A Beautiful Spring Day

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.

    much enjoyed the account of the trip to Lancaster – so other folks do read your blog! – Ah, but why do they not add comments? You and Malcolm have a gift for getting lost on car journeys – our son in law Nick has put on onto a brilliant website – http://www.multimap.com – you simply type in the postal code, and up comes a map with the location highlighted – andyou can get it in all sorts of differing scales, the largest scale gives you road names – the smaller scale gives you the whole surrounding area (or should that be the other way round?
    Reading the Guardian on a Sunday? But surely it is not published that day – or perhaps you were reading the Saturday one while you enjoyed breakfast.

    Hi Selwyn
    That website reference sounds good; we shall try that next time.  On Sunday I was reading the Observer and the Guardian on the other days.  By the way my mouth now feels more back to normal at last!
