Do you wear an apron when you cook dinner? I sometimes do and when I am in England, my mother-in-law has some nice ones and I like to use hers when I try to cook! Did you know that they are not called aprons there, they are "pinnies", short for pinafores! (They would know the word "apron", of course, but I am telling you, Joan says "pinny"!) Funny how, in our same language, we will very often use different words for the exact same thing. (Mobile / cell phone, dust bin/trash can, torch/flashlight, motorway/ expressway, TV/telly....so many we can add to this list!
And according to Wikipedia:
The word apron is from the metanalysis of the term "a napron" to "an apron". The original spelling of napron has been lost (from the Old French naperon; Modern French napperon).
Interesting! That reminds me of adder/nadder...
the adder snake was once called a nadder but then it somehow became adder. (An adder.)
If you would like to see a very beautiful apron, I am going to give you a link to a wonderful blogger...Sue from Mr. Micawber's Recipe for Happiness. Sue is a very talented designer and she has an apron that is featured in this month's issue of "Vintage Crochet". You may read all about it just here! Her idea for the apron came from one of the characters from the Anne books by L. M. Montgomery.
(And I hope you know "Anne of Green Gables"!)
My friends, I would be thankful if your could pray for rain for us.
Our lack of rain is quite serious in this area, we are in an EXTREME drought. The areas around us have received much more rain than we have! The photo below is of the gorgeous crepe myrtles from several years ago. If you have rain, you are lucky!
How about a song by Adele? I think that would be nice!
