First of all, I started watering my plants. Reaching up high atop my Hoosier cabinet in the kitchen where I have plants and Christmas decor, I grabbed a plant and didn't realize that a smaller plant that I'm starting in a vase of water was caught on the larger one. It came spilling over the top onto some things I'd rather not have wet.
Next, after the cleanup and getting the rest of the plants watered, I decided to turn on the self-cleaning feature on my oven. I checked the oven and decided (wrongly) that it didn't need any pre-cleaning, as it didn't look too bad to me. Well, about 10 minutes after it started heating up, I happened to still be in the kitchen and looked at the oven and saw flames all over the oven. I've done this before and this was the first time I ever saw flames! So, off goes the oven and it's still awaiting cleaning. I was too aggravated by then to tackle the job.
And besides all the mishaps, my computer didn't have internet connection all day. After calling my internet provider, it was determined that I had a bad modem, so a trip to WalMart in the next town was called for. Then it was on to the setting up of this modem where the real fun began. After talking to 3 people, who I could barely understand, I'll just say that I finally have internet connection. But my good temper hasn't quite been restored yet!
I hope to get my oven cleaned tomorrow, and the Christmas cards done. It's still bitterly cold here and we have a little snow on the ground which makes it look a lot like Christmas! Cheer up, Scrooge....talking to myself here. Tomorrow is another day! Hope it's a good one wherever you are.
Until next time...
