I was up a little before 7:00 a.m. this morning. By 7:30, I was stepping over to the building site to do some digging. I've been needing to backfill the foundation on the inner side of the wall for some time, but when you're trying to make time laying block, there's no time and energy left over to do it. Today I had set aside the morning just for that purpose. I finished around 9:30, just as the sun's rays were starting to stream in over Woods Ridge. In other words, I missed all the heat.
I then got out my tractor and did a wee bit of grading on the road where the spur joins it to fix another budding erosion problem. Finished that with the McLeod. And I was done. Took a creek bath, cleaned up the cabin, and was heading for the gate by quarter to eleven. Great sense of accomplishment. Next time, though, it's back to the salt mines.
And now, a couple of pix.

I never get tired of this view
