Awful Alarm

See why I don’t cook???   All l did was turn on the oven,

oven set to 400 degrees

Oven on, temp. set

 

 

and put chicken thighs inside.

Sorta baked thighs

Then the ear-splitting fire alarm goes off!  

fire alarm

ANNOYING ALARM!!

 

 I took it down, and put it inside my robe.

alarm in my robe

Looks like I’m alarmed and dangerous!

 

Then the one way down the hall joins in the cacophony.    Dang!    (I know I’m a big girl!!!, but still there ain’t room for both! )

 

So, I wrapped them both up in my thick blankie.   This oughta fix ’em!!

Wrapped up like pigs in a blanket

If the smoke gets so thick they go off again, I better hi-tail it outta here myself!!

 

Even the alarms get alarmed when I try to cook.   It just ain’t worth the headache!!  That’s why I bake my potatoes in the microwave.   Looks like I need to learn how to bake chicken in there as well!!    Alternately, just buy canned chicken, and forget the whole “But, I want it hot!” thing.   I’m thinking that just might be the best solution.

It’s annoying, depressing, not a good thing at all.   Maybe part of my planning for meals should be donning my Haz mat suit???   AND calling the Firemen to be on stand-by???

Even with all the alarms, noise, and smoke, it turned out to be a yummy supper after all!

Baked , okay, microwaved potato, and baked (yes, really!) chicken

Pouty protest

I don’t wanna be doing this.  I’m only doing it cuz someone tried so hard to shame me about it.

(Hello, person formerly known as “Sweet friend”, I’m talking about you.)

(See??  I told you if I had notice I’d have put on a purple shirt, and my Aunt Jemima bandanna!  This time, I had notice!)  And lookey there, I’m cleaning up too!   Will wonders never cease?

Not anything drastic, just folding some laundry, the gargantuan mountain of Living room loveseat laundry.

20150324_13220320150324_132213The loveseat couldn’t hold it all, so some spilled into the wingback chair…  and the floor… Oopsie

I can do that from a seated position, so no real excuse for NOT doing it, just my arms hurt, I’m tired, I’m hungry, I feel like I’m gonna faint… any of those work for ya?  No?  Drats, I was hoping to get out of this for a longer time.    Oh yeah! I forgot, I have a headache!  No?  Still not working?   My stomach hurts???   Check my head, I think I have a fever!

Oh, look!  Willie stopped by to help!  You’re welcome, Jan C.!

Fine!  I’ll fold the stinkin’ laundry.

Yes, Shirley, it's really empty!

Yes, Shirley, it’s really empty!

There- happy now?

Next time, I’ll ask Mama, she’ll let me get by with it!
