It's been a while since my last post and although I strive to be upbeat, I also believe in keeping it real. So I'll begin with saying the past few weeks haven't exactly been my finest, healthwise. I've struggled with vertigo, a bad cough which is still lingering and various other ailments.
I even had to go to the Emergency Room this past Saturday night. You know how it is, something always seems to happen over the weekend or at night when there aren't any doctors available.
I think I'm on the upswing now even though some things still need to improve. At least there were a few good days here and there the past few weeks and we took advantage of them and went to Branson.
Silver Dollar City at Branson is a must-see for me during the Christmas season which begins the first weekend in November. They had added 1.5 million lights to the already 4 million this year and it was just fabulous. I love Christmas lights and I was like a kid again gazing in awe at everything.
There were several archways covered in lights like the photo above.
As I wasn't feeling the best, I didn't try to walk down the hills toward the back of the park as in years past, but I think I saw most of the new lights as they seemed to be mainly in the mid-park section. Do you see the suspended tree in the photo above?
I can't begin to describe the beauty of SDC decked out for Christmas and if you ever go, be sure to stay after dark as it is indeed a sight to behold!
Our condo already had a tree up and decorated. The weather was nice during the time we were there and just chilly enough at night to have a fire going in the fireplace.
One morning the fog was still hanging over the lake and it made a pretty sight. I love fog if I don't have to drive in it!
Here's a photo taken from inside of the fog on the lake. I think this was the morning we were leaving to go back home. You can see by the shadows on the deck that the sun was breaking through the fog.
I love Branson but it's always good to get home and back with our sweet fur-kids. Stormy missed us and she has been keeping close to me when she knows I don't feel good.
My Christmas trees are still in the boxes just waiting to be opened and put together and decorated and I'm behind on shopping too. It will get done even if a bit late this year. Our daughter wants to have Christmas dinner at her house this year. We'll have our gift exchange on Christmas eve here.
Hopefully I'll get back to visiting and posting more regular soon. I do hope all of you are staying well and having fun getting ready for the holidays.
Happy Tuesday to you!
