Frolic day and enjoying mom’s Italian breadsticks

Frolic day at my parents. Helping Mom with lunch. Going to my uncle’s store. Finish cleaning. My day looked packed full, but enjoyable. It was 6 a.m. Saturday morning.

A “frolic” was planned to be held for the men and boys to help work on my parents shop to help replace several old windows and doors as well as insulate the front section of the shop and line the interior with metal. This is where Mom and Dad hold church services when it is their turn. Each family in our church who has enough space in their house or shed to conveniently host services takes a turn. Some of you may be unfamiliar with the term “frolic.”  The Amish use the term to describe a “work day” where usually a group of men come to pitch in and help a friend, family member, or neighbor complete a work project.
