Smartening Up Grandma’s Lawn

It was just another Christmas Vacation but to make it special we decided to celebrate it with at John’s grandma. She lived alone on the outskirts of the city; in a house my husband had named ‘The Chateau’, because to him, it had never been lesser than one of those mystic castles, the stories of which he had heard from grandma.

And as we reached there, I could understand why he was so fascinated with that house. It indeed carried the look of a villa, which lay snug amongst the woods giving the warmest welcome to its visitors. But I was a little tensed to see the condition of the garden; although grandma had tried to maintain it but her age and health prevented her from being the same active homemaker she had always been. So, I decided to make my little contributions, to help my husband relive the liveliness of his childhood days.

All I needed was a lawn mower; grandma had one but it needed a little mending. We went to the nearby market the next day and got some spare parts. The best part of marrying an engineer is that they are often good henchmen and will repair your small machineries. John has always proved his worth in that.

As I mowed the lawn, I could see the old lady’s eyes gleaming with pleasure; and the next thing was a nice barbeque treat for us along with a delight of blueberry cakes grandma is famous for.
