What to do on a rainy day

Mr. Bad weather is cheating on me. It's been three days that we're having pleasant windy days with dark clouds and still no drop of rain. Isn't it rude, mother nature? If you don't know, I'm a big fan of rainy seasons. I've been making so many plans in my mind for rainy season, maybe one day I'll wake up and rain would be out there to surprise me! I mean, a girl can dream.

Go OUT to enjoy the rain
Yes, please. And smile or laugh loudly. Go out and feel the rain. Maybe that's the best thing you and I can do on the rainy day. Since when I was a kid, my funny wish was to stand under the rain with an open umbrella. Just to do how stuff works in tv commercials, old days stuff. My granny's house is 50 seconds away from ours, so when it'll rain, we'll go to her house and reach the rooftop because it's an ideal place for rain suckers like us.

A playlist
Some people have workout playlist, sad-day list, let's make a rainy day playlist because you can never ignore the music. Play a song you love or a song with memories. Play a new song to fall in love with. She will be loved by Maroon 5 is a MUST for my rainy day's playlist. I've already made my playlist for upcoming rainy season (that doesn't seem to appear yet) but keep the hopes high.

Read a book
Or a magazine. Or re read the book you love most. Mine are The House By The Shore & Looking For Alaska (another John Green treat) Isn't rain the perfect occasion for book readers? Feel and absorb the words and fall in love with writer. Have fun reading.

Pick a good drink
Brew coffee and take sips in your favorite mug. Or make some tea. Or squeeze some lemons to make lemonade. My drinking priorities have lemonade on top. Oh and I think hot chocolate isn't a bad idea too.

Take shots
Because I'm a blogger and I like to capture things.
 This one is my favorite but it's completely blurry. Still, a beautiful view.

I love when rain drops hit the ground and make this view. Isn't it simply beautiful?

Day dream
We all have that time in a day where all we want to do is to throw a pillow on our faces and day dream. So rain is a perfect time for that kinda day dreaming. Throw your favorite pillow on your face and have a time for yourself. Psst, I have this pillow on my bed and I'm seriously in love with this little cute piece.

Paint or create
When it rains, I feel so calm. Maybe others feel the same too. It's the best time to paint something or create a thing or color a page or write a thought. Burst out your creativity.

That's all what's inside my mind atm. I can't wait for monsoon to come and meet and greet with me. Because I effing love rain. What are your ideas for a rainy day? Hot chocolate or lemonade?


  1. Love this post! I'm on vacation in North Carolina and it has rained SO much since I've been here haha. I've definitely done all of these things when it's rained here :) I'd say hot chocolate, only because it's cold rain here. Hope you get your rainy day soon!

  2. This is perfect! It has been a rainy few days in Alabama, and I am getting tired of watching Netflix all day. Thanks for the ideas! Off to make tea and paint! Whoohoo!

  4. Won't lie, when you said "take shots" at first I thought you mean like alcohol shots (enter LMFAO's Shots song) and I was like "well then, that's one way to spend the rainy day!"
    hahah! great list :)

  5. Definitely some great things to do on a rainy day! My favorite thing to do on a rainy day is watching movies!

  6. A couple of years ago we were camping and it began to rain. We sat around a campfire with two other couples and all sang songs about rain! So much fun, and I even got a short video of it :)

    Hope all is well with you Areeba.

  7. Thanks for linking up with us guuuurl :] May It Be is so calming, I never would have thought of it on a rainy day but now that you mention it, it really is perfect!

  8. I usually like to go run errands on rainy days because most people stay home and the stores are empty. That and I love showing off my clear umbrella :)

  9. On rainy days, I just like to stand in the doorway, sufficiently in and out of the rain's way, just taking all the beauty in.

  10. I've always wanted to stand in the rain, arms wide open, a but like the Titanic scene but with no ship! Ahaha, only I haven't done it yet, maybe the next time it rains. We have a lot of sun at the moment, not much rain :(

  11. I love rainy days too! I'm not sure that I want any right now though :) We have had enough of those so far this spring/summer.

  12. I love rainy days as well! Unless I have to be places all over the city and forgot an umbrella, haha. These are some great ideas though! :-) xx

  13. I have always wanted to just go out, whack on a raincoat and enjoy the weather- maybe I will next time xx

  14. i LOVE the calm feeling of rain. It just makes me want to sleep haha! Great playlist Aree, and thank you for linking up! Hope to see link up again!

  15. Great list, Areeba! I love that top graphic. Always love your designs.
    My daughter's current fave song is the new one by Demi Lovato and Cher Lloyd. I forget the name, but if it comes on the radio in the car, she asks to turn it up. So I think that song would definitely be on her playlist. =0)

  16. Rainy days are my favorite days! I just spent a semester in Ireland and it was rainy all the time...my dream weather! I love to put on comfy PJs or sweatpants, watch a favorite movie, and sip something warm. I love your list...and even though it's hot and sunny outside, I wish it was raining! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! xx

  17. I must admit, I'm a fan of rainy days too! In the summer I love the smell of rain onto hot pavement, reminds me of playing out in the summer!

  18. Really great list!! But you forgot one. Sleep. haha Best sleep is with the rain falling dont you think?

  19. I'm highly shocked you don't have any Norah Jones on your rainy day list...I'm a huge fall/rainy/foggy weather type person too :) Glad I found your blog from Natalie's sidebar! I love making new blogging friends!
