Watch Your Step, But Don't Step On Your Watch

It's a terrible way to kill time*
(extra bonus points if you can identify where that line comes from)

Today was cleaning lady day so I took Scout out for an extended walk to get out of their way. It is a beautiful, sunny day, albeit chilly. We walked through almost all of the Planten und Blumen, the large park near our house.

Because we were trying to kill time, I stopped and let Scout sniff anywhere she wanted. We stopped numerous times (read: every ten feet) and there was a lot of sniffing. Many of the flower beds had just been fertilized and that was very appealing to a small dog.

And speaking of small dogs, we met two on our journey. Two women were walking their dogs together, one a dachshund and the other looked like a dachshund/corgi mix (or some kind of dachshund mix). They approached us and all of the dogs had a good butt-sniffing. One of the women talked to me and I was able to understand almost everything she said!
"Is this a girl?"
Something something "How old is she?"
"8 years" (I added an ending on the word year but it didn't seem to faze her)
"She is a sweetie"

There were many daffodils and tulips in bloom and it was very pretty. Now I'm hoping that a frost doesn't kill them off. And when we returned our apartment was nice and clean. Or as clean as this particular cleaning service gets it.

And good foot news. The support of the Birkenstocks seems to be helping. I'm still experiencing pain, but I don't have to limp anymore. Unfortunately the muscles tightened up everytime we stopped so that was a pain, but overall I think I'm making improvement.

It's one of the jokes told on the Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland. Or was, at any rate.

Glad to hear you are getting a little better. The man of the day is adorable, thanks for sending him over our way.
We will be seeing many tulips and you already have your preview. Ours opened last month.
Love, Mom :-)
