From 6 to 2

No, that’s not my work schedule, that is my water bottle count. No, that is not the number of hot water bottles I have in my bed at night.

That number is the number of 2 litre bottles of fresh water that I have currently filled.

You see, in warmer weather, I like to have 6 of those two litre bottles filled in the house. So, I will take the empty ones to work and fill them.

Of course in warmer weather I am taking my jug showers in my bathroom. In cold weather I am taking a bachelor’s bath . . . elsewhere.

In the cold weather, as it will be for the next day (and a bit) I am down to just two of those bottles because that is all that I need overnight. On the weekend I may go back up to 4 bottles or even 6.

During the workweek, however, all I need is a bottle or maybe a bit more to get me through to the next workday.

Let me be clear, I take both bottles to work with me, full or not. This is because the bottles will freeze during the day while I’m at work. (Particularly when it I south of -10C). . . . Fun.

Again, it is these small ways that I change and modify my routine which helps me not only survive but thrive no matter what the weather or season.

As always: Keep your head up,  your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
