just cutting the grass (with scissors)

A couple days ago the Husband saw the Maker out in the lawn with scissors, cutting the grass. To be fair, the lawn did need cutting.

Today the Husband was out mowing when the Maker requested that one particular section of the lawn – the scissored part – NOT be mowed. Upon inspection, it was clear that a rough path had in fact been scissored into the clover under the oak. The Maker delineated the section, and once the boundaries were understood, the Husband politely, if resignedly, mowed around it. He even mowed the path formerly hewn by scissors, much to the satisfaction of the Maker, who spent the next 20 minutes hopping delightedly through the clover square on his path.
