I have been working out again, but it always pains me to do it. I want something else to come out of it besides me exercising and feeling better. I was able to kill two birds with one proverbial stone today by going outside and recommencing work on the back hillside rock wall. I have a flat shovel/narrow spade like tool that makes a nice horizontal spot into the hillside. I dug a few horizontal stretches and started moving the large rocks that were already on the hillside into place for the lower wall. I want to have two tiers along the back hillside. My bigger problem currently is I am going to need some soil to back fill this area. I need to get the old two ton dump bed truck working. The only problem with that is I need to install $1200 worth of tires, a new battery and some new wires and spark plugs before I can even see if the truck will run. I know the tires need to go on the truck regardless but if the engine doesn’t work then I need to replace the engine. The only good thing is it is a Chevy so the engines are highly interchangeable. I will steal a little more dirt from the back hillside as it has collapsed a little and narrowed enough it would be hard to drive on the road. We do need a road along the back fence that doesn’t force you to drive sideways and almost lean into the fence. It was unbelievably warm today. Almost 60 degrees outside, I worked in a long sleeve shirt only and had sweat just pouring off me. I was so thirsty I went to the creek and drank ice cold stream water. So if I get sick in the next week we will know why. Its fast moving water and ice cold, I doubt there is anything growing in it. It tasted fabulous!
