Happy Friday, Dear Readers, and welcome to flood country. Where I live, they’re forecasting a full weekend of rain…rain we definitely don’t need. The city has issued a basement-flooding advisory, and our rivers are still swelling well past capacity. I feel very sorry for the poor farmers to the south.
With rain in mind, I thought it would be fun to discuss the best way to spend a rainy day. How do you entertain yourself when there’s a downpour outside? Are you one of those people who does what you want, rain or shine, or are you more a “weather permitting” kind of person? How did you occupy yourself on rainy days when you were a kid? How do you entertain your own children?
How does the rain make you feel? Does it bring you down, or do you love the way the air smells when it rains? Any and all comments welcome. Stay dry!
As for me, the very best way to spend a rainy day is safe at home, snug in bed, with a great book, wonderful snacks, and two very cuddly kitties. I hate having to go anywhere when it’s raining, and cloudy skies make me blue, but if I can stay home and relax, it’s not so bad. A hot bath is always a nice option, too…especially if you’ve been caught in the rain.
But thunder and lightening storms make me want to write. I love working on one of my scary novels while there’s a terrific storm going on outside. It sets the mood and completely inspires me. I find it hard to resist.
Your turn, Dear Readers. Have a great weekend!
