I wish you all…



It has been one of those weeks.

First I want to apologize for what seems like my dropping off the face of the Earth.  I have been dealing with a bit of a family crisis this past week and am really happy I remembered to make this post! When I am at liberty, I will fill you in on some of the events of this past week.  Just know no one is ill or physically hurt. But as a mom to grown children, I can tell you your role never really ends as their protector, confidant or counselor.  And as many of you will understand, when one of your children needs you, things such as blogging are not on your list of things to do.  So with that pitiful excuse for an explanation, I ask you to bear with me.  I have had absolutely no time to choose recipes or pull together a collection of overall pictures that I had hoped to post today.  I have done the things that had to be done.

As you know if you are a regular reader, I don’t put my most personal life out for public consumption.  And certainly wouldn’t share things about other members of my family that wouldn’t be something they shared with people they don’t know.  If you live locally you will know soon enough what’s up.  But this too shall pass and everyone will come out on the other side.  I do wish Husband was home, but daily phone conversations and emails have keep me sane and has made it possible for him to lend his advice and share the burden of watching helplessly as hearts break and lives take unexpected turns.

In amongst all the changes taking place, I have had several baking orders to fill.  So I hope you understand that my days have no more than 24 hours in them, as much as I would like to change that!

I will be drawing for the winner of the Meet My Dear Friend EllynAnne Geisel on Wednesday so please get your name in the jar before 12:01 a.m. Wednesday November 25.  If at all possible I will post pictures of the other items – the vintage linen and vintage apron, later today.

Thank you for your loyalty in coming here regularly and I do sincerely apologize for the slight derailment of what I had hoped would be an amazing week of apron and overall talk.

Happy International Overall Day!  Celebrate by wearing your overalls ~ the world’s most comfortable, versatile garment!


International Overalls Day is just around the corner!

I just got a  email from my co-conspirator The Bib Professor giving me an award for being one of the founders of International Overalls Day which we will celebrated the first time on November 20, 2009.  Neils (The Bib Professor) is the real overalls aficionado so please visit his blog and see what its all about! Thank you Neils and thank you Jodi for making the adorable award button.  I will be wearing my oldest and dearest overalls on Friday in celebration of the world’s most comfortable, versatile garment!

overallI am working on posting more pictures of me and my family in our overalls through the years.  Hopefully I will have it up tomorrow.
