Doing My Best...

... BUT ...

Well! Getting more and more private here, showing pictures from my bathroom, and of my bare toes! Winter drives one to do desperate things...!

Whether it is besides or because of all the snow, the last few days have been really bad from aches-and-pains point of view, too. When I got back from today's walk I was feeling icy cold all over, and every little joint in the body was aching. How to survive the next few weeks or months without even the prospect of my weekly baths?! (See yesterday's post Waterhole.)

Today's answer is in the pictures above; in addition to which I also wore a microwave heated wheat cushion over my shoulders. The chair is one that I use on the balcony in the summer; and for the record, there was hot tea in the mug, and the book: Summertime by J.M. Coetzee (in Swedish)!

It's the first time in my life that I ever had tea and read a book "in the shower"!

this is just toooo funny! i love it. the perfect get a way from the snow. I hope you had your heat cranked up to make it toasty warm and that pan had really hot water in it. being shut in the house does bring out our creative sides. it does that to me also. I have taken pictures of really strange things when i get bored. thanks for the view of your Spa

Ha. The first thing I did was try and see what the book was!

Hope you are toasty warm and fast asleep now (midday here in NZ) and ache-free when you wake.

There's not much one can say about constant pain but the wheat cushion sounds good.

LOL! You had all the necessities in life right there in your bathroom!
