Halloween came down on Monday (the first Monday after Halloween) and so I pulled out the Halloween storage containers housed in the crawl space. I also decided to take the three plywood pumpkins I made years ago and paint them orange on the back since they have a habit of turning in the wind. So here it is Tuesday and things are still not all away. The paint is still drying.
I went to check on the pond on Monday and it is doing great. I cleaned the aerator because it is cleaning as well as providing air. The netting is successful at keeping out the big leaves. I feel that I should leave the aerator on for as long as possible so I can start out with a clear pond in the spring.
The weather turned cold, windy, and wet and I am glad I spent some time cleaning the aerator filter.
Meanwhile, all I can think of is the elections, hoping that a message will be sent and that perhaps a little of the current nasty, national situation shall abate.
Is this wishful thinking or just being naive?
I would like to think that it is perhaps positive instead
of either of the above.
Tonight’s news should be interesting.
