through the bathroom window

this is the view through the window of our "second" bathroom. Today it was all sunshiney and lovely, and as I was filling the tub to bath the dog, I just happened to notice how tall the rosemary had grown outside the window. Can you also spot the geranium peeking through there as well? It's a lemony-scented one, and after I bathed the dog, she went and rolled around in it and came out smelling delicious! It was better than the black sand that she usually rolls in after having a bath. We built this bathroom off the back of our laundry a few years ago, when we totally gutted our inside bathroom and redid it. We took this rather mammoth task on, doing all the work ourselves, in the middle of winter, and when willow was about a year old. Yeah, we're pretty sensible when it comes to stuff like that. There's nothing like having a bath outdoors in the middle of winter. The "bathroom" does have walls, made of corrugated iron, they just don't go all the way to floor or the roof. Still, I like to think on these times as character building, and I sure did endure a lot worse conditions when I was growing up. Needless to say, though, I don't really use the outside bathroom anymore, except to bath the dog, and the kids aren't really keen on it either, but it's great for those after the beach showers, and sometimes if we have people stay, they think it's kind of neat to have a bath out there. Eventually, I plan to make it a rule that all the boys have to go out there, and then my new, lovely inside bathroom can be kind of like my ensuite! Shh, I haven't told them that yet!

Welcome to Blogger. I'm still trying to find my way around it - I'm rather overwhelmed by it all and for now I'm happy to stick with the basics.
Hope all is going well.
