"Fall has always been my favorite season. The time
when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature
had been saving up all year for the grand finale."
It still feels like summer here, temperature-wise. The weatherman says we may see some showers later today and tonight and then we'll cool down into the 70's tomorrow and the rest of the week. Can't wait.
I had to go to the clinic yesterday to get my blood drawn in advance of my visit to the doctor tomorrow. Here's hoping my A1C number isn't off the charts. I'm afraid I haven't been very good this month with watching what I eat. Not to mention I've put away a fair amount of iced tea...with sugar, of course.
I'll blame some of the events of September for my pigging out.
BG celebrated his 69th birthday this month. We celebrate with food. ☺ My guy is planning to keep working until he's 70 (sigh), so that means one more year to go. He did the mandatory pole top rescue recently. For new readers, he's been a lineman for a rural electric co-op for 40 years. I'm happy he loves his job, but I'm ready to have him home to run around with me before we get too old.
Above are a few of the things we saw in Branson. The view of the lake is from the deck of our condo. The man-made waterfall is at SDC. We saw some beautiful sunrises from the deck each morning and the moon rising each night.
Our son joined us for a couple of days before he had to fly to California for a meeting. One evening we played miniature golf. I actually played really well this time and was only one or two holes behind the men. Brett won in spite of BG's trash talking. It was fun and I laughed so hard when the Big Guy's ball went in the water after all that talk about how he was the champ and was going to win. I tried to help out with "don't choke!" when he was getting ready to hit the ball. lol!
We ate a lot of good food in Branson and tried out a new to us restaurant. Have you ever eaten flash fried spinach? It's light and crispy, almost melts in your mouth. I liked it, but BG said he wasn't sure he'd want it again.
We went again to Salt Grass for a mid-afternoon meal one day. It's at one end of the Landing. Afterward, we walked to the other end to the Bass Pro shop. Along the way, I stopped in at Kirklands to look around. I was tempted to buy a couple of fall items, but I didn't want to have to carry them around. Actually, I was tempted by a lot of things there, I love that store.
A lot of napping was done while on vacation and I really enjoyed just sitting on the deck and watching the boats on the lake. Our condo is on a point of Table Rock lake in a wooded setting. It was so quiet and peaceful. I'm already missing being there.
It's time to push the Publish button and go run a couple of errands and do some laundry. Hope your week is off to a good start and you're enjoying some nice fall days!
Happy Tuesday to you!
