It's going to be a busy morning on the farm. I've fed the horses, but there's about 5 acres of grass to mow and some laundry to do. Of course, I've got some ideas jotted down for the story. How many of you remember your parents having designated chores for each day of the week? My mom was a stickler for:
- Wash on Monday
- Dust on Tuesday
- Clean woodwork on Wednesday
- Mop on Thursday
- Groceries on Friday
- Grass had to be done on Saturday
- Sunday was for church and family.
Of course that was before work days were seven days long. Growing up we had blue law days. Stores closed on Sunday except for grocery and pharmacies. Some days I wish we'd go back to that. Everyone needs a day of rest. I think the chasing of the all mighty dollar has gotten a wee bit out of hand. That being said, I'm off to do my best to contribute to the economy.
