A Day of Rest
Church, Sunday Dinner, A Nap
That's Sunday at Linderhof!
Growing up I was always fond of the
"Days of the Week"
Kitchen Towels that
Mother and Grandmother used
Often a young girl's first embroidery project
for a gift for that same mother or grandmother
and when you had a wedding shower
You always got at least one set of these towels
often made by that same grandmother!
But back in those days, women stayed at home
And their work was home keeping
And it was parceled out day by day
But also in those days, washing did take up most of Monday;
Ironing most of Tuesday;
Housekwork was a day long duty
Not something that you whipped through
in an hour or less!
These towels reminded you
of the order of things!
As you washed the dishes and dried them by hand!
I've worn out my wedding present ones
(from my grandmother)
I have another set given to me a few years ago
from my dear Mother-in-law
I'm saving those
To pass on to her namesake granddaughter,
