“Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance.” - Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
We are counting down the days to the Oktoberfest! Four days to go! Oktoberfest = Maintenance. We have so many things to do and the list doesn´t seem to get any shorter.
Andrey always has the difficult work. He needs to fix things and I have the easy job: finding work for him. A good example will be the window shutters.
I think women tend to simply things. I look at the window shutters and see the final product. Beautiful, wooden window shutters blocking out the sun. It shouldn´t be too difficult. Cement them into the wall, tweak a little here and a little there and the job is done. But unfortunately it doesn´t work that way. That I have learnt from experience. What looks like a one day job, turns out to be a lot longer.

There are always complications and the job takes up more time than expected. The window shutters were no different. Andrey managed to finish the work today. It was a big job with a lot of drilling, cement and tweaking. It is done!

Ru, our dog, was keeping an eye on Andrey but eventually gave up and went back to sleep.

Unfortunately for Andrey there are four windows more...but that can wait until later!
Well done Andrey!
