I do not recall how these stones made it up on the wall. So far none have decided to fall. The piles on the ground have started to disappear. And I'm sure glad of it. It is amazing how much can be accomplished in beautiful 70 degree weather with low humidity! I'm hoping to get the north wall closed up in a matter of days...unless something pressing comes up. I don't like to count my chickens before they hatch. With any luck and continued beautiful fall. Sisyphus will continue to push the rock back up the hill.

|The inside wall progressing|
|Notice the re-purposed corner stone. It had been a lintel, most likely broke when it was being dressed.|
|Sadly my walk through is no longer usable.|
A few of these photos are a bit dated. One has only so many hours in the day to work and update the blog. A couple of wonderful days and then back to the heat and humidity. I am very much the tortoise.

I cannot remember where I started this week, or if there was a start. Just a few snapshots of the wall moving up. I have had some wonderful help as of late and have put them to taking bricks off the kitchen addition, demo, and moving stone. I have found myself improving (a little) at my stone work. Just a lot of stepping back to observe. Half the job is just looking. The last two pictures is bringing the stone wall back into the kitchen. I suppose this is the end to another week. Here's to another ahead!
