Rainy days...

I adore the rain. I wish it would rain all day, every day. Or at least, I wish that sunny days and rainy days would swap so that sunny days are few and far between. I would happily tolerate the wick effect of water creeping up the legs of my pants, the sodden shoes and frizzy hair.

Today is Sunday, which makes the rain even more lovely. There is even thunder, which is weird for 10am in Brisbane. I am snuggled up in bed - alone, because EA is away for the weekend - watching the water trickle down my bedroom window. I will probably nap in a little while, before continuing to overhaul my office. I'd like to make the most of this cool day.

I was supposed to meet a friend for lunch today, however it has been postponed because of the rain. I was also supposed to go in to work and study. I have always had a very strict rule of no study on rainy days. I can't concentrate. I can't sit at a desk and learn when it is perfect napping/movie watching weather. However, I'm a big girl now and I think it's time to suck it up and recognise my responsibilities.

It's just so hard!

So we'll see how I go.

I love it too! We have thunder and rain at the moment as well, it's just lovely. I only don't like rain if I have to go out in it...especially with the kids!! :)

I can imagine with kids it would be a little uncomfortable!

I can't bring myself to get out of bed. I'll have to drag myself out soon though. It's terribly sad.

I love rainy days too, just as well living in Melbourne!
I don't love what it does to my hair though!
You're right rainy days are perfect for snuggling on the couch watching a movie, or lazing in bed reading...
I also love sipping a nice glass of red & cooking hearty soups or baking bread on rainy days!
Enjoy your rainy day :)
