ABCs of Homemaking

This was on The American Homemaker, and I thought it was cute.

Aprons--y/n If y, what does your fave look like?
I have a few basic aprons but they don't fit around my growing belly.

Baking--Favorite thing to bake?
Many things. Muffins, biscuits, tortillas, pancakes, desserts, and on and on

Clothes line?
No, I don't have or use one.

Donuts--Have you ever made them?
My uncle gave me two recipes but I haven't used them.

Everyday--One homemaking thing you do every day?
Cook

Freezer--Do you have a separate deep freeze?
Yes, but we don't have the space for it. It's in storage until we get a new garage built.

Garbage Disposer?
Yes!!

Handbook--What is your favorite homemaking resource?
Internet is all I really have.

Ironing--Love it or Hate it? Or hate it but love the results?
I hate ironing. I prefer to toss it back in the dryer and call it good.

Junk Drawer--y/n? Where is it?
I think the tops of counters and dressers is where my junk accumulates.

Kitchen--color and decorating scheme.
Primary Red and Cobalt Blue - a modern look.

Love--what is your favorite part of homemaking?
Doing things on my own schedule.

Mop--y/n?
Our floors have to be hand scrubbed, not wet mopped. They are far overdue.

Nylons, machine or hand wash?
I don't wear them. I hate them. In the winter I wear long skirts and boots.

Oven--do you use the window or open the oven to check?
both. Usually I turn the light on to keep an eye on stuff. Then when the timer goes off I open and check.

Pizza--What do you put on yours?
Peppers, onions, and some meat.

Quiet--What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
play game boy Dr. Mario or Tetris.

Recipe Card Box--y/n? What does it look like?
I have an apple covered cook book I write recipes in. I try them 2 or 3 times and if everyone loves it I write it in the book.

Style of house--What style is your house?
Small and cozy. Decorated in a modern style throughout. Lots of red, blue and abstract paintings.

Tablecloths or Placemats?
That's just more laundry.

Under the kitchen sink--organized or toxic wasteland?
Organized. I have racks attached to the doors for plastic wraps and foil. Everything is in order.

Vacuum--How many times per week?
Probably once on average. Some weeks MORE and some weeks not at all.

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

X's--Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
No not really. I have a running list of things that need to be done.

Yard--y/n? Who does what?
Peyton mows and that's about all we do to it.

ZZZ's--what is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
I don't think I do the same thing regularly before bed except check my email.

Anyone else want to play the ABCs?
