a tag and funny list

Saw this on Charlene's blog and thought I'd go for it...

Aprons- Y/N? Nope. I'm a pretty neat cook, though!
Baking- Favorite thing to bake? I love to bake Irish Brown Bread for my dad because it always makes him happy. :)
Clothesline- Y/N? Not since I last visited my family in Ireland. My Granny's dryer really didn't dry, so we'd hang the clothes out on the clothesline and then bring them in in the evenings and drape them on the radiators.
Donuts- Ever made them? No, but always wanted to.
Everyday- One homemaking thing you do everyday? Laundry. Lots of laundry.
Freezer- Do you have a separate deep freezer? No, but we have a second refrigerator (in the garage). We have more in the freezer there than we do in that fridge.
Garbage Disposal- Y/N? Yes, but I rarely use it.
Handbook- Y/N? I'm always game for a handbook. Might not use it, but I like to have them around!
Ironing- Love it or hate it? Hate it!
Junk Drawer- Where is it? Which one? lol There's one in the Kitchen that's filled with coupons, etc. There's also one in my dresser where I stick stuff that I need to hold on to but that don't really have a "place."
Kitchen- Design and decorating? I dream of the day when I can create the kitchen of my dreams. For now I have to be content with a fresh coat of paint and cute cushions on the window seat (thanks to my mom!).
Love- What is your favorite part of homemaking? hmmm...I like it when my house is clean. I don't enjoy doing the cleaning (and don't do it often enough), but I love the feeling I have when it's clean and tidy.
Mop- Y/N? Yes. Real mopping, too, not just using the Wet Swiffer.
Nylons- Wash them by hand or in the washer? Nylons? lol IF I wear tights/hose, I wash them in the washer. I'm much more likely to wear knee-his, though (also washed in the washer).
Oven- Do you use the window or open it to check? Open it, baby!
Pizza- What do you put on yours? Pepperoni!
Quiet- What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? Quiet moments? What are they? Oh yeah...they're the hours when the rest of the family is asleep! lol Usually I do a little digiscrapping!
Recipe card box- Y/N? Not a box but several books (4x6 photo albums filled with recipe cards)
Style of house- ranch with an open floor plan
Tablecloths and napkins- Y/N? only for holiday dinners
Under the kitchen sink- Nada. Ok, maybe some Tupperware that overflowed from the next cabinet.
Vacuum- How many times a week? 1-2, though it should be more often!
Wash- How many loads do you do a week? Who knows! I probably do 1 or 2 loads a day.
X’s-Do you keep a list and cross items off when they are complete? Well, I usually have a list, but I either lose the list or forget to cross items off. LOL!
Yard-who does the work? Chris does. (Unless I get really impatient and frustrated!)
ZZZ’s- Not nearly enough!

If you read all of this, consider yourself tagged! Leave me a comment so that I'll know to go check your blog!

What a fun treat! I'm glad you decided to do this too :)

Jasmine loved your circus pictures. She thought the elephants were great! We'll have to watch to see if the circus comes to town, because she'd love it too :)
