I love rainy days--maybe because they are few and far between here in "canyon country." I have so many outside chores much of the time, so always am pleased to be "forced" to stay inside for a change. I usually spend time sewing, or sorting and discarding stuff--organizing old photos, etc. Sometimes I just fix some popcorn and read. Too many good choices of things to do on a nice, rainy day!

Rainy day? What's that? Being in an exceptional drought, that concept is completely lost on me.

I think I'm with hitme. An honest answer would probably get me banninated.

Watching or photographing a sport that isn't concerned about the rain. I like football and soccer games in the rain. (I would prefer them in the snow, but that's a rarity for high school events. But two football playoff games were rainy last year.)

As far as indoor activities ... I'd be happy just watching a movie or House or something. It's just nice not to be in the rain if I don't have good reason to be.

I don't think it is appropriate to puts someones religeous beliefs to identify them on the OTS...

I'm with pywacket but leave out the dog, change tea to vino and I'm all set for a great day whether sunny or rainy. Incidently - we are having the best autumn that I can remember. Sunny and warm 95% of the time. Good for long walks observing natures changing colors. Just love it.

I'm with Pywacket - minus the dog and plus a Maine Coon Cat. Oh, first a trip to the House of Cha for Bubble then follow Pywacket's instructions!

I'd agree with thatgirl. Outside of that, I'd take a duck blind on a dreary November day over by Maple Hill on the Kaw. My Lab loves me...
