I obviously missed this a while back when Swistle tagged me… I am making up for it now. And I need something mindless… so hear goes.
Oh, and I tag B. for this one. Get some bloggin’ done missy.
Aprons- Y/N? Yes, One. Its very Laura Ashley-ish with lots of little flowers and leaves. It keeps me from getting the grease stains that never come out of my clothes.
Baking- Favorite thing to bake? Brownies. I don’t bake much.
Clothesline- Y/N? Wish I did. I might string one up this summer on the patio.
Donuts- Ever made them? NOpe.
Everyday- One homemaking thing you do every day? Straighten the living room.
Freezer- Do you have a separate deep freezer? Nope.
Garbage Disposal- Y/N? Yes, and in the words of Weezy (PBS reference, not sit-com), Love it!
Handbook- Y/N? I don’t know about this one. If I could have a handbook to life, love and the universe, I would use it.
Ironing- Love it or hate it? Gad. I smite my iron and consign to the depths of my dungeon like understairs storage. If I would spend the money on a good iron and ironing board that didn’t wiggle, I might like it more.
Junk Drawer- Where is it? Kitchen, small drawer.
Kitchen- Design and decorating? I live in an apartment. The kitchen is walk through (two entrances) galley. I have about four feet of counter space and that’s it. My decorating is making sure the counter is clean.
Love- What is your favorite part of homemaking? I haven’t decided on this yet. As a full time homemaker, I love not having to ‘cram’ housework. Otherwise, I sort of like it when my son wants to cook with me.
Mop- Y/N? Yeah, i have one and its rusting on the patio. I hand wash the little bits of linoleum we have in the kitchen and bathrooms. Its not that much.
Nylons- Wash by hand or in the washer? Don’t own any!!!! Muhahahahahahaha.
Oven- Do you use the window or open it to check? Both. I need to smell it too.
Pizza- What do you put on yours? Cheese and mushrooms. I do like the gourmet veg at Papa Murphy’s — its got spinich, zucchini and tons of other stuff. I like beef sausage if I can find it…
Quiet- What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? Read, watch TV, computer.
Recipe card box- Y/N? I have one, I do not use it.
Style of house- Townhouse. It feels bigger than it is because of the stairs. Lucky me.
Tablecloths and napkins- Y/N? Yes and yes. But the table is being used for the computer and we eat at the table in the living room and we do use napkins. Paper ones.
Under the kitchen sink-Pans. We have almost ZERO undercounter storage. This is in direct disproportion to the other storage we do have (eight closets in a two bedroom).
Vacuum- How many times a week? Every other day in the living room. Do not EVER under any circumstances have a black accent rug in your living room or you will have to vacuum it all the time.
Wash- How many loads do you do a week? Four or five. I do them on one day of the week at the laundromat. Sometimes I miss having a W/D at home… but I don’t miss endless piles of laundry to be folded every single day. Nicer to have to do it all at once.
Xs- Do you keep a list of things to do and cross them off? ONly when its really important.
Yard- Who does what? We don’t have a yard of our own. There is a yard outside, but its maintained by the complex. As for the patio, I do it mostly until the husband gets sick of it and martyr cleans it. (just like every other cleaning)
ZZs- What is your last homemaking task for the day? Cleaning up any toys that will piss me off to step on during the night or in the morning.
