Time for this week's link up with Karen Beth for Tuesday @ Ten where we have a full week to write on the word prompt.
This week's word is:
Finding it hard to focus now - on much of anything, including writing.
Nothing in particular causing that "un-focused" feeling...
Just having a hard time catching up on things; and trying to keep up with what I want to focus on -
And it would seem the inability to focus has consumed me so much that...
while supposedly fixing grilled cheese sandwiches on the stove-top...
I turned the heat up high - then turned away to butter the rest of the bread -
and the next thing I knew, flames were climbing from around the pan up to the top of the stove!! I had the exhaust fan on and quickly turned the burner off - just in time! As the heat decreased, the flames also decreased...
Well, let's just say the smoke alarm works! It blared for almost five minutes before we could get it stopped; and with the balcony door opened, the burner cooling off and the exhaust fan, we managed to get it all under control.
And later I found our poor cat huddling under my computer table...poor thing was scared to death!
What caused the burner to flame up so fast?
A few days ago I was boiling water, milk and butter to make boxed mashed potatoes...
and let it boil over when I turned my back to work on something else on the counter -
that is what was causing the burning when I turned it up higher to toast the bread!
What I need is a griddle!
And to FOCUS on what I am doing instead of getting side-tracked!
FINALLY - finished this week's Tuesday @ Ten post!!
