Bath time!

When I was a little girl, one day I fell miraculously, strangely in love with Brussels sprouts. MMM, they were gloriously yummy noms, but I didn't come across them very often. Once we were on a road trip out to California and we went into one of those Shoney's/Kip's type places, and I ordered a plate whose side dish was Brussels sprouts. My mom said "you're not getting that plate just because of the Brussels sprouts, are you?" I solemnly swore I wasn't. The food came out a bit later, and I ate the Brussels sprouts off the plate and left the rest.





Well, I've been secretly afeared that my mom would think this is the reason I bought this house. I swear it isn't. There's also a lovely tin tile ceiling above this. Quite nice, I think.



Now for a proper bath. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Someone sent me a box of goodies from Lush. SQUEEE!

But I didn't choose the whole house just for this one feature. There's a tree house, too. And a porch. And some pretty built-in shelves at the back of the dining... and two massive pecan trees... and other stuff as well...




*le sigh*

I TOTALLY would have bought the house for the tub - the treehouse, pecan trees and what-not...they're just gravy. I have 2 old cast iron enamel tubs, but I also live in a 'manufactured home' so they must live outside. However, they get used every summer when bathing outdoors is desirable...sort of like in those Cialis commercials!! Ha!

I'm confused? Sooo, you're filling the tub with Brussels Sprouts? Seriously, iron tubs are cool, but, they do cool quickly, and you have to clean under them...

Now that's a proper tub. I never was much on the bath experience (as opposed to showers). Now that I don't have a tub I miss the two or three times a year I used to relax in a bath that was drawn as hot as I could stand it. Especially when I overdo the physical side of life...

Happy St.Georges day Phlegmy.

Miss Praline is brave...I can't get V2 over the threshold of the bathroom...that's just too near to the tub, and we know what happens in there, yikes!

That thing looks big enough to do laps in :-)
