Summertime Saturdays

Freshly cut grass lawn

Sound of a lawnmower

The smell of freshly cut grass

Childhood memories

Of summertime mornings

And Saturday chores

Mom cleaning the whole house

Dad working in the yard

Me trying in vain to sleep in

Cus my sheets gotta be washed


Thursday is usually the day the landscapers cut the grass here in the complex where I live. Since today was a warm sunny day ( in the 70’s) I was outside tending to my plants and experienced that smell of freshly cut grass, which I love, and it also brought back some childhood memories of summertime Saturdays. 😊

  1. Good memories. I remember the push lawnmowers that didn’t make so much noise and didn’t pollute the air. I used to cut the grass sometimes when I was a kid and I always enjoyed it. My mom had a schedule to get the cleaning done during the week and she didn’t do much in that line on Saturdays except maybe tidy up the living room. Those were the “good old days” when we would sit out on the veranda and talk to all the neighbors who were out too.

    1. Nice, Yes, good memories and true those were the “good ol days”. We did have one of those push mowers also for small areas but we lived in the country and had a big front and back yard so my dad was thrilled when he was able to get a riding mower. 😊
      Sometimes mom used to say he cut the grass too often just cus he wanted to ride on the new mower! 😃
