Homemaking meme

Homemaking meme...

Thing? As in singular? Cookies. No wait... cake.... no, no... uh....bread.... oh dear.... I can’t pick ONE!!!!

No clothesline.

Donuts – Have you ever made them?
No, I haven’t made them yet. But they ARE on my list of “to be made in the future“ along with homemade marshmallows. Yum!

Pick up after everyone (including myself)

Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze?
No. A dream for one day...

Garbage Disposal – Y/N?

Drawer? Or should that be “drawers“? HA! I’ve got... oh, do I have to be honest???? I have 3.

Kitchen – Color and decorating scheme
It is currently white cabinets with beigish lineoleum and a sort of flowery wallpaper. But we have had major water damage to the floor in our kitchen and we are getting a new floor in just a few weeks!! Looks like it’ll be hardwood! WOOHOOO!!!! And, who knows? Maybe I can finally get myself to pull that wallpaper down and paint!!!

Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking?
Keeping the house neat and tidy so that Mr. U always comes home to it that way.

Hand wash keeps them longer.

Read blogs, of course!

It’s a simple wood box.

1970 ranch style.

Tablecloths and napkins – Y/N?
Oh we use napkins, yes!! But they are the disposable kind!! LOL!.

Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland?
Nothing toxic under there, just tons of vases that, for some reason, I think I need to keep.

Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week?

X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
I don’t do this everyday, but I work much more efficiently when I do make a list for myself. I should strive to make a list each day to keep myself on task.

Yard – Y/N? Who does what?
Mr. U does the mowing, but I do the rest. I LOOOOOOOVE gardening and prettying up the yard with flowers and plants!!!! I love the smell of dirt!!!!!

Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
I always make sure the kitchen sink is empty and then I scrub the sink with my dishcloth.

Hello. Mrs. Klause of (www.clothedwithscarlet.typepad.com) here. I just wanted to thank you for your kind and encouraging words. I was thinking of making Part 3 the end of today but I just might tackle one more project. ;0) Also, as I arrived to thank you. I see that you are looking for an apron. I just happen to make and sell them. Custom...you tell me the colors, theme, etc. Maybe I can serve you. Have a wonderful day with the Lord!
