Salsa is such a great little walking partner! Besides being extremely adorable, she's also very enthusiastic and always excited to go. That turns out to be just the motivation I need on mornings that I'm considering the lazy alternative of not going. She gets into the habit of it very quickly and almost expects it. If I say the word, "walk", she bounces up and down with happiness. Or, if she thinks I'm wearing some sort of clothing that looks like "walking" clothes or shoes, she gets excited about that too. How could I let that precious girl down?!
The trees surrounding our neighborhood are currently in an extreme bloom! They must be really happy with the weather or something because I've never seen them bloom quite this much! The ground, sidewalks, and gutters are covered in tiny yellow blossoms and pollen. And, the trees are buzzing with bees. Oh, and the air is very fragrant! Luckily, it doesn't seem to bother my allergies. Whew!
