QotD: Save It For A Rainy Day

What’s the best way to spend a rainy day?
Submitted by Vee.

As with almost everything in life, it depends. I love curling up with a good book, but if it’s been raining all day, I’m going to finish that book and need something else to do.

Mindless housework can be good as finishing it leads to a sense of accomplishment and earning the right to curl up with with another book. (I was also one of those children who was told to eat the food they didn’t like first so you could save your favourite for the end.)

The right movie can also be extra nice on a rainy day, especially when you have someone nice to share it with, and a blanket to cuddle under.

If it’s raining on a cold day, doing laundry in the dryer can make your house feel homey, and a little warmer. The thump and whir of the clothes can be a very soothing counterpoint to the rain.

If there are many people around during this rainy day, board games can be oodles of fun.

If none of these things are appealing, there is always the good ol’ standby – taking a nap!
