How did I transfer energy this weekend?

I woke up, used mechanical energy to get out of bed, I went downstairs to eat. When I was eating, I  used mechanical energy, to swallow the food, then, my stomach used energy to break down the food and create more energy. Then I went to take a shower, I turned the knob which used mechanical energy, and since the knob had potential electrical energy, it now turned in to kinetic electrical energy, and turned the shower on. It was too cold so I turned the knob even more, which converted electrical energy, into thermal energy, which then heated the water up. After that I went back to sleep and waited until it was lunch.
