We have been working on our yard a lot lately. Raking dirt, getting rid of rocks and weeds to prepare for sod. I did the weeding on Canada day, it was very hot out and although I was wearing loads of sunscreen, I forgot about my lower back where your shirt lifts up slightly when you are sitting forward. As a result, I ended up with a 2 inch burn just above my pant line on my back. I was so sore from all the hard work that I didn't even notice until I jumped in the shower, blasting the hot water to relax my muscles and scalded my burn something fierce.
Last weekend we built a retaining wall for a small flower garden in the front of the house (you can't really see it in the pic), and planted some trees on Saturday night. Then we put down sod on Sunday morning. Surprisingly, this did not take very long at all and we were done around lunch time.
Here is the final result. It really makes a different from just having dirt everywhere doesn't it?
