I can dig it

Two more days of digging and block-laying. The wall rises, the platform expands, the hillside is getting chewed away. A hundred block and this wall will be done, long before I run out of dirt to backfill with. But then, I have to do another retaining wall just downhill for the access lane, so it's all good.

It was a lovely two days in the holler. Sunny days, cool nights, peace and quiet . . . Enjoying my new read on Jakob Grimm's mythology of the monstrous, too.
