Yesterday all the bending over to pull weeds out of a flowerbed did me in.
My back is very..VERY..sore. I've been using a heating pad to help.
Then I remembered the pain meds I had for my kidney stone.
I think they're kicking in now :-)
Today I stayed away from anything on the ground.
George finished up the mowing..
..and then cleaned all the grass off the tractor.
My job today was to pull dried moss off the bird netting.
These nets are put over the ponds so that the birds cannot get to the fish.
The food for the fish is tossed in with a scoop over the netting.
If the moss isn't picked off the net, the food sticks to it, gets moldy,
and can fall in the water and kill the fish.
Picking moss off netting is mind-numbing work...
but at least it's not bending over :-)
George got to get rid of moss on another place..
After all our hard work this week (20 hours each!),
Bob, the manager came to us today and said he made a mistake..
we are only supposed to work 20 hours TOTAL.
Now he tells us! :-)
George decided a payback was in order..
Of course, no fishing allowed at the hatchery :-)
There was no fishing line on the pole!
I think it's time for a well-deserved couple of days off.
We're going to do some sightseeing!
