Rainy days

This morning it poured down here in Brisbane. In fact it may have rained all night as I was caught in it at midnight after watching Newcastle get beat by Tottenham… a goal that really shouldn’t have went in. The weather cleared up nicely by this afternoon.

I am not sure about you however I love a rainy day. The soothing sound of rain hitting the ground chills me right out, I have been using rainfall soundtracks on Spotify and YouTube to help me concentrate on writing too with great results. I also love that it gives me an excuse to wind down a little and just stay in one spot without the urgency to get out the house and into the world. It doesn’t feel so much like a wasted day if the sun isn’t blazing.

But it doesn’t mean the day is unproductive, more that it is just productive in a different way. Less physical and more sit and read a book or blog. It gives us a different way to go about the day and I like that. Rain has been rare in Brisbane recently so it was a positive change.

How was the weather where you are this weekend? Are you a fan of a rainy day? I feel my fellow Brits will be strongly against me on this one!

  1. I’m new to your blog. I don’t mind the rain as long as it’s not accompanied by lightning and thunder. I hate seeing the lightning because I know wait can do. My hubby on the other hand is more like you. He loves to see the rain falling and also just to hear it. Great post.👍🏾

    1. I do like a storm with it! As long as it doesn’t cause disruption. However saying that a storm isn’t good for relaxing as I am always on the lookout for the lightning strikes. Just rain for me if I want to close my eyes and chill 🙂

    1. I think a hard rain is a nice break from continuous sun and heat, especially for farmers and the people needing it. But some love it and some hate it, I guess we just have to embrace it 🙂

  2. By our news reports, Australia can use all the rain it can get right now.

    We’ve finally got real cold temps & it makes things impossible for us to go out in anything but the Go-Bus, which is door to door service. -26*C. at the moment with wind chill making it feel like -35*C.
