How was your spring break? I was hoping for some relaxation, but found quite the opposite. We decided to tackle cleaning out our pond from years of algae wars - the algae was clearly winning - but in the process, we lost all of our beautiful koi. They were truly like pets to me, and I shall miss them -- Aphrodite, Paris, Sam, Ralph... all so beautiful. To end the holiday, I came down with a nasty cold virus. I hope your spring break was much more relaxing!
