Winter and Candy

It is no big surprise to anyone who has ever met me, that I hate winter. But since I am stuck in Minnesota, I have to make the best of it. So this year, I am starting a photography journal. Hopefully it will remind me that there are beautiful things about this time of year.

The first thing I did this morning was to take pictures of the frost. Since we have no snow, I am stuck with the stuff I scrape off my car.

After snapping these shots, my son and I frantically scraped it all off and got into the warm car. Sub-zero temps aren’t really conducive to taking photos.

We also started the process of making rock candy. I might be more excited than the kids are.

I bought an awesome ring from http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEclecticSlide and she included rock candy with my purchase and that kicked off this new adventure.

I love this picture. We are making red, green, purple, and teal. I swear I check them every 30 minutes when I am home. I can’t help it. I don’t LOVE science for them most part, but stuff like this is so cool. Hopefully in a day or two, we will start to see the crystals forming!
