in case you're under cloud cover too, i've pulled together some rainy day essentials to keep you smiling no matter what the weather's doing.
drink this: nothing is homier than hot tea on a gray day. my personal favorite is chai. i love the spiciness of it. i let my tea steep for a few minutes, then add 1 tsp of sugar in the raw & 1 tbsp half & half. (much tastier...and healthier...than starbucks' super sugary chai tea latte)
watch this: your favorite movie from when you were younger. on my list would be father of the bride (with steve martin), only you or an alfred hitchcock flick
eat this: comfort food! rainy days call for some old-fashioned staples. like chicken soup, mac & cheese or some kind of yummy baked good.
do this: give yourself a break and indulge a bit. read a book, take a bath or listen to some soft music. rainy days are a great time to embrace the quiet and slow down.
rain, rain (don't) go away : )
