If you’re anything like me, I have no idea what to do with myself when I open my curtains after a few (i.e. no less than 3) cups of coffee and find it rainy and dreary in the middle of summer. Luckily enough, I’ve put in the leg-work (20 years worth) and devised the perfect Fayetteville Rainy Day.
Use the rain as an excuse to treat yourself to a new Friday x Saturday graphic tee, which is so soft I’ve strongly considered looking into how I can ditch every single other shirt I own and sport them exclusively for all occasions.
I am an of advocate visiting bookstores and libraries on the daily, but for those who are less than enthusiastic about reading, rainy days are the ultimate days to get out of your comfort zone, find your own lil nook, and crack open a book. Or crack open your smartphone and *read* insta captions. Who am I to judge?
Calories don’t count on rainy days. Isn’t that how the saying goes? No? Hm. Though baking cookies is by no means categorized as a rainy-day-only activity, you might as well.
I personally feel “rainy day” is synonymous with “movie day”, so don’t feel bad when you put off a couple responsibilities and curl up with Cher and Dionne. Blame your lazy day on the rain and your boss will TOTALLY understand. Promise.
