...okay, so maybe I was a little overdramatic. But if you lived where I live, you'd understand. Being in a Midwestern state in winter takes a strong, rugged sort to survive. The cold is biting, it takes forever to clear your car of the smothering white powder, and people magically forget how to drive. But there's a certain coziness to it I guess. On my rare days off, I like to snuggle in my blankets in my pjs with a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate, a book or video game, and just forget that winter exists. Freshly fallen snow is also the perfect weather for a nice, hot (and I mean HOT) bath!
I will admit that I'm one of those people that's always freezing cold. When at work, I'm constantly apologizing to customers for my cold hands, to which they laugh and say it's no problem. I've been in hot, 80 something degree weather and have been frigid. I might just be one of those lizard people everyone in those conspiracy theory videos rants about. So when I take a bath in the winter, I essentially boil myself alive, to where I can see steam rising off of my flushed skin (and it's cool...makes me feel like a dragon!). So that one fateful day of our first snowfall, I was feeling especially comfy cozy, and longed for a nice hot bath with a spicy winter scent.
