My friend Trent have a Weekly Smile post every week, where he share positive things and thoughts, and encourage others to do the same on a weekly basis. To get the good energy flowing. I’m all in for that! There’s so many things to be grateful for, small and big things. I’m going to try to post a Weekly Smile in the beginning of every week. Try..
This is my first one. I’m so grateful that this spring was colder than usual for Las Vegas. I’ve been worried about the heat, a lot, but so far the weather have been very manageable. I have low blood pressure, and when it’s hot I struggle more than usual. With this cooler weather I feel great.
Cold, and beautiful.
The photos in this post are taken at Mount Charleston, about an hour from here, the same day I took the photos of the wild horses, ten days ago. It actually snowed that day! One hour from Las Vegas. The weather at Mount Charleston is always cooler than down in the city, but it can be crowded at times, due to the close proximity of the city.
View from Mount Charleston.
Mount Charleston is part of the Spring Mountain Range, and Toiyabe National Forest. Charleston Peak, at 11,916 feet (3,632 m), is the highest mountain in the Spring Mountains. Mount Charleston is located about 35 miles NW of Las Vegas. It’s a refreshing, green, alpine heaven.
Let’s see…other things that made me smile this past week;
- The people I love, family and friends.
- My dog, of course she’s family too.
- That my container garden is thriving.
- The fabulous day trip to Valley of Fire State park. (That I still have a gazillion photos that I haven’t even had a chance to look at. That excites me!)
- Making plans for next weekend, which for me is going to be a 3 day weekend, I’ve taken Friday off.
- Spending more time with my daughter have definitely made me smile a lot this past week. We’ve had several serious conversations that I feel have brought us closer.
- A concert with Sofia Talvik, a great Swedish sing/song writer last Saturday, put a big smile on my lips. It was extra special because it was my daughter’s first concert. I even exchanged a few sentences with Sofia in Swedish after the concert. I don’t get to speak my native tongue so often, it’s definitely a treat. What made you smile this past week?

I hope you have reason to smile a lot today!
