ABC's of HOMEMAKING.......

A ~Aprons--y/n If y, what does your favorite look like?
Oh my, we don’t want to mention aprons. I love aprons! I collect them. Not sure which one is my favorite. I'm also a messy cook, so it's a good thing I like aprons.

B ~ Baking--Favorite thing to bake?
I love to bake. I guess cookies would be my favorite. But my favorite cookie is No Bake Cookies.

C ~ Clothes line?
Yes, I have one. Don’t use it as much as I should, tho.

D ~ Donuts--Have you ever made them?
I don’t make them very often. I remember the ones my mom made when we were young. She made them from the Pillsbury biscuits in the tube. Put a hole in them and drop them in hot oil. They were delicious!

E ~ Everyday--One homemaking thing you do everyday?
The dishes, and I hate doing the dishes.

F ~ Freezer--Do you have a separate deep freeze?
You’re not going to believe this, but we have 3 separate freezers. An old deep freeze, my husband’s step dad gave us, it is in the garage. A large upright and a small upright we bought the 2nd summer of our marriage (that was 29 years ago and it still works good-knock on wood)

G ~ Garbage Disposer?
No garbage disposer-unless that would be the person who takes out the trash.

H ~ Handbook--What is your favorite homemaking resource?
Experience, neighbors and family. Don’t know what I’d do without them sometimes.

I ~ Ironing--Love it or Hate it? Or hate it but love the results?
I hate to iron. Usually only iron when I’m sewing.

J ~ Junk Drawer--y/n? Where is it?
We have a couple in the kitchen. They get cleaned out sometimes.

K ~ Kitchen--color and decorating scheme.
Red and yellow. I guess the scheme would be kind of country and retro.

L ~ Love--what is your favorite part of homemaking?
I love to cook, just don’t like cleaning up afterwards.

M ~ Mop--y/n?
I have a mop and a swifter (they are great).

N ~ Nylons, machine or hand wash?
Don’t wear them very often, but they are hand washed.

O ~ Oven--do you use the window or open the oven to check?
I’m always peeking.

P ~ Pizza--What do you put on yours?
Love pepperoni and mushrooms. I cook mine on a baking stone (they are great, nothing burns on them).

Q ~ Quiet--What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?
I like to write or just rest and do nothing.

R ~ Recipe Card Box--y/n? What does it look like?
I have one that I put together in the 70s. It was one of those where you get a packet in the mail every few weeks or so. Those are on one side of it and on the other side are my recipes I’ve put on index cards. I have tons of recipe books. I’ve put together 2 family cookbooks, they are my favorite.

S ~ Style of house--What style is your house?
We have a ranch house on an acre lot out in the country.

T ~Tablecloths or Place mats?
I love table cloths; that is something else I collect. But I rarely use them and I rarely use place mats. I take my old vintage table cloths to our family reunion and put them on the picnic tables.

U ~ Under the kitchen sink--organized or toxic wasteland?
I guess you could say it is kind of organized.

V ~ Vacuum--How many times per week?
Well, I vacuum when it looks like it needs it. Gets vacuumed more since I got a small one at a yard sale. Not bulky and much easier to use. (I guess you can tell I hate housework)

W ~ Wash--How many loads of laundry do you do per week?
I lose count. I wash a lot!

X's--Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
I have before and it works. I get a lot more done when I do that.

Y ~ Yard--y/n? Who does what?
My youngest son cuts the grass with the riding mower. He sometimes trims with the push, but when he doesn’t, either my husband or I do that part. It’s good exercise.

ZZZ's ~ what is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
Clean off the kitchen table and make sure the door is locked.

I saw this at, Crafty Passions, who saw it at That British Woman ,who saw it at Niki's Rural Writings, who saw it at Pieces from Me, who saw it at Coffee Time At Home.
