夏至

前两天是收垃圾的日子,邻居们纷纷把各自家里的垃圾摆在了门口。不巧的是那两天风也很大,于是许多垃圾还未等到垃圾车的到来便被吹到了附近路上。我们看到了,便像往常那样按照叔叔说的,从屋里找来捡垃圾的工具和袋子,然后出门将它们纷纷收集起来放进了社区的垃圾桶里。坦诚地说,这件事其实并没有什么难做的,花的时间和精力都不多,做的时候还可以说说笑笑,可谓是举手之劳。只是我随后也想到,倘若不是叔叔的教育和要求的话,我很多时候差的实际就是这样的举手之劳。也就是说,有些事虽然表面看上去很小,但追根溯源却可能并不小,而是能反映出这个人有没有帮助他人的心。


Two days ago are ones when garbage would be collected, during which neighbour put their garbage outside their doors. Unfortunately, it was windy those days, so many of the garbage before they found their way to the garbage truck were swept onto the streets. When we saw it, we got tools and bags from our house and went out to collect them and put them into the community garbage can. To be honest, this was not difficult, demanded not much time and energy, during which we could even talk and laugh, deserving the name a piece of cake. But I later also thought that sometimes, if it were not for uncle’s education, what I lacked was just such a piece of cake. That means, something though looking small, but to the bottom it means a lot, able to reflect someone’s inner world, whether he is kind or not.


还有两天就是夏至,标志着夏天真地就要来临了。而另外标志着夏天要来临的还有叔叔让虎哥买来的西瓜。西瓜是很大一个,我们先是把它冰冻了很长时间,然后才最终大快朵颐了一番。无论是什么地方,西瓜的味道都总是那么甘爽清甜,让人一瞬间便能想起来以前的夏天。


Two days latter is the Chinese Solar Term, coming of summer, meaning that summer is really coming. Another thing that signs this is the watermelon that uncle told Brother Hank to buy. We first froze it for a long time, then ate it. No matter where, the taste of watermelon is all the time so sweet and watery, recalling the memory of the previous summers.
