What Do You Do On Rainy Days?

20210328_194000.jpg

It rained all day today and so glad it was a Sunday, my day to rest. To lighten my mood, hate dreary overcast rainy days, I worked on my Color By Number. Takes my mind off the weather 🙂 Luv looking outside my window and seeing Mr. Sun. Lol, but not today 😞

I usually don't have a ton of energy on rainy days.  I find them great days to curl up with a kitty and a good book!  👍

@AngelaS579497 , Great question! Living in Scottsdale,AZ, we don't get a lot of rain.  But I love a big bowl of popcorn and a good movie.  Sometimes drift off to sleep listening to the rain for a afternoon nap treat. Christine

Given that I live in the Pacific Northwest which is basically a rain forest, rainy days here are called Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.  So what I do is put on my baseball cap, grab my 'brella, take out the trash, clean out the mail box, go pick up a meal, all the normal things. (Only being slightly sarcastic, but it's true that too much sunshine depresses me. I'm weird that way. LOL!)

Yikes @DeahC77388 I literally die when we have back-to-back rain 😭 While I am DREADING the coming SUMMER as I cannot afford the air, I need Mr. Sun to show up like TODAY 🙂 I really appreciate you stopping by to share with us 🙂 🙂

Well @AngelaS579497 the trade off here is that we usually don't have hot summers, which is good because almost no one has air conditioning at home. But we're on a hot and sunny streak right now -- 4 days without rain and temps in the 70s! I do remember one May 30 years ago where it was 90 and it nearly brought society to a halt.

@DeahC77388 I NEED to relocate to your area!!! Between the famous HOT FLASHES AND HUMID SUMMER I am ready 😤

Humid summers were why I left STL forever. I am not a fan of sweat. LOL

Hi @ChristineH635132 thank you for stopping by 🙂 As usual no pressure to respond to the following questions.

  1. Do you have a lot of droughts? I live near Roanoke, Virginia and get way too much rain. Sometimes daily rain for weeks which causes the Roanoke River to overflow and basements to flood.
  2.  What type of popcorn do you like? I use to enjoy popcorn, but of late not.
  3. What type of movies do you enjoy? Me, clean mystery. Luv the old ones like Poirot, Murder She Wrote and so on.

@AngelaS579497 ,  This past year, it only rained a few days.  If you like sun, Scottsdale will give you lots of it.  We have had temps hit 115 and above, so there is a trade-off for little rain.  Popcorn on the stove top with coconut oil is our favorite snack. While crunching those kernels, we like murder mysteries, documentaries ( for me, anything on wellness and nutrition ) , the original Flip or Flop ( inspirational while we waited to get into our new home ).  One of our favorite movies was "Queen's Gambit."  Angela Landsbury as Jessica Fletcher, a classic fun light viewing pleasure.  Christine

@RosemaryF433825 sounds cozy! What is the name of your kitty if you do not mind sharing? Same with what book you are reading.

@AngelaS579497   I actually have three cats...two are outdoor/indoor.  The newest member that is strictly inside is Myles Standish (aka Myles) who I got the Monday before Thanksgiving last year.  He's just 7 months old.  

The book I am reading is called:  The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune.

It's actually a fantasy.  I'm quite eclectic when it comes to what I enjoy reading, and I still like to actually have the book in my hand instead of going electronically.

I bet Myles is CUTE @RosemaryF433825 !!! I like to use my bookmarks. Never got into the Kindle, etc. This is what I bought at the Dollar Tree. Lol, now to make time to finish reading it.20210328_204331.jpg
