Wednesday, July 15, 1914: Wednesday—Perhaps a little different from other days.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Grandma. . .HOW is Wednesday different from other days? Did your family have specific chores for each day of the week?
Washing clothes on Monday. .
Did you do the mending on Wednesdays? Different lists have different chores for Wednesday, but the most frequently mentioned one seems to be mending. I’ve also seen lists where the ironing is listed as the Wednesday chore.
