Showering outdoors; it’s one of life’s little pleasures ….

shower outside #3Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site, then you know I live with my boyfriend on a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. Our house is 100 yards from a beautiful, white sand beach with dunes and sea oats. We have a fenced-in patio with an outdoor shower. The shower has both hot and cold water, and there’s nothing nicer, after a visit to the beach, than taking a warm shower under the open sky. Our patio’s completely private, so we can get naked out there for the full “shower experience.” If you’ve never tried it, you should one day. You won’t be sorry you did.

shower outsideI had a productive afternoon. I took a wonderful, fourteen-mile bike ride. The weather was perfect, not warm, not cold, but just right. And the wind wasn’t blowing. The time flew by (It takes about an hour and ten minutes.) and before I knew it I was home. I worked on correspondence with literary agents, and then I wrote a guest blog post to promote my newly-published novel. By the time I was done, my boyfriend was home from school and errand-running.

Now it’s around six PM and I’ve just opened a cold beer. Earlier, I bought fresh Gulf grouper at the seafood market down the street, and we’ll have ourselves a nice dinner tonight. Wherever you are, I hope you’re having a nice Tuesday evening.
