tagged me with this, and I am finally getting to it.
Aprons- Y/N- Yes, when I remember. I have some vintage aprons from my estate sale/thrift store addiction. My favorite is a terry cloth apron with a rooster on it.
Baking-- Favorite thing to bake: Pineapple Upsidedown Cake. It's famous in these parts. It uses walnuts instead of cherries, and has a vanilla sauce to die for.
Clothesline- Y/N-- I wish! We live in the woods so I would just get damp, bird-pooped clothes. I hang them on a drying rack inside if they are not dryer safe.
Donuts-- No. I don't do deep frying here -- too much trouble
One homemaking thing you do every day-- There are so many. I would say cooking is the one I just can't skip for a day. Everything else can wait if need be.
Freezer-- Do you have a separate deep freeze? Yes, with a side of beef and anything on a great sale that I can buy lots of at once. My husband once bought 50 bags of chocolate chips because they were closing out a specialty brand of excellent chocolate for 79 cents a bag.
Garbage Disposal-- Y/N? Yes, but we can't use it or it will mess up our septic. I have a screen over it, and only run it once every week to take care of the little things that get in there.
Handbook-- What is your favorite homemaking resource? Reciepesource.com
Ironing--Love it or hate it? Neither. I do it when I must, and get a little satisfaction from it. However, I hate when my ironed clothing gets wrinkled when I wear it, and have been known to rail(loudly) against my seat belt for crumpling my freshly ironed lined skirt and blouse.
Junk drawer--Y/N? Where is it? All my drawers are junk drawers. I am not kidding.
Kitchen: Design and decorating? I have a plain kitchen, with tan walls and counters. Stainless stove, black oven and dishwasher. I have a collection of Madonna and Child folk art images on the wall, and a chalk board. I have a large kitchen that included a hallway and a desk and a pantry and a powder room, so it is a busy, busy place.
Love: What is your favorite part of homemaking? Decorating. I love estate sales and thrift stores and love finding unusual odds and ends and making a statement with it in the decor. I detest actual cleaning, but my treasures don't look so great under a layer of dust, so cleaning must be done.
Mop Y/N -- I use a "Floor Mate". LOVE IT. It is broken right now, so I have been spot cleaning and it is driving me nuts. I'll probably break out the old mop and bucket this week.
Nylons-- I haven't worn nylons since my wedding day 14.5 years ago. And I never will again if I can help it. Mysogeny, I tell you. That's what nylons are.
Oven-- Do you use the window or open the door to check? Open the door, and stab what ever is in there.
Pizza-- What do you put on yours? sausage, green olives and onion.
Quiet-- What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? Make a cup of tea and retreat to my room to read whatever I am currently reading.
Recipe Card Box Y/N? Well, I have a recipe card box I use for an address book. But my actual recipes are in a few cook books and notebooks, or in my head.
Style of house-- A 50's ranch that we have added to with a Prarie style design. I love it. HUGE windows, deep eaves, simple decor.
Tablecloths and napkins? Sometimes, when I think of it.
Under the kitchen sink-- organized or toxic wasteland? Organized. I have dish soap, scrubbies, trash bags and Lysol wipes.
Vacuum-- how many times per week? Once regularly, but frequent messes require attention here and there almost every day. But real, in the corners vacuuming, once a week.
Wash-- How many loads of laundry do you do in a week? I have two sets of washers and dryers. They each run about 2 loads five days a week. So that's about 20 loads a week. Give or take.
X's-- Do you keep a daily list of things to do and cross them off?-- Just in my head, which makes me a little scattered and disorganized. But if I write it down, I add every conceivable item on it and set myself up for instant failure. I have been known to write a list after the day is done of what I have completed, then cross them all out. As if I could fool myself somehow, and yet, I get satisfaction from it anyway.
Yard-- Who does what? My son mows the lawn areas of our 3 acres. There are quite a few "wild" areas. I pretty much do everything else. All I really want now is my own chain saw so I can stop sawing the branchs that need trimming by hand. Someday.
Zzz's--Advancing the laundry, feeding the pets, and turning out the lights and locking the doors.
