After the recent catastrophic flooding here in Bangladesh, I felt that I needed to have more respect for water, especially clean water. I thought about what I could do to conserve water and decided to start bucket bathing instead of taking showers. I learned the art of bucket bathing in the Peace Corps and actually came to enjoy it. Plus, I can save thousands of gallons of water a year!
My boy Odin decided that he was going to take bucket showers, too. Of course, for him it's enough water for a full bath since he still fits in the bucket.
What about Lily and Eric? Well, Lily uses very little water in her bath at this stage anyway and Eric's showers probably use less water than my bucket bath. Plus he has that 'minimal bathing' policy in effect on weekends... :)
