Beaver Lake

Beaver Lake in the Ozark Mountains really is beautiful. Our trip this time was quite different (we went about 6 months ago as well). We knew the place, so neither of us felt the need to explore very much; plus, northern Arkansas has already seen the onset of winter. As you can see from the photograph, the trees were bare. Still, that carried its own beauty, I suppose.

We had two full days of exquisite rest. More than that, really. When we arrived on Thursday we had enough time for David to cook our yummy Thanksgiving dinner. Afterwards, we fixed a beautiful fire in the fireplace, something we never do here at home.

I'm so grateful for this little getaway time. We both came back tonight feeling refreshed and happy.

And now a month of hard work ahead of us! Let us begin!!!!

What a beautiful place to spend Thanksgiving. So glad you had a respite before the Advent push. Your therapy described a few pages back sounds fascinating. CCW

I'm so glad you had such a nice time. Stay rested, so you don't get sick during this busy Advent season.
