It's Raining, It's Pouring, It's Thursday 13

It's raining today. A lot. So here is a list of good things to do on a rainy day.

1. Curl up in your favorite chair with a good book.

2. Bake cookies with the kids.

3. Plan your garden. (note that was plan, not plant)

4. Catch a bucket full of rainwater to water your indoor plants or to rinse your hair.

5. Rent a series of movies (ie. Shrek 1,2, & 3 or The Godfather 1,2, & 3 or Rocky 1-however many there are) and have your own movie marathon.

6. Play board games.

7. Sit on the porch and listen to the rain.

8. Test your new umbrella or raincoat.

9. Go outside and splash in the puddles like you did as a kid.

10. Try that new recipe that "will take hours" for dinner.

11. Put the radio in the window and dance in the rain with your sweetie.

12. Stay in bed all day and sleep.

13. Stay in bed all day and don't sleep.

I think I'd go for the movie marathon or the stay in bed all day - either option.

Oh I love the list. Especially the dancing in the rain suggestion. Too bad ours is a little chilly today...and my other half isn't HERE right now. So I guess it's sleeping for me!

Thanks for the suggestions on my blog about places to visit.

It's snowing in my part of the world...but those things could work for me too.
