ABC's of Homemaking Meme

From Tracy's.

Aprons - Y/N? If yes, what does your favorite look like?
My 'apron' is whatever Old Navy t-shirt I'm sporting.

Baking- Favorite thing to bake?
My body, poolside.

Clothes line - Y/N ?
Aprons, clothes lines - who wrote this meme, my Great-Grandmother (God rest her soul)?

Donuts - Have you ever made them?
No, but Bittyman wants me to get one of these so we can make donut-like pancake puffs.

Everyday - One homemaking thing you do everyday.
Make coffee.

Freezer - Do you use a deep freeze?
Dan bought a chest freezer for my birthday last year. Although I didn't talk to him for days afterward, I have to admit it's pretty darn handy.

Garbage Disposer Y/N?
Not having one is an option?

Handbook - What's your favorite homemaking resource?
The Food Network and HGTV

Ironing - Love it or Hate it?
Don't do it.

Junk Drawer - Y/N? If yes, where is it?
Yes, in the kitchen. But I'm pretty clutter-phobic. It's not very junky.

Kitchen - color & decorating scheme.
Rich Creme with an accent wall in Mother Nature (green). Decorated in Tuscany meets Pier 1 on clearance.

Love - what is your favorite part of homemaking?
Anything that involves the Heroes. They're entertainingly helpful little critters.

Mop - Y/N?
Swiffer wet, almost daily.

Nylons, machine or hand wash?
I only wear them on Christmas. I splurge for a new pair yearly.

Oven - Do you use the window or open the oven to check?
Window. Safer with Ittyboy around.

Pizza - what do you put on yours?
Black olives and extra cheese for the Heroes. BBQ chicken for me. Dan will eat anything. Darn, now I'm craving CPK.

Quiet - what do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
Sit. Usually at the computer where I read blogs, play Scramble and even pray.

Recipe Card Box - Y/N?
Box, no. Blog, yes.

Style of house - what style is your house?
Whatever they call the stucco/tile roof style that's popular out here in the west.

Tablecloths and napkins?
Napkins. A tablecloth + Ittyboy is asking for new dishes... hmmm... I'm kinda tired of my 12-year-old set...

Under the kitchen sink - organized or toxic wasteland?
Nothing but the trash can and stored paper towels. Ittyboy has mastered child-proof locks.

Vacuum - how many times per week?
How about per day? Usually after each meal.

Wash - how many loads of laundry do you do per week?
Again, per day. At least 2.

X's - Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
No. Sorta follow the Flylady system. (But don't sign up for her e-mails. They'll clutter your inbox.)

Yard - Who does what?
The HOA.

ZZZ's - What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
Picking up the countless plastic toys scattered about, briefly fantasizing about tossing them all into the trash, but realizing the psychological damage that would cause, I instead return them to their proper baskets and bins.

I tag anyone who wants to play. Let me know in the comment box if you do.

Long meme, but fun one.
I'll play along. :)

And YES to what you said about Flylady! I signed up briefly years ago, and could not BELIEVE how much e-mail they sent out! Crazy.

I bought one of those pancake puff pans at Canaan's request. Think I got it at Walmart for a lot less than the link you posted! Canaan likes his topped with honey and powdered sugar, like a sopapilla. I highly recommend it!
