Ponding

When I came home I said to myself that it was too cold to yank the aerator out of the pond. I thought I might do it on Tuesday.

I went outside to wipe down the grill. It was wet since it had been victimized by the heavy rains. I did so and somehow was drawn to the pond, which I had thought I would give another day to. I yanked out the aerator and instead of keeping it out, I changed out the filter. Although many days after the rains, the pond was not clear and I so want it to start the winter and real hibernation with clarity.

It is my fall cleaning.

Somehow, I feel as if I have not done a complete job if I leave the pond unclear. It is kind of like my brain; I need to do my tasks so as to feel as if I can move on to the next one.

The only issue with this latest development is that I was supposed to be done with my fall clean up and this means I still have that left to do. Oh, wait, no, I wasn’t supposed to be done, the netting is still over the pond. The leaves have not yet dropped and I cannot yet remove it.

Nonetheless, I should not have done the aerator.

Am I bad?

No, maybe just not that smart.
