My Next – door Neighbor
Mavis has been my neighbor for six years. I first met her when she knocked on my door and asked for a spade because she hadn’t yet unpacked hers. She had only moved in two days before.
Physically, Mavis looks younger than the most other women in their late sixties. She is of average height, neither fat nor thin. Her plump round face is framed by a mass of wavy white hair and her sparkling blue eyes show her humor and friendliness.
As for her personality, Mavis’s most striking characteristic is her generosity. My house, as well as most of our neighbors’, nearly always has a vase of flowers from her garden in the living room. Mavis is very good – natured and always has time for a chat. She is also patient. She hardly ever gets annoyed about something, except when children pick her favorite roses and lilies. However, she tends to be quite stubborn – once she has made a decision, nothing can change her mind.
Mavis always seems to be busy doing something. She spends a lot of her time looking after her garden and often participates in local flower shows. When she is not in her garden she is usually off somewhere raising money for charity or another.
All in all, Mavis is the perfect next – door neighbor. Since the day she moved in, we have grown very close and I am very fond of her, even if I am woken up by the noise of her lawnmower early in the morning!
