I had a nice, hot shower yesterday morning. So did my husband and my big boys. The little boys and the girl had a bubble bath Saturday night. And this morning, I am counting that hot water as one more of the blessings I usually don't even realize. I'm glad I have hot water and I can take a hot shower. We have so much!
First I want to talk about showers. Showers are way important here. Because it's so humid and it's starting to get pretty warm in the day, if you don't wash off all of the grime you can get pretty nasty pretty quick. They're especially nice right before bed, so then you're nice and cool when you go to sleep. However... there's been a little bit of a problem with our hot water recently, and when I say a problem, I mean there is none...
I just want to go on record and say that I do not like hot showers. There's not much refreshing about being covered in hot water when you are covered with hot sweat all day. It's like the same. I really like cool showers, like slightly lower than room temperature kind of a deal. But the glacial water imported from the icy peaks of Russia that comes spraying out of the showerhead isn't quite what I have in mind when I say "cool."
News from South Africa is that his blog is now updated so you can see that he's been transferred to Queenstown (north of Port Alfred)! Glad he's doing well.
