A Rainy Summers Day

“Don’t be angry with the rain; it simply doesn’t know how to fall upwards.” – Vladimir Nabokov


It was rainy day yesterday. I woke up to the pitter patter on the window,and listened to it again as I fell asleep last night. I secretly love rainy summer days when you have no where to go – ie yesterday. I do get headaches from the pressure in the air so once I pop a few Advil I am good to go. I think there is something so cozy and comforting about being inside under blankets watching Netflix and hearing the slight pitter patter on the window.

That was my day yesterday. I woke up, I made a tea (David’s Tea; I combined “Pink Lemonade” and “Pink Passion fruit”), I sat on my couch with a fuzzy blanket and indulged in Netflix until about 2:30 when I switched to my “rainy day” playlist on Grooveshark while I did some blog reading.



I couldn’t help but find the humor in this sign that I made and hung on our wall. I suppose it is supposed to be interpreted in a figurative way but the literal way is more ironic.


My rainy day playlist is very slow, soft tempo stuff. Jamie says “slow, sad and depressing”. I disagree – it makes me happy. You can find the playlist here.

+ Do you like rainy days?
+ Do you have a favourite rainy day movie?
+ What is your favourite music to listen to on gloomy days?

  1. Rainy days are the norm here in Ireland πŸ™‚ I love being inside and hearing heavy rain pelt against the window.
    However, today is a hot and sunny day, it’s 1pm and my brothers and I are still in our pjs, getting ready to watch Despicable Me 2, drink hot chocolate and have absolutely no intention of doing anything at all! Yay for sunny-but-should-be-rainy days πŸ™‚
    Love the playlist by the way – tell Jamie it’s nourishment for the ears and soul!

    • Nourishment for the ears and soul!! LOVE IT!!! I love me the odd rainy day although does it not get dreary after awhile? I guess it wouldn’t be any different than having sun most of the time, gives you something to look forward too – rain or sun. Love Despicable Me “don’t judge me, I was born to be true, not perfect”

  2. I’m craving a good rainy day! I mean, I love the sunshine (ps: I LOVE that sign on your wall, like, im going to steal it thats how much i love it) but I would LOVE to spend a rainy day snuggled under blankets watching TV! The last few times it rained I have had to work, which is the worst because all I want to do is be lazy when it’s raining!!

    • Thank you!! I love my sign. It was super easy (but took a long time) to make. I went to Home Depot, bought the wood, painted it 2 coats of white, did the boarder.. then the letters. I didn’t have carbon paper so I had to make my own, then trace the letters to the board, then paint them all in, sanded the crap out of it, then stained it with tea since I could not find my stain haha. It smells slightly like english breakfast.. I love the quote/song lyric. I made another one for our washroom with “Start each day like it’s your birthday” – equally as amazing!
