My Very First Meme

Since both Eileen AND Sharon did this, did I really have a choice?

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

Absolutely YES! I love aprons. I suppose it reminds me of my Great Grandmother who raised me. She always wore an apron. I only have one. It's bright red and I needed a pocket so I sewed a dishcloth onto the front of it. Yes, I really did.

Baking - Favorite thing to bake

I really like to bake, but my favorite right now would probably be the nutritionally void, feather lite, white rolls that always makes the family come running.

Clothesline - Y/N?

If an inside clothes drying rack counts, then yes.

Donuts - Have you ever made them?

When I was a little girl, maybe 12 or so, I was making doughnuts and had poured the oil into a metal container. While cleaning up, I picked up the container before the oil had a chance to cool and it burned my fingerprints off for a long time. So, short answer, yes. But not since then.

Every day - One homemaking thing you do everyday

Dishes

Freezer - Do you have a separate deep freeze?

Yes, a small one.

Garbage Disposal - Y/N?

Yes. Love it.

Handbook - What is your favorite homemaking source?

Home Comforts : The Art and Science of Keeping House by Cheryl Mendelson. I've never seen a more thorough book. Ever.

Ironing - Love it or hate it? Or hate it but love the results?

Don't love it. Don't hate it. Only iron what is necessary. I air dry most of our clothing and shape it when it's drying.

Junk drawer - Y/N? Where is it?

Of course, in the kitchen, just like everyone else. ;)

Kitchen - Color and decorating scheme

I don't really do decorating schemes in my home, but the majority of the room is oak and stainless.

Love - What is your favorite part of homemaking?

Knowing that I have blessed my husband and family.

Mop - Y/N?

Yes.

Nylons - Wash by hand or in the washing machine?

Machine

Oven - Do you use the window or open the oven to check?

I *try* to use the window. But I usually end up peeking inside.

Pizza - What do you put on yours?

I'm not picky. DH loves tons of meat and the girls like cheese. I can do either (or both!)

Quiet - What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?

I like to sit with a cup of tea and read the bible. Sometimes I'll read new blogs! Or do a meme. ;) Quiet moments don't come too often yet.

Recipe card box - Y/N? What does it look like?

No card box. I have a HUGE folder. I definitely need a new system. It takes me forever to find anything.

Style of house - What style is your house?

A 1980's tri-level.

Tablecloths and napkins - Y/N?

No cloth on the table. But cloth napkins, yes.

Under the kitchen sink - Organized or toxic wasteland?

Reasonably organized.

Vacuum - How many times per week?

I try to vacuum the den several times a week. The rest of the house, at least once a week.

Wash - How many loads of laundry do you do per week?

10-15

X’s - Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?

Only if there are things out of the ordinary that need to be done.

Yard - Y/N? Who does what?

Oh yeah, love the yard. We garden a little. DH and I are in the planning stages of planting more fruit trees and berry bushes. DH usually mows. Though I did it for years. I don't mind it a bit. He cares for the pool.

Zzz’s - What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?

Loading any last items into the dishwasher and running it.
