A Simple Woman's Daybook - June 29th Edition and a GIVE-A-WAY

For Today...

Outside my window... it's overcast, breezy and chilly today!
I am thinking... I might be a hypochondriac... I've had a sore tooth for awhile - had it checked out in March... the dentist said he didn't see anything and to monitor it. I went back in today because it had been bothering me again. Still nothing! X-rays and an exam showed nothing! Good news - honest dentist, healthy teeth. Bad news - am I nuts?!
I am thankful... that the hubby and I have finally found a dentist we like and trust - we both used to be terrified of the dentist!
From the kitchen... I'm not sure yet... I'd like to grill out tonight - meat, veggies, fresh fruit... maybe a dessert? I'll let you know!
I am wearing... blue jeans and a lime green, short sleeve top... thinking I might need a sweater, too!
I am creating... a pillow! I sewed(!) the cover this weekend, hopefully I will finish it this week. This is a whole new endeavor for me!
I am going... to make some banana bread today. I just decided. Ha ha ha.
I am reading... "If Grace Is True" by Philip Gulley and James Mulholland, "The Geography of Bliss" by Eric Weiner, "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert, and I'm doing "Reading the Bible, Cover to Cover in 90 Days." I really need to re-learn to focus on one at a time!
I am hoping... to see LOTS of fireworks this weekend! I LOVE the fourth of July!
I am hearing... construction equipment... still...
One of my favorite things... quote of the day calendars! Today's quote: "Every person's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers." --Hans Christian Anderson
A few plans for the rest of the week... meetings, book group, lunches with friends, youth activities, 4th of July fun!

Here is picture thought I am first GIVE-A-WAY! It's nothing big, but since I like little reminders to enjoy the moment, enjoy the day, and be grateful - I thought I'd pass on a little reminder to one of you, too! This is a pretty little magnet. Leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you and I will have a winner randomly chosen on Friday morning!Visit the Simple Woman’s Daybook, for more women's answers to these questions!

Things I am thankful for today:

1. A cool day - nice to put on a sweater again...
2. A good workout!
3. Getting some reading in.
4. Grocery shopping with the hubby - always fun and entertaining!
5. New recipes - yum! (Burgers stuffed with gorgonzola cheese and bacon and another blackberry cobbler - Mmmmm.)
6. A nice walk tonight. And a nice walk last night.
7. A beautiful sunset.
8. Watching the show, "Here Come the Newlyweds."
9. The hubby saying that he likes that I'm learning to sew!
10. Meeting some nice people from our neighborhood last night - Kris, Chris and Boomer (the dog - so cute!).

Try having a brother in law as a dentist...

How do you keep track of all those books? I can two at a time...that is about it!

Ah Megan, you're reading my favorite - Eat, Pray, Love! I enjoyed it so much I listened to it on CD this spring!

Do you just have sensitive teeth?

You are doing a lot of reading right now! Is that a summer theme? I've been reading a lot more since it started getting warmer.

Those burgers sound really good. Are you going to post the recipe? :)
