Wash Day

Mondays around here are wash day. Today I must wash all of the clothes and bedding not to mention the curtains and rugs to get ready for church.

My sister Caroline is coming in the forenoon to help. The scholars will be at school of course, but she'll have her two small ones in tow. They play nicely with my little ones, and Mommie will come to help as well. Her arthritis is flaring up, so I will mostly keep her busy with the children and making dinner (what you call lunch) for the men when they come in from choring.

Mondays are also the days I make bread. I will start the dough as soon as I get in from milking. Then it can rise while we do the wash and be ready for baking just after lunch. I usually make six loaves per week for my family, but with church we will be making an additional twelve.

God Bless,

It's nice when the little ones can play together. I hope that Caroline feels better soon with the arthritis.
