I think I’ll buy one of those inflatable children pools.
The weather prognosis’ has been interesting this week, they started by telling we most possibly would get lots of rain all weekend and the closer we came the worse it got, then suddenly last evening they turned 180 degrees and told us we would get sunshine all over the country with some clouds covering the sun now and again. So I wasn’t the least surprised that most of the day has been cloudy 🙂 🙂 🙂 It has however cleared up now in the afternoon.
I’m not complaining about the clouds though, it is so much nicer to mow the lawn if the sun doesn’t burn all the time. I always clear the lawn from dog poo before mowing, of course. But it seems my dogs have a meeting every Saturday when I mow, they all gather together and the leader, most possibly Hector, says that You all know what day it is today. Please don’t do anything when we’re out walking but if You have to just let go of as little as possible. Just before he starts mowing run around the garden and spread the poop as good as You can 🙂 🙂 🙂 It may be a silent mower but it is still a mower and they are evil and should be punished 🙂
I had to clean both the pond pump and the filter today after Sune’s many baths. Once my pond was clear and I could almost see down to the bottom of it but after his first swim it got muddy and almost no water passed through the filter. It took me over an hour to dig out roots and mud from the pump and I had to lift the barrel that is the filter when it was full of water. It weighs over 25 kg (around 55 pounds) I normally carry that every day at work but this barrel is dug down and I’ve never thought of making some handles to make it easier to lift and carry 🙂 🙂 🙂
Now it works fine again and I hope the water will clear up quickly because the pond get so much more sunlight now when that half of the apple tree is gone, it wouldn’t be fun if it turns in to green slime. I still haven’t seen the fish I bought but I hope they still are there down by the bottom so the heron hasn’t been for a visit. I have three goldfish in my aquarium too that I plan of letting in to the pond later next week.
I think I’ll buy one of those inflatable kid pools and fill it with water so that Sune can use that one instead, he would smell so much nicer after his bath if anything else 🙂 It’s time to make a pot of coffee, I’m so tired after all this work that tea just isn’t enough 🙂
Have a great day!
