Rainy Day


Today is a cold, wet , rainy day.

Nothing glamorous about it. Just miserable and foggy. Like my mind.

I am not in a particularly good mood today. I want to crawl back in bed and sleep.

But I have so much catch-up to do. Which, by the way, I don’t feel any desire to do today.

Sometimes, I feel it would be better to stay behind for the rest of my life than to try and catch up all the time.

Just as I seemed to get on top of things, I got error code -36 on my photo files…and there went the last bit of hope I had for the day.

I decided that it was Rainy Day’s fault.

Rainy days can really drag you down if you are not feeling your best already.

But then I remembered…another Rainy Day .

Rainy days can be fun when your mood is not in the way…

Rainy days can be romantic – when you are warm and cuddled up…..

And in Africa where I come from, Rainy Day always brings the most beautiful sunsets.

I guess it’s not Rainy Day’s fault today. Maybe it is just me.

And then there is always the promise of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Maybe there will be something good coming from this crappy day.

Something beautiful.

So, I’m wondering..how did Rainy Day treat you today ?

    Hi Ilze, you are not alone! I reckon most of the people in Seoul feels the same today, together with foggy and cloudy day since morning!

    BTW, what a beautiful sunset and rainbows South Africa has! WOW!
    If I’m not mistaken, I haven’t seen rainbow in Seoul since I moved here, 4 years a go!

      Yep – no rainbows here..that is why it is probably harder for me to enjoy the rainy days ! But soon I will be in SA , so it will be time to watch the beauty after the storms again.

    I love the sweet smell of rain… especially in Namibia & South Africa!

    The combination of rain and dust have a déjà vu effect on me, reminding me of…

    – cinnamon and pancakes!
    – freshly brewed coffee (Starbucks if you’re lucky!)
    – our family spending time together
    – the smell of dust and rain lingering in the air like an expensive Chanel perfume 🙂

    Bring on the rain!

      Yovanka – that just made me miss those African rains even more ! See, here there is no smell attached to it. Just dampness. Love the reminder you sent across !!

    Oh my goodness, I too had a mierrrrk day yesterday, I felt like the brightness had been sucked out of me and replaced with dirty, dull, greyness and lethargy. It must have been the weather!!!! I hope today is bright and bubbly for you!

    • Ilze says:

      Nicole – I know you have had rainy days this year even when it was actually bright and sunny outside….so it needs to stop now for you – and be bright and sunny UNDER the umbrella !!
