Be Careful When Tired

Yesterday I was exhausted. I woke up at 1 am and couldn't go back to sleep. So by 9 am I had all my housework done, my farm chores done and a few other little things. I started making some yogurt in the crockpot. All was going well, until it came time to put my starter in and my milk was a little cooler than it needed to be. So I turned the crockpot back on did a couple things in the kitchen, checked the temp on the milk, added the starter and covered my crockpot with towels for insulation. I forgot one very important thing.......turn off the crockpot. Last night about 8:00, I started to smell something like toast burning. I went in the kitchen and check the stove and oven...nope nothing on. About half and hour later, the smell was getting stronger and I was thinking that it was about time to pour up the yogurt. That was when it hit me....did I ever turn off the crockpot. Well, into the kitchen I run and sure enough I didn't. Needless to say every plastic piece on the crockpot was melted, the milk had burned completely up (that was probably the burnt toast smell), my towels covering the crockpot were covered in a brown stain. Don't know if they singed or if it was just the smoke from the burning milk. Needless to say my crockpot is ruined and I will never do something while so tired again that I can't think straight. So be careful ladies when you are really tired. I got a real good reminder last night of how easily it could have been to burn down our house. Oh, well....I needed a new crockpot anyway. Blessings, Kat
