When most people think of living in the country, they get all nostalgic. They picture sitting on a porch swing on a hot summer day sipping ice cold lemonade.  They see children running through fields of flowers chasing the family dog. They see cookouts and swimming in the brook. While those are all great parts of country life, that’s not what life is like most of the time. Sure, there are a few hours here and there but for the most part living in the country involves more physical labor than most people see.

Country Life, a HappiMess and Sore Muscles

Country life for me is a way of life I’ve come to love.  Spring means planting the garden and cleaning up the yard after the winter storm damage.  Summer means weeding, harvesting and repairing fences and outbuildings. Fall means clearing out the garden, cleaning the chicken coop and getting it ready for winter and stacking wood. Winter means snow and lots of shoveling.

Country Life, a HappiMess and Sore Muscles

Right now, I’m definitely feeling the work and mess associated with fall.  The chicken coop needs to be cleaned out. The garden needs to be cleared for winter.  The leaves need to be raked. The wood needs to be stacked.  At the end of the day, even with help from the kids, I am tired, sore and messy.  It’s a good messy, though. It’s a HappiMess. These things give me a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of a job well done and I like that.

Delta Temp20 Shower Head

At the end of a long day, I really look forward to a long, hot shower to wash away the mess and soothe my sore muscles. Lately, I’ve been soothing away aches and pains with a new Temp20 shower head from Delta Faucet. It has a digital temperature display and six different spray settings with 6 jets!  The sensor changes color from blue to magenta to red depending on the temperature. There are no batteries required because the Temp20 is H20 Powered. I know when my muscles are sore and I’m a HappiMess, I want a nice hot shower to wash it all away.  I love the convenience of being able to jump in the shower when the temperature is right for me. No guessing involved. My personal favorite of the six sprays is the Full Spray but my husband likes the Full Spray with Massage. With 6 different choices, there will definitely be one you fall in love with at the end of the day.

Why do people treat mess like it’s a bad thing? It’s actually the evidence of a life well lived. When you’re out there making, creating, doing and playing, embrace your #HappiMess and let Delta kitchen and bath innovations help clean up so you can do it all again tomorrow.

  1. I loved seeing a bigger glimpse into your life! I'd love to see more of that. As a city dweller, it's nice to see how the other half lives!

  2. I feel the same way - hard work, a job well done - that really does make life better and more fulfilling. I wish I lived in the country and could do more manual labor, I think living in a city has made me a bit lazy.

  3. I would choose the Hand Shower, in Venetian® Bronze. What a nice shower head. It would look so pretty in my bathroom. My husband is a farmer, and comes home filthy. A hand shower would allow him to easily clean up. :)

  4. I would love to win a hand shower in stainless.  Right now, I have an old shower head that the water holes has filled with lime deposits.  Once a year I have to soak it in vinegar to clean.  I have never had a hand shower before.

  7. I have always wanted a hand shower head.. any finish would do but the chrome or the stainless are both nice.  I can totally relate to the sore muscles.. I have a nearly 50lb 3 year old son with special needs. My muscles are constantly sore from chasing and trying to carry him. A shower head like this would feel a bit heavenly after my kids are in bed and Mommy gets her me-time.
