So, it’s your day off and you wake up to find your plans of soaking up some much needed Vitamin D have been cancelled by the raindrops making themselves at home on your parade.
Worry not! Your day can still be just as relaxing and charming as you imagined it would be. If you don’t already have a rainy day ritual of your own, here are some ideas to beat the boredom.
1. Bake all the cookies!!!
Or all the brownies… Cupcakes… Maybe try your hand at a sweet loaf. Heck, you might as well lavishly decorate a cake or two while you’re at it – you have all day to go Cake Boss up in this kitchen!
2. Two words: Movie Marathon
Grab your siblings, SO, or spend the day solo. Regardless of your extent of human interaction, throw on those sweats and kickback for a day spent enraptured in Hollywood magic.
Bonus points if you attempt to marathon all 8 Harry Potter films plus Fantastics Beasts. I have faith in you, my friend.
3. Upgrade your inner child
Still looking to be a social butterfly despite the bad weather? Call up your go-to-girls and build a living room fort! Pad the insides of your fairy-light decked fortress with snacks and movies and have yourselves a girls’ day: paint nails, wear face masks, and catch up on the latest gossip of the group.
4. Read a book
In my opinion, there is nothing better than spending the day in the company of my favorite book of the moment. So cozy up on the porch with your latest literary obsession and a big cup of tea and enjoy the fresh summer-rain scent on the air.
5. Best part of a rainy day? Rainy nights.
After a long, exhausting day of doing absolutely nothing, enjoy drifting off to blissful sleep to the murmurs of rolling thunder and warm rain pattering against your window.
