Sunsets, Clawfoot tubs, and Cowboys

IMG_1455
This is an old clawfoot tub that my husband’s parents brought back from the homestead and refurbished  for their guest bathroom.

Note:I love sinking into a deep clawfoot tub filled with bubbles. They are much better then those modern Jacuzzi things.

This is a picture of our old backyard. Well, actually, this windmill sits on top of the canyon that ran along the back of our property.

Note: I adore sunsets and sunrises in the Panhandle of Texas. The sky stretches as far as you can see and the light, well, it’s like a window into heaven.

This is WB. He’s a Texas man, tough and smart as a whip. And he makes killer chocolate desserts.

Note: I love this man with all my heart. He is my always and forever.

Now, if you could drop that clawfoot tub down there beside that windmill for me. That’s it, thank you. Oh,while you’re at it if you’ll hand my WB a tall glass of Hefeweizen with a squeeze of lemon in one hand and a bottle of bubbles, bath bubbles that is,  for the other. One more thing if you will, we’ll need a couple of horses for the return trip please. Wonderful, thank you.

Now, I’ll just sink down into those bubbles, while my hubby tends to the horses and scares away any coyotes. And I’ll lift my glass and wish you all a Happy New Year. One filled with all the the things dreams are made of.

What are your dreams for 2012? And if they involve cowboys or bubble baths do tell!

My dream was always to have a claw foot tub--dreams CAN come true!

Can I get my husband to dress like a cowboy and put him in a bubble bath? :D What a fun post!

Hey, the speaking gig I'm starting up is called WindMill (for Wendy Miller). Pretty cool you have one out your window!

Thanks for the RT!

Love claw foot baths and jacuzzis. And I love windmills, any kind. My dream for the New Year is to rope in some of those old dreams that have strayed and get them safely in the corral.

What a beautiful sky you look out on! My 2012 dreams involve exploring new writing frontiers as I move forward with publishing my book ...

Great post. Nothing like a cowboy to make your dreams come true.

A bubblebath in a big soaker tub, under the wide sunset sky with your cowboy husband?! Sounds wonderful. Happy New Year to you. May all your dreams come true!

Tough, smart and a great cook. Doesn't that describe the ideal Texas man? My husband's originally from NYC but he's all those things, too--supporting my idea that he and Texas were separated at birth. Great post, Kara, really enjoyed it!

Happy 2012 to you and your family, Kara!

My 2012 dreams don't involve cowboys or bubble baths, but they do include tilting at windmills...
