Thursday Thirteen

Welcome to edition 21 (or is it 22? I forget!)

13 Things to Do on a Rainy Day

1. Watch the rain. It’s peaceful and it’s actually interesting to watch the patterns created by the wind. This won’t take long. Go on to number 2.

2. Read a good book such as Grisham’s new novel The Appeal.

3. Take a nap. The sound of rainfall is soothing.

4. Watch a movie you’ve never seen before.

5. Pop popcorn or make milk shakes.

6. Play a board game such as Life or Monopoly.

7. Play card games such as War or Hearts.

8. Make a card for someone, anyone, the old-fashioned way using scissors, construction paper, and markers.

9. Organize your closet. You know you need to.

10. Write a letter (yes, an actual, snail-mail letter) to someone who lives “long distance.” Won’t they be surprised?

11. Re-discover your youth by creating a do-it-yourself craft with typical household items such as toothpicks, paper plates, and markers.

12. Surf the Internet. (Duh, you knew that was coming!)

13. Count your blessings.


  1. Girl after my own heart - I love rainy days.

  2. Heh heh, yep, knew the 'Net was coming...I find I get very sleepy on rainy days and so I nap a lot! Have a great weekend!

  3. all of these are good but #13 is my favorite...i think we all need to do that more often!!

    Happy Thursday Thirteen!! come see me and while you are there take me poll...i am interested in what you think!

  4. Believe it or not, I like to clean when it's raining. I'm not sure why.
    Happy tt!

  5. Good suggestions. I like #3.

  6. Thanks for reminding me I have letters to write :)
    Lovely list.....I would love a rainy day, no more snow please, but guess what is coming?

  7. I would like to be doing any number of these right now!

  8. I'm a big letter writer. When I travel, I take clear labels pre-addressed to 80 friends and mail them during the trip. It's sort of a lost art, huh?
