Thank you for your comments on my Five Senses Weekend post. All the muffins are gone but they were handy for snacks and we even had them for dinner, along with some scrambled eggs. I am *trying* to make a mini stuffed lamb as part of the baby gift. I had to rip the stitches out of the head 3 times and now the legs aren't right. When I saw "Simple to make" I should have run away then! I will be sure to share photos of all the gifts and hopefully the lamb too, as soon as I'm finished.
My friend, Mrs. Monise tagged me for this fun homemaking meme. Here are my answers as well as some pictures....
Aprons – Y/N? If Y, what does your favorite look like? Yes, I wear an apron while baking. My favorite apron is this vintage patchwork one. It's very tiny. I'm pretty sure I couldn't get it around my left leg! ;0)
Baking – Favorite thing to bake: Looking at my recipe section in the sidebar, I’d have to say desserts!
Clothesline – Y/N? Yes, but I don’t use it like I thought I would. It does make a wonderful photo prop as seen in the apron photo! :0)
Donuts – Have you ever made them? I love donuts but I’m too scared of deep frying to make them.
Every day – One homemaking thing you do every day: Sweep the kitchen floor.
Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze? No
Garbage Disposal – Y/N? Yes. I have a special knack for clogging them up too. Just ask Phillip!
Handbook – What is your favorite homemaking resource? Home Comforts by Cheryl Mendelson.
Ironing – Love it or hate it? Not a fan.
Junk drawer – Y/N? Where is it? In the kitchen. Isn't this a requirement in every home?!
Kitchen – Color and decorating scheme- Yellow walls, oak cupboards, lots of tea cups and teapots. You can see pictures in my sidebar.
Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking? When everything is nice and clean and I even have a plan for dinner!
Mop – Y/N? I do not own a mop. I clean the kitchen floor on my hands and knees with a cloth.
Nylons – Wash by hand or in the washing machine? Machine. It has a “wash by hand” setting though!
Oven – Do you use the window or open the oven to check? Open the oven. Bad, I know.
Pizza – What do you put on yours? Mushrooms and black olives.
Quiet – What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? Read or play the piano.
Recipe card box –I have one but never use it. I print my recipes out and put them in three-ring binders.
Style of house? One story, brick. 1800 square feet.
Tablecloths and napkins-I have several tablecloths and runners. I have cloth napkins but use paper ones too. My tablecloths are in a basket in the laundry room.
Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland? Organized.
Vacuum – How many times per week? Several times, as needed. Vacuuming might be my favorite chore.
Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week? Hmmm.....5-8. All the laundry (except dishcloths and towels) go into these 3 laundry bags in my bathroom. It looks like I'm washing reds next!
X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off? Sometimes on paper, I always have a list in my head.
Yard – Y/N? Who does what? I do the gardening. I also love to trim the shrubs and bushes. Phillip cuts the grass.
Spring time comes early in Texas. Today, I saw some Irish moss peeking up out of the ground.
Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed? Make sure all the doors are locked. Sometimes I check twice. :0)
Thanks for reading my homemaking meme. If you would like to play too, consider yourself tagged! Be sure to let me know, so I can come read yours!
