Can bubbles freeze

Ohiophotogrl and I have been watching people blow bubbles when it’s really cold out side. Some of the photos are really neat! We thought we would give it a try.

First we mixed our solution.

We used:

1 cup of water

1/4 Cup Of Dawn dish soap

1/8 cup of Karo corn syrup (the clear kind)

Mixed it all up and then let it set on the counter for half an hour. We wanted it wall to be at the same temperature.

Then it was time to test our bubbles. There was very little wind. This is very important to know. Wind will burst our bubbles. It also has to be below 15 degrees. We waited till it was 12 degrees outside. We went on the back porch and turned on our porch light. There is a trash can by the back door so that’s where we aimed the bubbles.

Several bubbles landed and after 3-4 minutes this is what we got

Kinda looks like a doggie if you look in the bubble. We got frozen lines in there but no real cool patterns. The wind started to pick up which causes the bubbles to do this….

It was a fun experiment! Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Before bed

I have a routine I like to do before bed. I like to wash my face

Brush my teeth

Brush my scalp

Then I curl up with Ohiophotogrl and we say our prayers before we close our eyes and go to sleep. What do you do before bed?

What’s for breakfast

Sometimes we like to get up and make breakfast before we start the day. I wait for Ohiophotogrl to wake up and look for recipes on her phone.

This morning I found these eggs. However we are gonna use her new cookware and cook them with very little water. That’s right boiled eggs cooked with just a wet paper towel in the bottom of the pan. Here goes nothin…..

Wetted paper towel and put them in the Kitchen Craft cookware turned the eye in Med heat for 3 minutes.

Spun the lid till it felt like it was gliding. It was making a vaper seal and turned the heat down as low as it would go for 13 minutes. Took the lid off and cracked the shells…..the shells come off very easy! And the eggs….

Perfect! Mmmmmmmm breakfast is served! What are you having?

Let’s do it right

You may not know it but it’s flu season where Ohiophotogrl and I live. That means we have to take really good care of ourselves. That means lots of hand washing!

• Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.

• Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

• Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.

• Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.

• Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Let’s all be healthy!

Happy New Year 2018

I’m still alive and doing well my friends. I know 2017 was a bit quiet but Ohiophotogrl assures me that 2018 will bring more adventure than last year and I will get to tag along! I wrote this up….

She has agreed so be on the look out for more adventure and more quality time with me and Ohiophotogrl!

Wonder what we will do next?
