Sometimes rainy days feel just right. The beautifully gray skies, looming clouds, and the calming sound of the rain converge together for a pretty, just-right-for-a-monday picture. Now this isn’t always the case, sometimes it rains (yes, the 10 days it rains in LA), and I’m like ugh, I guess I”ll just stay in bed forever. But not today. Today I have my favorite rainy day Pandora station going (Arcade Fire), a hot cup of mint green tea, and a smile on my face as I gear up for some productivity.
What are some of your rainy day must-haves? You know, those things you pretty much only bust out on gloomy days. Things like:
– Hot cocoa with marshmallows
– Cuddling in a warm blanket on the couch while watching reruns of Felicity
– Cooking soup from scratch with a grilled cheese sandwich
– Taking an unplanned nap (ok, that only works if you’re not at work and home without kids, but one can dream)
