Probably not the best weekend to be mucking about in the dust and blazing sun. But the new wall of concrete blocks has the first layer nearly complete. It was grueling work out by that west facing wall, and our lunch break was probably longer than was needed. I was complimenting Mr. C on his handiwork (he levels stones better than I do) and said it looked so nice that I'm looking forward to terracing the area to the left side of the steps.
He was afraid I was going to say that.
