Favourite Things Thursday - Taking a shower!



One of the simplest, basic things in the world is also one of my favourite things: taking a shower. I know, I know, everybody takes it, what's the point? The point is that I loooove water. In another life maybe I was a duck, or a fish. I simply love to take a shower in the morning to wake up my body before going to work.


But the best is when I get home after a looooong working day. Then, after playing a little with Lucas, I love taking a long warm shower - very important: I hate cold water, when the subject is taking showers. I know lots of people who loves it cold, which is a mystery to me -but I feel so uncomfortable and upset that if I had a tail like a cat's, it would be whipping back and forth after it. I need the water to be at least warm. In winter time, like now, I take hot showers. It's not the best for the skin, I know that, but the sensation is delicious!
I try not to be too long, after all, water is not to be wasted, but I do enjoy the time I spend under the hot water while letting my body and my spirit to be cleaned from all the dust, stress and bad energy we accumulate along the day. Fortunately we don't have a bathtub, or I'd live inside of it!


Something I learned to do when I really want to relax, is to hang on the shower, above my head, a thin cloth sachet with relaxing herbs, like lavanda, cammomile, so they do wonders to me releasing the herbs' fragrance and properties while I let the water fall over my body.
Well, this is my Favorite Thing for today! Cant wait to see what's yours!

Oh Nydia - I love showers too! Some time ago we had to take our bath out and put in a shower, as Aileni couldn't manage the bath, and I've used that shower every day since!

I want to go shower right now after reading this.
I'm a water babe too.
And as much as I like swimming most days, the warm shower afterwards is a highlight.
I adore hot-tubs & natural hot springs - well, will have to do my own Fav. Thing post on them.
Love to you all
Blue.

Oh, I am so with you on the not liking cold water! I am a hot water girl, all the way! I won't even go in a pool until mid July when it's warmed up to 80 F or so!

I like the idea of hanging a sachet on the shower head for scent. I usually just use herbs in the tub but I like the shower idea too so you have the scent! :)

Ooooooooooooh! Showers! I love them, especially when we are on holiday and have had a day riding the bike. We must get ours sorted as the water pressure is low in the village,hope Luca liked the rainbow story.

What a cool idea! I have heard of making a bath "tea" before but haven't thought of using that in the shower. Neat idea! My skin is so sensitive, I bet it wouldn't react to camomile.

Cold showers are how I survive the heat. I don't like them but they do bring my core temperature down which I have needed so much!
