So, what do you like to do when it rains or when there's a storm? There's a storm here and I'm indoors where its warm and dry. I'm also listening to some good music as I type this. Normally, when it rains, I like to stay in bed and put on a good movie. Maybe even catch up on some blockbusters or catch on up a good book I've been reading. If not, I'll pick up something I haven't read before. If I'm not doing all that I've just mentioned, I'd be sleeping. I always find it a ten fold relaxing to sleep when it rains. I like the sound of the rain. How about you?

Hello there kitty42! It's cold here right since it is raining. I'm in my comforter and jammies while responding so I'm all comfy. I love movies, too. I sometimes try and dig up old stuff just to watch for fun. I hope your family stays warm and dry so no one catches a cold. Happy mylotting :-) and thanks for sharing.

I wanna stay dry, thanks hehehe. I'm afraid of illness, yes, because when I get sick, it's not easy for me to get well since I have a health condition. I'm reading a book by David Sedaris. He's always sarcastic and makes good entertainment. Thanks for the comment!

Hello rg. I hate getting wet too. I usually feel bad when I'm outside and it rains. But when it rains and I'm at home, I just watch movies, play games on the computer, surf the Internet, or read books. I find all these hobbies very relaxing. Oh, and I almost forgot, I also eat lots of food while I'm watching movies.

Hello kitty. I've read The World Is Flat too. It's a good read. It's nice to know that another person enjoyed this book too. But I haven't tried reading it while it's raining. Maybe I'll try tomorrow if it rains. It has been raining here for a week now, so I think I have a good chance.

Well I do find it quite relaxing when it rains and calming too if you don't have to drive in traffic. If I'm home I prefer reading a good book while I'm listening to music. For some reason I like listening to classic music when it rains. Also watching a movie, possibly going to a movie, go to hot yoga, hang out at a coffee shop that plays cool music. Hmmm...Possibly meet friends for lunch or something, or if I really feel like hibernating, I'll maybe bake something like cookies for example. I definitely don't like going shopping then because the Malls I find tend to be quite busy. Well, that's about it.

You just enlisted some of the things that I like to do. Although, I did try hot yoga and didn't last very long because the heat made me dizzy. The temperature was set at 36 degrees celcius.

Well, do you know that in my class the temperature is set to I believe 40C,however I've looked at the humidity and it says it's around 50! Yup that's pretty hot all right, especially when it's a hot day outside and you come inside and sweat in that heat! OMG sometimes I just have to lie there for a bit when I get overheated, or they might open the door for a bit to let in some cooler air. Well, I haven't gone that much lately since it's been nice out, I just prefer to run/hike in this forested park nearby. Also there's a real Biotch of an instructor that teaches there quite a bit....:( Have you ever done the 30 day challenge where you do it for 30 days straight? You should try it, it's quite brutal. Well, ta ta going to the beach now. :)Enjoy the weekend.

I tried to do the 30 days challenge but I stopped halfway into it because I was losing too much weight and I don't need to. I just need to maintain my form. I'm 5'2 (yes, short but average by asian standards) and I weigh about 100 lbs. If i'm not doing yoga, I'm either running or weight training. :-) I wanna last long but then I really can't because of the heat and humidity. 40C? Wow, I'd probably faint lol.

Oh yes, i love the sound of a storm. Sometimes just listening or even watching it. Its very relaxing and calming to me. I heard once before from a friend that its God's way of cleaning things. I guess thats the most calming thought of all. I have also heard that its good to unplug all electric things while there is a storm. I have been guilty of that. Ive played tv and video games during storms.

That's a nice way to think of it, "God's way of cleaning things". I always think about "new beginnings" or "washing away" bad things when it rains. It's just a metaphor but I find it refreshing; that feeling after the rains are gone. Thanks for sharing and happy mylotting.

Rain for me, reminds me of Christmas. So, I sew like crazy!!! I would make all my daughter's Christmas gifts and I would always do it when it rained. Now it is a case that when it rains I work on teddy bears for Christmas sales. If I'm not sewing, I will work on cleaning house.

I love rains..only problem in India is if it rains heavily then everything is waterlogged. Roads have water, sewer jam simply because Govt employees of India donot work at all and they let every drain and sewer have lots of mud and dirt and when it rains heavy they choke. In rains i love to get wet but what i like most is dzilling when very small drops which dont even make you fully wet but give ur face a very nice feeling. If i am home then i would like to eat pakoras and tea. in case you donot know what pakoras are kindly follow this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pakora

Thanks for sharing. That's very unfortunate to have lousy Government servants. I hope the situation improves there. I did look at "Pakoras" and I remembered that some of my Indian friends in High School used to eat that. Come to think of it, I did have a taste of it, too, and quite enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the info :-)

yes true that they dont keep the drains clean clean . It is not only they dont work but if you know corrupt system then they would want it water logged for a couple of days so it becomes news. Govt release a lots of funds which can be misutilised for their personal use. So it was estimated by Rajiv Gandhi our ex prime minister that only 15% of funds is used for purpose it is meant for and rest goes in the pocket of the corrupt officers, politicians and bureaucrats.

I love the sound of rain and I would usually do the same thing you do. Get into bed with a drink and chips and a good movie. The other two things would be to read a good book or sleep. I love to sleep when its raining.

Although I live in the desert and we seldom get rain, I just love a storm. If it is warm weather I will go out in the rain and enjoy it. If it is cold, then I like a nice hot cup of chocolate and maybe early to bed. I love to sleep in the rain, too.

If it's cold and rainy, I love to sleep in. If it's humid and rainy, I get grumpy, stay on the couch, watch tv and vegetate. It's hard to focus and concentrate with bad weather for me.

Most of the time when it rains here it is warm as our winter is the dry season here! So, depending on what I am doing at the time, I like to watch it and even get out and have fun in it! My kids love to do that too. When they were younger, they would strip off their clothes and play in the waterfalls and rivers that had suddenly sprung up from nowhere! I like to wash my car sometimes when it is raining heavily and warm as it saves water! When it rains in the winter and it is cold, then I am usually on this computer or reading a book!

One of my favorite things to do on a rainy day is to curl up on the couch and read a good book. If it is chilly and damp, I will crawl under the blanket with the book. I also like to take a nap when it rains, the sound of the rain is so soothing and very easy to fall asleep to. You may think I am strange to say this, but I also love camping in the rain, As long as I can set up my tent and campsite before it starts to rain. I love to sit under the tarp or in the tent when it rains and I love to sleep in a tent when it rains. There is nothing more refreshing than the smell of the rain or right after the rain stops. That is truly the freshest air to breath.
