Aha! Moment - Tart Warmers with Electric Timers
Posted 12 October 2010 - 05:13 PM
Recently, since the days are getting shorter, I started thinking that soon we will need to set up the lamp in our living room on a timer, as we do every year, so that our cat is not at home in the dark before we get home from work each night. Then it hit me…why not put the tart burner I have on a timer, so that it turns on at 5:30am and stays on until my DH and I leave for work in the morning!? That way, we can enjoy the house smelling nice as we get ready for the day. Well, a couple of days ago I plugged the tart burner into the timer (and inserted the timer into the wall socket) and it worked like a charm. Now, instead of only enjoying my tarts in the evening, I can enjoy them for a couple of hours before leaving for work in the morning. Don’t know why I never thought of this before – thought I’d share in case anyone else could benefit. ;-)

That's another great use for the timer...I know there's been a few times I've left mine on all night by accident.
I was also thinking I could use my timer to set the tart burner to turn on a half hour before I come home from work, so the moment I walk in the door, I can smell the delicious aromas. I just love this happy discovery!

I have a timer in the living room that has a different setting for each day of the week (am I a little tipped over, or what?) and one in the bedroom that is just on when I am getting ready for work. Love it!

That's a great idea - I'm still awaiting my tart burner - it's in my big Spotted Hog order which hopefully will be here soon, but when it gets here I think I'll go buy a timer so I can do the same thing - set it for a few hours in the morning, and also set it so it turns off after we fall asleep. Don't know why I didn't think of that either!
PS - I think it's really sweet that you make sure your kitty isn't home alone in the dark
