Back from Mickey! visit to Disney was great as always! The first couple of days were on the cooler side with a good bit of wind. As Pooh would was blustery! But, after that it was hot (in the 90s) and the parks became very crowded! Whenever it would get to be too much we would head back to the resort and crash for a while and then head back to the park when it was a little cooler (near dinner).

Needless to say I haven't gotten any stitching done. Too tired and busy during the trip. And now that I am home I have been too tired and busy with work and trying to get back into the routine. Since I am a bookkeeper, you can guess that I have been very busy since the first of the year. Hopefully things will calm down after next week and I can get back to stitching again. I am so far behind on my Bride's Tree SAL!!! Not to mention my train project!!! Yeesh!!!

I just read a really good book recently by Debbie Macomber called "Between Friends". It was such a good book. I couldn't put it down. It was written unlike any book I had ever read. Not in the typical format at all! It was all a series of newspaper clips, notes passed in classes when the girls are young, diary/journal entries, letters, receipts, tickets, cards, emails, etc. It was like finding a box in an attic of correspondence and snippets from someone's life and putting it all together. Great book!

One of the stitching blog groups I am in had this interesting question this week: "What is your least favorite household chore?" Hmmm...I can't say that any household chore thrills me, but I really don't like folding clothes. I don't mind washing them and putting them up, but for some reason folding them bugs me! I also don't like dusting! It's amazing how dusty things can get in a week!

It sounds like you had a good trip - nice to hear the weather was fine as my work colleague is off to Florida on Thursday - he will be pleased!!

I agree with the clothes folding - I don't mind the ironing bit I just hate then having to put them all away lol!!

Thanks so much for your well wishes for our anniversary.
Glad you had a great Disney adventure. We went down in '05 for our son's graduation, but we mainly went to Universal and one day Epcot.

Have read that Debbie Macomber book too. I loved it and finished it in short order. I did like the way it was written because it was different.
