Homemaking Meme

I snagged this one over at SFO Mom's blog. She left it open-tagged, so I tagged myself.

Aprons – Yes or No? If Yes, what does your favorite look like?
I have two, but I rarely remember to use them... or where they are. One is a red full body apron with a big white duck on the front, complete with ribbon around the neck. Homemade, so of course it's the favorite. The other is a little black waist apron with pinstripes, restaurant style.

Baking – Favorite thing to bake
Bread in the bread maker. I rarely do any other baking.

Clothesline – Yes or No?
We have one, but I don't use it often enough. Half the year it's impossible to use.

Donuts - have you ever made them?
Once, sort of. I took "whomp" biscuits (the ones in a tube that you whomp and the tube pops open) and fried them and frosted them. They came out pretty good.

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

Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze?
Yeah, but it isn't big enough.

Garbage Disposal – Yes or No?
Not yet.

Handbook – What is your favorite homemaking resource?
I don't really follow a book much. I guess my mom is my best resource.

Ironing – Love it or hate it? Or hate it but love the results?
Iron... that's the funny heavy thingie with a cord in the laundry room, right?

Junk drawer – Yes or No? Where is it?
Alas, the bottom drawer in the kitchen.

Kitchen – Color and decorating scheme
Roosters. The house came that way.

Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking?
The kiss when my husband gets home.

Mop – Yes or No?
I prefer (and need!) a scrub brush and pail.

Nylons – Wash by hand or in the washing machine?
I treat them about like the iron.

Oven – Do you use the window or open the oven to check?
I usually open it up.

Pizza – What do you put on yours?
Papa Murphy's Chicago Style with creamy garlic sauce.

Quiet – What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
Get yelled at by the kids.

Recipe card box – Yes or No? What does it look like?
It looks like a recipe card box.

Style of house – What style is your house?
1950's low end fast build military shoebox with a nicer add on in back.

Tablecloths and napkins – Yes or No?
Hahahahahahahahahahahaaahahaha hahaha ahaaaahahahahaha

Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland?
in between

Vacuum – How many times per week?
About as often as dishes break or cereal spills.

Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week?
7ish, but the kids often do their own in addition to that.

X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
Yes. I call them dreams.

Yard – Yes or No? Who does what?
I command, the kids argue. Eventually hubbie mows.

Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
Put the baby down.

Tag -- I grabbed the tag. Now it's your turn.
