This is the time for calves to be born at the ranch.
I love to watch the mother cows interact with their new calf.
Mama cows are very attentive to their young ones as shown in this picture.
Watching the cows makes me smile!

I love the ocean. It is so peaceful but yet so powerful.
Whenever I get a chance to go to the ocean, I get a big smile on my face. It is the one place I can escape with my thoughts.
I feel closer to God when I am at the ocean.

I planted this beautiful soft pink camelia bush about six months ago. It wasn’t very big at the time; maybe 2 1/2 feet high.
It is now nearly 5 feet high and has over 30 blossoms on it.
It is gorgeous!
It is beautiful!
It is amazing!
I have never had a camelia grow so well in Northern California.
This camelia bush shows that it likes it surroundings.
I get to see it every time I walk out my front door or pull up in my drive way.
Everyday I look out it, I say “WOW! You are so gorgeous!”
Everyday I look at it, I smile at how well it is growing!

This sign made me smile when College Boy and I stopped to get gas on his way back to college.
Passmore, Arizona Union 76. The sign says “Passmore Gas n Go”. The first time College Boy drove through Passmore and saw this sign he immediately sent me a text message with a picture of this sign. He thought it was so hysterical. I think that is why it makes me smile….because he got such a laugh out of it!
So today, I add to my smiles bucket.
I just got the wedding pictures back from Sissy and New Hubby’s wedding. They brought a smile to my face. It was such a beautiful wedding day…and they are such a beautiful couple both inside and out…with hearts of gold! Glad to have them in my life. (Secretly, I always wanted more kids, what an easy way to have another son!)
