APRONS

 (Notice that a "Medium" is a size 14 – 16)
            

Remember making an apron in Home Ec? Remember Home Ec? If we have to explain "Home Ec" you may delete this. I just don't have the energy anymore. Read below.

The History of  'APRONS' 
 


I don't think our kids know what an apron is.
The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only had a few and because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons required less material.  But along with that, it served as a potholder for  removing hot pans from the oven.  It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.  From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.
 

When company came, those

aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.  And when the weather was cold, Grandma wrapped it around her arms.
 

Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove. Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.
 From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables.
After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.
  In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.  When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.  When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men folk knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.
 
It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes.

 

Send this to those who would know (and love) the story about Grandma's aprons.
 

REMEMBER:

Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw. They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron.  I don't think I ever caught anything from an apron – but love…

Happy Autumn

 

 
 

HAPPY AUTUMN

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin.   God lifts you up,  
takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.   He opens you  
up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff–  
including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.    Then He carves  
you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for  
all the world to see.    This was passed on to me from another  
pumpkin.   Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin.   I liked  
this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.    Happy Fall!
