A Bath! Finally!

We've been having some cold days here and there, and on cold days my favorite thing to do is take a nice, hot, bubbly, bath. I've been taking showers for over a week now cause my back was paining me so, but this evening, I poured in the bath soak, filled the tub with hot water, gathered all my tools, and eased down into the tub.

Oh yeahhhh, it was mighty fine!


I was also able to do some much needed body grooming while I was enjoying my soak. I only have about 3 hairs that grow on each leg, but those had grown to a length suitable for braiding so I knew it was time to hack them off.

The work on my heels took a bit longer. I rubbed, and rubbed, with my little foot file thingy, and was beginning to think that I should have brought James's rechargeable drill into the tub with me. I bet that rotary tool bit would have made short work of those callouses.

Isn't a hot bubble bath the most wonderful luxury in the world?

I'm usually just a shower girl, although the last 2 nights I have taken a nice, long, hot bath ~ very nice indeed!

My dog won't let me have a bath, she thinks he tub in for her alone. She just doesn't get it. I'm not about to share.

I did it again...she thinks the tub is for her alone. What is wrong with my fingers?

It IS quite the luxury!!! But be really, really careful getting in and out of the tub with a bad back....I've had some not so nice experiences doing that!! Glad you are feeling better!!

I love baths! I have to be careful not to make mine too hot though or else I start sweating which sort of defeats the purpose. :p Glad your back is feeling better Brenda!

I love bubble baths but my tub is so little that I don't ever get to do this unless we go away and there is a nice tub. I wish we had a nice big tub because I love to soak especially in the winter. You cracked me up with the braiding comment. LOL
