A lid dropped out of an overhead cabinet and broke to smithereens!

Friday, July 03, 2020

I wanted to put he cat food on a sandwich plate to feed her. I got the plate and a lid to a Pyrex or Corning Ware pan fell and hit the granite counter top. I don't know how it happened because the sandwich plates are not near the lids. It shattered. There were some pieces that were easy to pick up, but the majority of the broken glass pieces were about the size of the head of a pin.

I had to get out the vacuum and vacuum thoroughly after I picked up what I could. The tiny pieces were hard to see and I must have had the silverware drawer opened to get a fork to take the food out of the can because there were pieces of glass in the drawer. The force shot glass across the kitchen floor. I moved everything but the refrigerator to make sure I got as much as I could cleaned up. I cut myself while doing the sweeping and putting shards onto a dust pan, I was afraid that the animals would get those tiny pieces in their paws.

Crellie, our cat, went behind a sofa and wouldn't come out to eat. I didn't want bloody paw prints on the carpet and I am supposed to wear shoes when I am awake because I am a diabetic. I counted cleaning up the smithereens of glass as my exercise. I sure had a mess to clean up!

    I have done that before. Hard to find all the little slivers and I usually find 1-2 later.

    Oh, when corning ware shatters it is indeed a real mess. Sorry that happened. Good you got it cleaned up, because I'd worry about the critters hurting themselves, too. HOPE you didn't get cut badly. ((HUGS))

    What a dilemma! I hope Crellie did finally eat her dinner. Now try to relax.

    Oh No! Yes, you're right, cleaning that mess counted as exercise! Hope the rest of your day goes smoother!

    Oh, that can be a lot of work. I have plenty of experience with that... vacuuming is good, but s sponge is even better. Pieces show up days later here... tiled floors so I sponge snd toss the thing out asap.
