im sitting here browsing through myLot when suddenly it rained. and i'm thinking.. nice time to cuddle up in bed and read. it's going to be a cool day. it reminded me of my cousin who loves rainy days. she is sick with cancer. does anyone really know if one is safe from the big "C". i keep thinking it runs in the family...what's the probability i might get it too? makes me think what would i do with my life, myLot... will this ever come to pay? how about u? what comes to mind on days like this?

During rainy days, I only remember one thing. It was me and my boyfriend who almost get wet under the rain. We are about to go home that time when the rain started to fall. We don't bring any umbrella during that time, so we decided to run from the rain. Unfortunately the rain don't stop, we get wet all over our body. We feel cold that time, we just laugh over it.

Hello disvachic, my cousin is the same as usual. I am told she is more irritable nowadays. I'm not sure how to interpret that. I hope that means she is fighting to get well. I am sorry too about your aunt and grandpa (may their souls rest in peace). It's really good if we see someone survive this disease. More blessings to your aunt and good health for years to come. Yeah I can relate to laying around and watching movies. I can stay that way all day til my eyes can't take anymore. :) Thanks for dropping in.

Rainy season makes me much lazier because just like you, I would always hurry up in going home to get some sleep. It's cold so I always think of sleeping. But not only this, but eating as well. lol :)

Hi myworld_. haha welcome to the club then sleepyhead :) I think our body is trying to tell us to get more fuel to heat our core temperature or something. That is why I'm always hungry too on rainy days. I know the feeling, I guess our brain also gets cold and just makes everything inactive up there so we get sleepy hehehe. Don't believe eveything I say, I might be wrong ..lol. So nice of you to drop in, thank you. Have a great day!

Oh Augustta I love rain because there's always a rainbow that comes after it for me. Whether I see it or not. I love washing in the rain. The only times I dont like rain is when I need to go and do important stuffs and don't want to get wet and dirty. I always get that even when I have a big umbrella and I try to watch out for puddles. Not liking the rain is not strange at all. I had a friend who absolutely hated the rain. Thanks for you kind thoughts my friend. Have a great sunny day there!

before anything, how is your cousin doing now? Hope she's ok. Thoughts that ran through my head when it rains:(1) Good! I don't have to water my plants, saves me on water bill. (2) Geez! I can't go out! (Technically i can, it's just i don't enjoy it on a gloomy day. (3) I just washed my car! Give me back my money!( I use drive through car wash service). Anyway, i hope the sun is out tomorrow...now, where can i go...hmmmm (not a question, thinking here)... Have a good day!

Reading for me is cool when it rains. Sometimes I don't do anything at all. Just listen and watch the rain. Or like you plan what to do when the rain stops. Thanks, see you around.

I like listening to the Rain when I am in bed at night It helps fall asleep, what goes through my Mind though is that I am grateful that I have a roof over my Head and do not have to be on the Streets getting cold and wet, having to look for Shelter to try and stay dry, that I am lucky to be lying in a warm Bed

Hello gabs8513. Pitter-patter rhythm of the rain sure is hypnotic especially at night. Oh yes that is so true. Amen. I often see street people here in our place. They sleep anywhere with only a piece of cardboard or box. No blankets, not enough clothes to protect them from the rain. We are indeed more lucky than them. It was nice of you to drop in. I really appreciate it. :)

Hey crea80tiveguy I am not lazy! ;) I love working in rainy days. Do you know that I find it the best day for washing? Coz there is no one else washing during that day! In a household of more than a dozen people it is a good day and I thank rainy days hehehe.

'....rainydays and mondays make me sad'. being a reclusive person, i find it quite more so in rainy days. i get nostalgic, i get to reminiscene my haves and havenots, should and should nots and dos and donots, all the NOTs are more striken, emphasised. i get sad and down with thoughts from past. i could gaze through my window and could see an unfamously street urchin drenching in tattered clothes, carefree and happy, as if his whole happiness lies in the drops of water falling rom heaven! i just wish i could be one like him!!

hello mimpi1911. Everytime I see your name, reminds me of Malaysia. "... rainy days and Mondays always get me down.." sounds like a Carpenter song ;) I do like Carpenters. Some of their songs are good for rainy days. Wish I was that street urchin too. How simple life would be. A pleasure to see you drop in. Thank you so much.

Rain usally relaxs me unless it is thundering and lighting. I am sorry that it reminds you of your cousin and that she has cancer. I had a grandmother who had it.

Hi Shaun. Yes there is something soothing in the sound of rain falling down. It's quite alright. I have different thoughts at different times when rain comes down. It's just that that day, I was thinking so much of my cousin and those were the thoughts that ran round and round in my brain :) I'm sorry about your grandmother, may she rest in peace. Thank you for sharing your thoughts Shaun.

Sometimes when the skies are cloudy and the rain is falling I like to sit and watch as the rain drops hit the patio, fall to the ground and water my herb pots. When I feel in a pensive mood like that my thoughts turn to my family and my friends. What are they doing right now? Are they all ok? It's days like this when I feel that I am so lucky to have good friends around me and I know that the rain will stop soon enough and the sun will shine again

HI recycledgoth. I wish I had a patio and some plants to watch during rainy days. Sounds like a nice thing to do. Yes we are more than lucky to have people around who love us unconditionally. There's nothing like being secure in someone's love and knowing that whatever may happen we have a safe place where we belong. ;) Thank you so much for dropping in. A pleasant surprise for I wasn't expecting anyone, let alone two ;) I feel lucky.

Its sad to hear about your cousin and I hope she fights this awful illness. I do love rainy days, especially when it really comes down heavy. As Woody Allen once said "I love the rain - it washes memories off the sidewalk of life" from his hilarious film Play It Again Sam!! I tend to say this as well when it rains!! Big Woody Allen fan I'm afraid! I remember when I was young my friend and I got caught in the rain and got absolutely soaked. In the end we put our useless umbrellas down and just enjoyed the experience. It was so much fun. I often think about this when I see the heavy rainfalls.

hi ItTakesAllSorts, appreciate your kind thoughts. We all hope so too she can still fight it for a long time to come. Everything now is against all odds but we still believe in miracles. There's always a sunny day after the rain. Woody Allen fan huh? I know him, I always hear his name mentioned in magazines. But that's about the extent of my knowledge ...LOL. Guess I have to extend it some more. Must look up Mr. Woody. Oh what a lovely thing to play in the rain. I love washing in the rain sometimes hehe. Sounds weird even to me, I just love it. Appreciate the time you took coming here. Have a great day. May a rainy one come soon for you ;)
