Coffee Thoughts...

I am on my second cup of coffee this morning...my rituals of the morning somewhat completed except for ONE....one very important one...I will turn down the ringer on the phone (I usually turn it off, but cannot do that this morning)...and I will sink down into a tub of hot water!! I will let out a sigh of relief as I slide down the back of the tub and allow myself to melt into the comfort of the heat that surrounds me. I am always so aware of the old commericals that said...
"CALGON TAKE ME AWAY" (showing my age here...but it was for a bath water softener where a woman is stressed out and slips into her bath tub...(claw foot bath tub) with a huge smile on her face!!) This bath routine (I am one who does it both in the morning and at night) allows everything to go away...Sometimes I add candles...oils...a glass of wine (only at night) a cup of coffee (morning routine) music. This is MY TIME....this is where I strip off the world...this is where I can dream, but not think...this is where I can be emotional and cry to the fullest...or just enjoy the treat of solitude. This is a place where I can totally be ME....A bath for me is a totally spiritual thing...a warm connection...As I get ready to begin the rest of my day....I will pour a cup of fresh coffee (cup 3...yes....I drink a pot in the morning all by myself!!) I will draw my bath...and sink down in the tub and dream....It's a beautiful thing!!!
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

PS: When was the last time you pampered yourself with a bath?

I'm not a bath person, but you sure do make it so inviting... I love morning rituals.. coffee, email, journaling, just being with myself...
and consider yourself Tagged.
You may want to play and you may not, but I think others should be linked here to this soulful blog.

Hey! I remember those commercials. ;-)

Gosh it's been a long time since I took such a relaxing bath with the candles going. I like to put on some Enya and Loreena McKennitt to go with the whole ambiance. Hm, since it so nice and cold at night I see one in my near future.
