Accept the Rain
Be Brave and go out in the Rain
Challenge yourself to rise about the dark clouds
Drink more wine…wine the rain away
Eat comfort food-paired with wine..
Finish an indoor project with a nice glass of wine
Get your body into a new yoga position
Hang in there
Isolate yourself….solitude is good for the soul
Juxtapose the Rain
Kill time by reading a good book
Lounge around with a nice glass of wine
Make a pot of soup…..pair with wine….
Nestle up with your partner
Occasionally add soft lighting to emulate the Sun
Position yourself to accept more rain, it’s inevitable in the Puget Sound
Query your friends to see what they are doing-it’s a better Retreat with friends and wine…..
Take time out of your once very hectic schedule to allow the rain to cause your own Private Retreat
Uncover your inner child with a child-like activity: coloring, playing board games, watch your favorite Disney Movie
Viognier chilled would have you retreat to a warm sunny day memory….drink more wine….
Wishful thinking may help the rain go away
X-ite yourself by trying something new
Yearn for the sun, check the temperature in the tropics
Zap away any negative rainy thoughts, after-all it’s only rain.
Rain is part of life in the Northwest. While it’s sometimes difficult to embrace the rain, there are ways to retreat from it. The last thing you would want is to let the rain get you down; it’s raining today in Seabeck at Siloam Retreat-we shall use this day to accomplish great things that we otherwise would not be able to if it were not raining- it’s suppose to rain tomorrow as well, perhaps a nice two day indoor project.
