this summer, too. And I share your phobia of germs. I'd like to read the book.

Here's hoping you'll have a good week coming up-
