Project Gingerbread House hit a bit of a bump yesterday while I was heating sugar for the windows. I do this every year (one year I set the microwave on fire because I put the sugar in a METAL cup), and I’ve gotten good at the process, but as best as I can tell, I probably caused a crack in the glass when I rinsed it out right after it was super hot (extreme change in temperature), so the next time I put it in the microwave, it shattered because the glass was compromised.
Sometimes it helps to know science! (I don’t know science).
BUT, this is what the windows look like when finished! What’s a little fire or shattered glass when we’re talking Christmas joy?
Oh, and I take back everything I said about making swimming progress. I couldn’t even get my head underwater in the pool yesterday without hyperventilating. So, it’s looking more and more like doggie paddle for me! If you ever thought I was afraid of looking like an idiot in front of a bunch of people (then you probably haven’t met me?), this should prove you wrong!
