There are many things my mother taught me but one thing that really stuck with m is:
Only touch something you do once if you can help it. An example of that is getting undressed at night. If you plan on wearing the same thing tomorrow, hang it up or fold it at once. Don’t put it down first because you just have to handle it twice, using time and energy. I don’t always follow that advice but most of the time I do.
I was thinking of that when I was doing dishes today, still by hand. I never put down a dish after drying it except for it’s proper resting place J
Another thing drilled into my mind when I was young…Always wear an apron when you work in the kitchen. I still do that and feel almost naked when I don’t have my apron on.
So much we learn as children gets carried on into adulthood.
Be polite, say hello to the people you meet and try to treat others as you would like to be treated.
Sometimes all of that is hard to follow but as long as we do our best things should be OK.
Those were just a few thoughts I had while doing dishes
