my friend, Mystic Mud, left a really sweet comment on our last post in regards to our hottub. here is the comment she left:
"lol....I'd love to see a proper picture of your hot tub:) I was just thinking the other night - what would I wish for if I had three wishes, but I couldn't wish for more wishes....1) a long hot bath with a gin and tonic. 2) a full body massage. 3) a whole night alone with my man. But then I couldn't decide if that was really four wishes? And which one should I dump....I was really tempted to dump the gin and tonic, but I know that the bath would be so much better with it, so then I thought maybe the night with my man because by the time I had a bath and a massage I'd just want to lay down and go into a coma anyway....I don't know, I never did decide....I want it all and I tried to convince myself that the gin and tonic just naturally went with the bath, so it really only counted as one wish...lol...but then I felt like a cheater. You wouldn't think I would have this much extra time on my hands to OVER think things, now would you!?"
she and her hubby have 10 beautiful children and live on a mountain in Tennessee and are trying to live a more self-sustaining life together. she tells their incredible story here. go and check her out if you haven't already done so - their story is quite wonderful!
anyway, she asked for pics of the hottub so i went and took some.
here is the baby sitting on the back deck.
cover off. i love the colour of the hottub...the brown, blue and gold. it makes me think of our river and our ocean.
it is a 4person hottub but i like stretching out in it and taking up 2/3 of the room squashing poor jambaloney in a corner.
now here is the nifty thing. it lights up. no really - it really does. i love having it on at night - it is pitch black here at the Manor at night - no light pollution at all. so we go out with a flashlight and turn the lights on the hottub. it's beautiful. have a peak.
it changes colour every few seconds.
i tried to get shots of every colour but only got the ones you see.
it goes from blue, to green, to yellow, to pink, to purple - you get the idea. i could sit out there all night in that thing.
we consider this thing an investment - in our health and well-being. we are both water babies to begin with and our tub in the bathroom is only about 4 inches deep. so we use the hottub to relax sore muscles at the end of the day but we also use it for our mental well-being - there is just something so wonderful about starting and ending each day in the tub. we also plan and dream in that thing. everything seems possible when sitting in the hottub.
Mystic Mud, i hope that you enjoyed the pics. if you ever come to visit, i will make you as many gin and tonics as you want!
