When I was growing up, Grandma used to follow the old fashioned way of doing chores. Her version went as follows:
Monday was wash day.
Tuesday was ironing.
Wednesday was Sewing.
Thursday was baking.
Friday was cleaning.
Saturday she went to Market.
Sunday was the Lord's day, which consisted of church morning and evening and resting. There were certain farm chores that had to be done, but only the necessary things. She prepared a lot of the food that was served the day before. All she had to do was warm it up on the old cookstove. Granpa had to feed and take care of the livestock, but otherwise no work was done.
We kids could play quietly outside but we weren't to be wild or whooping around the yard. We could read, but no games were played. We could sit under a tree or laze in the hay mow. We were never allowed to play cards. They were the devil's tool.
The rules in Grandma's house were strict, but we were brought up to respect others, be honest and have faith in God. What more could we have asked for?
