Yesterday was such a beautiful day I worked all afternoon in our back garden. I have a small pond, the kind with the rubber liner, which is about three feet deep, twelve feet long and eight feet wide. I haven't cleaned it for a couple of years, so decided to do it this spring. Water was drained, plants, fish and a toad were taken out. There was a lot of decaying matter in the bottom so I got rid of that. Refilled pond with clean water, connected the pump for the water fall, trimmed all the dead leaves from the plants, and put them back in. Conditioned the water to rid it of the chlorine and then put the fish and toad back in. They all seemed to be happy with the spring cleaning all done. Last night I couldn't understand why my arms and neck felt a bit warm, I was sun burnt. I didn't even think about putting on sunscreen, will have to remember next time I am out for a period of time.
Today, well I am feeling the results of all the work I did yesterday, however, once I got myself moving it wasn't quite so bad.
We are to have record high temperatures for the next couple of days, up into the low to mid 20's C. It appears we have missed spring and gone right into Summer. I shouldn't say that as we can still have some cold temps in April.
I did do an hours sewing last night, I have a tendency to start making mistakes when I am tired, so I put it away for the night.
Have a happy Easter everyone.
