Home Keeping A-Z

I saw this meme yesterday, and thought I would contribute. Feel free to play along in the comments or on your own blog. Everybody knows how to copy and paste, right? 🙂

Aprons – Y/N? If Y, what does your favorite look like? Yes- I’ve been wearing them faithfully for a year now, and they have really saved my shirts! I couldn’t pick a favorite, they all end up getting stained from use.
Baking – Favorite thing to bake – Cookies. Or bread.
Clothesline – Y/N? Not at this time, but I hope to outside the new house.
Donuts – Have you ever made donuts? No, due to an incident with very hot oil (which my dad could relate to you sometime) when I was a teen, the most frying I do is popcorn.
Every day – One homemaking thing you do every day- laundry
Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze? Not at this time, but I hope to in the new house. Notice a trend?
Garbage Disposal – Y/N? We have one right now, but won’t in the new house. They smell bad and I’m scared of them.
Handbook – What is your favorite homemaking resource? The Internet
Ironing – Love it or hate it? I’m ambivalent, probably because I haven’t ever had to do it very often.
Junk drawer – Y/N? How about ‘junk island’ and ‘junk table’?
Kitchen – Color and decorating. In the new house I want a Mediterranean theme, with yellows, terra cotta, and blue.
Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking? When I stop to think about it, I realize to even have more than four walls is to be blessed far beyond many in the world. I’m grateful to have a house to care for.
Mop – Y/N? Luke wishes I would.
Nylons – Wash by hand or in the washing machine? Washing machine
Oven – Do you use the window or open the oven to check? Open the oven door- any gingerbread men would be long gone
Pizza – What do you put on yours? Personally, I like a good supreme. The kids do cheese and sometimes pepperoni, so that is usually what we have.
Quiet – What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? Sleep, read, lately some sewing
Recipe card box – Y/N? Yes, and am accumulating some doozies on the computer that, until I get a new printer cartridge, will continue to take over my bookmarks
Style- What style is your house? Late prefab, with modular accents
Tablecloths and napkins – Y/N? No, but I would like to get into the habit- may help keep table surfaces clear. Paper napkins.
Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland? There’s a lock on the handles- what do you think?
Vacuum – How many times per week? Ideally, three to four. But we often settle for a little ‘crunch’
Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week? 20 on average
X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off? No. I keep a running list of grocery needs, and write something down that has to be remembered that day, but never am consistently keeping a daily list.
Yard – Y/N? Who does what? Luke does it all. Superyardman.
Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed? Usually something in the kitchen, or folding laundry.

  1. I’ve wanted to discuss laundry with you for an update. I first noticed you do it every day and assummed you no longer have Monday laundry day…but with 20 loads you might! I cannot complain about the 7-10 loads per week. I do one load of clothes every day, and some days a load of linens n things. 😉 I’ve been using tablecloths, and that adds to the laundry.
