[Focus on Life Week 29] Routine showers with Mr. Water

It's Week 29 at Ms. Sally Russick's Focus on Life and this prompt is:  ROUTINE.

"Week 29: Routine

Do you have a daily routine?
A routine that you look forward to each day.
The morning cup of coffee, the runners high, what ever it may be
and even though it may be a small part of your day its a comfort,
a time to unwind just a little.
This week focus on the beauty and comfort of your
every day routine."
Meet Mr. Water.
Isn't he cute?

Mr. Water migrated to the USA from the "land down under," Australia.  He was one of my souvenirs during our visit there.  There was a drought that time and people were reminded to conserve water by watering their yard on designated days for a specified time and to take quick showers, etc - oh, there was also a small blue hourglass with rubber attachments so you can stick it on your bathroom tile  but I lost it.

It's been 2 years since but he still keeps me smiling every time I take my routine daily shower.
Speaking of taking a bath - it doesn't take me long to finish:  from shampoo, conditioner, lather with body gel and rinsing.  In fact, my husband takes a longer time and oh my sister... no one can beat her (I love you, sis!)  I trained myself to move fast when I was a young student because I've always wanted to close my eyes a little longer in the morning - until I am fully awakened by my dad or mom's voice saying "Let's Go!"  and off to the shower I go!  Oh, fun times!

Please don't stay too long in the shower.  
Be kind to Mr. Water and conserve water.

Let's head over to The Studio Sublime to see what others' routines are.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!  
It's the Bead Hoarders Blog Hop tomorrow so do come back!  See you soon!

A great message, but I've recently had a power shower installed and I could stay under that for hours - it's heavenly! I shall think about your little blue man next time and I shall be quicker, promise!!!

I like your little Mr. Water and what he represents.

So cute! I'm the same way I can take a 5-10 minute shower and my husband and son are much longer!

So funny the things we keep. I love this little guy and what a great reminder to save water. I take very little time in the shower and in fact my husband who has no legs or arm pits to shave, and very little hair on his head, takes way more time in the shower than I.

Love him!!!! We ALWAYS have water restrictions here in FL, but been raining so much this year, not a problem.

He is cute. Drought is never a good thing...

I great thought Michelle. I agree that conserving water is important.I collect rainwater for use on my plants.

Love Mr Water. When I was a kid we had seven years of drought, I remember all the conservation signs!

My Dad being a Navy man taught all of us to take quick showers. Mine is WAY faster than my husband's. All of us need to think of saving water wherever we can.
