Let It Rain!

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~John Ruskin

A lot of people enjoy the rain, but there are few others that don't. It makes them feel sad and melancholic. Well it's time to change that! Rain is amazing, not only because it's good for our environment, but because one can feel inspired to do things that we forget to do on other days.
-It's a perfect excuse not to worry about make-up, hair, good clothes, etc. You can put on some pjs and just relax!
- Take advantage of the darkness, close your curtains, and sit/lay, close your eyes, breath slowly. Try releasing any tensions you had that day. I love taking naps too!
- Lay down and listen to the rain outside; the thunder, the alarms that sometimes go off, the way the winds affects the sound of the rain.
- Sit in an area where you can see the rain clearly and just grab a cup of tea, coffee, milk, etc.
- Cuddle! Cuddle with your love, your pet, your pillow, your blanket. Feel cozy and listen to the rain fall on the roof :) (try to enjoy nature without distractions on the computer/tv, at least for a bit).
- Read a good romance novel or science fiction book!
- Do things that you put aside during sunny days. Maybe a little bit or organizing, cleaning, making a dessert, completing a puzzle, writing a letter, etc.
- If you are a bit lonely at home, go somewhere relaxing. Get a pedicure, a manicure, watch a movie with a friend, go to a cafe!
- Do something crazy... like dancing in the rain (with someone would be better). Sounds akward, but it can be fun and become a very special memory.
Just enjoy it! I am from Lima, Peru and we never have rain there! If we do, it's pitiful... tiny droplets like a subtle mist while the temperature feels cold and yucky. So when it rains here, I love it, even when I'm at my office. Today the front door (where my desk is) opened by itself due to the wind, and it scared me! It felt like a scene from What Lies Beneath. The only thing missing was a ghost. Luckily I did not scream.

... And to end this post... just like the song says: have you ever seen the rain coming down on a sunny day? :)

  1. this is one of my favorite photos! i'm from seattle so the rain isn't odd, but this summer has been hot, so the rain is a pleasure.

    you commented about my plant names on my blog. i'm so glad your plant was revived! I've recently watched the 1982 movie "Annie" and Daddy Warbucks' assistant is Grace Farrell. She's beautiful and would make the loveliest plant. Good luck! Let me know what you decide. What kind of plant is it, by the way?

  2. Hello Leslie!
    I think Grace is a lovely name! I will use it! I am not sure what kind of plant that is but I will take a picture on Monday and send it to you somehow. Oh and I love Musicals!

  3. You can sure email it to me at lesajen@gmail.com. Can't wait to see it.


Yes! Put your cursor on that lovely white box and start typing :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
