My memory isn't really a memory. This year I have an exchange student from China who loves cooking. We attended a local craft show when she decided she wanted to buy an apron. One exhibitor was an elderly lady who had a small table filled with hand embroidered goods: tablecloths, pillowcases, and aprons!
When I began talking with her I noticed her accent. I asked if she was German and she replied that she was Polish. I told her about my unusual maiden name which is Wajda and mispronounced by everyone.
Wonder of wonders, her last name was the same! I found a long lost cousin. :-)

I too can see my precious grandmother standing at the stove whipping up the most awesome dinners for the holidays- always a big smile on her face, laughing as she did he kitchen chores- always a cookie for the kiddos and a cup of coffee or tea for the adults- she could whip up a meal in minutes after you surprised her with a visit and always with an APRON on! Thanks for evoking those wonderful memories for me!
