lol i grew up in a religion that was very strict about the whole, sunday is rest day and do not by and sell on sunday :)Good Friday was great and accomplished much on the friend's new shed, now if Arthur will assist (or just not get in the way) then we might get finished and back to working on my own place on Monday. I won't work on Easter Sunday.
It is not a religous thing, just following my heritage. Grandpa worked on the old rock farm from "Can to Cant" or "Sun up until Sun down", but on Sundays all he would do is milk the cow and feed the chickens. However, Grandma worked hardest on Sunday's and started cooking on the old wood stove on Saturday nights and kept food on the table covered with a white sheet (to keep the flies off) all day long so that when the in-laws, out-laws, cousins and friends showed up there was something to eat.
We kids played cow pasture softball using cow patties for bases and dipped in the creek afterwards with our clothes on to get rid of most of the "home plate". LOL When evening came, Grandma would always say "Y'all Come" when she really wanted to say "WHEW".
i can remember many a time that we would be out of a staple like milk or a loaf of bread and we would stop off at Kroger on the way home from church (of course we couldn't go to the Kroger right down the road from the church... we would drive all the way across town to the other one) my mom would be looking over her shoulder the whole time ready to dive behind a display at any minute in case she saw someone from church...lol. us kids were like, "but mom if we see them at the store too?" it made no difference to her...she was not about to get caught if she could help it.
now years later she has kind of adopted my mentality of "just let them talk cause they going to anyway" and stops off every Sunday at the McDonald's right across the street from the church for an ice cream cone and an apple pie. we kids like to chide her every once in a while about it. "awe..... uh mom.......your not supposed to buy and sell on Sundays!" she just laughs and says the bible also says to mind your own business too...lol
