The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Moving the bathtub

Outdoor bathtubI finally got around to ripping the bathtub out of our miniscule bathroom this weekend and lugged it outside under the sun.  By winter, I hope to have constructed a simple bathing chamber out there with glass walls, a passive solar water heater, and a simple graywater system.  For now, I'm just thrilled to be able to soak in a bathtub rather than in the washtub.  (Yes, I used to wash up outdoors in the washtub rather than indoors in the bathtub --- I just don't like bathing indoors if there's another choice.)

Sunday in a nutshell --- a plethora of library books to choose between, a purring cat to pet, double chocolate chip cookies, and a bathtub in the great outdoors.  Is there really anything better in this world?

But why would you be jealous? It looks like Joy baked you some delicious lemon bars. :-)
