Busy busy...

Been a pretty busy day, and it's still only 9pm. I still want to try to get some more done, after I eat (which will be after I finish this entry), but we'll see. Pretty tired. ;)

Anyhow, the day's been up and down more or less, but mostly pretty cool. The main downswing was going out to the new pond this morning to find one of my two koi floating, dead. Apparently the move was too much for it. Some of the other fish hadn't been acting quite right either yesterday, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all the rest pull through alright.

On the plus side, also earlier this morning I got my new computer! Yay! Sweet sweet gaming machine. I now have it all set up, have my email and news programs on it, have Netscape downloaded, have ICQ back up and running - in other words, I think I'm mostly set, with probably a few more things to download here and there as I think of them, and some things to reinstall.

Also on the tiring-but-now-cool side, I've mostly finished up my pond. I didn't really get it finished up until it was already getting somewhat dark, so no pics until probably tomorrow, and I still have to cart more dirt out, but it's mostly done. And it now holds around 700 US gallons, which pleases me. Now if it'll only clear up...!

Other than that, been taking care of some other cleaning, laundry, etc. here and there throughout the day. Fun fun. So I guess I'd better end this, go get some food, and get back to the grind!

Yay you!

Here's hoping the rest of the fish pull through. What happens during the winter?

Then they go into a sort of "hibernation" of sorts, in the deeper parts of the pond, and you have to make sure that the water doesn't freeze solid completely. Keeping a hole in the ice, etc. Will switch out my pump (which doesn't run then anyhow) for a heater if necessary.

Or of course you can bring them in for the winter, if you have a big enough tank. Which I don't. The 50 gallon *might* work, with many water changes (and if I don't get too many more fish by then), but that's in use currently. :)
