Rainy Days

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down. - The Carpenters


What is it about rainy days that just makes a person want to go back to bed?

Instead, I'm about to make squash pancakes (along the lines of squash bread -- before you think I'm grating squash and cooking it). It's easy to do and yummy and relatively healthy.

Just make pancake mix like you normally do. Then add cinnamon and some grated squash. You can also use grated apples or dices peaches.

I seldom make anything just plain.

In any case, today is a day for comfort food. Pancakes for breakfast, and I think I'm going to make chili for dinner, or something else that can simmer in the Crock Pot all day.

What do you do on rainy days?

========================




You Are Most at Home in the Bedroom



You're the type of person who finds sanctuary in your home. Your home is your private space.

While you may be a social person outside the home, it's very rare that you invite people into your home.



There's nothing like spending time alone in your bedroom - relaxing and reflecting about your day.

You truly treasure your time by yourself. You need to be able to recharge every so often in order to thrive.




Yeah... mostly right.

re quiz, I got bedroom as well and it's right.

Sounds like you feel a whole lot better. I hope all is feeling better in your home.

Enjoy your pancake breakfast.

A rainy day is perfect to put on some soothing music, read a book and relax in a chair while watching the rain fall down.

Have a great Saturday.

When it rains, I bake. Don't know why, but it seems right to me.

Have a great day. We have wind and 70 degree weather today.

In rainy days I sometimes bake, and also usually make some kind of comfort food like stew or homemade chicken soup. *G*
Weird enough it said my room most at home in was the Kitchen. *G*
You're the type of person who finds a lot of comfort in your home. You love to take care of yourself and others.
Your home is welcoming and open to all. You love entertaining guests and making them feel a part of the family.
There's nothing like spending an afternoon in the kitchen, whipping up treats for you and your loved ones.
You believe that the simple things in life can be the most enjoyable. You like give your time and love to people.
Not far off actually. *G*

I hope you have a good day and feel better!

I love staying in with my girls on rainy days. Mostly reading. I keep the tv on since I like the background noise. My girls like to all sleep in the livingroom while Im reading.
