Happy Homemaker over at Sensible Life posted this and I thought it was cute.
Aprons- Y/N? If Y, what does your favorite look like?
I own them, so yes, but I don’t wear them. Too lazy, I guess.
Baking – Favorite thing to bake:
Clothesline – Y/N?
Yes, we have an umbrella clothesline because I hate how much room the regular ones take up.
Donuts – Have you ever made them?
Yes. I have made them at home before, but my first job in Illinois was doing the doughnuts at a local convenience store – 5 days a week, starting at 4:30 AM.
Everyday – One homemaking thing you do every day.
Just one thing? Hah. Let’s see – my schedule is as follows every weekday: Haul my butt out of bed, catch up on a few blogs, take my shower and get dressed, scoop cat litter, make the bed, sweep the kitchen floor, do dishes if I was too lazy to do them the night before (happens quite often), generally straighten up if I have time, and skedaddle for work. When I get home, I cook.
Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze?
We have freezer space all right, especiallly right now, with the deep freeze outside. Other than that, I have a chest freezer and a second refrigerator/freezer in the basement.
Garbage Disposal – Y/N?
Yes but no. Mine died Sunday night and will hopefully be replaced this week yet. I hate being without it!
Handbook – What is your favorite homemaking resource?
Ironing – Love it or hate it?
I choose option (c) – loathe with the fires of a thousand hells. I buy wash and wear clothes just to avoid it.
Junk drawer – Y/N Where is it?
Oh yes. What house doesn’t? Even if it didn’t start out that way! Mine is in the kitchen.
Kitchen – Color and decorating scheme.
The walls are currently burn-your-eyes yellow. I liked it. Really, I did. I still do. But I think we need to tone it down a bit. My mother made the curtains – predominantly blue with white and yellow flowers.
Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking?
The satisfaction I feel when the house is clean, I have fresh GF bread, all the laundry is done, and I still have time to do whatever the heck I want.
Hell yes. But 4 times a year I get down on my hands and knees and give all the floors a good handwashing.
Nylons – Wash by hand or in the washing machine?
Washing machine – on delicate, in a bra bag.
Oven – Do you use the window or open the oven to check?
Depends on what I have going on in there. If it’s just a pizza or something, I tend to open the door. If there’s anything that is supposed to be rising in any way, shape or form, I leave that door closed.
Pizza – What do you put on yours?
Can’t do olives or anchovies. I am willing to try just about anything else. But my favorite pizza is just olive oil, tomatoes, onions, fresh basil and fresh mozzarella.
Quiet – What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
Read, crochet (I haven’t started a new project in a while – maybe I should do that), play computer games, snuggle with the hairdroppers
Recipe card box – Y/N?
Once upon a time, I had one. But the recipes got to be too many for the box, so now I have 2 binders.
Style of house – What style is your house?
1960s ranch with attached garage.
Tablecloths and napkins – Y/N?
Only at holidays. With the hairdroppers, are you kidding?
Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland?
Um…an organized toxic wasteland 🙂
Vacuum – How many times per week?
I vacuum the kitchen floor nearly every day because of cat litter, but lately, the rest of the house only gets it once a week (gasp!).
Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week?
Hopefully only 2. My work clothes. Laundry is supposed to be The Man’s job.
X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
At work I do but not at home. Unless I have family coming down, in which case I have lists everywhere.
Yard – Y/N Who does what?
Yes – we have a nice corner lot. I can’t touch freshly-cut grass without getting a rash, so The Man mows and trims, but everything else is unfortunately my domain.
Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
If I am not too lazy, the dishes. Otherwise, it’s making dinner.
