I got home from work yesterday and it was 8 degrees with a wind chill of -13 degrees. I decided it was time to try a bubble-blowing experiment that I have been seeing on the net.
You heat up your bubble solution to boiling and then go outside and blow bubbles. Blowing bubbles in below zero temps!! How cool is that? The bubbles are supposed to freeze as they drift through the air. You catch them before they hit the ground and shatter and they are gorgeous works of frozen art.
So I heated my soapy bubble solution in the microwave and went outside in my bathrobe and winter boots (the moment I get home from work I put my warm cozy bathrobe on). On my first bubble-blowing attempt, I had Crocs on, but the snow entered all the holes and I had wet feet--not a good thing in below zero temps--so the boots went on for this second attempt.
I decided to try another experiment. I boiled two cups of water in a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup. I took it outside and tossed it in the air:
Have any of you tried either of these? I had a blast...most fun I have had outside since my garden frosted over!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
