Aprons – Y/N? If Y, what does your favorite look like?
Well, I have an apron, a cool Pampered Chef apron...but...I never think to use it, and instead wipe everything on my pants. ROTFL.
Baking – Favorite thing to bake
ummm, well, once in a great while, I'll bake a box bread, or a Tastefully Simple "beer bread" (using sprite, lol.)
Clothesline – Y/N?
Donuts – Have you ever made them?
umm, no, but I love to eat them!! HA HA
Every day – One homemaking thing you do every day
I end up sweeping somewhere every day...with wood floors and a messy preschooler, it's inevitable!
Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze?
Yes, we have one, and once in a whle we get bulk stuff to put in it, but I always forget what's in there.
Garbage Disposal – Y/N?
NOOOOO, crying pitiously....That's one of the things I really want.
Handbook – What is your favorite homemaking resource?
Well, everyone's blogs are always filled with awesome ideas! I love you guys!
Ironing – Love it or hate it? Or hate it but love the results?
I have to admit... I NEVER iron! My hubbie irons his own shirts for churh. I just try hang stuff up pretty quickly (or wear it wrinkled. hee hee.)
Junk drawer – Y/N? Where is it?
Well, for me it should be.... if you DON'T have a junk drawer, where is it? ROTFL. No,really I have one junk drawer in the kitchen next to the sink.
Kitchen – Color and decorating scheme
Well, we haven't been able to do much to the kitchen since we moved in, so it's still white. I have an ivy theme though.
Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking?
The clean smells! I love candles, and clean clothes, and even the smell of bleach, LOL. It's the smells that motivate me to clean.
Mop – Y/N?
Yep, I have wooden floors, and tile EVERYWHERE, so I'm always sweeping and mopping.
Nylons – Wash by hand or in the washing machine?
I throw them in my lengerie bag, and throw them in the washing machine.
Oven – Do you use the window or open the oven to check?
Oh, I open my door to check, every time. You don't get the TRUE look through the window.
Pizza – What do you put on yours?
I adore mushrooms!!
Quiet – What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
I go into the bunny room, and play with my bunny, and read.
Recipe card box – Y/N? What does it look like?
I have a big white plastic container that I keep my cookbooks in (on the fridge, that's how often you can tell I look at them.) and my cards are in a clear container that I got in the mail. I would have liked to continue with the recipe mail thing, but I did have to admit to myself that I never cook. ROTFL. So, I don't really need new recipes all the time.
Style of house – What style is your house?
I'm in a funky golden yellow ranch. I LOVE IT, but not the color... ROTFL. Someday, we'll have the money to put new vinyl siding up.
Tablecloths and napkins – Y/N?
How about paper towels?? I use either napkins, or paper towels... whatever is closest at the time. I don't have any tablecloths up now.
Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland?
I don't go in there very often. It is organized, but not very pretty.. just junk I never use, and need to toss.
Vacuum – How many times per week?
I have a few bath mats and a few small carpets, so mostly I just sweep them up, or use my manual little sweeper. I'm thinking about getting one of those little dust devil ones soon.
Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week?
I've never counted really. I just try to put it off, and then realize that I'll have to do some, or we won't be fit to go outside.
X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
Yard – Y/N? Who does what?
Jeffie and I take turns pushing eachother out the door to shovel or whatever. HAHA. I love to garden, so I'm in charge of the flowers and stuff. Jeffie was in charge of the lawn, but it never got done (in his defence, he works 6 days a week), so this year we're hiring a maintenence crew.
Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
I go in and take care of my pets. I clean Frappie's cage, and give her fresh food and water, and give her a treat to put her back in her cage. Then I feed my fish, and turn off their light. That's always just about the last thing I do each day.
