Nerves of steel, not Superman...

My dh.  He has another week off work, so this week it's getting those Fall jobs done that need doing.  

Dh has been stripping down the wood burning stove as there was a few issues with the fan.  He is now painting it all as it had some rust spots on it.  Hoping he has it all done before the end of the week, as it's getting cooler on a night.
Then the other job that needed doing was the attic dormer window needed re-caulked on the sides as there were holes in it.  As you can see it's very high.
Dh was the brave one to get on the roof.
I sat in the attic on the window seat and passed things to dh.  Looking at that photo I need to clean the windows inside soon!
An hour later it was all done, and we both lived to tell the tale.
Here's hoping it's not to do again for a while!

Glad you lived to tell the tale! Wish my dh would get at some of his Fall chores. Before you know it, the snow will fly!

I wish my man would do some fall jobs like that one. Our windows need to have plastic on them before fall and we need more efficient heating as our heating is such a waste of money!!
