Thirteenth Entry Oma’s Aprons

November 13, 2013

Oma has many aprons.

Seven to be exact.

Seven different styles and seven differnt colors.

Each one is so special.

Each one is so unique.

Each one has a story to tell.

Today she wears an apron with two deep, wide pockets. One has a, red apple appliqué and both are trimmed in red rick rack.

Today is Sunday and we will harvest some fruit from the fruit trees in the orchard on Pa and Oma’s farm.

The pockets will soon be bulging as Oma and I fill both pockets with several delcious apples, that we snapped from the trees.

Tomorrow is Monday.  It is the day that I help Oma with laundry.

Tuesday bake cookies and bread

Wednesday create

A handy little apron to keep her clothes paint free, glue free and glitter free.  Three huge pockets to hold supplies of paint brushes, tubes of paint and containers of sparkly glitter can be found inside the deep pockets. Or sometimes she wears a classic Lab Coat style smock over her clothes.  This apron for creating also three large pockets; two for art supplies and one left breast pocket with her embroidered name, Oma Sue.  The once white smock is covered with many painting and glittery type stains that look like creations.  It fits her knee length with five colorful buttons down the front.

Thursday garden


Saturday books to read

Such a collection of crisp, ironed garments complete with memories of all that Oma likes to do.
