Read in the Bathtub Day!


The goddess today is Iemanja, a water elemental, so this is just what I need! A steamy bathroom, a good book (I’m re-reading an old favorite, Busman’s Honeymoon by Dorothy L. Sayers), Constant Comment tea, the constant companionship of Tenzing and Molly …. NOW I’m relaxed

Book and Bath Spell

February 9

Color of the day: Brown
Incense of the day: Bay laurel

Known as Read in the Bathtub Day, do a bathtub self-care spell today. Gather a good book, a warm cup of tea, and even a little sweet snack next to the tub. Get some oils or bubble bath, and make this a time of luxuriating. You deserve it. Choose a time when you wont be interrupted. Turn the phone off, leave a nice note on the outside of the door. Run a steamy bath, with bubbles or oil, and dip in. Take the time to indulge yourself, remembering that downtime is an important part of productivity as it renews and replenishes. Luxuriate in reading. Whether you indulge in mystery fiction, romance, or research, affirm your right to spend quiet time alone with a good book. While the cold winter winds howl outside, let the splendor of water and words restore you.
