i found out about national apron day last year at the apronista. i think it is supposed to be the day after mother's day, but i haven't really heard any whisperings about it in blog world this year...but i am celebrating today all the same.
i suppose the real point it to wear your apron out in the world...but i am not so much getting out into the world today...however, i did wear my apron:
watching 30 minutes of marie antoinette and feeling quite inspired by the colors in that movie
dancing with millie while the indigo girls sang "virginia woolf"
choosing fabric for some patchwork
eating some m&ms dipped in peanut butter
changing from annoyed to grateful when thinking about the garbage truck waking me up so early this morning (because of it i was able to finish editing early enough to sew this afternoon)
thinking about what flowers i would like to plant in the pots outside
smiling when jonny emailed to say he would pick up some food for dinner
reading an email from a friend just checking in with me
creating a few aprons that will look like this one (though this is my favorite photo of that apron in action)
chatting on the phone with a friend
singing along with billy joel to his glass houses album while the sewing machine whirred
feeling hopeful and content
