What do you do on a rainy day?

Today when I woke up to what I hoped was going to be a lovely Saturday, I found that it was pouring down rain and is fairly cold. No fun at all, since we have had sun most of the week and I was hoping to take a walk. (For those of you who have seen my tooth discussions, I haven't been feeling well enough until now - which was why I was hoping so much for today). Anyway, for me since the apartment is a mess from not feeling well all week I had no excuse but to start cleaning up a bit. This is not one of my favourite things to do on the weekend, but it has to be done, right! I'm taking my time off cleaning to hang around myLot, so I'd thought I would start this discussion to hear what you do on a rainy day that you have off work? Maybe also I can be so inspired that I hurry up and get the cleaning done so I can do what you suggested :) So what is your favourite thing to do on a rainy day? Is it something special that you treasure and wait and only do once in a while to make it feel more special, or are you so busy with work - kids - house etc that you never get the chance to "enjoy" a rainy day in this sense, there is always something to needs doing? Do you plan the day or do you just do whatever comes into your mind? Inspire me!

if it rain,i like to stay in and chilling,just get some me time,watch a film or tv shows that i like,or reading a book,or just chilling on the internet. taking the time to enjoy my day of chilling and not worry about anything. i mean i might clean as well if the weather rubbish outside, i cannot go and work on my tan so it force me to do the things i be putting off for awhile.

It is hard to choose, isn't it! I normally find that the time goes way to fast those days! I normally sleep in a bit, and then if you watch a movie or get online, suddenly its afternoon!

I will at least catch up on somethings that I have been putting off for so long. I will read a book. Stay on the Internet, if my husband dosen't beat me to it..

If you get to the computer before your husband, does he leave you there in peace or does he stand over your head to try to make you finish so he can sit there? My boyfriend tends to do that sometimes, asking me several times when I'm finished etc.

I like to watch movies or read a good book. If I am feeling energetic I get out paint and start painting a room. Once in a while I will move furniture around too. My family perfers the books and movies for me to do*L*

Do you finish those projects you start? I am a bit like that, I get bored and then I think I should do something like rearrange the furniture or clean the cupboards or something, but then I get sick of doing it halfway through..
