I LOVE MY NEW APRON! DON'T YOU LOVE THE COLOR PINK??
I am participating for the first time in Pink Saturday. You can link to Pink Saturday here: http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/. Come by and take a look at all the pink!Do men love seeing women in aprons? If they do, is it chauvinistic to say so? I love aprons! I don't have many, but I love them. When I am feeling serious in the kitchen, I like to wear one...it's like a uniform to me. What do you think? Do you like wearing an apron?
The quote in my blog title today is from the lovely Mitford Series by Jan Karon. In the second novel of the series: "A Light in the Window," on page 354 Father Tim walks into the kitchen where Cynthia his girlfriend is cooking dinner. He looks at her and thinks: "Good L....d, what had she done to herself? She looked so positively breathtaking that he was stopped in his tracks. 'It's the apron,' she said, reading his mind. 'Men like seeing women in aprons.' He kissed her tenderly. 'Please!' she murmured against his cheek. "One mustn't put dessert first.'
I read almost all of the Mitford series in January. I especially enjoyed the first four books ( At Home in Mitford, A Light in the Window, A Common Life, The High Green Hills). These books have been out for quite some time; but I just stumbled upon them in my local library. If you haven't read the Mitford series, I will briefly summarize the first few. Father Tim is a very beloved leader of his parish. He is older and his life gets shaken up by the following events:
- He gets diagnosed with diabetes.
- A large dog adopts him.
- He takes in a young 11 year old boy to raise from a tough background.
- A very attractive female neighbor moves in as his new neighbor.
