Let my experience be a lesson to all of you-DO NOT walk away from your stove to type on Fab 40!

Tonight, I was participating in Victor’s changes blog. I had a weird schedule today, and decided I wanted something to eat. My stand-by is always buttered noodles, so I threw a pan of water on the stove and walked back into the office to type.  

After a few minutes, I walked back towards the kitchen to check the water, and I noticed the smell of smoke. I tried to remember what I had left near the stove, then walked in and saw the wrong burner turned on, the one that happened to have my potholders sitting on it.

Luckily, they had not burned up too much, I was able to throw them in the sink to douse the flames.  

So, I am alive, my house is still intact, and I did not have to go running into the 15 degree night with 4 pissed-off cats and a yapping dog. And hubby is still asleep. I’m hoping I can Oust enough of the smell out so he won’t notice. Hey, maybe I’ll burn a candle...nah, let’s stick with the electric warmer!
