Remember how hot it was during summer that some of us wished it’s rainy season already? Guess what, it’s here! lol. It’s been raining hard for the past week and I hope that everyone is safe because I’ve been hearing news about the flooding in Metro Manila and the great traffic caused by heavy rains. In fact, here in our place, some are already flooding too. Please take care, you guys!
Nevertheless, this gloomy weather makes it really difficult to go out, and even get out of bed! I wish I could spend all day sleeping and staying in bed, but I can’t and I shouldn’t! lol. For those who don’t need to commute to work, what do you do at home to make the bed weather a little more productive?
Here are some of the things we do during rainy days.
1. Bathe in the rain 🙂
If you are like Nate and I who love to play in the rain, do this! lol. Every once in a while we bathe in the rain, together with other kids in the neighborhood. The heavier the rain, the better. Haha.
I like to do this because it takes me back to my life when I was a kid – a worry free, happy kid. Plus, it’s an awesome bonding with Nate. I’m fortunate that we have awesome neighbors who completely understand that, in fact some of them do the same! Haha.
Many people love to take advantage of the rainy days to watch movies. Although I don’t really do this often, because first, Nate can’t stand watching an entire movie, second is I don’t want to watch rated PG movies with him, even those with fight scenes. But sometimes, we’d watch cartoons together. This very seldom happens. Huhuhaha!
3. Eat!!! Yeah!!!
Champorado, pancakes, sopas, pancit, soup, saging na saba, name it! Ilabas ang lahat ng masarap kainin sa tag-ulan! Haha. I don’t know why but there’s always something about rainy season that makes us want to eat!
4. Get cozy in bed
We all love to do this, don’t we? Specially with our kids and hubby! Or even do it alone, it’s just nice to get lazy over the wonderful bed weather, isn’t it? You can read even read your fave book, or watch your fave movie, or talk to someone online, or do nothing but sleep! Haha.
Filipinos are best known for their awesome talent in singing karaokes! Haha. When it rains, you can “birit” any song you want! Wag mag alala, di ka maririnig ng kapitbahay pag pumiyok! Haha. But if you’re like us, who don’t have videokes, you can just sing any songs with your kids in acapela or while playing guitar! Rainy days makes you want to just sing and dance with your love ones! Haha.
What do you like to do during rainy days? 🙂
