Is there anything more luxurious than lighting a few candles, pouring in some lavender salts and sinking down into a warm bath?
I think not.
But, thanks to this drought, I've been trying to do my part and save water. Well, it turns out that easing up on the hamburgers and chocolate saves a hell of a lot more water than skimping on a bath time. So my homework this week, and yours, is to light those candles up and get in that bath. My aching shoulders can't wait. Bonus points if you can get someone to bring you a glass of champagne while you're soaking. ;-)
If you're feeling even a bit squeamish about using that water, just remember that residential water use only accounts for 10% of our state's water usage. Seriously.
Until next week, take care of yourself. It isn't selfish!
