My outside shower. I'm not much of a fan of the warm weather and in all honesty I would be just as happy to skip the summer and have two seasons of Autumn but at least I'm able to use my outside shower for at least four months out of the year.
Heaven. It's really the only perfect word I can think of to describe it. Tonight was a perfect example too. It's real foggy out and the temperature is in the low sixties/upper fifties at best. If you go out and start the water to get it nice and hot it's almost as good as a hot tub. It's just so relaxing to look up at the sky while you are showering and see a huge tree limb over your head and have seagulls flying by. I don't think I've taken an inside shower in over two weeks and I swear my skin has never been so soft and rejuvenated. It's probably all in my head but I don't care. I don't plan on taking another inside shower until at least October if I can get away with it.
Big Boy has even become quite the fan of outside showers. He thinks it's so fun to take an outside bath, which is what he calls it. Unfortunately, we are on a pretty tight schedule during the week but he knows during the weekend that all of his baths are outside. I think it's great because it's getting him used to showering in general as opposed to taking baths all the time. I hate to admit it but there are nights I would rather help him shower inside as opposed to going through the whole bath routine. It tends to backfire on me. Since I'm OCD when it comes to showering everyday even if I don't leave the house, poor BB has fallen victim to my strange ways and he gets upset and all out of sorts if I suggest skipping bath time once in a while. This way, since he likes showering now, I can give him a quick rinse rather that bathing him and I won't miss the "sleepy window" if you will.
Anyway, this is my useless rant for the day. I think if everyone had an outside shower, the world would be a much friendlier and happier place. I still think I should run for President. Between my outside shower theory and my four day paid weekends, you can't go wrong!
