Yesterday I was doing my daily 'blog run', and I was so encouraged to read a bit of Anna's story on Renee's blog. So, I clicked on the link and went to check out her blog. This woman has totally got her head on straight! How awesome to find someone who is willing to be a homemaker and is diligently seeking to learn as much as she can about it before she gets married! Anyway, from there I checked out the blog of one of her commenters, where I found this little homemaking ABC survey. Enjoy!
Aprons – Y/N? If Y, what does your favorite look like?
I don't usually wear one, but I do have a pretty frilly green apron that was a wedding gift from a lady in our church.
Baking – Favorite thing to bake
I love to try new things, so I'm always looking for a new recipe to try!
Clothesline – Y/N?
Yes!! Although I should use it more than I do... somedays it is mcuh quicker to throw it all in the dryer!
Donuts – Have you ever made them Y/N?
Not yet....I have several different recipes to try though.
Every day – One homemaking thing you do every day
Garbage Disposal – Y/N?
No, but I would LOVE to have one!
Handbook – What is your favorite homemaking resource?
Hmmm... since baking and cooking are two of my favorite things, I use recipezaar.com a lot!
Ironing – Love it or hate it? Or hate it but love the results?
Hate it, but I do love a nice wrinkle-free shirt!
Junk drawer – Y/N? Where is it?
Yes. One in the kitchen, and a spot in one of my closets.
Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking?
Having a good supper ready when Keith comes home from work all tired and hungry!
Mop – Y/N?
Yes, I mop.
Oven – Do you use the window or open the oven to check?
Both...it depends on what I am cooking or baking.
Pizza – What do you put on yours?
Farmer Sausage, green peppers, onion, mushrooms, cheese, and my yummy homemade sauce!
Recipe card box – Y/N? What does it look like?
No. I have a lot of books, and some magazines.
Style of house – What style is your house?
We live in a 3 bedroom bungalo that was built in the 1960's.
Under the kitchen sink – Organized or toxic wasteland?
Vacuum – How many times per week?
Our vacuum cleaner SUCKS!! (Haha) So, when the floor looks like it needs to be vacuumed, I try, but it doesn't get a whole lot better.
Wash – How many loads of laundry do you do per week?
Hmm.. 3 or 4 loads of diapers, and probably 5 or 6 other loads.
X’s – Do you keep a daily list of things to do that you cross off?
Not usually, but I seem to get a lot more done if I make a list!
Zzz’s – What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed?
I'm not organized enough to have the same task everyday at the same time!! But, I DO tuck in the kids, and then check on them one last time before I crawl into bed! Then Keith and I have a chance to talk and relax.
I'm not going to tag anyone, because I just borrowed this idea, but if you would like to try this, go ahead!!
