An afternoon spent indulging...


I believe that everyone needs to take care of himself or herself. Now, I am not talking about being selfish here. I am talking about spending some time, quality time and maybe some money on just you. To me, doing something you really enjoy is important. Taking time out of my busy day to care for myself helps me to hold depression at bay. Above all else I do not want to sink into that pit of despair, and depressive feelings. So, I do little things for myself. I like to call it “indulgence” or “pampering”.

There are several things I do that I consider an indulgence. One of my favorite indulgences is to take a bubble bath. I know that might sound a little silly, a grown up woman sitting in a tub full of bubbles but, I enjoy it and I make it a memorable experience. Here lately I have not had much free time and have really missed my indulgence times. I can tell when I have missed too many of those pampering sessions because all of a sudden I notice how irritable I am an how little things that usually don’t bother me start to bother me, it is called stress, an unfortunate fact of life. My children have gotten into the act and support my times of indulging. They will even joke around and teasingly say, “Mom, I think it is bubble bath time”. They have been saying that quite a bit here lately.

Yesterday afternoon I decided they were correct and it was time for a bubble bath. I locked all the doors and put the answering machine on. I went into the bathroom and tuned on the CD player. The CD I keep in there is one I burned myself on my computer. On it is several songs from a variety of performers. All the songs are slow and romantic but not Bach or Beethoven, as I really like classic rock. Soon the sounds of the Bee Gees, “More than a Woman” filled the room.

Next, I lit the candles. I have several in different places around the room. Some are candles I have made myself but most are ones I purchased at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. As I inhaled their wonderful aroma, I could already feel myself beginning to relax. I turned off the lights and turned on the water to fill the tub. I always have the water set very warm so that steam rises up and fills the bathroom.

The next thing I did was to choose something to add to the water. There is a store here in town called The Bath Junkie. I love that store because you can go there, choose a color and fragrance and the owners will mix up your bubbles, bath crystals or lotion for you. Sarah had a Bachelorette party at The Bath Junkie and all of us that came made our own bath crystals and lotion as party favors. We all had a great time at the party. Naturally when I opened the cupboard to choose something, I pushed aside the many jars, and bottles to reach for the bath crystals I had made at the party. I had chosen Strawberry, Champagne and Very Sexy perfume as scents. The color I chose was a maroon. I stopped to inhale those wonderful scents as I opened the jar and using the little cup I measured out the bath crystals. I sprinkled it in to the water and watched as they dissolved and turned the water a slight reddish color.

Lastly, I let my robe fall off my shoulders and to the bathroom floor. I slid slowly into the warm water and sighed as I lay back on the bath pillow. I closed my eyes and listening to the music I began to slowly relax. To me a bubble bath is a very sensuous experience. There is something about the way the warm water gently tickles my skin. My mind soon begins wandering to thoughts of a lover joining me. I never fail to get aroused while taking a bubble bath and yesterday afternoon I could feel it beginning in my body. Every time I shifted my legs, I felt the water like a hand caressing my inner thighs. I soon spread my legs to feel the caressing lap of the water on my pussy. As I gently moved my arms I felt the water like a lick to the nipples of my breasts. The tips soon hardened and stood up. I reached for the bath gel,which was a matching scent to the bath crystals. My hands moved slowly up and down my arms and I sighed with pleasure as I massaged the gel into my arms. My hands drifted back up and then over my shoulder and down my chest. I rubbed the gel around my breasts and nipples stopping every so often to tug at the tips. My nipples are very sensitive and tugging them hard is very arousing to me. I really enjoy having my breasts touched and my nipples played with so I lingered at that task for quite a while. When my breath began to shorten as I was becoming very horny and needy, I reached for more gel and pouring some unto my belly I massaged in little circles. I was aching to be touched on my pussy but I bypassed that for the moment and moved my hands down my thighs. I lifted my leg and smoothed up and down. I massaged my feet and toes and sighed again with pleasure. When both legs had been done, my hands drifted back up and inside. I spread my legs wider and began to run my fingertips up and down the lips of my pussy. My right hand slipped farther in and my fingers began to rub in little circles around my clit. I jerked several times with the intensity of the feelings. I closed my eyes and moaned as my hand began to move faster. I slipped my other hand down and slowly slid in a finger. Soon that finger was moving in and out as my hips began to move up and down. The water began to splash up the sides of the tub and onto the floor but I didn’t care. I slipped in a second finger and let out a loud cry as I jerked, my thighs quivered as my mind went foggy and I climaxed. I gave a contended sigh as I sank back down into the water. Mmmmmm. Reliving my afternoon for you has aroused me so I am looking forward to another time of indulging in the near future.

