Today’s post is in honor of National Bubble Bath Day, which is celebrated on January 8th. You still have time to get your bubble plans in order.
Bubble Bath Day is a great opportunity to cleanse your skin, open your pores and relax your muscles while surrounded by bubbles. Read a book or listen to music as let any tension and stress float away.
My advice is to tune out everything around you relax. I attempted this the other day, things didn’t go as planned, but I adjusted and made the situation work. Here’s what happened.
I decided a bubble bath would be soothing. I turned on the hot water in the bathtub, distributed a cup of Calgon Chamomile and Honey Epson salt, added bubbles and waited for the water to fill the tub.
After a couple of minutes, I checked the temperature of the water, it was lukewarm at best. I dare to say, it was slightly cold. I immediately stopped the flow of water. There was no way I was dipping a toe in that less than inviting water.
It was long before I discovered the source of my cold bath water. One of my teen boys was in the shower and had let the water run… a long time, before he even got in. All of the hot water was gone.
There would not be very many bubbles for me, but I refused to let that Calgon go to waste. I put the tea kettle on, a couple of times, made trips up and down the stairs and finally had a warm bubble bath. There was just enough water for me to exfoliate my feet.
Perhaps for National Bubble Bath Day I will indulge in a real bubble bath.
Have a little fun
