Reading your comments from the other day after I mentioned that I was in my kitchen making dinner and wearing my apron, well you had me cracking up, people! Yes, I sometimes wear an apron. It's mostly due to the fact that I'm a bit of a slob when I cook and am always wiping my hands on the apron. I also don't want to ruin my beautiful designer clothes and cashmere sweaters while I cook.
I'm also sorry I'm such a fibber because I don't own a single cashmere sweater.
I do like wearing aprons, though. An apron not only helps me to stay clean, but it makes me look as if I know what I'm doing as I concoct dinners nightly on my fun and quirky stove in my pink-countertopped kitchen.
Tonight I'm making linguini with clam sauce and those who know me know that my husband is the real cook around here. However, since his surgery back in October, I took over in the kitchen. It was just a bit much for him to have everything ready all at the same time and to try to find things in a kitchen he wasn't familiar with in the first place. You see, we moved here in October after he lost his job and after he had brain surgery.
Frankly, I think maybe he's just milking it for what it's worth, having me cook all the meals. Or perhaps he just likes seeing me in the apron. I've noticed that sometimes when he walks by as I'm chopping or stirring, I'll see him raise his eyebrows and wink. I think he likes this arrangement and so, if this makes him happy, I'll don the apron and do the cooking! Speaking of aprons, this is the one I really want. I just think it's fun, don't you?
The giveaway I mentioned in the post title is over at Le Jarden girl's site. She's giving away two sepia toned floral prints and they are absolutely gorgeous. So head on over and check it out.
Those of you who have asked to be interviewed (from yesterday's post) will soon receive your questions, if you haven't already.
Also, some of you have asked me if I mind my husband using my camera, and the answer is a resounding NO! I don't mind at all. And if photography makes him happy, he can use it all he wants. Except for when I'm using it. And maybe someday we'll get one of the lenses that I'm lusting after. So, for now, we'll share.
I love having all of you visit and it's so good to see so many new faces that are fast becoming regular and welcome sights.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
