What is your favourite thing to do on the weekend when it is pouring down with rain outside?
Its Sunday today and the rain has not stopped for a while, I won't complain as we went for over 2 months without any. I love getting a giant umbrella and going for a walk, always makes me smile, I love the smell of rain, especially summer rain. I always get hungry too, I love some Thai or Malaysian or spicy Chinese in this weather. What about you?
Book. Tv. Movie. Computer. For a convenient warmer-upper: those spicy cup-a-soups or black tea/coffee. I never did pick-up the drinking alcohol at home habit. (I love the rain as much as the sun. Sure, I find cover when its absolutely pouring. But I do the same when its absolutely stinking hot. But for light rain...love it on my head/face/shoulder.)
Where I live we have snow, and single digit temperatures on the Fahrenheit scale so Celcius is about negative 10. I'm not going outside unless I have to. I have 8 or 9 books from the library that are waiting to be read. I have a quilt in progress for the new grandbaby that will be here in May, I have some delicious teas. I have no shortage of stuff to do, even if it is Netflix and chill.
I'm always up for Thai food. In fact, that's what I have for breakfast every day.
I live in Thailand, so no wonder!
During rainy season, I lay my stuff out on the bed, then go read a Kindle book, watch a Netflix series, do the exercises I do inside anyway, such as racing up and down the long hall on my (new invention) gallopers, doing pull-ups, taking the elevator to the ground floor, then walking up the stairs.
When I hear the pouring rain and booming wind waning, I quickly grab my umbrella and ease out the door. The storm has to be over, though, since during the monsoon rains, rain doesn't fall straight down, but fills the air from all directions, and the high wind gusts make umbrellas useless.
When I commuted to work on my motorbike during rainy season I wore a Frogg rain suit.
I don't know what to tell you. I like walking in the rain and getting wet... been doing it since a kid. We, in Puerto Rico we have rainy weather food... like codfish soup with avocado or shrimp gumbo and tostones (fried, smashed plantines). And a lot of drinking... rum drinking.
