The Calm During The Storm – Rainy Day Go Away!

Well, it’s another rainy day here in Greenville. Just blech, nasty, yuck.

If you had plans to go see the annual Shakespeare Festival in Falls Park – well, unfortunately you have to wait one more night. That’s been postponed due to the weather. I guess it really actually is “Much Ado About Nothing”, huh ☹

But, we all really shouldn’t complain, at least not too much. Even though it’s yucky outside, there’s plenty to do inside.

And with that said, here are some great rainy day ideas – some of which you may have not even thought of before!

  1. Create a blog! Even if you’re not going to publish it, it’s a good way to pass the time, and even just get some thoughts off your mind. However, if you would like to publish it, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that idea.
  2. Create a family recipe book. This could be a really good afternoon/evening to pull out all of those recipes from mom/grandmom/dad/aunt/uncle or even ones you just love that you’ve used online. Type them up and put them into your own Word doc that you can access at any time.
  3. Not all these ideas are necessarily things you should do with kids – and this is one of them. How about create your own cocktail! If you aren’t going out anywhere, this could be a good, and tasty, option for the evening.
  4. Have a board game night marathon. Get those pj’s on, make everyone comfy, pull out all those board games from the closet and dust them off. It’s a great night for some Scrabble, Monopoly, Clue and more!
  5. One of my personal favorites – if you have littles, have an indoor scavenger hunt. They’ll love searching all around the house for hidden items!

You see, rainy days really don’t have to go away. You just need to come up with some ideas on how to get past them (especially important with littles).

Stay dry out there Greenville! Things are looking much drier tomorrow – and even better for Memorial Day weekend!
