If touring my Rain Gallery and listening to my Rain Dance playlist aren't quite enough to entice you to pledge the Rain Appreciation Society, perhaps I can convince you with the following cozy scene. Don't get me wrong, I love running, letterboxing, picnicking, and all sorts of outdoor activities. But when I'm rained out (or in, as it were), I revel in the opportunity to create a snug-as-a-bug atmosphere. Imagine: lit candles in comforting scents, starry string lights, soft and colorful blankets, chunky wool socks, and a treasured book and/or favorite film. And if you don't have access to the real thing, this could help set the mood as well.
What are your must-haves in a snug-as-a-bug situation?
Please note: In the interest of a symmetrical vignette, I left out two of my favorites: warm beverages and cuddly kitty cats. In no way should this reflect upon their essentialness.
