Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
It has been some cold showers lately, and that’s literally too 🚿. An other ti y challenge that just “dropped up” in March 😊.
The last weekend in March when I was going to take a shower Saturday morning ( happy it was on a Saturday 😅) it was just cold, fresh water in the shower. And it was cold too, at least it felt like freezing cold because in my mind I was prepared for a nice, hot shower ❄. But I can promise it wasn’t very hot and warm that morning shower 😅❄.
My hot water is heated with gas from an external gas tank which I have to replace when it is empty of gas. But this tank is new, and contains gas for many warmed showers at the moment.
But pipes and wires from the external gas tank and up to the box that heats the water can eventually become clogged due to the bellows that settle on the inside. And then there must be a worker who can perform this job – cleaning pipes and wires.
As some of you know, – thing can take a bit time now and then here in Spain 😳. And even longer time when it’s Easter time 🤭. This “clogged pipes” for the heating tank took place, of course, the Palm weekend, just before Easter. Do you think it has been easy to get someone to fix this during the last 10 days or so, then? Nope 😅
I’m actually not sure how long time it will take before this will be fixed either. But if I should assume something, out from my experiences, I think I probably will continue have a cold shower in the morning for at least for maybe a week or two more 🚿.
The first days it closely felt a bit like “work” to take a shower, because I was not actually looking forward to it 😅. I needed to motivate myself to prepare me for a cold, fresh shower and start on the day. But I found some “solutions” so it’s actually not to bad either now 😊. But I’m happy it’s just me in the home at the moment.
I feel actually “cleaner” and “fresher” after this “cold kick start” at my day then before, but at the same time I need to admit, I’m looking forward to have “ordinary” warm water back in my shower one day ( hopefully not to long there in the future 😊).
It’s also good it’s not to cold weather anymore, like cold winter weather, because the weather affects the houses too here South in Spain. Cold outside even colder inside.
At the moment I’m heating up the bathroom, and then I boil water in a pot and two. And then I’m “dropping” into the cold shower, get some fresh water on my body. Turn the water off, soap in my body, and then “back to business” in the cold water for a bit longer shower so I can get all the soap off from my body again, and then I actually I empty a pot and two of hot water over my body so that I do not become an “ice lolly” ❄.
My hair I wash separately at the moment, not when I’m in my fast, cold, fresh, clean shower. And I only use cold water for washing hair. It’s actually not to bad as long as it’s just my head and hair 😊.
It sounds maybe like a “complicated process”,- but it’s not. I got a kind ot “routine” on my “shower process” now 😅.
I’m a bit surprised over how cold the water feels at my stomach and back, neck and breast, but not so cold at my arms and legs, and yes, “the intim parts” of my body. And it feels not so cold when I’m washing my hair either. I’m not sure why it is like that to be honest. Maybe because the skin is different? And maybe because I have more and different organs in my stomach and that area of my body? 🤔
And I’m actually a bit surprised over how “fresh”, in both body and mind, I feel after this “cold kick start” at my day.
I need to admit I’m looking forward to get my normal heat water shower back, hopefully soon, but I’m maybe going to have a tiny “cold kick start” with cold, fresh water then too, because it does something “fresh” for both my body and mind,- and I actually like this “start” on my day- but it will be even nicer to have this kind of start on my day when I can choose to use hot/ cold water from the shower 😊.
So that was an other tiny challenge I “meet on” in March,- cold showers every morning 😅. But like I mention,- it’s possible to fix, and it will be fixed too, I’m just not sure when yet 😊. And it’s possible to find a kind of “be clean and take a shower” solution in the meantime 🚿. A bit cold one, yes, and a probably a bit shorter shower too, then I normally use when I have warm, nice water 😊.
But as long as I have a fine solution that’s functional for me to get “clean, fresh and ready” for the day, I’m fine…..for a while 😊.
I think I save the environment for both a bit soap and water at the moment, so that’s a good thing too 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊
A good “kick start” at the morning can be a fresh, cold shower 🚿. I didn’t actually planned to start my mornings with a “kick start” like this,- but I have found a kind of “solution”, and it’s not to bad when I get use to it 😊🚿. I feel clean, fresh and really awake,- that’s for sure 😊.
