Here is Friday's transfer

from the "Ladies of the Week" set, Woman's World 1928

Just when you thought the weekend is here and it's time to relax..................it's time to clean!

When I used to work an 8 to 5 job, on my way home from work every Friday, I would stop off at the grocery store to stock up for the week and weekend, and go home and clean my first and new house. Then I had all weekend to just relax and enjoy a clean home, and a full pantry.

Also, this picture reminds me of some advice my mother gave me when I was younger. She told me that her mother always said that a woman should always have a rag in her hand when her husband comes home. That way, he feels comfortable that she's been doing her duty all day. If he sees you sitting down, she said, even if you've been slaving all day doing housework, he will assume you were sitting around all day.

That's funny because it's so true. Most men don't even think about how the house keeps clean. I thought that was funny and wise advice!

Enjoy the day,

So true, cleaning never seems to be done. I love the weekday transfers and have always wanted to do some.
