Since half of the year here in the Philippines is rainy season, you get a lot of days to do something. For me staying at home lets you do a lot of things and to relax when you want. But today was a sudden rainy day. Sudden because the weather was fine this morning, nice and sunny. Suddenly the skies darkened and the wind became cooler. Thunder and lightning and a heavy downpour happened. I had today planned as a day for myself, a day of pampering. And since it was a home service, the better .
Sometimes during the rainy days we stay at home, check out the roofs if there is a leaky one and the windows too. I try to make the day worthwhile. Sometimes I clean out the drawers and cabinets. Check canned goods for expired dates and even clean out the refrigerator. It is better because it is not hot so I don’t tire out fast nor do I get sweaty and sticky.
Also I try to get tasks done. Anything that I have been putting off. Sometimes I’m lucky I don’ t have much to do.
I know sometimes you feel sleepy and just want to sleep and be lazy. I know we all want to but we have to try to be productive. But it is also good just to give in once and a while and be lazy, especially if the whole week you were busy.
So since the whole week and more I was busy with problems, stressed out and not feeling well, I decided to make this day “my day”. I had a home service for all my pampering from money I saved so I won’t touch the household budget. The best was that it rained and made the day cool and relaxing. So after this I am going to lie down and be lazy. Maybe watch some series on my laptop for a while. It has been quite a while that I was able to do that.
So today is my day….what do you do on rainy days???
