What chores do you enjoy?

I have to be honest.  I do not enjoy housework.  Right now I need to vacuum and dust big time.  The bathroom needs cleaning and the guest room/studio is a disaster.  

However, there is one chore I thoroughly enjoy.
I love to iron!  I love how you can quickly make progress through a stack of linens.  I love how you need to pay attention (so you don't get burned, of course) but that you can also have a conversation, listen to music or the radio, watch TV or a movie, or just plan your next project.  I love how things go from sloppy to neat and tidy.

Ahhh....that was fun.

What is your favorite chore?  Or do you have one?


  1. Are you kidding me..I just cleaned my 22 yr son's bathroom...argh!!!!
    The grandboys and him are ..can we say..messy.!!!! This is ridiculous..I hate bathrooms!!!

    Now..what chore do I enjoy..outdoor anything!! And organizing..I love to organize!!

    Okay I will quit complaining!! Companies a HAD to be


  2. None! But I do like a clean house and clean clothes, so I do the chores anyway.
    I'm with you Cindy, I like to organize.

  3. Oh my goodness Sweet Bee, I love to iron too! Do NOT like other house work, but ironing can be so lovely. I love to iron a cotton shirt, or a cotton table cloth. I do draw the line at sheets ;-) They just go on the bed after tumbling in the dryer.

  4. I can't think of any household chores I like but I do like the satisfaction of a nice clean house! That sprinkle bottle next to your iron! My mum had one when I was young and I totally forgot about it until I saw yours! Is it new?

  5. He,he,he,...I can't even find my ironing board, much less my iron. Good thing we're a t-shirt and jeans kind of family!

    I suppose I really should pick SOME chore and do it before I end up on some TV show!

    I understand what you mean about ironing though, I guess I'm the same way about doing dishes.

    Beautiful weather today, huh? My daughter threw a fit 'cause she wanted to go swimming! Ha! Little doesn she realize how cold that water is!

  6. Hi, just found your lovely blog! I am a fellow Californian..
    I HAVE to have that laundry sprinkler bottle. My mom had one when we were little it was a Canada Dry bottle with a sprinkler doohicky on top..I have dreams about that thing.
    I dont have any fave chores, but I do like to iron..isnt that wierd I guess, kind of therpeutic to me.
    Least fave, bathrooms hands down.
    Stop by and say hi!


  7. Sweet Bee-You can have your ironing! I only iron when I sew, and it's been a long time since I have sewn. I like to wipe down the stove and counters nice and clean and wash the bathroom sink. Even if the rest of the room is a mess the sink and counters are clean. (see email for sprout directions) Thanks for your comments.

  8. I use to enjoy cleaning till I had kids. They are all SO messy. Between my twin little boys, teen age daughter and husband I clean day and night and it drives me crazy! My Grandma use to love to iron and I loved watching her:-) Happy Valentines Day!

  9. I don't like to iron, but will do it if I must! I actually enjoy cleaning house - I really like a nice and tidy place to live. I feel like I can't accomplish much if I don't have a clean house. I have a list of house cleaning chores for each day, that way I am not overwhelmed! By the way - I love your blog!

  10. I hate to do housework too! I like to iron too and a good iron makes it easier!

  11. HAha that is so funny because ironing is my least favorite chore. My favorite(if there is such a thing) would be dishes i guess

  12. I love to iron, too! You've won me over with that little admission, girl.Busy(sweet)Bee...I'm following you:)

  13. OMG, I have plenty of ironing you can do. That is the worst chore I think I can think of. I love to vacuum. I do it almost daily. My husband calls me the vacuum queen. I do like my cloth napkins ironed. I do it when I have, too. Yesterday I got some new sheets and washed them. Now I will iron the top sheet and cases, but not the bottom sheet. No one will see it, but me and hubby.

  14. I remember as a lil girl sitting at the kitchen table doing my home work or drawing and watching mum iron and it was so enjoyable to her.
    She seemed so content!
    I guess that is why I love ironing everything in sight!
    I also am a fanatic about washing windows! I can't stand dirty windows!

    My least favorite chore is the bathrooms. UGH......
