Mercury milestones create a “should I stay or should I go?” conundrum. Go outside or hibernate?
To tip the scales in favor of outside on subzero days I found a little hobby a few years ago. You might recall other posts on the topic of frozen bubbles and my pursuit to find the most effective recipe for creating the magical spheres. (To go back in time click here or try this click.)
Last week, I tested a new formula.
Occasionally they shattered on impact. But most landed intact with soft precision, as if honored to be blessed with a long life expectancy. Sometimes the wind caught the orbs and they rolled on waves of snow. The point is… this bubble solution worked. Over and over again. The temperature was likely an important factor (it was -4 degrees), but this bubble formula produced the best results.
The magic didn’t arrive in a DIY recipe. No creative solution to report.
I found the formula in the most unlikely place.
