Hello everyone! Yesterday afternoon and for a while this afternoon I have been weeding a flowerbed and it is rewarding to see the plants revealed. My beloved is happy to be home and to potter in the garden. However he is so enthusiastic that I have to watch that he does not overdo it! He has been sorting out the lilies and other pond plants and has rinsed the filters. He has added the needed ingredients to clear the winter sludge and kick start the bacteria in the pond. We have caught sight of two or three of our fish, which are beginning to swim nearer the surface now that it is milder. It has been a lovely spring day with sunshine and temperatures rising to 15 degrees Centigrade. It makes us feel so good to see the sun and enjoy the garden.
This morning as my beloved rested and slept late, as he is more tired since our holiday near Lancaster, I went into town for some exercise and to buy a few provisions. Even though it was a lovely day there was at that time a distinct chill in the air as it was foggy. I found I was only walking slowly as I still feel tired; I hope I soon am walking at my usual pace.
My beloved prepared delicious salmon, peppers, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes, which he served with a jacket potato. He feels happy to be cooking again, even though he was tired. This is the day that the Lord has made and I rejoice and am glad in it.
