Just yesterday we had warm and sunny weather but today it’s been pouring on and off.
Days like these make it not so fun to even just walk Booker. The sky is overcast. The ground is muddy and littered with debris of crunchy leaves that have gone soggy. Without a website like Buienradar, we would be in the dark about when the sporadic rain will fall. Let me tell you, it’s 100% unpredictable without checking the forecast hourly.
So how do we spend our rainy days at home?
Nothing feels better than getting snug on the couch with our little potato. Booker’s favorite place to sleep is the couch but as soon as we take a seat, she wants independence and finds a quieter corner.
We often indulge in hot tea, a good book, or video games.
My current favorite tea is a very strong English black tea found locally. It’s not as strong as I usually take my cup but it’s better than nothing. I usually make my tea milky and hot with no sugar or honey. Having too much sugar has made my bones ache as I got older so I do my best to avoid it when I can.
Since there have no new Game of Thrones novels, I’ve decided to backtrack a bit and read what George R. R. Martin wrote before we dove head first into Westeros. Currently I’m reading Fevre Dream and it’s just as magical as GoT!
As for my 3ds, I’m enjoying revisiting Pokémon and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I had started my first playthrough around September and it was my first 3ds game. I purchased the purple 3ds and New Leaf because I just couldn’t resist the hype any longer. I sold my game and deleted the saved data (I’ve never regretted something more!) but felt a hole in my gaming life without it. I bought it again, this time a European version so that I could play it once more.
And let’s not forget to moisturize! I got this lotion back in California when we went to visit in May. It’s from Cost Plus World Market and smells so much like spring time in SoCal. I grew up around miles and miles of orange groves and every spring I would drive with the windows down to get that sweet scent into my face. I’ve been searching years for something that captures that faint and nostalgic smell and this does that quite well. Unfortunately the scent doesn’t last too long and this is my only tube…
What do you do when it’s too rainy to go out?
