I don't know about the rest of the world but here in North Central Pennsylvania it is a cold, wet, rainy, gray day. I am lucky enough to have the rest of the day off and was planning on doing a day trip...but it's just YUCK outside and so I have decided to stay home, sit by the fire, have myself some hot tea or cocoa and read...maybe even snooze for a bit. I am cold to my bones so playing the fiddle to pass the time isn't going to work right now. How about you? What do you like to do on days such as these?

He bakes on dreary days.

Baking is definitely a good idea.

Toll House cookies? Gingerbread men? Dark rye bread made with cocoa, beer, and caraway seeds?

And a nice cup of exotic coffee while you're cooking would hit the spot. If the weather is as nasty as you say it is - put on some reggae music to warm up your dancin' feet.

Crank up the wood stove in the kitchen, brew up some fine Antigua coffee and head back to bed with the P-Vine fir a little snuggling...

Yup, bring them days on...

Reading in bed, surrounded by pillows and cats. Decadent reading, too-- romance novels, gory mysteries, silly adventure-hero yarns, etc.

Even better, listening to old radio programs from OTR's free MP3 download page. In the dark of course.

On cold, wet, rainy, gray days I like to drive to New Orleans. It'll probably be just as cold, wet, rainy and gray there, but the food's a lot better.

In cold weather I always crave a hot soak in the tub in the evening. Baking, making soup, burning good fragrant candles. My fireplace doesn't draw very well, so I'm more likely to set candles in there to burn (they look good through the glass) than I am to burn an actual log. An evening spent sewing with music or watching a movie with cats curled up nearby is nice. Reading a good book (with cats, etc.)

Go to the Mudcat, while searching Mudcat threads...

Come to think of it, I tend to do that on many days....

Except for driving anywhere it sounds like rainy days are fine for most of you. I've got the wood stove, tea and Cafe covered but it's going to be a busy day accomplishing all the rest of those notions!!! AND, today, there's NFL football! on a Saturday! To think I was sad because I couldn't get up country to my camp when there's so much to do here. I hope the mice don't get lonely up country... there's no TV, they don't know anything about the wood stove (except those that didn't get the cheese), most don't read, I drank all the booze, they can't bake anything because they crapped in the bake goods,... enough.

well, there have been so many shut-in days
during a pandemic lockdown
that this seemed a good thread to refresh.


Anybody else breaking out the jigsaw puzzles?
Where I'm staying,
there's a table in a common area
with puzzle pieces being slowly put together over time,
just sitting there the rest of the time.

I've dug out some old jobs that I'd given up on as I wasn't getting anywhere with them.

I'm still not getting anywhere with them.

Someone early in the thread seems to think 'dreary days' means 'rainy days' - not the same thing at all.
Here, it has been snowing for an hour and the garden is looking very pretty, especially my Christmas tree, which is back outside until next December.
The suggestions for making soup are perfect. But first, some decent coffee

What constitutes dreary has mutated, for me, I was noticing.

Used to be dreary meant weather I would rather shelter from than be out in.

Now I don't go out in any weather if I can help it, so those days of [mostly] cold rain are comforting now, as they lift the feeling of confinement and shade it into a feeling of comfortable refuge.

Ah, the comfort of horrible weather. Dreary? That is being stuck inside on a sunny, warm day.

They finished the jigsaw puzzle quickly here;
it was of candy bars or rather of their colorful wrappers.

I think this residence
has some more challenging jigsaw puzzles to be done, though.

I had to do some hand sewing, so I put the phone on Speaker and called up two women who live alone and need company. We yakked and yakked, and I got the project done.
