Manic Monday with Mo ~ relish

Morgen from It's a Blog Eat Blog World...The Mo Show on BlogTalkRadio and several other blog ventures hosts Manic Monday...surf over and see what his other minions "relish"

Relishing seems to require multisensory satisfaction and enjoyment.

I relish the perfect bath.

Near scalding hot water to the tub rim…lathered with bubble bath lightly scented of tangerine, mixed with sesame oil. My hair piled on top of my head so I can lean back on a soft pillow…nonscented candles at the far corners…a favorite beverage within easy reach. Relax into the steam. Telephones silent in another room. A new novel by a favorite author to envelope my mind. Toby singing softly in the background....sigh...

I didn't understand the word "relish" and my dictionary didn't help me either. Relish for me was the labelled glass on Moo's blog, lol !

Amazing Gracie said...

Sigh...I relish moments like that, too.
Have a fabulous Monday.

I feel the same way when I can get a good long shower in without the kids screaming in the bathroom.

Schmoop said...

Unfortunately, I can't say I like to soak in the tub, but a nice cold beer, and the phone not ringing AT ALL, would make my day.

Oh the perfect bath sounds perfect and I would relish one myself but by the time my claw-footed tub is full, the water is no longer hot! Bummer!
