October Photo Challenge - Day 22 - A Favourite Place



*siiiigh*

Yes, I'm one of those people...one of those bath people!


I hear that a lot - "Oh, I'm not a bath person!"  but phooey I say - if you are not a bath person, it's because you are doing it all wrong!  You see, a bath is not about getting clean...so no, I'm not soaking in my own filth (I hear that a lot too!)  Showers are for getting clean.  But for me, the bath is an escape.  A place of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.....and to warm up on those crazy cold days...!


I love my bathtub!! Seriously - it's crazy deep and super long!! And we got it for a steal!!!  I'm not a whirlpool jet person and I'm not a spa person.  I'm just a lady who loves the tub!


Yes, taking a bath, dear friends, (and here you either are with me or against me) is a full on event!  It's solitude time, bubbles time, grab a drink, a snack (preferable of the chocolate variety), a real good book and sink on in, time.   Sink on in, beneath the warmth, letting the waters flow around you, envelope you and ...and letting the bubbles...hide you! *wink!* hahah!! 


Grab your good read, sip you drink, close out the world and disappear into tub land....for a good long while!  And don't resurface until you are a wrinkled prune!


And well...if you see all of that as just plain silly, then that's fine with me - keep your showers but I'll be soaking away the coming long winter nights....and I won't be saving you any chocolate!

  1. alright!! now.. you're stealing my thunder for the second favorite place of all time --- in the house. I would use to "do this" way more when I was single... I need to revisit this idea...

    LOVE this photo!

  2. I love this photo too, maybe even one of my favorites from you so far! And I almost felt like I was taking a soak as I read your very inviting description :D I love baths but have actually taken very few in this house for some reason...we have a great tub but our bathroom is so tiny I feel closed in, maybe that's part of it.

    1. Really? One of your favs so far eh?? Nice to know! I wasn't feeling so good (to be honest) when I took it and was just trying to get it done and up for the day! But I really liked how it turned out too! You DO have a lovely deep tub - who cares what the bathroom is like, it's ALL about the tub...oh and a window...as long as there is a window I'm good - and you've got that too! I insist, you must take a soak!!! ;) :D

  3. You are forgetting the plug pulling with your toes so you can drain a bit of water and turn on the taps with your feet and add more hot. Two hours is about my bath minimum as long as I don't finish my book first. A good bath pillow is a must for me. And music helps prolong the whole event.

    I love your photo!

    1. I had wanted to be able to turn on and off the taps with my feet but the length of tub in proportion to the length of me...makes that impossible...but I'll take the long (and deep!) tub over being able to reach the taps, any day! And YES, I have a pillow too, they are a must indeed!! (helps when I fall asleep! HA!)

  4. Oh Kaitlin...that tub looks so inviting! My tubs are too short and not very deep. I WISH I had a tub like yours!

    1. It IS inviting Julia!! I try to 'rent' it out to people all the time! I tell them to come on over and pretend it's a hotel or something and just enjoy my tub!! We got it for such an unbelievable price, I just feel that it should be shared....maybe that's weird...?! hahah!! Still....if you ever want a long hot soak.....! ;)
