Spanish term or phrase: honey do's
This is a Xmas Newsletter from a family living in Florida. At a certain point they say:

John still works at XX (...) and does the honey do's around the house.

What's the meaning of honey do's?
Thank you.

quehaceres caseros (pedidos de la esposa al esposo)


Explanation:
El término "honey do" significa que la esposa le dice al esposo "Honey, do ..." y luego agrega el quehacer que desea que realice. Se dice "honey do" porque suena como el nombre de la fruta, el melon "honeydew" en Inglés.
Abajo le doy un sitio de web que habla de los quehaceres realizados por una compañía. Quehaceres que el esposo no quiere hacer. Le debe aclarar un poco su uso, aunque el sitio usa la frase "honey doo". Ya debes saber que en los EE.UU., muchos carecen del conocimiento de ortografía correcta.
