PA Dutch Saying of the Week

August 7, 2009 | Category: Amish, PA Dutch Saying | Posted by: Sarah

Each Friday, we share a PA Dutch saying from Proverbs of the Pennsylvania Dutch, compiled by David I. Glick & Family. Many of these sayings come from our local Amish community, whose simple and traditional lifestyle provides an ideal base for the continued use of such proverbs.

“Housework:
Something you do that
Nobody notices unless
You don’t do it.”

Saturday is my day to do housework – and we all know that Saturdays can get filled up fast – so I know this proverb rings true in our house – no one notices unless I don’t do it! Have a great weekend!
