Sunday Is Not a Day of Rest
In her book Uniquely Rika, Rika states the importance of the wife setting up routines for her husband to follow. Her premise is that as routines are established, the submissive becomes more adept at accomplishing the chores set before him and can soon handle more over time – making the life of his dominant easier and less bound to the everyday tasks that often burden a woman. I’ve found this to be quite true. I remember back in the beginning of our femdom relationship when I felt quite overwhelmed trying to accomplish the few things Katie had me do. But it didn’t take long before I learned to multitask, streamline what I had to do, group certain tasks together or simply become better and faster at them.
A chore that has been added almost without my knowing is meal planning for the week ahead. We food shop on the weekend and it is my duty to make a food list and talk to Katie about what we will be eating for the next several days. My employment requires me to work a split-shift. I have some flexibility with my hours but generally my day begins a little after noon and ends in the evening. I cook Katie a hot breakfast daily. I can also make lunch or at least let her know of an easy one she can put together on her own later. Dinners are different. I'm almost never home by "dinner time". When I'm gone Katie once to be able to quickly heat up a meal with minimal effort. She doesn't like to cook and pretty much refuses to do so. I don’t like it when I call on my way home and here that she's had Cheerios for dinner. That doesn’t float my boat. So the weekend – and usually Sunday - is a day to think about the week ahead with regard to meal preparation and what I can make that will be satisfying, nourishing and easy to prepare.
Tonight (it's Sunday at the time of writing this post) I put together a crock pot meal that will serve us well for a few meals. Next week I’ll have to come up with a different menu item or two that can be stretched out over four or five days. Since there are only two of us, eating leftovers has become the norm. Planning and making four or five dinners for the upcoming week doesn’t mean making five different meals. It really isn’t that hard to do which goes back to the point Rika stated – that men become more efficient at their tasks, thus enabling them to do more for their wives and making the femdom marriage they live in more rewarding for the woman to which they serve. And personally, I have come to love the creative side of putting meals together, experimenting and trying new recipes - within the framework of what I know Katie will eat. I really do love serving her and knowing I play a significant role in caring for her well-being.
