Forever Young/#SoCS

When #SoCS host Linda Hill posted the prompt for today’s event, I felt excited. For once it was not a question of if I could find a suitable subject but rather which one to choose.

While I will freely admit to never wanting to fully accept my role as an ‘adult’ in the sense of leaving all childish things behind, there are a few moments that number among my very favorite to keep that inner child alive and well in me.

On our last ‘freeze in’, I longed to be outdoors even for a bit, so I looked up a recipe for homemade bubbles and, well, the rest is bubble history. Someone had told me about blowing them and watching them freeze. Of course her temps registered at nearly zero. I managed to snag one that didn’t burst and it began freezing on the ground.

It is like a bubble ballet watching them float and dance on the breezes.

The sun created wonderful reflections for me!

This was the closest I got to a frozen bubble.

 

And when you look up, you see other pretty, often unnoticed happenings…

In case you want to feel carefree and childlike again, here is the recipe I used. These are pretty tough bubbles too. Enjoy!

Homemade Bubbles

Measure 6 cups of water into one container, then pour 1 cup of dish soap into the water and slowly stir it until the soap is mixed in. Try not to let foam or bubbles form while you stir. Measure 1 tablespoon of glycerin or 1/4 cup of corn syrup and add it to the container. Stir the solution until it is mixed together.

Happy Weekend everyone!

Let it snow,

nowhere to go,

office closed,

I suppose

It could be

good for me.

Let it snow

and fire glow

but heavens no..

Please don’t let

the power go!
