A RevGal Rainy Friday Five

Sally, a RevGal from across the pond, asks this Friday Five:

It is Friday which is my day off and it is raining, which means that an outing to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park has been cancelled. So what to do, I am currently scanning the internet for possibilities. I think we will head into York to visit theArt Gallery.How about you? What do you do on a rainy summers day?

1. At home?  I tend to go one of two extremes — find a cozy corner and read, or attack a closet or pantry and clean it out.

2. In your local area?  Go see a movie at a matinee, maybe stopping for take-out to eat at home.

3. If you are away on holiday? Pretty much like home, though I don’t have to feel productive. I just chill. One vacation there was a balmy summer rainstorm (no lightning or thunder) and all of us ran out and played in the puddles. Our kids still remember that.

4. Name a rainy day read. I tend to go back to old faves, like a travel to Narnia or perhaps Middle Earth. 🙂

5. Is there a piece of music/ a poem/ story that cheers you up? One retreat I attended, it poured absolutely every day of the weekend. We had a “sing off” between teams trying to sing songs that had “rain, showers, wind, thunder” etc in the lyrics or the title. It was hilarious. Everything from “Eensy Weensy Spider” to “Rainy Days and Mondays.”

Bonus: post a rainy day photo! Here’s one from an aftermath of a late fall downpour. I loved watching the droplets fall from the branches outside my window.