Bubble baths are not the only thing I do to indulge myself. I also like to go to the spa and have my fingernails and toe nails done. I have also enjoyed facials and massages at the spa. I am saving up to get a body wrap done in the fall.

What do you do for yourself? What indulgences do you do for yourself? Perhaps you enjoy hunting and fishing? Maybe you watch NASCAR racing or sports on TV? Perhaps you have buddies that you go out to clubs with? What ever is it that you do I hope you are taking care of yourself.

The house i reside in for the moment has no privacy, there are no doors but merely curtains even in the bath, so my indulgence is staying behind when the family goes on some outings and turning on the music and like you a bubble bath, except that i love my rubber ducky, and the wonderful shower massager head, hehehe.. It is GOOD TO GET CLEAN!!! lol.. and another indulgence is renting a motel room to use the pool and then staying all night to myself...sometimes alone..*winks* sometimes with a visit...lol c

    Hmmmm....those showerheads are wonderful! I use mine in conjunction with a waterproof vibrator.

    Other indulgences? An extra cup of coffee lazing around in the morning, quiet time to read a book, a fresh pedicure. "girly things" make me feel good.
Girly things make me feel good too, Naughty. And..a water proof vibrator!!!.....I really need to visit the "toy" store.

I take bubble baths also. I have never done the candle lighting and turning the lights off though. Maybe I should sometime. And I agree also a multisetting pulsating hand held shower head is great. And I am like NB along with a waterproof vib.

I don't class a bubble bath as induldging though. Honestly I don't class anything I do as an indulgance. I don't burn many candles though people buy them for me alot. I don't buy special bubble baths or bath oils or things because quiet honestly I can't afford them. Around here those are a luxury.

I used to love to curl up in a chair and read a book but I haven't even bought a new book in the last 2 or 3 years.

Geesh now after reading back through my own post here I see I need to find something to do to induldge myself once in a while. No wonder I am always stressed out. Ok anyone got some suggestions.

I have to make the time for these indulgences, fuzzy. That is the hardest part..the time element. I also save up for it and have been fortunate enough to recieve gift certificates as birthday and christmas presents.

I would suggest a full body massage fuzzy. Perhaps you even know somebiody that can do your massage at home.

Well Buttery the full body massage sounds good considering I have never had a massage before. But no I don't know anyone who could give me one at home. The idea is appealing though so I will keep it in mind.

As far as gift certificates and things. You are very lucky to get those from family & friends. I normally get clothes that I hate or more things for my house. Would love to be able to go to Bed, Bath, & Beyond at the mall and pick out something I liked. Just places like that are over an hour away from me and so a trip to town for just me isn't a useful trip. Come to think of it, I ain't even bought my favorite perfume in ages....I think I have been out of it for going on 4 years now.

Hum ya got me to thinking about things now.

awww fuzzy, thats too bad. everyone deserves some pampering. When I was in college and trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up, I took two massage classes. I learned a lot about muscles and how to relax them. Your comment on not knowing anyone to give you a massage reminded me of that. I need to renew my certificate so I can give massages to friends again.

And thinking about things for yourself is good. Taking care of yourself is important, fuzzy. Well, at least it is important to me.

Thank you so much for your comments on my blog. I will slip on over to yours and see how the house setting up is going.

Buttery ,
We spoke briefly about a year ago. I loved reading about yur bathtime. Let me tell you, once you are out, my hands, some warm sweet scented oil and my hands over your body, mmmmmm. I used to be a Sports Injury Massage Therapist, so i know the right spots to hit. And then of course there is the full length body to body massage, covered in the oil. Oh and by the way, those massaging shower heads are good, i agree, to have it on my balls in the shower is an instant turn on everytime. Hope you get back in touch, and maybe share a bath sometime *lick*

Wow! Runs for the bath. I love bubbles and way to go for taking such good care of yourself, BD. If I fall down on investing in myself, things just do not go well.

Warmly,

I joined AdultFriendFinder in November of 2005, about the time my father had a heart attack and died and my mother was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. I did not stay active on this site and even turned off my profile because of the stresses I just mentioned. I became a full time caregiver for my mother and it was not till March of 2006 that I became a member of the basement chat room and became active again at AdultFriendFinder. I started my blog about a month ago. During that time I have changed my profile as I now know what I am looking for.

Would you please read it and then email me?

Thank you for your comments.
