Fall is truly full of surprises when it comes to weather. At least where I live, there haven’t been many rainy days, but I’m sure they’re just waiting around the corner. So I wanted to put together a little list with all the fun things you can do, when it’s raining buckets and you just really don’t feel like leaving the house. Most of these things may seem pretty obvious, but you never know, where people get ideas from.
scrapbooking. Honestly, it’s one of the best ways to get creative. I just love filling these books with memories and it’s a pretty way to have it all in one place.
play video games. I’m not a big gamer, but a round of Super Mario on an Super Nintendo is definitely a good idea. Or whatever you like playing. That reminds me, I’ve been wanting to play Theme Hospital again, forever.
read. If only I had time to read all the books I own. But there is nothing greater than getting comfy with a good book, while listening to the sound of rain. And don’t forget a nice cup of tea.
do a puzzle. Once in a while, I just really feel the urge to put together a fun puzzle. I still have some Disney ones waiting for the right time. But I get really obsessed with it and try to finish in a day.
binge-watch your favorite TV show. I mean, so obvious, right? Although I don’t really need it to rain for this one, cause it’s my umber one activity, but I do feel less bad about it.
sort out your closet. There is no better feeling than having everything organized. You can also donate some things and sell others. And of course you’ll have plenty of room for new pieces.
a good online shopping spree. I honestly prefer this over actually stepping into a store. I can do it in my pajamas, I don’t have to wait in line, I don’t have to try on clothes and look at myself in terrible lighting and I can just order a ton and send it all back, if I don’t want it.
a chill night with friends. Hanging out together with maybe pizza and drinks is a guarantee for lots of laughter. Just sharing old memories and of course gossiping is the best.
bake some cookies. Just the smell of freshly baked goods in the house is amazing. So why not find a new recipe and get your baking on.
put in a pamper day. Take a bath, if that’s your thing, put on a facemask, paint your nails and whatever else you can do to pamper yourself. And definitely take a nap.
write. Next to watching TV shows, this is what I do most. Writing is the one thing I would give up everything else for. It’s my biggest passion and just my favorite thing to do on any day. Except for maybe sleeping.
a good cleaning. I mean, when does anyone really have time to just deep clean everything, all in a day? I can’t do it when I work, or when I have plans on the weekend, but a rainy day, where I actually find some motivation, is perfect.
a movie marathon. What better time to watch all three Hunger Games movies, or The Lord of the Rings, or maybe even Harry Potter, if you’ll take the whole 24 hours. And make sure to make yourself some microwave popcorn.
