As I’m writing this post, my ears are filled with the steady patter of rain on the road, intertwined with sliding car tires and soft horns. It is a cool and rainy autumn day, the leaves just beginning to abandon their green gowns for a more bold color. Today is wet, dreary, cold and grey. One of my favorite types of days. I’ve always loved the rain, the thunder and lightning, the wind and the cold. I feel like a good rainy day is always overshadowed by the bright blue skies of summer, with cotton candy clouds and beams of light. Don’t get me wrong, this is my favorite type of day, but sometimes you need to appreciate the beauty that is the grey rainy days. The way the light reflects off of the glistening roads, making everything appear brighter. The fresh smell when you first take a step outside, almost as if it’s your first time outdoors, like everything is clean and new.
Even if you don’t want to be outdoors in that weather, it gives you the perfect excuse not to go outside. Nothing is better than curling up in bed or on the couch on a cool rainy day with a book or Netflix. Throw in some hot chocolate or tea and a fuzzy blanket and I can camp out for hours in the solitude of my room. I am getting chills just thinking about it. Or if you want to be social, it’s the perfect time to go see a movie, or kill a day at the mall! So many of these indoor activities that I feel guilty partaking in when it’s sunny outside are available!
So I am completely content on this rainy day, with the patter of rain and sliding car tires and their soft horns. Excited to relax tonight and enjoy. 🙂
