    Find your favourite coffee shop and sit there with a great coffee and write a few dozen hubs smile

    My coffee + food recommendation for such an adventure are a Skim Mocha + Banana Bread (Toasted w/ butter).

    Have a nice and productive day!

    I usually take a slow walked to the library, and most of the time according to how much rain, I love to do gardening, the soil is much softer and the ground is easy to fork and plowed.

    Rain is awesome I love it! My gf gets angry when I go out in the rain because she thinks I'll get sick -_- but I love it. You could always go jogging in the rain if it's not too cold, thats always fun for me. Or stay indoors, plays some video games, cook some pizzas, turn off all the lights and watch some movies. If you're not a rain person, then this can be your time to relax and enjoy some peaceful time alone. (or with someone else)

    Going for walks in the rain is one of my favourite things! Especially splashing in muddles.

    Especially after finishing the walk, I like to come home, sit beside a fire if I can, change into warm, comfy clothes. Then I sit in my favourite chair with a good book and a warm drink and listen to the rain smile

    I like the comforting feeling I get just by sitting in my room and being alone with my thoughts as I listen to the sound of the rain on my window. Just chill and enjoy it. If you like to be out in the rain, and there is a lake, pond or river near you, then I recommend going to one of these places and watching the effects of the rain on the water and the wild life. I learn something every time I do this.

    If you're staying indoors:
    go through your stuff and find things you have seen since the 1800s
    watch movies and eat popcorn
    catch up on tv
    make something
    research things on the internet that you never get the time to
    write hubs!
    catch up on house work
    have a few friends over
    hope this helps for your next rainy day smile

    There are a lot of fun things to do when it rains. One thing that I think is really a great idea is getting a bunch of people together and have a photo scavenger hunt. This article talks about doing it in a mall, but you can really do it just about anywhere. … n_san.html

    Hmmm...well there is shaving the family pet(s). That's always good for a laugh if you're into being gouged open like a field dressed game buck.

    Shaving the kids is good for a giggle too. Especially if you have daughters. Messing with their hair is highly recommended.

    Juggling lit dynamite, time it just right so it falls into a deep chasm before it goes off. You'll need to supply your own chasm.

    Mentally abusing your holiday ornaments as thy sit, once more, gathering ust in the garage, ttic, spare room, whatever. Make comments about them notbeing as sparkly, shiny, or somesuch. They hate that.

    Run around the house totally insane, bashing everyone with a French loaf.

    Pick your nose and then arrange it all on a sheet of posterboard and call it art.

    Pluck nose hairs out one at a time.

    Conduct an intellectual conversation with your breakfast cereal.

    Conduct an intellectual converation with any food you might have.

    Psychologically scar your children's stuffed animals.

    Stay all day in the loo with the door locked and make car noises while on the pot.

    Keep your hand in your pocket whilst talking to the better half and jingle your change as loudly as possible.

    Shall I continue. I mean this is...oh hi, doctor...

    (I do not literally condone any sort of abuse directed at children or animals, so please keep the hate to a minimum. It's all in satire anyway.)

    If I'm with other people board games are great.  If I'm alone I read a good book.  Also, I wear comfortable socks and a sweater and make hot cocoa.
