We haven't stopped all day. Kevin was up ultra early again this morning to work on the ponds. Martin, Hairo and he finished cleaning the big pond, added the water, transferred the baby trout into the big pond, then transferred the big trout from the pond near the chicken coop into the pond where the babies were located. That's a whole lot of transferring! But it's done now, which is great! The big trout will be a lot easier to catch now in the smaller pond. As for the babies... well, they looked so big in the small pond, but now, in the big pond, they look tiny... they have lots of room to grow now. And grow they will. Kevin is completely exhausted.
As for me, I finished cleaning the guesthouse: made the bed, ironed the pillow cases, vacuumed, dusted, filling up the tins of sugar, coffee and tea. I always check all the appliances to make sure everything is good working order. I also make sure there's enough fire wood for the wood stove in case our guests choose to light it.
This afternoon we went to San Marcos to pick up some fresh fruit and vegetables for tomorrow's lunch and dinner. I have a busy morning tomorrow, too. I have to wake up especially early to start my bread, lemon/cranberry cake and cut up all my vegetables so they're ready when I make the soup for lunch and sides for dinner. Kevin will be catching two fish, so I'll need to gut them and he will filet them. Then I will be meeting our guests in Copey at mid-morning. Maybe I'll rest on Sunday.
