The Staycation

I am on vacation this week. With money being tight this year I'm taking the opportunity to repair the rock wall and brick patio I put in over ten years ago. I didn't know what I was doing when I first put up the rock wall so the rocks were falling down. Also, the truckloads of dirt I put in had settled down so it needed to be re-leveled. When I saw the rocks I had originally put up, I can't believe I did such a bad job of it. Oh well, live and learn. Before I started putting the dirt back in, the supervisors, (Eli, Bows and Toby) inspected my handiwork.

I've been using more appropriate rocks this time and putting in gravel and rocks behind the wall to re-enforce it. I even put down a concrete bed on the one corner to help stabilize it. Toby has been a real pain in the butt while I've been working. He's either been chasing all the bugs I've disturbed or running up the hills of dirt or along the trench. I've had to keep checking where he was before I threw in some dirt or gravel. Oh, the life of a kitten!

More cats at Friday Ark

I hate to break it to you but he wasn't just chasing bugs...he was disguising his supervisory role and keeping close tabs on your progress.

Boy, was his disguise really good! I would have never known because he ate the bugs he managed to catch. Eeeww!
