The Love Of A Rainy Day

Rainy days are the perfect time to cuddle up with a book and some hot chocolate.
Or hot tea, or coffee....or ice cream, but that is another story all about how Thomas thinks I'm crazy to eat cold desserts when it is cold outside.

Rainy days are perfect for taking a walk with a polka dotted umbrella.
If you take a walk with a polka dotted umbrella when it isn't rainy, people will look at you funny. I possibly know this from personal experience.

Rainy days are perfect adventure days.
I don't care if it is a cliche, I will read any story that begins on a rainy day, or a dark and stormy night.

Rainy days are not perfect for waiting on a bus.
But even waiting on a bus can be fun, especially if you have someone to share your polka dotted umbrella with you.

From this picture we can learn:  
On rainy days it is better if the taller person holds the umbrella.

Rainy days make me feel feelings more deeply, and think thoughts more thoughtfully.
If those feelings and thoughts turn dark, like the sky, I look for a rainbow.

you are beautiful, you are amazing

Rainy days are my favorite days.

What do you do on a rainy day?


  1. i love rainy days too. thank you for putting words to the "why".

  2. What an inspiring post. I love it. And I'm going to try to look at the next rainy day the same way!

  3. I enjoy rainy days but not too many in a row. Gentle misty rains are the best to walk in. Roaring windy flashing thunderstorms are exciting to watch from inside.

  4. I love rainy days too! thank you inspiring me, thank you for being here for us!

  5. I love rainy days but only if I don't need to do anything. Rainy days make me feel cuddly. I just want to wrap up with a warm blanket, a cup of tea and, like you, a book that begins on a dark, stormy night. I could never live in Seattle because I would've read every book on shelf but I would not have seen the outside for an entire season!


    P. S. All of the above might be mitigated if I had a beautiful polka dot umbrella!

  6. I am still hoping that I can talk some of my *classic* bloggie friends into adding my Tigger blog to your readers. It’s much of what I used to write on Beth: A Work in Progress that people responded to well. I am making a disciplined effort to search out blessings and joy every day and post about them on Looking for Tigger. Plus I write a little about something that God has spoken to my heart that day. If I could subscribe for you I would totally do it because I really think you would love that little blog. But I can’t. So … I’m going to ask (again) please come visit me at and subscribe! I’m really trying to grow that little corner of the blog-o-sphere and I need some support from my friends! Thank you!
