Bubble the blues away

Wish You Were Here

There is nothing like a hot bath to lift the spirits.

This morning I was feeling a little blue because of the grey, rainy day preventing my usual work-out walk in the neighborhood. I made myself a bowl of cereal, topped with a banana, strawberries, and sprinkled with a few blueberries and raspberries, all mooshed up with a cup of organic soy milk. Yum! However, that did not seem to curb the bluesy sensation, so I ran a hot, bubble bath in our huge spa-like bathroom. Powering up the jacuzzi spouts I plunged my body into the tub and covered myself up to my chin with warm, swirly, bubbly water. Lying there for fifteen minutes or so, I started to feel the blues melt away. Indeed, I became energized with all kinds of thoughts about what I wanted to do today. Before I knew it I was up and out, drying off, and back at my desk with work projects and plans for the weekend bursting out of my brain.
