Rainy day summer Sundays

Rainy day Sundays are some of the best days! They are days you should grasp with both hands and hold on with two fists. Enjoy the renewed energy and wrap yourself in the relaxation that comes from the rain.


Because how many days are there where you have an excuse not to mow the yard? While the grass and earth soak up mother nature's water, you can clean your kitchen or rearrange your furniture. Maybe rearrange your office furniture to boost creativity.

Embrace the slight chill that comes with the rain. Snuggle into a grubby pair of shorts and a sweat shirt and have a hot café mocha or a rare hot cocoa in the middle of summer. Take a long, relaxing read of a book that's been on your to-be-read pile. If a book doesn't suit your fancy, how about a rented movie. A good chick flick would be a great way to pass a lazy day.

Let's not forget comfort food. There's nothing more than a rainy day Sunday to make one seek out comfort food. Throw a pot roast into the crockpot along with some onion, mushrooms, and some beef broth. Let it all slow roast for 5 to 8 hours then mash some potatoes and enjoy a home cooked meal.

If you're a writer like me, take advantage of the rain and write your next scene. Write it slow and savor every moment, every nuance of your characters and their latest predicament, explore their feelings.

Take the time to call your grandmother who you haven't spoken with in a while. Ask how she's doing, what she is doing. Maybe reminisce over an old memory of when you were younger and went camping with your grandparents or how she always made your favorite apple pie when you visited.

Be like one of your flowers in your garden and soak up the day. Take in every moment, every nuance, and make the day special. Be crazy and step outside and get drench in the rain. Let it wash over you like a summer breeze after a dip in a lake; crisp and refreshing.

Enjoy rainy day summer Sundays!
