Working Holiday: Part One

Working with one’s hands, getting them dirty, literally is more fun and relaxing than lazily doing nothing:

One example is wanting to cut grass, then discovering the lawnmower blade is half the length it should be and there are no blades to be bought around here. $8 and two hours later: problem fixed.

Obvious but corny lesson: as with the sharp axe, make sure your equipment/strategy is sharp and effective or you will waste a lot of time and effort with little result. Personal reflection: go big on maintenance.
