I follow Jenni @ Live Called and about 2 weeks ago she posted this meme. I've been wanting to join in since reading her answers but hadn't had a chance until now. After you read my answers copy the questions and post it on your blog with your own answers. You can link up and join Jenni here.
Aprons – Yes or No?
Yes & No, it depends on what I'm making (i.e. fried foods) and what I am already wearing. I do love pretty aprons!
Bathrooms – How many do you have?
1 - and for now I'm happy we only have one so I don't have more to keep clean. : ) Bathrooms are not my favorite area to clean.
Clothesline – Do you have one?
Yes! I love it especially for hanging cloth diapers. Lately I rarely put clothes on it due to my husband's allergies and asthma.
Dusting – How often?
Depends on the time of year, but normally around once a week
Everyday – One housekeeping task you do everyday?
Whole house tidy. I like to go to each room each morning and do a quick pick up. Toys, clutter, clothes, etc all get picked up and put away at this time.
Family – Does your family help with household chores?
My 2 1/2 year old son loves to wash the bathtub and help when I clean the bathroom. He also helps unload the dishwasher. My 1 year old loves to 'try' to help load the dishwasher but that's more of a playtime in the water. : ) My husband helps me keep up with the dishes when he is able to.
Garbage Disposal – Do you have one?
No, currently we live in a old home, built probably well before garbage disposals were designed. :)
Home Management Notebook – Do you use one? What’s in it?
Yes & no, I have one but I have gotten out of the routine of using it. You can read what's in my binder here.
Ironing – Love it or hate it?
I only iron when sewing so I guess I love it, because I love sewing! :)
Junk Drawer – Where is it?
I lost 2 drawers when I decided I wanted a dishwasher added in the kitchen, and one of those was the junk drawer. I still don't have a junk drawer but I do get a small pile in the corner of the kitchen counter, thankfully because it is on the counter I don't allow it to stay a pile very long. :)
Kitchen – Design and decor?
I've never been good with designs and decor so my kitchen is pretty simple. It's yellow with a few plaques that say Faith, Hope, Love in yellow, red and green. My old dream kitchen used to be blue and green with white - it just sounds so clean and bright in my head. :)
Love – What is your favorite part of homemaking?
Finding new ways to become more efficient in my calling as homemaker.
Mopping – How often does it get done?
About once a week or when something gets spilled. :)
Natural Cleaning Products– Do you use them?
Yes! That's all I ever use. I love these products and then homemade cleaners from this book.
Overwhelmed – What part of homemaking stresses you out the most?
Deep cleaning - I am not always able to get the deep cleaning done and that stresses me out. :) But, at least the regular cleaning gets done. :)
Pets – Do you have any mess-making critters in the house?
Yes, we have one small dog inside (mostly) and then 2 outside kittens.
Quiet – What do you enjoy doing when you get a quiet moment?
Mostly read. Read my bible, read a current book, read articles....
Recipes – How do you organize them?
Oh, right now they are a mess. I have my favorite cookbook and then I have a binder full of all the printed off recipes I've collected. One day I have to find a way to organize them to make it efficient and easy to find what I'm looking for.
Style of House – What kind of home do you live in?
We have a 3 bedroom 1 bathroom little farm house. :)
Tablecloth – Do you use one on a regular basis?
No, with a toddler tablecloths get too dirty and add extra laundry.
Under the Kitchen Sink – What do you have under there?
It's sort of messy right now but I have some vases, dishwasher detergent, vinegar and some other cleaning things.
Vacuuming – How many times a week does it get done?
With only 1 room in the house with carpet it only gets done about twice a week.
Washing Clothes – How many loads do you do a week?
I wash at least one load a day due to cloth diapering.
X’s – Do you keep a to-do list and cross the tasks off?
Yes! I must have a to-do list. The satisfaction of crossing tasks off a list keep me going!! Recently in an attempt to reduce my waste of papers I am trying an app on my iPhone called Any.Do, so far I love it!
Yard Work – Who does what?
For the most part my husband keeps up the yard work. Gardening has become a family event as 2 boys love getting in the dirt! :)
ZZZ’s – What is your last housekeeping task of the day?
Normally putting a load of diapers in the washer before going to bed. :)
