The last weekend of June was spent planting trees in the front yard. Now it's time to move on to the backyard. Silly me thinking we would take a break for the holiday weekend.The gazebo and fence started the weekend a little weathered. My awesome husband power washed and stained them both. They look wonderful. Just ignore the mess we made of the grass, it'll recover. Wheel barrowing and shoveling pea gravel was my contribution. John was probably doing more than he should with his injured shoulder, but at least he let me do some of the heavy lifting. He went to the doctor on Thursday for his follow up visit and had to have an MRI since it is not healing as fast as the doctor would like. We should have the results on Tuesday of this week. Hopefully it is just a torn muscle that will heal on its own with time. We would like to avoid surgery if possible.
