The Apron Brigade
“With her pretty hair tucked into a little cap,arms bared to the elbow, and a checked apronwhich had a coquettish look in spite of the bib,the young housewife fell to work,feeling no doubts about her success…”(Little Women)
Some superheroes wear capes. We wear aprons.
Here is where we let our hair down and get real. Here is where we’d like to invite you in for tea and scones. We’ll pull a little pot of jam from the Provision Room, lovingly preserved from the last harvest. We’ve been saving it especially for your visit. Pull up a chair and get comfortable. Introduce yourself to the other ladies. We have all the time in the world.
Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.–Chaim Potok

You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.
