Linda and Deb's Linky Party

Okay, Linda, I'm joining you and Deb.  I kinda like this one even though I don't usually do the linky parties.  This looked like fun!

Aprons - Y/N? If yes, what does your favorite look like? Goodness no.  I like them.  At one time I collected them, but wear them??? Too much fat around the middle.
See I told you!

Baking - Favorite thing to bake? I bake cookies brought from the freezer section. You know, the little squares ones.  I'm just not Susie-Homemaker, for sure!

Clothesline - Y/N? No, I had one growing up and when my first born was small.  I don't like how everything feels stiff when dry.  

Donuts - Have you ever made them? Actually, I have.  I made from frozen canned biscuits, cut hole in the middle with a lid, deep fried and coated with powdered sugar.  Did the same to the holes:)

Everyday - One homemaking thing you do everyday? Clean off the kitchen table.  I hate a cluttered table. 

Freezer - Do you have a separate deep freeze? What do I need with a freezer.  My frig isn't even full.  I buy one meal at a time.

Garbage Disposal - Y/N? I have never had one.

Handbook -What is your favorite homemaking resource? It used to be my mama.  I miss her so!  Now, it's google.

Ironing - Love it or hate it? HATE, HATE, HATE IT! Did all of it as a child.  No more!

Junk drawer - Y/N - Where is it? The question should have been "How many?" Yes, ONE IN EVERY ROOM.

Kitchen - Color and decorating scheme? Blue and White.  I wanted a beach cottage kitchen.

Love - What is your favorite part of homemaking? Raising my children.  I loved being a mommy.  It's all I wanted to be. 

This is the only photo of my kids when they were small that is on my hard drive. They were 10 and 7.  

Mop - Y/N-Yes.  Mr. H did it before he got a herniated disc.  Now it's me unless I hire my niece for $5.  

Nylons - Wash by hand or in washing machine? Nylons? Too hot for those in Central Georgia. 

Oven - Do you use the window to check on things or do you open the door? The door. 

Pizza - What do you put on yours? I like specialty pizzas.  I love spinach fettuccine pizza and chicken Alfreda and mushroom. YUM!

Quiet - What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? Pray, Read, and Nap

Recipe Card Box - Y/N- I have my mama's. 

Style of house-Ranch style, eclectic style. Of course, the shabby chic is my favorite room.

Tablecloth and napkins - Y/N- Table cloth, but nothing when we eat.  We don't have guests.  Our home is so small that we usually eat in the den/living room. This is for-display-only photo.

Under the kitchen sink - Organized or toxic wasteland?- YIKES!  Afraid to look!

Vacuum - How many times per week? Once

Wash - How many loads per week? Probably two per day.  

X's - Do you make a daily to do list and check it off as you do things? Sometimes.  I feel better when I do.

Yard - Y/N Who does What? Mr. H.  I hate to sweat! No, I'm not a prissy girl.  Just hate the heat.

ZZZ - What is the last homemaking task you do before you go to bed? Declutter the den.


  1. Yeah!! I am so glad you joined in!! (big smiles)--here comes the southern -mid western twang-whata mean you ain't no suzy homemaker?(fits of giggles)--btw, Bonnie, your not fat..your beautiful!! Blessings

  2. You are so CUTE!!! Not fat! I think we are too hard on ourselves!
    That was a fun post!

  3. This was such a fun post to read. Have a good week! Hugs, B

  4. I loved reading your answers to this, Bonnie. I liked that your mama was your homemaking resource. I do hope that one day my daughter will say the same about me. One of the highest compliments that anyone could pay me.

  5. That was fun! I think you look cute in that apron, but I do say the same thing myself.
    I've done the donuts with biscuits - yum!
    I have a clothesline but don't use it very often. I've never had a garbage disposal either.
    I hate ironing, and nylons too!

  6. That was a fun look adorable in that apron, and I love your blue and white kitchen.

    Hate to admit it, but I love to iron...No nylons here. Love to bake.

  7. The picture of you in the apron is cute. I am not a 'suzy homemaker' either; dont iron, dont like to cook, but I do; and definitely dont like to sweat in the hot summertime.

  8. You look cute in your apron. I laughed at some of your answers. You are like most of us, I fear. LOL. I love your cookie recipe.And the donuts. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  9. Interesting:) Fun list! I love aprons, vintage look ones! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  10. Fun post! It is interesting to learn a little more about our blogging buds! And, no, you are NOT fat...the pic with the apron is adorable...although, I prefer a chef type apron which does NOT accentuate my middle...I would say waistline, but I don't have!

  11. How fun! Feel like I know you better now =) When I was an Activity Director at a nursing home, we often made donuts out of biscuits on a Saturday morning. The residents loved them. (so did the staff!)
    Bless you today, Bonnie!

  12. Bonnie,
    I loved being a mommy. That's all I ever wanted to be too. After the kids were in school, I worked part time here and there, but my most beloved job was being a mom. It's so nice to get to know you a little better through this link party.

    What a cute picture of you and the apron.


  13. I have enjoyed this so much! What fun! I think I might have to do on my blog too! Enjoyed your answers and even got a good chuckle from some of them! Have a great day. Hugs and blessings Cindy
