Today has been cold and rainy all day. I was having lunch with a friend who observed in a kind of despairing way about what a dreary day it was. It surprises me when people are unhappy when there is a dreary day. I told her a day or two of this kind of weather doesn’t bother me, it reminds me of where I grew up in Northeastern Ohio where it is often dreary this time of year. She made no response to my comment and we went onto other things to talk about. How do you feel about dreary days? Granted I don’t like it if there are several days of cold rain and no sunshine but a couple of days of it is sort of comforting.

It depends on whether or not I plan on going out. But on a day I want to stay inside and relax, rain is perfect.
For sure having to go out in the rain isn’t always my favorite thing to do. I do like to walk in a soft rain shower if it’s not too cold. Rainy days call for a book, hot chocolate, and a cat on your lap.
I like rainy days for writing and projects. 1 or 2 rainy days are my limit then bring back the sunshine. Thank you for linking to Tuesday Chatter.
Like you I am fine with a couple of rainy days. Growing up in NE Ohio I know about many days rain and it ain’t cheery.
Have you ever noticed how beautiful the sun shine is after we have had a run of rainy dreary days? :).
It does seem to have a special look and feeling and everything smells fresh.
I don’t notice many dreary days because I’m tied to my laptop most days. However, when I do go out, I have a vote whether to go out or not. 😀 😛 🙂
Nice being retired! Are you writing stories? A book?
I don’t like long stretches of “bad” weather but sometimes a rainy or dreary day is what you need to get things done. Otherwise I’d be outside or running errands.
Can’t say I get anymore done on dreary days. I like to curl up with the cats and a book…but then I like to do that any day.
Into each life a little rain must fall. I love cool, overcast, rainy days. We need them as much as we do warm, sunny days. It is this balance that leads to appreciation.
And it is useless to complain about something we have no control of. What you get is what you get.
