multitasking no no

I'm notorious for trying to do too many things at one time too quickly .. .

  • talking on the phone. . . .
  • beating egg whites . . . .
  • and running water into the sink . . . .

It was all good. . .

the problem started when I tried to turn off the tap while continuing the first two.

The whisk hit the side of the measuring cup . . . .

and I was treated to flying wires.

I didn't think to take a picture until the egg white were successfully beaten.

Todays homemaking tip. . . do one thing at a time.

All for now. . .

  1. Oops. I'm guilty, too, of trying to accomplish too many things at once. Multitasking sounds good, but I'm afraid the quality of my efforts suffers at times.

  2. Oh, I've been caught in that situation too often, or as I rush through...the my arms hits the liquids and everything spills.
    But remember you are in your Jubilee, a beginning of new occurrences.

  3. Any news on pre-whisked eggs being produced by Canadian chickens? Seems there should be a grant out on that, since apparently the pre-peeled hard boiled egg laying chicken breed has been perfected.

    And would someone please get going on developing a cheese omlette producing chicken? Maybe if you put a nice dairy cow in with the birds it would get the ball (or eggs)rolling.

  4. I have finally learned. My multitasking days are over. Thank goodness I can move at my own snail's pace. When I was in Belize I had to learn to move at their pace. They call it Belize time. Well it is so hot there and because we were there as missionaries and stayed in homes, no a/c. I kind of liked the slow pace, but not the heat. Now I am slow all the time. Whether by decision or old age, I am not sure.

  5. You added a smile to my day...again. I am notorious for that type of incident. I could write a book, but you are better at putting it all into words and pictures.

  6. I hope the rest of your day is perfect!!
    The silly things we do sometimes...I won't confess to all of mine. smile
    I have just finished a book for Thomas Nelson's... and the author makes a comment about multi-tasking being nothing more than divided attention .. and the rest is self-explanatory!!

  7. Oh the mishaps I have had trying to do too much all at once. I'm still scratching my head and trying to visualize how that happened...

  8. Hey, I haven't looked at your blog for a long time! This might be a good time though to let you know that I have a few extra beaters (okay, like a lot of extra ones!!) for Kitchen Aid hand mixers. I don't think these ones came with the whisks, but if its just the beaters, let me know.

    May all your future incidents continue to be small in the scheme of life! :)

  9. I've noticed that when I've tried to multi-task - nothing gets my full attention and the focus it really deserves.

    It could have been worse for you with those flying whisk wires! I'm glad it wasn't! On the other hand - the whisk could have broken when you weren't multi-tasking!

    Love the under 40 club post!!
