1000 Places To See Before You Die

I don't know if anyone likes to travel, but if you do you should get this book. I bought it a couple of years ago and really like it. By no means have a traveled to even a 10th of the places mentioned, but it has definitely given me a list of places to try and get to. Also, the travel channel just started a series on it last night. I really enjoyed watching it.

Had a wonderful time in Disney last week. My neck survived it all and I think I walked at least 100 miles over the course of the week! :-) You would think that the weight would melt off with walking that much, but, alas, it did not. I think I may have even gained a pain. UGH!!

Stitching wise I haven't done much at all. I started on French Country - Apple by JBW for a wedding gift, but only have about 1/4 of it done. Will post a picture once I have finished it. The couple are doing their kitchen in apples.

I haven't picked up the French Country - Rabbit lately to work on the beaded edging. I need to get another pack of beads to do it and JoAnne's and Michael's doesn't carry that color. I guess I will have to end up ordering them.

I hate that I have gotten out of the groove of stitching on my train, but hope to get back into that groove before too long.

My son and I are counting the days until school is out. This hasn't been the greatest year and we will be really happy to get rid of one of his teachers. YAY!!!

I'm sure you had a wonderful time at Disney World! I hope your neck gets better soon! I'm not much of a traveler myself. I love staying at home. But DD and I have been talking about going somewhere and staying in a motel for a couple of nights - just to get away! Have fun on your travels!
