~Homemaking Meme~

What fun! Sallie at A Gracious Home wrote this meme. If you play along, she even has a Mister Linky up to leave your link on her post.

Aprons – Y/N? If Y, what does your favorite look like?

Yes!!! I love aprons! My favorite is probably one that I made - with apple fabric. But the one I wear all the time is one I got for 50 cents at a yard sale.

Baking – Favorite thing to bake
I'm supposed to like baking? *Grin* I guess I'll say cookies, since if I do bake that's usually what I end up making.

Clothesline – Y/N?
No, but I think it would be great to have one!

Donuts – Have you ever made them?
No. I did see a recipe in a magazine this fall, and thought they looked like a lot of fun to try!

Every day – One homemaking thing you do every day
The dishes.

Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze?
No. That's something we'd like to get though!

Garbage Disposal – Y/N?
Yes. It's old and makes a lot of noise while working, but it hasn't stopped working yet!

Handbook – What is your favorite homemaking resource?
I really like the short book called Order in the Court.

Ironing – Love it or hate it? Or hate it but love the results?
I used to really love ironing, before I was married. Now it just seems to multiply "like rabbits". I never hang anything in the closet with out it being ironed though.

Junk drawer – Y/N? Where is it?

Nope. I've managed 6+ years of marriage without one, so why start one now?

Kitchen – Color and decorating scheme

The cabinets are white, and the wall is a soft buttery yellow. The decorations are apple-themed.

Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking?
The feeling of a clean house. That feeling tends to escape me a lot. LOL

Mop – Y/N?

Nylons – Wash by hand or in the washing machine?

I put them in the washing machine in a nylon mesh bag.

Oven – Do you use the window or open the oven to check?
I *could* check by looking through the window, but I always open the oven door!

Pizza – What do you put on yours?
I love vegetarian pizzas!

Quiet – What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
Knit, of course! =)

Recipe card box – Y/N? What does it look like?
Yes, but I only have a few recipes in it. It's blue Rubbermaid. Nothing fancy - I keep it in the cupboard. I keep my recipes in a binder mostly.

Style of house – What style is your house?
1925 Craftsman, I do believe.

Tablecloths and napkins – Y/N?
For special occasions.

Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland?

Organized. I just recently wiped it down.

Vacuum – How many times per week?
Actually, not too often. The carpeted areas don't get much traffic. I sweep and dust mop more than I vacuum.

Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week?
Somewhere between 5-7.

X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
Not typically, but I suppose I should!

Yard – Y/N? Who does what?
Kevin does the mowing/snow shoveling. I take care of the flowers and vegetable garden.

Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
I don't really have any specific task that I end the day with. I usually go around and make sure the doors are locked, lights turned off, etc.
