Freezing Hot Water

A few days ago I read a post written by my cousin that really struck a chord (you seriously need to read her post, it's beautiful and amazing, and makes you want to call every last loved one you know and tell them how much they mean to you). After an unexpected week in Kansas, I decided we were going to make the most out of every minute here, cold weather and all.

So, yesterday, with little persuasion I was able to convince my Father-in-law to go out into the arctic temps, at 6:00AM, and see if we could freeze hot water.

It might have been cold, but it sure was awesome.
It is really easy to get caught up in the hub bub of life. We have routines we follow, schedules we keep, and a pace we like to maintain. Sometimes it's difficult to take a break and enjoy the little things.

If you have a minute (and it's cold enough), slip outside and see if you can freeze some hot water.

  1. Part of me wishes it was cold enough to do that here...then the part of me who dislikes feeling like I live in a freezer takes over and I am glad I can just read your post!! :)

  2. I can't believe living in the Midwest I have never done this. How fun! After the holidays I to realized I need to slow down with everything. After reading your cousins post it really made me re-evaluate my priorities.

  8. Oh yes. I remember doing this when I lived up North. And that, my friends, is the whole reason why I moved to Florida. If it's cold enough to freeze hot water instantly, it's too cold for me! Of course, I've still been running around all day today complaining that I'm cold.
