Raining and giving…

 Tuesday Chatter


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.

“There is no such thing as bad weather,
only different kinds of good weather.”
John Ruskin

    1. 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
